Fine, beauty is relative, and thus, defined in various ways. So, then, let’s narrow it down. In terms of facial beauty, who among the male celebrities in the Philippines is most well-endowed?
There is indeed a long list of handsome Filipinos even if we narrow it down to facial beauty as the sole criteria. Normally, whatever is different in a group is considered special, or better termed as exotic. The Whites consider the Browns to be cute, while the Browns find the Whites to be attractive.
Thus, the mestizos are revered as the handsome ones in the Philippines. In the following list of the 10 most handsome Filipino faces of 2012, this mestizo preference is disregarded (although the list does have mestizos). Rather, the international eye was considered, which means, these men have the best faces that can be appreciated globally.
The links on their names were intentionally chosen to show the pictures of the men on their simplest, or their ugliest. Most of these pictures were those when they had no makeup to prove how handsome their faces really are whatever is the situation.
