LOOK: Presidential candidates get dolled up

During the final leg of the Pilipinas Debates in University of Pangasinan on Sunday, presidential candidates prepared not only their statements; they worked on looking presentable too for their television appearance, for the millions of Filipinos who waited for the final face-off.

Here is a behind-the-scenes look at the power the make-up artist wields on the powerful.
