Beauty Pageant Winning Make – Up Tips

Are you excited to win a beauty pageant? It is a known fact that winning a beauty pageant is not just about being beautiful. Beauty coupled with brains can bring you the winner title. Thus every action of yours should showcase grey matter.

Beauty pageant make – up involves a lot of extra care and smartness. It is must that you have to stand- out among the other contestants who are equally good like you. Hence follow these essential tips while you pick your beauty pageant look.

how to apply the make - up during a beauty pageant?

  • First and foremost rule before you pick any make – up; is to know your skin tone. Experts say that make – up should go along with your skin tone or else it wouldn’t enhance your beauty. Hence know your skin tone and pick a make – up kit that suits you. Spend about 5 – 10 minutes in front of a mirror to determine your skin tone:
       o Have a strip of golden fabric and silver fabric. Stand in front of the mirror, take turns and hold golden fabric and silver fabric close to your face.

o If golden compliments your skin, whereas the silver gives you an unpleasant look, ensure that you have a warm skin tone.

o If the silver compliments and golden makes you look dull, then you have a cool skin tone.

o If both compliment your skin, then you have a neutral skin tone.

Now, head to the make – up store and ask for a make-up kit that would suit your skin tone.

  • Don’t make your face glitter too much. Because in a beauty pageant judges would be looking for a contestant who has a smooth and natural skin tone. Hence to get rid of the shiny effect, apply a bit of face powder.
  • In comparison to your face, the foundation you use on eyes should be lighter. Also ensure that you apply a bit of that around your eyes, so that the eyes would outshine.
  • Make sure that you select eye shadows that are darker than your daily use eye shadows. The bright and strong stage lights would make you sweat and in turn it will affect your make-up. Hence to avoid the tired and shrunken eyes on stage, go for a darker eye make-up.
  • Apply blush on your cheek bones. Start from the ears towards the nose. Using blush will enhance your skin colour, also it will help you stay fresh under the harsh and bright lights on the stage.
  • While defining your eyes, apply eye liner just above your eye lash line. Use artificial eye lashes and then apply mascara to lengthen your eye lashes.
  • Wear a light lip colour, because light lip colours will make your lips look thinner and natural. Don’t go for a matte look, instead pick a glossy lip – colour. Outline the lips with a suitable lip liner.
