Beauty pageants are considered to be one prestigious event a woman could be into. Aside from having the chance to get the crown, you will also be able to showcase your beauty, intelligence and skill for everyone to see. However, winning a beauty pageant is not that simple and there are lots of things that you need to do in order to prepare yourself. You need to tone your body, learn how to dress up and apply makeup, how to walk well and prepare for the talent portion. All of these should be combined in order for you to make a big impression on the judges. Preparations should start off months before the pageant.
Toning your body is one of the hardest things to be done. It takes the longest time in terms of preparation especially if you have several bulges to get rid off. Start off by finding time to exercise. It might work better if you will enroll in a gym near your place and ask for an instructor to assist you. Stay away from fatty foods such as burgers. Get into a healthy diet by eating more fruits and vegetables. If possible, you may also try to get rid of snack time by drinking water instead. However, if you are really hungry, change your usual snacks and convert it into fruits. It might be very difficult to stay away from so much food and getting into lots of exercises but if you want to fit into that dream gown or that two-piece bikini during the pageant, all the sacrifices will be worth it!
Aside from sculpting your body, you should learn to choose the right clothes to wear during the pageant. Remember that you need to make a great impression during the pageant and it would help a lot if you will wear something that is a current fashion trend. Accessorize according to the outfit that you will wear. Proper accessories will help enhance elegance. Also, learn to apply makeup by yourself. Dressing rooms are usually small and you cannot bring a makeup artist with you. Learn how you can use makeup to enhance your beauty and not conceal it. It will be a lot better if you will try mixing and matching the clothes, accessories, makeup and hairstyles weeks before the pageant and look at yourself in the mirror so you will be able to have a self-assessment.
During pageants, wearing a high-heeled shoes or sandals is one of the ways to make appeal. Get yourself used to wearing the stilettos without making yourself look funny. Wear the sandals even while at home and practice walking around with it. This will let you get used to the height of the shoes.
Lastly, think of a certain talent that you are comfortable with. Make time to practice for it. Even if you want to standout among the others, try not to have a very unique talent like freestyle rapping. This will not showcase your elegance and might even turn the judges off.
