Biggest Pageant Tip #1: Always being ‘ON’

You are ‘ON’, whenever you hit the stage. You are definitely ‘ON’ when speaking with anyone involved in the pageant.  Importantly, you are also ‘ON’ while in the hair and makeup chair.

Hair and Make up matter a lot in the entertainment/pageant world. When you are in their chair be relaxed but present. Try to avoid being on your phone while in the makeup chair or hair chair. For sure, avoid eating or drinking while getting your makeup or hair done! Be respectful of people working with you and on you.

Biggest Pageant Tip #2: Leave Your Worries Behind. You are Good! Be yourself.

YOU are good and you already have everything inside of you that allows you to win.
Try to leave any worries behind when you walk into the building where the pageant is being held.

Additionally, when you are ON STAGE:  ALWAYS, ALWAYS ALWAYS, hold your pose. It doesn’t matter if your feet hurt or your leg is tired from being bent, you just do it, and you SMILE HUGE the entire time. Anytime your foot hits the stage: Always have a big smile and bright eyes. Always.

During the pageant, be aware of your hand movements. Be highly aware of your face movements. You always, always want to be smiling hugely. I know you might think it looks stupid, but that is how I won one of my biggest crowns (Miss Italia North America). The judges loved my smile.  Always hold your head high. Shoulders back. You are strong. You are the best. When you know this you will win.

I talk about hand movements because you want to pretend you have mittens on. Your fingers should be nice and together, not all crooked or clenched, or anything like that.  Just nice and relaxed, but fingers together (as if you were doing a queen wave).
