5 Grooming Tips To Put Your Best Foot Forward
Your overall personality and the way you carry yourself are important criteria to decide whether you will make the cut for a beauty pageant. However, there are various other factors that decide whether you will slay at a beauty pageant and earn the crown. No wonder, grooming is such an essential aspect of training for pageants. Here are 5 grooming tips that you must work on to #BeALittleMore if you have your eyes on that coveted crown.
1. Pay Attention To Your Health
It goes without saying that a strict diet and a rigorous workout routine is your Holy Grail if you’re aiming for a significant spot in the fashion and beauty industry. A beauty pageant is not just about appearing proportionate physically, it also demands nurturing your skin and hair – aspects that contribute significantly to your beauty. While what you eat does define the health of your skin and hair, you must follow a separate skin and hair care regimen for special attention to these features. A healthy body ensures a healthy mind, taking you one step closer to the crown.
2. Learn The Basics Of Perfect Makeup
Know the basics of makeup for different occasions. Your day makeup can be light and dewy while your makeup for an evening will be more elaborate. Similarly, understand the difference between makeup required for a day out at the beach and that which is appropriate for a party. Learn how to apply foundation and create just the right canvas for the other makeup products. Learn the art of applying eye makeup to introduce a character to one of the most important features. Experiment with different shapes for your lips to discover the one that suits you the best. Also, keep yourself updated on the latest trends in makeup, and what works for you and what doesn’t.
3. Invest In Wardrobe Basics
A pair of blue denim, a crisp white shirt, and a black shirt is an absolute must-have in your wardrobe. These can be paired with literally anything and everything to create a new look each time. Aur kya zaroori hai? A simple dress that you can accessorise to create different looks for different occasions for the day and the night. Equally important for your wardrobe are accessories that will let your personality shine further. Go for bohemian pieces if that is your vibe, otherwise, stick to the classy pearls and diamonds.
4. Know The Etiquette
Etiquettes play an integral role in defining your personality and how you carry yourself. Be graceful and polite with the way you talk and walk. Don’t forget “thank you”, “sorry”, “excuse me”, and “please” whenever needed. Learn the etiquette of holding your cutlery and other table manners, so you don’t act messy while dining. Maintain calm and composure, and keep away from using derogatory and cuss words.
5. Smell Good
Nah, smelling good is not just about perfumes. It’s about maintaining oral hygiene as well. Keep mouth freshener tablets and sprays handy in your bag wherever you go and use them every now and then to keep your breath smelling fresh. As for your perfume, you may use one that you have a nose for or give it a skip altogether – that’s up to you. There are celebs like Julia Roberts who let their own body odour do the talking. In case you choose to wear perfumes, make sure not to overdo it.
Last, but not least, wear your best smile to create the perfect impression. Practice and hone the above grooming tips to make a mark at beauty pageants. All the best!
