Confused About Kind Of Makeup To Wear While Auditioning For a Pageant? Here is your Mantra!

Nail Your Auditions With Minimal Yet Effective Makeup

Hey guys! So it’s a pageant tutorial blog post after a long long time. I am often asked by pageant aspirants about how to do their makeup during auditions and closed door interviews. So this blog post is all about how to nail your simple and subtle look effortlessly.

Being in pageant these days is not about donning a bold, glamorous and sensational look all the time, but more about how you present yourself as a personality of substance, which comes more to spotlight when you proudly flaunt yourself with minimal efforts. So let’s delve in to how to dazzle as a natural beauty during auditions and low key pre pageant activities.

Bid Goodbye to Foundation

Nothing looks more over the top than the cakey layer of foundation, making your skin look aged and smudgy. Opt for a BB cream or CC cream instead, which blends gently to your skin tone without leaving any thick traces. Do not forget to keep a beauty blender in your vanity, to make the process hassle free and quick.

How About Concealer?

Of course concealer comes handy when you are to hide those red patches or dark circles underneath your eyes, but an excessive layering of it can make you look artificial. Dab the concealer gently near your eyes, stretching it out to your cheekbone.

Befriend a Subtle Mascara

After seeing the intense trend of fanned and pumped eyelashes, pageant girls often diminish their natural beauty by opting something which makes them look quite artificial. Instead, go for transparent mascara, which helps in the long lasting lash tint. Neither they are thickly noticeable, nor do they make the eyes look cakey. Rather, it enhances the beauty of your eyes.

Hola Hola Neutral Eye Shadows

Cream or beige coloured eye shadow highlights your eyebrow bone without gleaming as too bold to be noticed. Chose a colour which matches your skin tone but is one tone brighter in order to pop your eyes brightly when exposed to light.

Neutral Lip Colours Key To Shine!

I have stressed the importance of neutral lip colour time and again. While doing makeup, how could you not help pay heed to lips! Rather than going for a rich matte or glossy lip colour,  go for a tinted balm, which gives a sheer pleasant colour apart from keeping your lips hydrated.

  1. I am planning to participate in the 2018 edition of Sunsilk Mega Miss Northeast . The auditions are still five months away and I am being very restless. Have my university board exams in two months time.


    • Hey Gayatri! 🙂 Just live your moment. Focus on your studies first and whenever you get the spare time, refresh yourself with rampwalk practice on your terrace or lawn. Keep yourself hydrated and keep meditating every morning and evening for atleast 15 minutes, I am sure you will make it. Good luck! 🙂 Much love. Write me anytime if you need help at my email address given in the contact of this blog.
