You see a lot of activity when you watch a beauty pageant on TV, but much more goes on behind the scenes. These contestants are hardcore beauty pageant competitors and they take these opportunities seriously. Here are some tips to help you stand out against your competition and take home the crown.
- Always smile.
This sounds like an obvious one because you always see contestants smiling. However, it not only means in front of the camera or on-stage but when you are off-stage, too. You never know when someone might see you as your rehearsing or even just talking with people involved in the production.
- Act like a winner.
While you are competing, act as if you have already won. Show confidence by looking people in the eye and holding your head high. If you portray yourself as a winner, others will believe it, too.
- It’s more about how you wear it.
Don’t worry if you can’t afford the most expensive or biggest brand of dress of swimsuit. It’s not about what you wear as much as how you wear it. You should feel like the most beautiful girl in the world, and it will come across to everyone else. Select a gown or swimsuit that makes you feel good about the way you look.
- Don’t give up.
Many contestants enter numerous competitions before they win. Even if you don’t do well for the first ones you enter, keep trying. Review what you did and ask yourself what you could do better and then work on it for next time.
- Be you.
Don’t aim for a certain persona in front of the judges. Just be yourself and your personality will shine through. Of course, you can highlight something about yourself that will capture everyone’s attention. Look for the unusual or odd and be the unique you that everyone can see. You don’t have to be the most beautiful or the most talented; you just have to be different from everyone else.
