Pageat Interview Queen


Sun Protection

On a daily basis, it is vital to wear sunscreen or sun protection on your skin in order to avoid permanent damage. People of all skin tones are susceptible to sun damage, and many people are not aware of the harm that the sun can cause. Being a beauty queen, a tan is the perfect way to glow on stage and stand out. However, your tan does not need to come from the sun; there are other alternative such as self-tanners. Protecting your skin is far more important than having a bronze look.

Because sun damage is so powerful and harmful, it is important to apply sunscreen every day. Even if you are attending a charity event outside for only an hour, the sun will still have contact with your skin. Applying sunscreen does not only involve your visible skin, but it also involves your face and neck. Because of the delicate skin on your face and neck, it is even more susceptible to sun damage.

Protecting your skin from the sun does not have to be a burden, you can make it fashionable. For instance, put on a floppy sun hat or wrap a scarf around your head as an accessory that also protects your skin. If you are going to be outside for an extended period of time, wear a long sleeve top or bring a light sweater to cover the skin on your arms.

A popular sun care product is the Neutrogena® Clear Face Liquid Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 55. This product has a high SPF, allowing for intense protection when outside. The ingredients are non comedogenic, meaning that the product will not clog pores or cause breakouts.  It is perfect for the reigning beauty queen, for it is oil free and will not make your skin shiny when standing on stage during a pageant. Maintaining healthy skin is the first step to standing out and owning the pageant stage.

Eyelash Extensions

Among celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry, and pageant queens alike, eyelash extensions have been the most recent beauty trend. Eyelash extensions are simply what they sound like; extensions for your eyelashes! Whether you want to enhance the natural look of your eyelashes or create a dramatic look similar to strip lashes, extensions make your beauty routine effortless.

Eyelash extensions are perfect for the working woman, busy student, or reigning beauty queen. Having extensions speeds up your beauty routine; you don’t have to fuss with mascara or glue on lashes. If you are a busy student, the lashes are perfect for rushing to an early morning class. The lashes look great alone, or can be enhanced with eye shadow and eyeliner for an even more dramatic look. Or how about if you are a reigning pageant queen and are constantly running from charity event to formal dinner? Having a glamorous look will allow a pageant queen to shine and nail the on stage interview. The lash extensions allow you to skip the glue, false eyelashes, and time!

There are a few things to consider before booking an appointment for your lashes. First of all, have a look in mind. Make sure you know if you want a more dramatic look or a natural eye. Also, know what material you would like your lashes to be. Eyelash extensions are manufactured in either mink or silk. The silk has a shiny look while the mink has a matte look; remember that the mink tends to be more expensive than silk! There are also different lengths that can be chosen from, it simply depends on your preference and the desired look you want.

Cost is another factor to consider. Your first set may cost anywhere from $75 – $120 depending on the studio and beauty consultant. After your first set, your lashes will last around 3 weeks before you need to go back to the studio and get a fill. The end result after your first set is absolutely beautiful, fit for any queen or busy scholar!

Liquid Lipstick

Celebrities and makeup artists have been raving over the new product on the market, the liquid lipstick. It is the convenience of a lip gloss with the formula of a lipstick; how could you resist? Most companies tend to create a matte formula, but there are other finishes available. Liquid lipsticks also have long lasting power, perfect for a long day at work or a night on the town. Being a pageant competitor, it is important that your makeup stays put during the entire competition. There are so many cosmetic companies that have released their own version of the liquid lipstick, so you are bound to find the perfect formula for you!

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick

The Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick is a must have for your makeup collection. The collection comes in 28 gorgeous shades, so it is super easy to find a shade that works for you. The formula is long lasting and dries rather quickly after applying. This product leaves a true matte finish, yet it isn’t drying at all. Sometimes matte formulas can be slightly uncomfortable, but this product is infused with ingredients like vitamin E and sunflower seed oil. The ingredients allow for a smooth application and comfortable wear throughout the day. My favorite shade within the collection is Lolita, for it is the perfect nude for fall or any season! It’s the combination of a nude and a blush color, extremely flattering on all skill tones. The color gives your lips a natural look while adding a pop of color. It is a beauty must that I have in my collection.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick

Another great liquid lipstick out on the market is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick. Not only does Anastasia formulate incredible eyebrow products, but their liquid lipsticks are also amazing products. The formula is a full coverage product that dries to a matte finish; it is also smear resistant, so it lasts for a long period of time. It is convenient to have a lip product that doesn’t need to be reapplied every moment of the day. There are 27 shades to choose from, ranging from pastel pink to rich mauve. The formula is very smooth and applies without clumping, like many liquid lipsticks tend to do. It is so nice to not have to worry about reapplying throughout the day because of the long-wearing formula.
