Beauty Pageant Tips of the Iceberg



When featured on The Smart Planner, I admitted that hemorrhoid cream was a must have in my 911 kits at weddings.  I have had people ask me what else I have in that monstrosity of a Emergency Kit that might be unconventional.  As I mentioned before, a lot of this came from competing in pageant circuits where quick fixes are a must.

The infamous hemorrhoid cream— This not only helps for those hard earned dark under eye circles from partying all night at the bachelorette party, but also for reducing the appearance of cellulite under unforgiving fabrics. 

Vaseline— This is an oldie but goodie.  File this under the "gross but works" category.  Slip a little on your teeth and it helps you to keep smiling during all of your pictures.  It also helps for not getting your lips stuck on your teeth during the shoot as well.

Apple Cider Vinegar– Take a tablespoon or two before eating (and you must eat…not a heavy meal, but eat something!) to reduce bloating.  Also good for sunburn (We get a lot of bridesmaids and brides who lay out at their resorts or at the beach and consequently burn).

Duct tape— Ugly as it is, Hollywood Tape has NOTHING on duct tape.  I’ve created the so many perfect angles and lines by sculpting a body with duct tape…and can secure speaker cords with the same roll.

Hollisters Medical Adhesive — Typically used to adhere prosthetic body parts, perfect for adhering dresses to the body (think of the infamous Jennifer Lopez Grammys dress, which is, in my opinion, the best dress EVER). 

Vapon No Tape— Used to adhere lace front wigs for stage productions and Glamzillas, perfect for attaching (flawlessly) bandaids or cushions to tough shoes that cause burns on the back of the heels or on toes.  Also good for affixing rhinestones to the body and face.

Bronzing powder— To create the illusion of slight or deep cleavage .

Dermablend body makeup— Perfect for covering up tattoos, deep blemishes and bruises.  (Note to you: it might take a combination of shades to get a perfect match).

White Eyeliner— For the corner of the eyes– makes them pop and look bigger in pictures.

Visine— It gets the red out! Not only out of eyes, but also out of pimples. Helps making the concealing process a lot easier.


Other tips:

  • If you are wearing pantyhose, get a good quality brand and soak them in salt water prior to wearing them. This will decrease the odds of them running.
  • When you stand, angle your hips so that you can elongate the body.  It will look beautiful in pictures.
  • Don’t wear shoes the same color as your dress (if it is short)– it will make you look stumpy.
  • Avoid big necklaces that will compete with your face.

  • Great advice! There were a few things in there I didn’t know and I’ll definitely have to make some adjustments to my emergency kit. The apple cider tip is interesting… I’m going to see for myself if it works! LOL

  • Great tips! I also use Vaseline to “lube” the rings lightly on the inside so they slip on easier… since you get swollen when you are nervous 😉

  • OK, this is one of the best posts ever. I have to admit doing near all of these things at some point in my life (I grew up around pageant friends!). Crazy and hilarious tips, but they WORK. Love this!
