Pageant season is upon us! Whether you are someone who is new to this, or a seasoned veteran, you know the importance of a good physical first impression when competing. If you hire someone to glam you up, or if you do it yourself (you go girl), it’s always good to keep a good makeup kit on hand for touch-ups or a change of look! Here’s our current favorite staple pieces we think would be perfect for any pageant girl.
