Day 2 of Miss Teenage Canada was just as excited as Day 1! Except today gave all the contestants just a tad bit of pressure- we were getting judged! Today we all did our photo shoots, video shoots and interviews, all of which count towards our scores, a part of what will decide if we’re in the top 20 or not!
Let me tell you, we did a lot of waiting! With 60 girls doing individual shoots and interviews, we had to patiently wait our turn. I can’t imagine being a judge and having to sit through 60 interviews; props to them!
Nonetheless, it was all extremely exciting. We got our hair and makeup done by our sponsor Motives Cosmetics, and it was flawless! I definitely felt like a beauty queen! My hairdresser gave me loose but voluminous curls that fell gently down. I have naturally curly hair, but trying out a different type of curl was fun 🙂 Plus, I don’t have that volume all the time haha! I then went on to my makeup and left it all to my makeup artist Lilo; I trusted her to make me look camera-ready! I ended up with a very dark and dramatic look- heavier than my everyday makeup (of course), but perfect for the shoots! I felt beautiful! Thank you so much to Motives for getting all the girls ready- you rock!
I changed into a mint green lace cocktail dress for the photo shoot and video shoot, and after a little more waiting, I walked into the photo shoot room, met my wonderful photographer and got to work! It was so much fun and he directed me very well. I did many different poses, and felt very comfortable in front of the camera 🙂
Soon enough, I was off to do my video shoot! The videographer was very funny, making a lot of jokes the whole time, so he made me feel really comfortable. We answered three questions into the camera, posed a little bit showing our personality and attitude, and before I knew it I was done!
The next part was the interview. Many people get nervous when in an interview, speaking directly to someone, but I felt calm all day 🙂 I was very confident in myself for the shoots, and remained confident for the interview as well. I showed the judges my bubbly personality and did everything I usually do at a job interview 🙂
Overall, today was a wonderful experience and I’m very proud of myself; I feel that I did great in all aspects, simply because I was confident in myself! Tomorrow is a new day and I can’t wait to share it with you!
Until next time,
