Winning a Beauty Pageant Tips from Andrea Piecuch

Whether you are participating in a national or local beauty pageant, you need to know what it takes to win the pageant. Beauty pageants are about more than just learning to walk in heels and look gorgeous. A beauty pageant requires confidence in yourself and the ability to speak honestly on stage. When you enter a beauty pageant, you must do so with the determination to win. However, you must also learn to lose gracefully to another contestant. When you understand the ups and downs of contests, you become a better participant.

Andrea Piecuch would know a thing or two about them, considering she’s participated in quite a few. She is Miss Universe US Virgin Islands 2019 and has achieved quite a bit of fame because of her amazing looks. She is also on the verge of launching her jewelry line, and each piece has been designed by her.

However, it’s her confidence and humility that most people really like. Here are a few tips from Piecuch on how to win a Beauty competition.


A key element to winning a beauty pageant is having confidence in yourself. You need to feel confident in all aspects of your life. This confidence is displayed during the various stages of a contest. For example, when you feel comfortable in your evening dress or bathing suit, you walk better and smile more. If you are comfortable with your talent, you will put on a better show. Work on self-confidence every day through positive thinking and accepting your imperfections with positive affirmations.


A big part of a beauty pageant is dealing with the costumes. You need appropriate outfits for the entire contest. Choose dresses and swimsuits that show your natural beauty. Don’t choose clothes that are too revealing or that don’t flatter your figure. What you wear during the contest is closely observed by the judges. Wearing a very revealing or very maternal garment will not flatter you. You must find the right balance between the two. Shoes are also part of the outfit for the beauty pageant. You should have shoes that allow you to walk without looking uncomfortable. Choose your shoes and wear them to walk as far in advance as possible.

The most important part of preparation is mental preparation, knowing you’ve done everything within your power to arrive at the pageant prepared and ready will allow you to stay calm and trust in yourself. After that, wardrobe plays an important role. Pick the outfits that relay that you are ready and capable to do the job you are competing for but that also stay true to you and your sense of style. Pick outfits that make you feel beautiful and that you can model in comfortably. Another big tip is to practice walking in your evening gown and competition shoes as early as possible!


A beauty pageant is not just about physical beauty. Judges also evaluate intelligence. The jury looks for focused women with inner and outer beauty. Show the judges your intelligence by working on your speech. Practice in front of the mirror and in front of family and friends. Ask people to ask you questions. Answer questions thoughtfully and intelligently. Talk about your personal experiences and do it genuinely. When you are fake, others can always notice. Using your personal experiences also gives the judges a general idea about you, which makes you more endearing. For example, refer to your volunteer experience or life choices that you have had to make when answering the questions.


Beauty pageants give you the opportunity to show your talent. Whether you sing, dance, or perform magic tricks, you must have your act prepared to perfection before attempting it on stage. Work on your talent well in advance of the contest. Use trainers and practice whenever possible. When you feel comfortable with your act, you reduce the chances of being wrong during this stage of the contest.
