Competition categories may include talent, interview, sportswear, casual wear, swim wear, western wear, theme wear, outfit of choice, decade wear, and evening wear. Depending on the type of pageant system (Glitz/Natural) contestants may be found wearing makeup as well as elaborate hairstyles and custom designed and fitted outfits to present their routines on stage (www.wikipedia.com). What happens when you enter a beauty pageant? Let's talk !
