5. Miss Henderson, Baylee Bernstein
This University of Nevada student looks amazing. The royal blue top is super flattering against her skin. The neckline shows off her toned arms from years of dance. The chunky blue earrings add just enough interest to balance out the simple top.
She made a smart choice to have the earrings peak out from her hair. It adds just enough interest to bring the attention to her face without being overpowering.

Her smile is the star of this photo. It warm and welcoming. Her nude lipstick complements the natural look of the photo while still drawing attention to her smile.
The purple top was a smart choice. Purple is a royal color perfect for a queen. Since she chose a very “loud” shade and went with a great style so the top isn’t overwhelming her in the photo. (Secret to Taking a Winning Pageant Headshot)
