Miss Georgia USA Tiana Griggs


Butter Me Up

“L’Occitane’s certified organic shea butter helps protect, soften and regenerate dry, dehydrated or sensitive skin. It’s my holy grail each season.”

$42, L’Occitane, @loccitane

In Full Bloom

“Bond No. 9’s New York Central South Park eau de parfum is my favorite! It’s a sophisticated, fresh floral fragrance.”

$200 for 1.7 oz., Saks Fifth Avenue, @bond_no9

Wash, Rinse, Repeat

“I use CeraVe foaming facial cleanser daily to wash away dirt, oil and makeup. This gentle formula contains ceramides and hyaluronic acid–the natural ingredients of a healthy skin barrier.”

$14, Walgreens, @ceraveskin

Walk This Way

“I use Sally Hansen’s Airbrush Legs in Deep Glow to create a flawless finish on my legs.”

$12, Target, @sallyhansen

Healing Powers

“I always keep a bottle of T.N. Dickinson’s witch hazel in my medicine cabinet. It’s a must-have multipurpose astringent that can be dabbed on daily to heal damaged skin.”

Lady in Red

“Sephora Collection’s cream lip stain in Always Red is my signature lip color. Every girl should have a sexy red lip in her makeup arsenal.”

$13, Sephora, @sephora


“Oily skin has met its match with Urban Decay’s De-Slick Oil-Control makeup setting spray. As a titleholder, I’m always on the go, and maintaining a photo-ready beautiful face is mandatory!”

It’s hard to believe 26-year-old bombshell Tiana Griggs started her pageant career just two short years ago. The stunning Georgia Southern University grad first hit the Miss Georgia USA stage in November 2012 (where she scored second runner-up), then took home the title the following year. But Griggs is no stranger to the taste of sweet success. The Monticello, Ga., native was discovered back in 2010 at Dark and Lovely’s Ultimate Fashionista Model Search in A-Town (where she won first place), then became a face of Procter and Gamble’s My Black Is Beautiful campaign, a women’s movement celebrating the diverse beauty of African-American women. Now, she’s gearing up for her shot at the Miss USA title in Baton Rouge, La., on June 8. “Winning Miss USA would be an absolute dream!” Griggs gushes. “I took a leap of faith to pursue my dreams, and it has been the most empowering time of my life. Having the opportunity to inspire other [women] to do the same is simply a blessing.” You go, girl! Here, Griggs breaks down her stage-ready beauty routine. @realmissgausa
