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
