Madeleine Kazda, 25, Sydney NSW
Dancer/Student/Receptionist

I’ve been a dancer and aerialist for Tokyo Disneyland and Hong Kong Disneyland playing Ariel the little mermaid. I’ve also danced on Princess Cruises and am currently a showgirl on Sydney Showboats! I also love leading a fit and healthy lifestyle, hitting the beach, and doing hot yoga.

1. What is your favourite make up trend at the moment?
The minimal make up trend! I love that the industry is showcasing natural beauty on the runways and sometimes less is definitely more. As a dancer I get tired of suffocating my skin with heavy stage make up, so during the day if I need to put something on its powder, bronzer, mascara, done.

2. What is your foolproof, never fail make up look?
Brown and gold eyeshadows, light enough for the day and can be built up for the evening- especially with winged liner by a marker style pen. Shadow in the bottom corners of the eye open up my eyes and can distract from dark circles!

3. What product couldn’t you live without?
Mascara. I’m lucky to have longer lashes and mascara really highlights them. I like putting it on both the top and bottom lashes.

4. What is your top beauty secret?
Looking after your skin. Have a skincare regime and use quality products. That’s why I love Face of Australia as they offer first-class ingredients, superior quality, and innovative products. They specifically research and design for the Australian consumer, understanding our lifestyle and needs.

5. What’s next on your beauty wish list?
Being a little on the low maintenance side I need to educate myself and invest in a foundation, and I’ve got my eye on Face of Australia’s Mineral Therapy Liquid Foundation with added jojoba oil for care. I tend to just brush on powder, but when I’m lucky enough to get my make up done I love the dewy fresh glow foundation gives your skin, and Mineral Therapy Foundation will give that glow without a cake-like coverage.

6. What is your biggest make up faux pas?
Not using blush enough!! I’m a big bronzer fan but when winter hits and my skin lightens I should really use blush to capture that flushed, fresh, snow bunny look, Face of Australia’s Primrose blush has the perfect colour.

7. What is the beauty look that you wouldn’t be caught dead in?
Not blending. I cringe when I see girls with a foundation line along their jaw, or eyeshadow that is packed on and too sharp. My blending brush is my favourite beauty tool.

8. Who is your favourite past Miss Universe Australia winner?
It has to be last year’s Tegan Martin. I’m all about natural beauty and a great smile. Her determination to re-enter the competition is something to be admired at such a young age, and she’s learnt and grown into a stunning woman.

9. Who is your favourite Aussie designer?
I absolutely love Australian designers, and am passionate about promoting local talent. I own pieces from Camilla & Marc, Bec & Bridge, Bariano, Alice McCall, Cue, Manning Cartell, Josh Goot, Dion Lee, Ellery, Lover the Label, Nicholas, just to name a few!

10. What is the main thing that you want to get out of this competition?
It has already allowed me to focus on my goals and my wish for more involvement with charity. I am already a better and more motivated person thanks to this competition. I do hope that it can assist me with establishing myself in Australia, after my contracts overseas I feel it is time for me to settle in my beloved home country and this competition is the ideal platform to secure this.

11. Tell us something that not many people know about you!
I have always wanted to be more involved with charity and this pageant has definitely given me the boost and confidence I needed. Having had a personal experience with anxiety I understand the complexities and issues surrounding mental illnesses. I understand and empathise with those out there suffering in silence. I want to assure them that mental illness is not a weakness, but a strength and testament to character, and the internal struggle does not discriminate and it can affect anyone. Education and acceptance by others is key, and it would be an honour to be a face of awareness, comfort, and reassurance that people can overcome mental illness and reach their dreams. I am currently working with beyondblue and am in discussions to possibly MC one of their events.
