At the grand finale held recently at Pragjyoti ITA Machkhowa auditorium, Danube Kangjam from Imphal, Manipur was crowned as the winner of Livon Serum Face of Northeast 2018. The 1st Runner-up title was awarded to Jigyasha Kashyap from Guwahati while the 2nd Runner-up title was presented to Anushka Lekharu from Guwahati.
Hailing from Imphal, Danube enjoys doing makeup, journaling, and modelling. Just because she is passionate about modelling and staying fit, that doesn’t mean that she doesn’t enjoy her food. Her favourite food is sougri, a traditional Manipuri soup dish. ‘I especially love it when it is made by my mom.’ She believes that ‘in order to succeed, our desire for success should be greater than our fear of failure.’
The prestigious panel of judges, who had a hard time choosing between the lovely contestants, included well-known names such as Roshni Hassan, Mrs United Nations 2017, renowned classical vocalist & sound designer Abhishruti Bezbaruah, National award winning filmmaker Samujjal Kashyap, fashion designer Shyamant Hazarika and Saumar Sharma, CEO Indian Weavers Alliance Inc.
Apart from the interesting pageant rounds, there were also some great performances by renowned pianist Promiti Phukan, folk artist Hirak Jyoti Sarma and the band Nizora.
Managed by Tattva Creations Pvt Ltd, the main focus of Livon Serum Face of Northeast was to groom talented young women from across the Northeast and encourage them to become role models of beauty, health and leadership.
