Answering a Reader Question #184

Anonymous Wrote:


I have stretchmarks in my lower back, hips and breasts. They are pretty noticeable. I saw that you mentioned you also had stretchmarks so I wanted to know what you do to cover them up. Especially for fittings and fashion shows?

I live in Miami where most of the work is bikini.


Hi, Anonymous, and thanks for the question! The fastest solutions include body makeup and spray tanning. Sometimes getting a spray tan can help but it won't make the stretch marks completely disappear, although it helps create a more uniform skin color. So those are your two main options. Dermablend is one of the most widely used brands of body makeup that you can find online and in certain stores. Get a sample and see what kind of coverage it offers for the areas you want to hide your stretchmarks.

Hope that helps and good luck!

Hi there :)
I'm a new reader to your blog so I'm catching up on your posts. I apologize if something similar has already been posted.
I have been interested in modeling for years, however I always prioritized my academics so I've graduated from high school and graduated from college, afterwards I got pregnant (whoops) and now that my daughter is over a year old (and I am going to be 25 in a couple months) I have really been looking into modeling. I want to pursue my dream before it really is too late. It seems like so many girls start before they're even out of high school nowadays. Do you think 25 years old is too late to start a modeling career? And do you have any advice for someone getting "late start"?
