Quick Tip #38

Category: Makeup
For: Female Models

You may not notice it but our complexions don't stay the same throughout the year. It is important to consider having two types of foundation for your makeup: one for the summer months and one for the winter months. If your complexion tends to stay about the same in tone, this probably won't be too much of a concern but if you notice that the foundation you typically wear in the summer looks a bit different on your skin when you apply it during the fall or winter months, that could be a sign that you'll need to be matched for a different foundation shade. Making sure your complexion looks picture perfect when attending castings, go-sees and modeling assignments where you have to arrive "camera ready"is worth investing in additional makeup products as needed, especially foundation.

Hi Dania! :)

I just applied to be a ford model the other day (through their website) and they replied to me the next day! (which was super exciting haha)
now they're asking me to send in more pictures wearing a bikini and more profile shots, as well as my runway walk
I really want to make a good impression so do you have any tips for me? :)
thank you so much!

When it comes to castings for actual modeling gigs/jobs (not open calls for modeling agencies) you should always arrive camera ready unless they say to arrive with a clean face.

This quick tip is only in reference to models attending castings in the hopes of booking a job with a client.
