Quick Tip: 63

Category: Makeup
For: Male & Female Models

I'm including the male models in this post, too, since as we all know, male models wear makeup, too! :-)

If you've ever dealt with glitter in makeup (lip color/gloss, bronzer, eye shadow, etc.), you'll know that it can be a pain to get rid of. The best makeup removers on the market don't always get every little spec of sparkle.

I'm sure both you models and non-models alike out there have had at least one encounter with mystery glitter speckles suddenly catching your attention in the mirror or pointed out to you by someone.

To get rid of glitter in a more effective way then scrubbing your face raw, follow this nifty trick I learned from a great makeup artist out of San Francisco (I don't remember his name...gah!):

Take a small strip of Scotch tape (the clear kind or the kind that's a bit hazy/not as see-through), lay it on top of the area where the glitter is on your skin, gently press down and remove the strip. It's not rocket science to see why this works. The Scotch tape is enough of an adhesive that it will catch those pesky glitter flakes but not mess up your skin in the process.

You can do this several times until you've gotten it all out. You may need a new strip of tape if the glitter isn't being picked up after a while (this happens when the skin's natural oils get onto the tape, making the adhesive less sticky).

Btw: this trick is best used for those getaway glitter specks that you can't get rid of after you've already cleansed/washed your face/body. Do not go for the Scotch tape to remove glitter before you've cleansed!

Be sure to use Scotch tape, not duct tape, packaging tape or any other kind of tape. Keep it simple, folks!

Hi I'm K.A. from mongolia. First of all, thank you so much for this blog. It's really helpful. :)
Okay, so.. I'm moving to Cyprus next year. And I really want to be a model, especially a runway model. And I'm just seeking about it through the Internet. I'm 15 now so when I move to Cyprus I'll turned to be 16. My measurements are 75cm, 57cm, 77cm (29; 22; 30 inch) and my height is around 5,5 (I guess) and weight is 45kg (I guess). Are my measurements compatible or am I too skinny to start modelling? (by the way I never get fat by eating) If I'm too skinny, should I do fitness to gain more weight and to fill my body? And will I be able to grow tall anymore and do a runway? And is there any top modelling agency in Cyprus or isn't there? And how do I start modelling industry?
I'm sorry for too many questions, and I'm really looking forward to hear reply from you. Thanks a lot :)
