When you want to break into the modeling world, it is important to prepare yourself well. We have useful modeling tips for you. If you take these into account, you're more likely to be invited for castings and photo shoots.
Tips to stay in shape
The first tip is that you should eat healthy and varied food. You don't have to starve yourself, but it is also important that you don't eat too many unhealthy things. For everyone, it is important to live healthily, but if you want to become a model, this is even more important. Stay in shape by doing daily exercises for your body as well. You shouldn't be overweight or underweight. Modeling agencies pay attention to how you look and if you are in shape.
Visiting a modeling agency
If you are going to visit a modeling agency, there are a number of things that are very important to do. The first thing to keep in mind is not to be late. They don't appreciate being late, because time is money in the fashion world. So be a little too early rather than too late. Your attitude is something that is also very important for a modeling agency. You make a good first impression by showing your personality, looking well-groomed and by adopting a good attitude. Good grooming includes well-groomed hair, clean hands, clean nails and little or no make-up. This way, the modeling agency can see what your natural look is like! Also think about photos and if you have them or a portfolio.
Tips for your photoshoot
If you have a photoshoot, it is important that you are well prepared, by shaving all the body parts that can be seen in the photo. You can think of armpits, legs and bikini line. You shouldn't wax on the previous day, because irritation can occur. Make sure you don't wear a too tight bra, socks, underwear, etc. before your shoot because this can leave lines. Ask in advance if you need to bring your own make-up or if there is a make-up artist.
With a good portfolio, clients can see exactly what kind of work you have done before and how good you are in front of camera. If you're already at a modeling agency, let them take care of your portfolio. Make sure you make a portfolio with a good mix of photos. Have photos up close and photos where you're totally on. It is good to have variation in your photos; think of black and white photos and color photos, but also work with different photographers. Renew your portfolio at least once a year.
Beauty tips and beauty tricks
If you want to become a model, it is important that you take good care of your body. For example, you can use body scrub and shaving foam; this ensures that your skin is nice and soft, and irritation is less likely to occur. Always take your make-up off before going to sleep; this is very important. Otherwise, your skin won't get any air, causing pimples and blemishes, and you also have the chance that your eyelashes break off, so there is no excuse not to take it off. It is also very important to take good care of your hair. You do this by going to the hairdresser at least once every three months and by using fine hair products. Think for example of baby shampoo, which is nice and soft so your hair and the color of your hair will stay beautiful longer.
