6 make-up secrets that will wow the runway
Getting the right look before you go for your casting is important. Applying your make-up to show your best features could make all the difference to your future career. Whether you have been modeling for years or are heading for your first casting at Bubblegum casting, these tips will put you one step ahead of the others.
1. Less is more
It can be tempting to use every piece of make-up in your vanity case; but it is better to use a few well selected items to create your look. Using too much make-up can lead to a caked effect making it hard for you to show any expression with your make-up cracking and flaking. If you are new to applying make-up for shows or shoots you should remember that the camera will pick up even the smallest imperfection or crack. The lights in a studio can also make it rather warm, potentially casing your make-up to melt and run. You could end up looking less like a model and more like a crying clown
2. Creating luscious lashes
Creating long lashes doesn’t have to mean piling on the mascara. Create longer, fuller looking lashes by using eyelash curlers before applying mascara. When applying your mascara make sure your brush is clean and clump free before you start. When applying mascara move the brush side to side as you work up the lashes; this gives the appearance of fuller lashes. Once the mascara is dry use a clean dry mascara brush to brush through and remove any excess.
3. Lovely lips
If you have thin lips you can create a fuller look using a lip pencil. Using a pencil that is a similar color to your natural lip color begin by creating an outline just outside of edge of your natural lip line. Fill in the rest of your lips with the same color and then top with a thin coat of lip gloss. Use a gloss that has a shimmer to it to reflect the light and make the lips look fuller.
4. Open your eyes
Traditionally eye liner is applied along the length of the lower lid. However, you can create a wider more awake look by just putting a small touch of liner in the outside corner of the eyes.
5. Clever concealer
Concealer is generally used to hide spots and other skin blemishes. But, two different tones of concealer can be cleverly used to create a perfect fresh faced look. Use a lighter concealer around the eye area and then a slightly darker one on problem areas. To make the look as natural as possible blend and apply the concealer with your fingers. Using this trick removes the need for foundation.
6. Getting the balance right
It’s important to make sure you get the balance of color right, particularly if you are going to be in front of the camera. The best way to achieve this is to firstly create bright eyes by applying your color with a damp brush. Then either leave your lips bare or use a neutral lip color.
