Making it in the big world as a model can be a difficult task. Whether you want to model for clothing photoshoots or walk down a runway in lingerie, there are some tips that you could take on to increase your chances of being employed.

Find your hairstyle

Visit a stylist and discuss options for your hair. You could try out different styles and see which suits you the most. Trying styled wigs is a great way of testing out styles without actually having your hair cut.

Once you have found the style you want, then make sure you keep your hair in top condition. Regular visits to your stylist will ensure that your hair is always looking it’s best. Try not to go for anything too dramatic, because models need to be versatile and able to adapt to what is needed for the job.

Keep yourself healthy

Models in general have to keep an eye on their weight and shape. There are often specific sized people that companies are looking for. Make sure you eat well and exercise regularly as this will keep you in tip-top shape.

Eating a good diet and staying hydrated will also keep your skin in the best condition possible. Having glowing skin will be a major advantage when agencies are looking to employ.

Have a portfolio

Having professional photos that you can display on your website and social media is essential. Hire a trusted photographer like red bank photographers to take your photos. It’s always best to pay for professionals to take your photos rather than try and take them yourself.

Even though nowadays you can take crystal clear photos on your phone, let the experts use their equipment and give you the best chance to get yourself noticed.

Know your style

Versatility is important, but you need to stick to your own style. Make sure your clothes are properly fitted. This includes your underwear. Having a correctly fitted bra can make all the difference with how you look.

Being consistent with your style will also give potential agencies an idea of what you look the best in, and whether you will fit in with their needs. If you’re feeling like you aren’t sure of what your style is, why not check out these tips on how you can freshen up your style.

Smile!

Even though models aren’t always smiling in photoshoots, having a killer smile will give you a massive advantage. Take regular trips to the dentist and have your teeth cleaned, use whitening toothpaste and make sure you regularly brush your teeth. If you have misaligned teeth and can’t afford expensive work on your teeth, consider getting yourself some veneers.

If you follow these tips, you’ll be sure to find yourself some work. Another thing to keep up to date is your website and social media. Post regularly and make it clear on how people can get in contact with you. Browse the internet for agencies looking to employ models too, don’t just wait for them to come to you. The more you get yourself known, the more likely you are to find work.

Throwing a halloween party for kids is one thing. Throwing a spooky halloween party for adults is another thing entirely! If you want to make this party fun for adults, you really need to go all out and make sure your bases are covered. Here’s what you need to do:

Decide Where To Throw Your Party

Where to throw your party is very important. Would you rather have it in a venue outside of your home? This could mean you can invite more people, and you won’t need to worry about your belongings getting broken or damaged in any way. However, having it at home is usually easier and a little more intimate. It all depends on the kind of party you’d like to have.

Send Out Invites ASAP

Make sure you send out your invites ASAP. Some people have work and other commitments, which could stop them from attending if you don’t tell them about it early enough. Make sure you include what they should wear, where it is, and other important info. Choose a design that suits the mood of your party. Somewhere like Invitation Box could inspire you when it comes to design.

Come Up With Your Own Halloween Cocktail And Punch Bowl

As this is an adult halloween party, make sure you have your own halloween cocktail. You could choose something reminiscent of Snow White’s poisoned apple, or make your own. You could even have an acid green punch bowl. Make sure there’s plenty to go around and they go with the theme of the night.

Make Crowd Pleasing Snacks

You don’t need to feed your guests a sit down meal. You could simply create a few crowd pleasing snacks to keep everybody going. Have a mix of sweet and salty foods so that everybody can find something they like. You don’t necessarily need to make the food look gross either! There are lots of ideas online for you to use.

Watch The Scariest Film You Can Find

Why not watch the scariest film you can find? You’ll all feel much braver if you’re together. Even if you don’t watch it properly, it could make a good background for your party. If you don’t want to do that, at least make sure you have a halloween playlist.

Consider A Murder Mystery

Murder mysteries could be a good way to give your halloween party more of a theme. You basically play it like one big game. You show up in character, and don’t get out of character all night. Different murder mysteries have different rules and things, so make sure you find the right one for you.

Set The Tone With Your Lighting And Decor

Use your lighting and decor to make an impact on your guests. Using traditional candles in old wine bottles looks great. You don’t need to paint everywhere orange. You can have a demure black and white theme, and include some metallic elements for a glamorous feel. You don’t necessarily need to spend much on decor if everything else is in place.

Just like any other field, the cosmetic industry is always developing new solutions. Not all of them work out, but many become favorites of cosmetic practitioners. Innovations in cosmetic procedures often focus on avoiding the need for surgery. Some try to reduce recovery time for patients, while others provide temporary solutions. New treatments can help people achieve what they want in different ways. There’s no need to stick to just one treatment which you might not feel is suitable for you. If you’re looking for alternative cosmetics, try some of these latest treatments.

Temporary Breast Augmentation

The ability to have a temporary breast augmentation and lift has existed for a while. But it experienced a surge in popularity a couple of years ago. This interesting procedure uses an unusual method to give someone a boob job for about 24 hours. It is performed by injecting saline (the same stuff you would find in an IV bag) into the breast tissue. This gives the woman larger breasts for just a short period. So what are the advantages of this? Although it only lasts a short while, it could help someone decide if they want to have cosmetic surgery or not.

Threadlifts

Cosmetic treatments today place a huge focus on being non-invasive. If someone can get away with not having surgery, they would rather do something else. One non-surgical option that’s available is the threadlift for facelift or neck lift replacement. Instead of having one of these procedures surgically, a threadlift uses a biodegradable thread that is sewn into the skin to lift it. The threads take several months to be absorbed into the skin tissue. They help to promote collagen production as they do so. They aim to produce long-term results without anyone having to go under the knife. However, the procedure does involve an anesthetic.

A Range of Fillers

Dermal fillers have been popular for a while as a non-invasive anti-aging option. However, they are becoming more sophisticated to offer a range of options to customers. They no longer serve just one purpose. Many of them are highly targeted and designed to address specific problems. For example, some are meant to smooth out fine lines while others are intended to provide a plumping effect. Dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons can now use a range of products for different areas of the face.

Topical Botox

A topical version of Botox hasn’t yet been introduced to the market, but it’s highly anticipated. Botox is already a popular choice for non-invasive anti-aging. If it can be applied without the use of even a needle, there could be many more people who want to try it. However, it is still in development, and it could be a while before it gains approval for use. Once it does, it’s not yet clear what benefits it could provide. Although it could improve skin quality, it might not have the ability to smooth out deep lines.

The cosmetic industry is always evolving and offering new treatments. Keep your eye on what’s available to find what’s right for you.

Take care of your skin every morning

Taking care of your skin starts as soon as you wake up first thing in the morning. It’s so easy to just give it a quick wash and then move on to your beauty regime. But you need to cleanse it properly, so you can unclog your pores to stop breakouts and scarring. You should buy some special cleansing soap which will remove impurities while keeping your natural moisture balance. You then need to use toner which will remove oil and dirt deep in your pores. You can then finish off with a great moisturiser, which will hydrate your skin and create a clean base for makeup.

Spots. Everyone gets them. Everyone hates them. So finding a way to deal with them fast is key. Some people even have to deal with the dreaded nightmare well into their 30’s. You need to ensure you sort it now before you end up with permanent scarring on your face. A lot of people recommend that you get an acid cleanser, a spot treatment, and a daily moisturizer to get rid of breakouts. You need to check with a dermatologist what would be best for your skin. Don’t use products which will irritate it further and cause your skin to get worse.

Prevent wrinkles

You might be surprised to know that a lot of girls notice their first wrinkle when they are in their mid to late 20’s! Therefore, you should find a good anti-ageing cream that you can use daily to prevent wrinkles. A lot of ladies are also heading for treatments in their 20’s to banish wrinkles. One of the most popular treatments women to go for is a botox injection. Celebrities rave about the treatment with fans including model Katie Price and reality star Kim Kardashian. The treatment smoothes and firms fine lines, enabling you to have youthful looking skin. It looks natural, so people won’t know you have been for the treatment!

Make sure you wash off makeup at night

We know it’s easy to forget, but you must wash off your makeup at night. If you leave it on when you go to bed, it will irritate your skin. It will clog your pores and cause breakouts to appear the next day. Therefore, get a good makeup remover and some cotton wool pads, so you can clean your face before you head to bed.

 photo LaserHairRemovalMaleAndFemale_zpshxsfyrl3.png

If you are tired of getting rid of unwanted hair with traditional methods, such as shaving, it might be a good idea to think about getting rid of that hair another way. The first option that comes to mind is probably laser hair removal, but you also have the option of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments, which are different. Here’s a comparison of the two.

Both Offer Home Use Kits
One thing both techniques have in common is that home use kits are available. In other words, you can go to a drugstore or department store and find hand-held IPL or laser devices to use on yourself. That may sound much more convenient than going in for treatments at your local spa or clinic, right?

The only problem is that IPL and laser hair removal devices designed to be used at home don’t produce the same results as those used in clinics. They simply aren’t as strong, especially the laser devices. So, although they may remove some hairs, they aren’t going to be as thorough or precise.

How the Two Treatment Types Differ
Lasers are concentrated beams of monochromatic (one color) light. They also create a lot of heat in most cases. IPL hair removal machines are much less concentrated. Instead, they produce “bands” of light on certain frequencies, which are meant to disrupt hair growth. However, those pulses of lights don’t create much heat at all.

Why You Might Choose One or the Other
Technically speaking, laser machines usually work better than IPL machines. They are stronger and can often keep unwanted hair from growing back as quickly as it might after IPL treatment. However, the differences in techniques means that laser machines might not be a good way to treat specific patients.

Basically, the heat created by lasers can be disruptive for those with oil glands that are over-active. So, as an example, if you are prone to acne outbreaks you might want to try IPL instead, since acne and oily skin tend to go hand-in-hand.

Lasers can also be a problem for dark-skinned people sometimes, since they tend to treat darker areas on the skin’s surface, which are generally dark hairs. Anyone with dark skin might find that certain laser devices can’t find the hair against the dark skin. Although, there are some lasers that can treat darker skin types.

Shaving or Waxing May Not be Eliminated
If you have IPL or laser treatments, you will have to shave and wax much less often than you otherwise would. But you still may have to do it periodically. How often will depend on a lot of things, including the treatments you have, how often you have them, and how much hair you are trying to treat.

Nevertheless, if you have the proper clinical treatment for your unwanted hair, the roots should be damaged. That means weeks or months before the hair will regrow, as opposed to the few days it might take after you shave surface hair away. So, no matter which type of clinical hair removal treatment you choose, it will save you time.
