What to Wear | Talent Agency

Hey Angels

Recently, I have received messages and comments via Facebook and Instagram regarding modeling and promotional modeling. While I'm still a novice, I thought I would share my tips on what to wear when meeting an agency for the first time. I am with more than one agency, this was just the first time I was meeting with the latest one. In this industry, it is normal for you to work with multiple agencies. I have worked various promotional modeling jobs as well as booked a few paid photo shoots; I also have video experience in case you are wondering. Check out my tips in the video below!

Natural Makeup for Photography

Hey Angels,

Yesterday I completed my second paid photo shoot and realized that I have not updated you all on my makeup routine in a fairly long time! The photographer requested that my face look very natural as if I was on vacation and just woke up an hour ago. It can be difficult to cover up blemishes yet still appear to not be wearing any makeup.

That is why I choose to use the Avon Smooth Minerals loose mineral foundation in Medium Beige as my base and the L'Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation in Sun Tan as concealer for extreme redness only. I applied the liquid foundation with my fingers around my nose and on a few blemishes. Using a large Soho Kabuki brush, I swirled the mineral foundation allover my face, blending it with the small spots of liquid foundation.

Then I used Wayne Goss's curling technique of pumping the eyelash curler really fast and applied L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Excess black mascara to lengthen and define my lashes. No eyeliner, or shadow just straight to lightly filling in my brows with Avon Perfect Eyebrow Pencil in Blonde.

Lastly, I applied pink lip gloss with NO shimmer. Shimmer is a dead giveaway that you're in makeup so avoid it when doing natural shoots. I like the Balm Plump Your Pucker in Pink My Lemonade because it gives a slight pink tint to my darker two toned lips.

What are your favorite products when going for a natural look?

Famous Footwear Clearance Deals

Hey Angels,

I went to Famous Footwear yesterday and was in major luck because they had their buy one get one half off for the clearance section! I found a comfortable pair of shoes suitable for my hospital internship and some cute sandals to replace the worn and broken ones from last year.

I purchased this pair of What's What by Aerosoles Quick Temper wedge loafers for $20. They are very comfortable and have just the right amount of cushy padding. I liked the little wedge because my feet hurt when I wear completely flat shoes for a long time. Since it isn't a separated heel I can still power walk without feeling as if I will lose balance. If you are interested in purchasing them you can find them hereon the Famous Footwear site, but they are cheaper if you go to the store.

I also purchased this pair of Fergalicious Scout sandals for $7.50. The clearance price was $15 but the second pair was half off. My old pair of black sandals had a 1/4-1/2 inch heel but it was separate from the rest of the sandal. One day it got stuck on an extension cord covering and broke on me. I was happy to find this pair that has the heel built in as a tiny wedge because I won't have to worry about it snapping. I can't have enough sandals because they are the go to shoe year round here in the Sunshine State!

Wake Up Walk

When visiting my family's house, I often walk outside and look at all the plants when I wake up. It puts me in a good mood and is great to do while drinking a cup of coffee or tea. Here are some photos from my walk around the lot today.
