Model Makeup Tips for A Portfolio Photo Shoot | Aspiring models

natural makeupA model needs photographs for her book that shows her to a client. As a model you do not want photos in your book that involves a ton of makeup or involves wild, crazy ideas. For your portfolio photos you want to wear minimal makeup.  Don’t distract from your face.

In New York a model usually wears little no makeup on a daily basis.  Models try to keep their faces clean and simple, it’s very pretty. They don’t wear a ton of makeup unless they are working.  For your portfolio photos you want a clean, simple and pretty face.

When models meet with clients they usually wear almost no makeup. When you are auditioning with a client you want to be a clean canvas because the client has their own ideas for what they want you to look like for their show or campaign. In some small markets the model is asked to do her own hair and makeup.

Sometimes as a model your skills for doing your own makeup are limited. You don’t have to be a makeup guru to be a model. Because as a model you are not required to wear makeup on a daily basis, the opposite is true. When you are meeting with agents or clients they ask you to wear as little makeup as possible so that they are able to see your skin and your features, sometimes makeup can hide that and give the client the wrong idea.

If you are an aspiring model and you are creating a portfolio keep in mind that the client wants to see you. You do not want anything to distract from your face. You want the makeup in your pictures to be very minimal.
