Welcome my lovelies to the Color My Face Behind The Scenes Series ::insert applause::. As a makeup artist I've learn the most invaluable lessons to success when I'm in the moment, so I figure, hey why not share with my readers. This is coming to you in an effort to help new artist, models, photographers and stylist. We all know the benefits of having a team that can work seamlessly together....AMAZING WORK!!!!
First up we're tackling the models. Now don't shy away if you're not one, chances are even when your just going out on the town with friends some of these tips will be beneficial!
Face Time Factors:
|Come prepared with fresh clean skin|
No Joke, Bathe:
2. Clean Face/Hair/Nails.....Mouth/Body- Ok I know most of you are like ummmmm, yeah that should go without saying...trust me it doesn't! The cleanliness factor goes along way with your beauty & style team. Not only does it give an impression of your level of professionalism (new faces take note), it also makes the job faster for us and less daunting for you. Photographers, that means you guys get more shoot time....ya see a win win for all!

3. My cheerleading coach used bang into our heads "We are a T.E.A.M., Together Everyone Achieves More!" - cheesy right? But true!
Model Lisa K. knows how to let go....
5. So the show is over, the shoot has wrapped and all you want to do is go grab a kale salad and venti unsweetened whatever - before you bolt, take 5 minutes to say a sincere...I repeat sincere thank you to your team. You've made an impression on them for the time of the job now the question is will it last in a favorable manor? That's all on you! Snatching a card and walking away is a huge no-no. Try quick handshake with 'thanks for your time' or 'it was lovely working with you'...you get the idea...these little things are what shape your character for referrals and most importantly more work!!!
These were my top 5 pieces of advice for new models. There will be much more you'll see sprinkled through out the remainder of the series. Everything we as individual artist do affects the entire project, and we all have a common goal....making it the best a client has ever seen!
