So, you have a casting or go-see coming up and want to make sure you do arrive with the right hair and makeup for it. Let’s keep in mind that casting directors like to see the real you. They like to see the natural you. Not the just rolled out of bed you, they want their talent to show up with a minimal makeup but yet still presentable. The reason for this is because they may have a specific look in mind for their talent, and if you come with full faced make up it can be hard for the bookers to imagine the look they are going for on you. Keep in mind, it is always easier to add to your look as opposed to taking away from it.
So What Is a Modeling Industry Natural Make Up Look?
Let’s discuss some examples of what natural makeup would consist of. All you need is concealer to cover up any blemishes or uneven skin tones, a light coat of mascara to define your eyes on camera, and chap stick or a neutral tone lip gloss. For those who need a little more coverage, a BB cream like this one from IT Cosmetics. would be something to have on hand. Remember, natural is in trend in this industry and it’s best to apply just enough to highlight key areas of the face.
What Should I Do With My Hair?
If your hair is naturally curly, go to your casting with your curls. Make sure to touch up a few curls, and any frizz, to give you a more polished look. For those who have straight hair, run the straighter through a few times to get rid of any loose hairs. Avoid heavy products such as gels and hairsprays. If you have thick heavy hair and need a little product to hold your hair in place, it’s best to go with the bare minimum or a light hold hair spray like this one from Bumble and Bumble. Take a pony tail holder with you in case they want to see you with your hair pulled back.
Remember it’s all about the real you!
