How Should I Do My Hair and Makeup When Going To A Casting?
HOW SHOULD I DO MY MAKEUP FOR MY CASTING?
Unless otherwise instructed, 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, chap stick or a neutral tone lip gloss, and a little light neutral blush. For those who need a little more coverage, a BB cream or light foundation are recommended. If you have oily skin, apply translucent powder to get rid of the shine before your casting. Use an eyebrow pencil very lightly and only if needed to fill in. Sounds simple enough, but many models arrive with too much makeup on or no makeup at all which can cost them the modeling opportunity.
Remember, natural is in trend in this industry and it’s best to apply just enough to highlight key areas of your face. Practice your casting call look and take photos on your phone in outside lighting to make sure it is not too heavy! You should look fresh and clean and the look should be very natural.
HOW SHOULD I DO MY HAIR?
If your hair is naturally curly, go to your casting with your curls. Make sure to touch up your curls and tame any frizz, to give you a more polished look. For those who have straight hair, run the straighter through a few times before heading out and add on any frizz cream to smooth out your hair. Avoid heavy products such as gels and too much hairspray. If you have thick heavy hair and need a little more product to hold your hair in place, it’s best to go with the bare minimum or try a light hold hairspray. Quick Tip: Take a pony tail holder with you in case they want to see you with your hair pulled back. Many times they will ask you to do that so they can see more of your profile and features.
