All my castings are different, and the casting director or marketing professional, or editor is always looking for something different, it makes my job as a model involve guessing a lot.
I had two castings today.
For the fitness casting I was told it was for my whole body, so I figured I should wear something that showed it. So I put on my bikini and some work out short shorts, I wore a tank top over my bikini top and headed to Third Ave. I had on minimal makeup because for a fitness editorial usually they don't want you to have full makeup applied. Just curled my lashes, and some light lip-gloss. I walked into the office ready. A couple other girls were waiting in the reception area, one in jeans, and one in a dress. (I guess I could have changed here after -all but I like to walk in looking the part). When it was my turn I had to show my body, side profile, and flex my arms and legs, I forgot a hair tie, (hint) but it worked out well. I am not a pro-fitness model but I think I have a nice enough body for a health editorial.
On to the next casting:
The hair company wanted to see your face and hair length, and I had to wear something with a solid color (I chose a red tube dress) and fluffed my hair a little before I went in, my hair is pin straight so it is hard for it to have bounce without spending 30 minutes on it sometimes. Just didn’t have time in-between my commute today.
Before I went in I added some lipstick and mascara to give my face a more beauty look.
