Male Model Application
It is a popular misconception that makeup is solely used by females. Unbeknownst to the public, nearly all male television personalities and models seen in everyday media do in fact wear makeup. Makeup is essential. However, your makeup application for your professional headshots/portfolio needs to be as natural as possible. This is a fundamental step in the process of being selected for a job, as the majority of clients favour a subtle look (In other words, they’re looking for a blank canvas), as if booked, a client will expect you to look in the flesh as you do on your model profile. Agents, scouts and brands do not favour deception, they value your true features. For your headshots/portfolio, we recommend using concealer to even any imperfections of your skin, light contouring to accentuate your cheekbones & a dab of vaseline to eliminate any dryness of the lips.
A professional headshot / portfolio is a crucial element of becoming a successful model. A professional photography studio offers a controlled environment, in regards to the exposure levels of light and shadow. Professional photography studios will offer experience and guidance when it comes to posture and posing, which is excellent for those who are less confident in posing. It is important that your pictures are high definition, clear of all obstacles and filters and are well lit.
