When your favorite eye shadow is broken, don’t despair. Apply a small amount of rubbing alcohol and mix it with your eye shadow into a smooth paste. Pat it down with a spoon and let it sit overnight. It will be good as new and ready to use. This also works with powdered blush. By extending the life of your powdered beauty products, you will save money.
Coconut oil is rich in antioxidants and vitamin E. It contains antibacterial and antimicrobial properties that make it an ideal moisturizer. It actually penetrates the skin and hydrates deep into the skin tissue. AND, it is one of nature’s organic sunscreens. This is a ‘win-win’ product, hands down!
Once a designer has their garments (collection) ready, they hire showroom models to present the designs to buyers, department stores and special clients. In addition to modeling the garment, sometimes a showroom model is required to talk about what they are wearing. That means they must be smart, outgoing and have a great smile! Showroom modeling can be conducted inside a designer’s office, department store, retail store or in a convention setting.

Now that fall is here, you’ll want to consider a smooth transition from summer to fall with your beauty routine. A DIY or professional facial is a great way to kick off a new season. A thicker moisturizer will keep your skin and neck soft and flake free. Remember to apply sunscreen as harmful UVA rays are present regardless if the skies are gray. Be sure to continue using an eye cream and perhaps switching your skin care products if your skin tends to be drier during the fall and winter months. If the summer months damaged your hair from salt water, chlorine and sun, get in the habit of doing weekly deep conditioning treatments. Your hair would love a vacation from blow dryers, flat irons, curling wands and chemical process; consider going “au naturale”! Don’t forget your hands; cuticles get very dry so invest in cuticle oil and a deep penetrating hand cream. Remember to wear gloves in the colder months!
A body double is a term used in film-making. A body double substitute replaces the credited actor on film where the character’s body is shown but the face of the actor is either not visible or shown indistinctly.
An actor’s ‘type’ is essentially a combination of their personality and external physical appearance. It is considered their character type or persona based almost entirely on first impressions. People involved with casting are in the business of searching for the right ‘types’ of actors to fill particular roles. An actor that can pinpoint their type and market themselves clearly has got a distinct advantage over the competition.
Have you ever noticed how Indian women have the most beautiful and shiniest hair? They use coconut oil. It’s great for the scalp and a scalp massage with coconut oil will promote blood circulation, hair growth plus a deep conditioning treatment for the hair. Use a tablespoon of coconut oil, heat it up and massage on your head. Leave on for 1 – 2 hours before washing off!
Set your portfolio down and let the agent look through it at his or her own pace. Don’t babble and give commentary as the agent looks through it. If they have a question, they will ask you. Often they are looking and thinking – so allow them their silence while they do their ‘job’. Let the photos speak for themselves. Don’t apologize for any photos; if they are bad, they shouldn’t be in your portfolio. Don’t worry if the agent doesn’t like some of the shots. They may feel the photos give you the wrong image. Once they have finished looking through your portfolio, then ask for their opinion. Free advice is just that – FREE! Remember to thank you the agent for their time!
