An Actor’s Physical Type

An Actor's Physical TypeAn actor’s “type” is essentially a combination of their personality and external physical appearance. It’s what would be 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 distinctive advantage over the competition.

Why Is A “Thank You” Important?

Why Is A "Thank You" Important?Our fast paced world has impacted our social graces (not in a good way) and we live in a world of consumerism so we take a lot for granted! We should always say thank you when someone does something for us (big or small). It we start forgetting common courtesy, life becomes unpleasant for us. A simple verbal thank you is often enough but sometimes a different thank you is more appropriate. Send a written note, flowers, phone call, simple gift or a gift of time. The people in your life will be acknowledged and feel they are important to you!

Beauty Pet Peeves

Beauty Pet PeevesWe were hoping to avoid venting about our beauty pet peeves but alas we feel obligated to write about what drives us crazy!

  • FOUNDATION THAT DOESN’T MATCH! It is suppose to match your neck and not look like a mask on your face.
  • UNBLENDED anything! Please, blend, blend and blend!
  • LIP LINER THAT IS THREE SHADES DARKER THEN YOUR LIPSTICK! Line your lips in a color that either matches your lipstick shade or is darn close to it. Be sure to clean up the outside of your lips with concealer.
  • EYEBROWS THAT LOOK LIKE A STENCIL – Your eyebrows should look natural and not like they were stenciled on with a Sharpie!
