Didn’t get ten hours of sleep last night? According to ALLURE, don’t worry—rest isn’t the only remedy for dark circles and puffy eyes. Start with a depuffing gel (Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller Gel shrinks bags fast), and then camouflage dark under eye circles by patting on a creamy concealer, like Neutrogena Healthy Skin Brightening Eye Perfector, and no one will be the wiser. Your bags will be sent packing!
Sometimes, accents and dialects are used in TV commercials. Do you know the difference between the two? An “accent’ is foreign and a ‘dialect’ is regional. In other words, if you were raised in the southern part of the US, you have a southern dialect. If you came to the US from Italy, you would have an accent.
Should you use an accent or dialect when auditioning for a commercial? If the script doesn’t call for it, the answer is no. If the director wants an accent or dialect, he/she will let you know either in the script or inform you at the audition.

More money is made by actors in TV commercials than by actors in all stage plays combined and believe it or not, more money is made by actors in commercials than in all feature films combined, including all video and DVD sales nationally and internationally.
Commercials employ more actors than do televisions shows and feature films! A TV show may only air once or a few times whereas a TV commercial (if not a buy-out) can air many times a day, for many years, which means the actor is getting paid every time it airs even though he/she may have only worked a few hours or a day filming the commercial!
The pay is so exceptional for acting in commercials that many star actors are now begging to do commercials!
According to British Vogue, popular jean company Wrangler is releasing their first pair of moisturizing jeans via their new Denim Spa jeans line, which includes a skinny-fit jean that is pumped up with ingredients that help fight against the “dehydrating effects” of denim.
The jeans come in three finishes– Aloe Vera, Olive Extract and Smooth Legs, which not only adds moisture to legs, but also helps fight cellulite using ingredients like apricot kernel oil and Shea butter. The special formula stay intact in your pair of jeans for up to 95 wears, at which point you can buy a “reload spray” to add more moisture back in.
Many of the NYC and European agencies have gone to digital portfolios because it saves a lot of money versus printed photos. Most local agencies still use the traditional portfolios. However, once a model gets to NYC or any other major modeling market it is a must to have an ipad not only for their photos but for all the other useful apps including directions to castings.
The most exciting trends, to name just a few that we saw on the runways for spring are: oversize shades, cropped tops, a-line skirts, pointy flats, evening shorts, asymmetrical pieces, Lucite purses, graphic colored heels, sweetheart neckline dresses, tuxedo jackets, transparent fabrics, open-toe booties, versatile clutches, iridescent finishes, lots of soft pink and milky whites. The “WOW” trend was any combination of black and white. We really loved the 60’s Mod Squad feel to so many of the black and white stripes and eye popping high contrast geometric prints!
