A model’s look is their calling card. It’s the one thing that sets them apart from every other pretty face on the planet. Though it may take time to find yours, here’s how you can start figuring out the best look for you.
Cement Your Ego
How confident you are in yourself shines through clearer than any smile you could send at a camera. Long lasting models have a fiery belief in their worth that can’t be faked. Before you can settle on an expression, you have to absolutely believe that you are the best and are willing to do what it takes to rise through the ranks. Once you have this down, the rest is easy.
Judge Your Face
What kind of expression do you want to be known for? Is it happiness? Anger? Sadness? What emotion truly brings out the most interesting look on your face? It may not be the one that makes you look the most beautiful. Spend time in front of a mirror every day practicing different looks. Which ones do you like? Which ones do you not like? Why don’t you like them? Why do you like them? The more answers you can dig up, the more objectively you can shape your style.
Pose for Everything
When you go in for photo shoots, work through all of the faces you’ve practiced in the mirror, regardless of if you liked them or not. Try out things you’ve never tried before. Experiment for as long as you can. When you get the photos back, you can then compare your thoughts on your mirror faces to how they actually look in a professional setting. Show these photos to artists you trust so they can tell you which ones they like the best, and build your best expression from there.
