Here’s an article that will guide you to the potential future in the beauty industry as a model . What is Beauty Modelling? Beauty modelling, also known as face modelling, is a category of modelling that takes place predominantly in the beauty industry – such as skincare, make-up and cosmetics. Models regularly require extremely close-up photos of their faces, or parts of their faces, so it’s important beauty models are well-groomed and take care of their skin, hair and nails. The beauty industry tends to look for people who are naturally good-looking, unlike high fashion which tends to favour a unique look. Beauty Modelling is also a particular subset of photography where the focus is primarily on the face, more so than anything else. Who is a beauty model? A beauty model is a model required to work for cosmetic brands including L’Oreal, Lauder, Iman e.t.c Beauty models tend to have “perfect” teeth and a sharp, defined jawline. They will also have attractive ears, sparkling eyes, and an even nose and mouth. Most brands and agencies will be looking for symmetry as it is thought that this is more attractive. High cheekbones will also help as this will really help to emphasize make-up. Successful beauty models do not have to have all these qualities, but having at least one good stand-out feature will definitely help agents to notice a model. Also, knowing how to work the camera by Understanding the position of your face, lighting and how to make the most of your bone structure is vital.

        1. The term modelling originates from the Middle French word ‘modelle’. Modelling as a concept began with people posing for paintings and portraits, which broadened to photographing models for newspapers when the camera was invented in the early 1800s. Modelling was established as a profession in 1853 by Charles Frederick Worth, the “father of haute couture”, when he asked his wife, Marie Vernet Worth, to model the clothes he designed.Marie Augustine Vernet, is considered to be the first ever fashion model. The term “house model” was coined to describe this type of work. Eventually, this became common practice for Parisian fashion houses. There were no standard physical measurement requirements for a model, and most designers would use women of varying sizes to demonstrate variety in their designs. Although poorly paid and barely respectable, they were also considered exceptionally glamorous. From behind the scenes, they would be summoned several times a day to model gowns for private customers and professional buyers alike, under the direction of the vendeuse. Modeling in the 1940’s With the development of fashion photography, the modelling profession expanded to photo modelling. Models remained fairly anonymous, and relatively poorly paid, until the late 1940s, when the world’s first three supermodels, Barbara Goalen, Bettina Graziani and Lisa Fonssagrives began commanding very large sums. During the 1940s and 1950s, Graziani was the most photographed woman in France and the undisputed queen of couture, while Fonssagrives appeared on over 200 Vogue covers; her name recognition led to the importance of Vogue in shaping the careers of fashion models. One of the most popular models during the 1940s was Jinx Falkenburg who was paid $25 per hour, a large sum at the time.
