7 Modelling tips you can start with
Let me walk you through how you can become a model in Nigeria with just these few simple tips.
1. Eat balanced diet: The saying “we are what we eat” is not far from the truth. If you keep eating junk food, your body physique will look all shabby and you skin will look flabby.
Balanced diet will give you the right physique for a natural model look.
Junk foods like ice cream, sausage, shawarma, pizza, meat pie and many others contain a lot of calories.
What do calories do to you? They add fat to your body. Have you ever seen a chubby model? No, right.
So stop with all the junks and get engaged in stuffs like vegetables, carrots, proteins and others.
2. Work on your physique: Obviously, you need to work on your physique. This is one crazy characteristic thay makes a model stand out from their peers.
A model’s physiqu is very different and attractive one way or another.
When your appearance is out of balance, your modelling career is already nearing the beginning of the end. You can get a dietician or therapist to give you the right food to get your physique on track.
As a man, you need your abs, chest and legs to be attractive. As a lady, obviously, your boobs and butt is very important.
There are many YouTube videos to assist you on this. You an search them on YouTube and watch them.
After that, keep practicing and practicing until you get the right desired shape for a model. It will not be an easy task getting that banging body but you have to do what you have to do for your career.
3. Your face: A banging body without a face is like a train without an engine (more or less).
Work in that face of yours because it is your selling feature. You should have a glowing face. Find the perfect face treatment and do not take risk of using one you don’t know about.
Surely, we are not perfect and we don’t know who is the most handsome or beautiful girl, but we can strive to attain 90% perfection at least.
Whatever brings out the best in you, enhance it more. According to scientific research, drinking lots of water daily can reduce wrinkles. Fruits, vegetable and water are very essential.
4. Your hair: Not every hairstyle is the right fit for you. What you need to do is find the right hairstyle for you.
Your hair compliments your face and it is important to take good care of it.
Perform some experiments to see the right fitikng fr you. Is it oval, oblong, straight etc.
5. Walking style: A woman who walks well is very attractive to the public and so is a man.
If you have a bad walking step, take some time to correct them. Many videos and materials can help you achieve that if you know where to look.
You don’t want to be the kind of model that falls on the stage whole walking. That will be a huge embarrassment for you.
Practice a good walking posture. This is mostly for runway models but it won’t do you no harm to also practice this.
6. Have a good portfolio: To land any modeling JOB, you need an amazing portfolio. In this era of social media, you can easily achieve that portfolio.
Get a good competent photographer to give you some shots from different angles. Don’t be scared to try something new. A personal blog is also an addition to this.
