Believe it or not some models are paid just because they have beautiful 3D Faux Mink Eyelashes!
Clbro That’s right, modelling is not just about your face and body, it can be broken down into individual body parts, and some of the most lucrative modelling contracts are for models with beautiful body parts.
The most popular body parts that a model may be hired for are hands, eyes and lips, with torso and legs coming a close second. In this beauty obsessed age makeup and beauty products have huge appeal and many beauty industries want to use models with beautiful eyes, 3D Faux Mink Eyelashes and lips to model their make up brands.
Clients often prefer models with full luscious lips that are natural; fillers and implants are not ideal and makeup brands will shy away from using these models. Jewellers will select a model with delicate hands and well-manicured nails for their advertising campaigns and fitness brands will choose a model with a well toned torso.
Body part models may go through their entire career without ever showing their entire face. They can remain anonymous for their entire career (this may be a good or bad thing depending on your point of view).
If you want to become a body part model you need to consider whether any of your body parts are particularly special. A model may have a beautiful and photogenic look as a whole but not necessarily any particular feature that would look good photographed on its own.
Do you have unusual eyes or extra long and thick 3D Faux Mink Eyelashes? Are your lips naturally full and symmetrical? How about your hands? Are they long, delicate, even toned and are your nails naturally strong and attractive? If you bite your nails then this is not for you! Do you have slender long legs? Many models have made their fortune and name by starting as leg models for makes like Pretty Polly; think Rachel Hunter, Penny Lancaster and Sarah Harding from Girls Alloud! What about your torso? Is it toned and lean and defined? If so then you could become a sports model as many sporting brands want photos of defined and fabulous torso for underwear boxes.
The next time you see a pair of beautiful full lips on a poster for the latest lip gloss, or an exquisite eye with long 3D Faux Mink Eyelashes on a TV ad, think about the model behind those features and how much they were paid just for modelling part of their body.
