Get the Model Look!

For a lot of men and women, young and old alike, looking like a model is an important personal goal. Looking beautiful, looking fit, looking healthy and happy can only boost your confidence which also boosts many different areas in your life. Below we are going to give you some simple tips on how to look like a model so you can find yourself as fierce as the best of them!

Get fit: You don't need to be 90 pounds to look like a model, but you do need to look healthy! Keeping a healthy diet, well hydrated and partaking in regular exercise enhances your mood, keeps skin glowing and allows your body to be in shape to handle just about anything thrown at it; from photo shoots that take hours to doing a presentation in front of your peers, you don't want your body to fail you! If you are happy with your body now, great! Work it! If you are looking for improvements, talk to your doctor so you can arrange a diet and exercise program that would better suit your body and lifestyle.

Be seen: Go out and do fun things! You never know who's watching but if you're smiling, being positive and having a great time, you could make a lasting impression on some people you would have never met otherwise. Plus, what's the point of looking fabulous if no one can see you?

Develop Poise: While there are some models with "poor posture" out there, they are the exception, not the rule! Keeping your shoulders down and back, chin perked up and moving with the grace of a dancer is going to help you appear more confident and will all around flatter your form. Would you want to book the model hunched in her chair or the one standing proudly, filling the room with their great energy? You can practice your posture by walking around the house balancing books perched upon your head.

Have a Style: Mind your style, head to toe. All it takes is some bad hair or a beaten up pair of shoes to wreck an entire outfit. Finding your own personal style is always a plus. If you're wearing clothes that you know and are comfortable in, you are much more confident. Having a look that is consistent will help you stand out and be memorable. Dress as an individual, even if it means you're dressing like everyone else, just make sure you're OWNING it! And remember, clothes should compliment you; make sure you are wearing things that work for your skin tone, height, body type, etc.

Be Confident:
Above all else, be confident! If you don't believe in you, who else will? You can be dressed the best, you could have done your make-up perfectly, your hair may be flawlessly styled, but if you are not confident, it will have all been for nothing. Don't have the confidence today? Practice your poise and fake it until you make it! Confidence is something that can take time and energy to build, but it can be built! Never give up on yourself.
