Models Secrets

A MODEL'S BAG

A model's bag is filled with things you've never dreamed of! Here's a sampling of what you would find if you were to peek into the everyday bag of a working model.

 

P.S. Every model gets a workout just from lugging the thing around!

 

Model Secrets

BABY WIPES

This is a great tool for both cleansing the face and removing make-up. Baby wipes are hygienic (use them once, and throw them away) and gentle to the face. You'll find that most versions contain lanolin, which is a skin softener. Purchase the convenient travel pack to freshen up at a moment's notice. It's also useful for taking up a stain or deodorant mark.

 

Hemorrhoid Cream

This is the secret backstage of top runways. We use it on our puffy eyes, along the jaw line and on puffy cheeks. It is an instant face lift, and a favorite of the die-hard party-goers.

 

Garlic and Papaya Tablets

This is an absolute must when it's necessary to get weight off in a hurry. Garlic and papaya tablets act together as a diuretic and can get up to 2.5 kg (6lb) off in a couple of days. Ask your pharmacist for the strongest strength available over the counter. Take two garlic tablets with two papaya tablets before breakfast, lunch and dinner. Eat lightly on these days, staying away from salt. You can buy garlic and papaya tablets in your local chemist or health food shop. Prices vary considerably; but you should be able to get 50 papaya tablets for under Rs. 500 and the same number of garlic tablets for less than Rs. 600. Of course, being natural supplements, they're much safer than the chemical weight-loss products so widely sold.

 

Chalk

Here's natural way to hide stains. carry white chalk for white clothing, and colored chalk for all the different colors of your wardrobe. It is advised that you use these natural treatments over chemical stain removers because they are safer for the planet and because many fabrics can be ruined by chemical versions.

 

White eyeliner

Models find white eyeliner essential to create a wide-eyed look. Use it along the last line and softly smudge it with a sponge applicator.

 

White Eye Shadow

Models use it to create a shimmering face base by mixing it with their foundation. Stroked just under the brow, it lifts the eye.

 

Vaseline

You can create your own tinted gloss, and save lots of money at the same time. Simply mix any of your favorite lipsticks with a dab of Vaseline.

 

Eye Redness Reliever

An excellent way for you to remove spots quickly! In the same way that eye redness relievers take the redness out of the eye, they also remove redness from pimples. Squeeze out a little on a cotton bud. Hold it on the pimple for ten to fifteen seconds, or until it disappears. Models (and the people who hire them) consider it a tragedy to get a pimple, but it's also important for your when you have that big party, to obliterate those little suckers. This will do it, and quickly.

 

Tights

What do you think models do with ripped tights? They make their very own scrunches. You know, those fabulous hair accessories that pull your hair back with so much style, but cost a fortune? Here's what you do. Take the tights' leg (the more opaque styles provide more elasticity), and cut at 5-10cm (2-4in) intervals. You'll find that these scrunches will hold the hair beautifully without any of the stress or split ends that elastic bands can cause.

 

Erasers

What do models do when they lose an earring back? What do they do when their earring is just too heavy to sit properly on the ear? Take the eraser off a pencil and use it to hold that earring in place. Use this when you drop the back of an earring in your office, etc. If you should find yourself in a restaurant, simply take a small piece of cork. It works just a well.

 

Hair Spray

Hair spray is helpful for keeping your hairstyle in place, but it also keeps tights from running. Spray (lightly, please) a thin film up and down your tights before each wearing.

To keep your make-up in place, close your eyes and, holding the can at arm's length, spray light mist of hair spray on your face.

BE VERY CAREFUL IF YOU HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN

 

Satin Pillowcase.

A satin pillowcase is necessary to keep that hair style under control while traveling. Not only will it be an essential when you travel, but you'll enjoy using it at home. Sleeping on a satin pillowcase will help prevent wrinkles while you sleep.

 

Lemon Juice

forget the expensive toners. Models carry lemons in their bags to remove residue from their face and to refresh. Sometimes we carry fresh lemons, but there's only so much one can stuff into those bags. If you do choose to purchase reconstituted lemon juice, make sure that it contains real lemon.

 

Iced Water

You've heard that models drink lots of water. Well that's very true, but only half the story. To get optimum benefits from water, models drink iced water. With iced water, the body needs to use more than 100 calories just to warm itself to room temperature to absorb the water. You are actually using more calories than you are taking in.

 

Teething Rings

Placed on the eyes, teething rings will reduce any puffiness, and provide a well-rested, wide-awake appearance. Frozen teething rings are a soother for sunburned skin.

 

Spoons

Here's yet another way to wake up those eyes. Run a spoon under cold water. Hold the spoon over the eye for about thirty seconds. The coolness of the metal 'wakes up' the eyes.

 

Parsley

Parsley is rich in chlorophyll. It is a major ingredient in all the leading breath fresheners, such a Clorets. Breath sweetening is more effective when it's done from inside the body. There is a lot of advertising going on now to get people to invest in internal breath fresheners. Again, don't spend a lot on these products. Do what knowledgeable models do to ensure 'kissable' breath. Eat the parsley on your plate at mealtimes or carry dried parsley in your bag to instantly freshen your breath. Parsley will keep your breath fresher a lot longer than topical freshens will.

 

Tea

Tea keeps cavities away! Both green and black tea contain fluoride and polyphenols to prevent plaque from adhering to the tooth's surface. Models drink tea for this very reason, and carry their tea bags faithfully. After models are done drinking their tea, they use their cool tea bags to refresh their eyes. Simply squeeze the tea bag so that it isn't dripping, and gently dab the bags under the eye area. If your face is clean, run over the entire face for a quickly pick-me-up!

Unfiltered Apple cider Vinegar

what a versatile product! It's a great blood purifier when you put a tablespoon in a cup of hot water and drink it. You can use it as an astringent for both your face and your hair.

 

Toothbrush

Here's an old model's trick that everyone can copy. Brush your lips! Not only does it take away any chapping, but it plumps up the lip temporarily for that sought-after 'pouty' look. A toothbrush is a super jewellery cleaner, getting into nooks and crannies.

 

Tape

Models always carry double-sided tape to tack up fallen hems, make quick repairs in badly fitting clothing, and 'quick tack' an accessory.

 

Candles

Carry around small birthday candles. Use them to get a stuck zipper going again.

 

Colon Cleanser

There is no need to elaborate, but there is something to be said for the theory that beauty starts from the inside. Top actresses and great beauties throughout history have used this unconventional beauty/health regime. The legendary actress Mae West was famous for her daily enemas. Her skin was like silk until her death. These cleansers are now extremely popular, and readily available at health food shops in kits and capsules.

 

Jelly beans

A jelly bean is a quick energy boost and surprisingly low in calories and fat. Most of these little treats - which are just starting to be carried in sweet shops - contain only 5 or 6 calories each. Compared to a stick of gum (up to 20 calories), it's a pretty good way to snack.

 

Kelp

Models carry kelp tablets to speed up their metabolism.
