YOU MUST ALSO PREPARE YOUR HAIR AND MAKEUP.
STARS LOOK THAT WAY BECAUSE THEY WORK AT IT !

HOW TO PREPARE
1.  Get a haircut at least a week before the shoot to give it time to settle in. Freshly cut hair is lively and healthy looking.
2.  If you color your hair, be sure you have fresh color for the shoot.
3.  Your hair should be clean for the shoot. However for some of you, You know your hair better than anyone. You know      when it looks best. Plan ahead.
4.  Whitened teeth are key. I don't recommend strips, they don't get in between the teeth. The products with the trays and       gel work well, even the ones from the drugstore. If you can afford it, invest and see your dentist. Do some research.
5.  Exfoliate a couple days before the shoot. If you don't do that find out how. It will amaze you how it looks.
6.  Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize - on a clean face.

IF YOU ARE DOING YOUR OWN MAKEUP
1.  Come camera ready. You will touch up when you arrive.
2.  Bring ALL your makeup products & applicators.
3.  Practice your makeup. Do it and put on your wardrobe to see how it looks together. Can you improve it?
4.  Go to a makeup store (see below) and have your makeup done to learn more about how to do it. This is part of your       craft as an actor. The more professionally done you look when you go to an audition the better. Keep learning about       makeup. THIS GOES FOR MEN TOO.

IF YOU ARE HAVING YOUR MAKEUP DONE
1.  Arrive with a freshly clean face.
2.  Bring your makeup, bases and shadows and colors. It is VERY helpful if the makeup artist wants to see what you use.

A FEW WORDS ON TANNING
Having a warm tanned glow can look great, however ask yourself - Is this something I can maintain? Remember you want to look like your headshots at an audition. If you choose to tan on a bed you really must prepare for this well in advance, you don't want to get in front of a camera with an uneven unfinished tan or with an uneven sunburn. If you choose to do a spray tan it does fade after a short period which may look better. Get some experience to know when to schedule your shoot and to learn how your skin color responds to the tan. Different spray tan brands have different looks on different skin types. Knowing about tanning is important.
