Modelinia's High Heel Boot Camp with Maybelline

So we might be too darn short to walk the runway, but still I think this Heel Boot Camp is intriguing. With the Internet Age also I hope the video I create on modeling on Youtube, will help girls not get scammed or mislead because no matter your height there are opportunities outthere. Your own research, time, energy, and will to try and knowing how to realistically market yourself can get you ahead as a shorter girl. We might not be tall Giraffes but there is a lot of work out there if you know how to chase it. Keep in mind that you do not need a modeling school, and you do not need to sign a contract, you should not pay the agency at all before you get paid for a modeling job, and you should be prepared to create your own photos and marketing material as a shorter girl. This is a cool feature on walking in high heels whether you are a tall model, or not! I wear heels higher than 3 inches, more like wearing 4-5 inches of added height daily, so 3 inches to me is pie!

Here are the four key tips any girl needs to walk in the highest of high

1. Hips. Place your hands at the side of your hips and move your hips side to side to bring your hips to your hands. Remember that the movement of a runway walk comes from your hips!
2. Head. Keep your head back and your chin up. Don't ever push your head forward!
3. Toes. Stretch the arch of your foot and practice walking on your toes in order to train the muscles of your feet.
4. Arms. The movement of your arms must come from your shoulders. Try relaxing your shoulder muscles and swinging your arms like a pendulum.
