If you don't try you will never know

Being short isn't the issue, that's not enough to be held back, it's all about finding ways to use what you do have and make it marketable...in any pursuit...modeling or any career path you pursue.

Moms don't give up your beauty routine


A fellow Mom asked me today in our awesome music class, "How do you always look so put together with blush and all?" I told her, while Phoenix plays in the morning I run around back and forth getting dressed in about 10 minutes, because we don't leave until I'm ready for the day... And we gotta get out of the apartment and get busy! I believe you can still keep your mascara and be a Mom, I'm not giving up stuff like cute jeans, my jewelry, my long hair, my beauty routine, it just means learning to be quicker about it and sticking to the basics that work. Good foundation or powder, GOOD liner and Mascara, a stay-on lip gloss, and if there is time, a dash of blush. I usually put on earrings in the elevator if Phoenix is in a good mood I do my makeup once a day, maybe touch up if I'm awake enough to go out for dinner or meet the girls. Another thing, you gotta pick and choose, to have your face means you might not get to brush your hair, to have great hair means you might leave the house without earrings or eyelashes curled.

You're too short to get support


So the Model Alliance has been getting great buzz and I like what they are after, but their service doesn't help the shorter models out there or the print models of any size. Maybe in the future? A model is not just a tall giraffe fashion model, in fact the biggest area of the modeling industry is PRINT! Not FASHION. FASHION makes up a very small percent of the models we see daily in print ads. From babies to grandma models, the support the Model Alliance should offer should be for all. Not just with a narrow eye for the tall-chicks-only. Why ONLY fashion models can join? Why not commercial print models working w print agency in NYC too? @ModelAllianceNY This article in The New York Times caught my eye on The Model Alliances Services, but it made me roll my eyes when I went to the website and had to be a fashion model with a fashion agency to join? I like their efforts for trying for the tall chicks, cool, that's nice...but that isn't the WHOLE spectrum of the industry and I hope to see their doors open for working models of all types in the near future.
