WHAT'S IN MY BAG?

In the world of modelling there’s a number of factors that can go wrong and cause a few hiccups. From your mobile phone battery dying on the way to a casting, to shooting outdoors in terrible weather conditions where your makeup can come off in a matter of minutes. Over the past year and a half, I’ve picked up a few solutions that have helped to ensure everything runs as smoothly as possible (well on my part anyway) and these can all be kept in your bag!

Lipsticks

Endless lipsticks. I’m a bit of a lipstick fiend so I will carry three or four in my bag at once and the chances are I’ll only use one at a time and I’ll run it down to a little stump. My favourite lipsticks are Mac’s ‘Yash’ and ‘Taupe’. They’re both nude shades so great for just adding a bit of colour to my lips for castings and adding that extra pop.

Diary

I always keep my diary to hand in my bag. I’m constantly juggling modelling with university, my job at Topman and my promotions job in town. I’m a bit of a ditzy person so if I don’t have my diary on me I’d be constantly guessing the days I have free. It’s a bit old school but I’m a visual person so seeing it down on paper makes it a lot easier for me to remember my schedule.

Refreshments

For me it’s essential I have a bottle of water and a snack with me. My days constantly change so I never know when I’m going to sit down for a big meal so I’ll bring a few snacks to keep me going. I always try and keep hydrated too so having a bottle of water in my bag is always handy.

Make Up

I like having a little kit of makeup with me even if I know makeup is provided for a shoot. It’s very rare but if the makeup artist doesn’t turn up I know I can quickly put on a base layer of makeup and the shoot will still go ahead.


Phone and Charger

My phone charger goes with me everywhere I go. On the breaks of shoots I always go on my phone either to do uni work or to check my social media so it quickly drains the battery.

Perfume

I love having a bottle of perfume in my bag, my favourite scents at the minute are Chance Chanel Eau fraiche and Paco Robanne’s Olympea. I often put it on as soon as I get up as if I’m wearing clothes by a designer I don’t want leaving a perfume smell on them.

Underwear (yes, you heard it right)

People often look at me funny if they’re searching for something in my bag, but I always carry a spare pair of nude underwear. I’ll always wear nude underwear to a shoot but sometimes they aren’t exactly right so I’ll always carry spares in case.

Purse!

My purse is an obvious choice. The amount of times I’ve been on the way to a shoot and I’ve had an empty tank of petrol and I’m so glad I’ve had my purse on me!
