What sets models aside is the look and appearances from their physiques. Approach dietetics and let him/her take you through diets that will neither increase your weight or make you look out of shape.

Aspiring to be a model you have to suffer for it by regular exercise, not only will it make you look good but will add tremendously to your health status.
2. YOUR FACE IS YOUR MIRROR:
Work on your face because, it is the mirror through which others sees you and can effectively say how you look like. Have a glowing facial skin. Find the perfect face cream... Make sure you experiment with various products before settling for one.
It is your duty to know which parts of your body brings the most out of you. We all have our flaws, either your nose, mouth, eyes that does that charming thing; make it a priority to rub-beauty out of it. According to research, drinking more water daily and eating fruits and vegetables prevents quick ageing. These are the best doctors in the world, make use of them.
3. HAIR STYLE:
The problem with most people in this part of the world is that, they always like to do what someone else did. The hair style you see that fits Amanda will never fit you unless you search and examine the one good for you. This depends on the shape of your head, what you should do is to hit the salon and continue to experiment with various hair styles until you find the one that suits you. This will also help you to determine the right spectacle to wear.
4. THE WAY YOU WALK:
Your working style is the charming skill-killer to attract attention, work on your walking styles because, I have seen great models kicked out due to ugly walking style and some fall on stage and that is an accident.
Make sure you have a good mirror, walk and admire yourself. Practice--Keep practicing till you get better and better. Although this is mainly for Runway models, but whichever category you aspire, having a great walking step is an advantage.
