How To Ace A Modelling Casting

  • Amy Bebbington

A modelling casting is a huge opportunity in the career of any model. Whether it’s your first or your five hundredth chance to show your potential, there are always ways you can improve. Whilst on the surface, it’s all about whether or not you have the right ‘look’ by nature, a modelling casting is actually looking for a little bit more.

Preparing For A Modelling Casting

Whilst you’re waiting for the day to arrive, there are plenty of ways that you can prepare. It’s important to make sure you’re eating right and getting plenty of exercise in the lead up, to ensure that your body is in an optimum condition. In addition, you should keep hydrated and pay attention to your skincare regime, all to keep your skin looking healthy and glowing. Sleep is imperative, too.


On the day of the modelling casting, you should make sure that you have had plenty of rest, and that you are clean and presentable. Wash your hair and make sure your nails are in good condition. Grooming is important, so making sure your eyebrows are waxed and that you’ve got neat clothes on will help.

You should also read any preparation notes. Do they want you in full makeup? No makeup at all? What clothing have they requested you wear? Make sure you follow their instructions exactly, or they’ll think you can’t follow direction properly.

Dos And Don’ts At A Modelling Casting

You will want to arrive on time, and what’s more, you will want to ensure that you’re behaving the part. At the end of the day, you’re looking to be hired for a job, and you wouldn’t walk into a job interview acting unprofessional. The same rules apply here! That means no lateness, and no attitude.


Whilst it can seem tempting to behave like a diva, it’s not cute. If you’re going to be a nightmare to work with, nobody is going to want to take the chance on you, which could hurt your career.

At the end of the day, you should remember that this is a chance to show off who you are in order to be able to finally realize your dreams. You’re lucky to have this chance so just smile, enjoy it and make sure you appear engaged and interested.
