CLEO (Singapore) - - BEAUTY -

don’t need a flaw­less face to be a model. Ac­cord­ing to Bonita Ma, head booker of Ba­sic Mod­els Man­age­ment, any­one who has pretty hands or feet can ap­ply.

Don’t for a sec­ond think this is an easy job. “Some mod­els don’t know how to po­si­tion their hands dain­tily, or how to hold a prod­uct so their hands still look good. This takes a lot of prac­tice, ”adds Bonita.

Plus, “You’ll need to take good care of your hands or feet, and there should be no scars. Nails should be neatly filed be­fore cast­ing, and tiny hairs have to be re­moved or waxed,” she says.

To get your­self a gig, you ap­ply to a ta­lent or model agency and are gen­er­ally paid $300 to $600 for a half-day shoot.

Be­ing a hand model re­quires you to look af­ter your body (or at least parts of it) well.
