Model Testing can mean many things to many people, but for me it means shooting with a model with little-to-no-makeup in an interesting way. To show his/her best features with minimal distractions, brushed brows, mascara and lipgloss is more than enough.
This is important because it shows clients, model agents, etc. what you look like (your face, skin and body) with little to no makeup, and minimal editing other than a few pimples removed and a couple of quick adjustments on the computer. It’s very raw, but still very beautiful.
