MODELLAUNCHER unveils a change in strategy, a new lip product, and our biggest modeling contest yet!
2015 is going to be a big year for MODELLAUNCHER, that much is clear. One of the most exciting changes here at MODELLAUNCHER is a change in our marketing strategy. Due to the unfulfilled needs of the professional makeup industry, MODELLAUNCHER aspires to become the top makeup brand used by professionals in the fashion industry. You’ll never find MODELLAUNCHER products at your local grocery or drug store, but we are in negotiations with carefully selected boutiques that are interested in distributing our makeup. You can also expect us to have a brick-and-mortar MODELLAUNCHER flagship store up and running here in Miami by the end of the year! How exciting is that?
In other news, we’ve released a brand new lip product! The LIPTOXYL SHEER TINT LIP COLOR is like the love-child of our FASHION FORWARD LIPSTICK and your favorite lip balm. Its rich and creamy formula is moisturizing enough to wear all day long and subtle enough to pair with a smokey eye, or to just wear underneath your lipstick! Try for yourself. Be sure to post a selfie wearing our makeup and tag us @MODELLAUNCHER and #MODELLAUNCHER for a chance to be featured on our Instagram page!
Lastly, as promised, we’ve opened auditions for our latest modeling contest: FACE OF FASHION. This contest is only for aspiring models 18 and up, but we’re offering more prizes than ever! Here’s how it works…
Once auditions are closed, voting will begin like any other contest
Contestants will advance rounds based on highest votes, just like any other contest
The top 32 contestants at the end will receive some kind of prize, ranging anywhere from a MODELLAUNCHER Cosmetics Gift Card to an exclusive invitation to the upcoming OCEAN DRIVE Contest. This is important because if you don’t place in the top 16, the only way to get an invitation to compete in the OCEAN DRIVE Contest is with a $50 purchase of MODELLAUNCHER Cosmetics.
The final winner of the OCEAN DRIVE Contest will be flown to Miami and featured as the model for a published cosmetics ad in Ocean Drive Magazine
If you’re an aspiring model, you know this is an amazing opportunity! To be published in a magazine advertisement for a real cosmetics company is a great addition to any modeling résumé, not to mention great exposure.

As a model, one of the most frustrating things I’ve heard from photographers is how hard it is working with a model who just doesn’t get it. So many people out there think that modeling is easy; all you have to do is stand there and be pretty. But nothing could be further from the truth! It is imperative that models evoke a variety of expressions, angles, and poses to be effective and successful. Furthermore, being pretty isn’t really necessary either! There are many beautiful women out there that simply don’t photograph well. On the other hand, there are plenty of world-renowned supermodels whose faces or bodies don’t conform to conventional standards of beauty (i.e. Lindsey Wixon, Lily Cole, and Lara Stone.)
We at MODELLAUNCHER are excited to announce the launch of MODELLAUNCHER France on Facebook and Instagram. Within the next few weeks, the MODELLAUNCHER website will also be replicated completely in French!
We’re very excited about this step outside of US borders as we aim to become the most globally recognizable brand in cosmetics. We know that getting to the pinnacle of this industry is a lofty goal but with your help, and the help of vocal past winners like Emilee Miller and Lexa Weyes, we are up to the challenge!!

The main goal of most aspiring models is to get signed to a modeling agency that can represent them and find them paid jobs. But it is very rare that a model is signed to an agency without a portfolio of her work to show! One of the best things an aspiring model can do is to accept what is referred to in the industry as “trade” work with talented and experienced photographers and other artists.
In order to network and build her portfolio most efficiently, a model should first have a clear view of what kind of model she wants to be! This depends on a lot of things, not the least of which is her current “look.” If she’s changed her hair dramatically, she should re-evaluate what her appearance now says to the world.
