Skincare and beauty is big business, especially in the modelling industry and something most of us invest heavily into. Believing we need the latest moisturiser, serum or foundation to get the flawless complexion we are aspiring to, endless hours desperately searching for the perfect shade of lipstick or the eyeliner that is apparently smudge resistant – does that really exist?!

Commercial Model Criteria
The criteria to be a commercial model is very different to that of a fashion model, Models Direct represents commercial models and talent and hopefully this blog will explain a few of the differences.
Commercial models are ‘real people’ who have a good look and often experienced in acting, singing, dancing or another talent, they are used to performing to an audience or portraying a different character. The criteria for commercial models is very varied, clients often require a wide diversity in model looks, size, ethnicity, age and location depending on the product or service they are promoting.
Commercial models are used in promoting everyday products, they are appealing to the majority, so the models sourced need to be relatable to the consumer.
How much do Commercial Models earn??
Earnings can vary depending on many factors, models experience, length of assignment and client budget. A good agent will negotiate the best rate for you – commercial models can expect to earn anything from £150 to £1000’s!
Aspiring models can often be confused in exactly what a commercial model is and what requirements a commercial modelling agency will be looking for – Models Direct are a commercial modelling agency and explain what their dedicated team are looking for on a daily basis.
