How I pamper and prep myself before a day of work with Amakesclothing in Leeds! Video's of this are on my Tiktok (@phoebeadams03). #modelprep #beforeshoot #modelblog #amakesclothingleeds #handmadeclothing
Let's begin with the day before the shoot!
8AM start and I always have a green tea. It helps start the digestive system and detox the body, so once I finish my tea I head to the gym.
The key to my workouts the day before a shoot, no heavyweight but killer- reps. I begin a workout with a run and I start with upper body, doing workouts that target my shoulders and back then I will blast a workout for my glutes, side legs, inner thighs, quads and calves. All of that ends in an ab killer which is like 8 different workouts and about 20-30 reps of each of them.
I get home and plan my meals for the day & snacks for the shoots. I always have veggie based meals with lots of protein. My meal portions are very small so having lots of protein keeps be full for the entire day and veggies - BECAUSE THEY ARE VEGGIES.
I love to have a meal like vegan veggie korma or stir fry and make 2 meals out of 1 cooking session. I to keep having snacks of fruit too as it helps with making the skin glow.
I run through bodycare, haircare and skincare after planning food.
In the shower I will wash my hair with a hydrating coconut shampoo. I towel dry and hair and put a banana hair mask on my hair and whilst that sits for roughly 10 minutes, I will exfoliate and use a body scrub after shaving (to be extra soft). I will rinse out the hair mask and gently towel dry my hair again. I will add leave in conditioner and gently comb through my hair and leave it to air dry.
Starting my skincare I have a black soap exfoliating bar from The Carbon Theory and I pair it with the citrus tonic. If my skin needs extra attention I will use a facial steamer and a purifying face scrub.
If my face is really puffy from a reaction or something, I will use an ice cube on my face before using my go - to moisturiser: Simple mattifying moisturiser. As well as my face I need to moisturise the rest of my body and I use Aveno body lotion.
After being all prepped for the shoot I will pack my bag and run over the brief. In my Tiktok video I mention my model essentials I carry with me to shoots, so if you wanted to find out more check out @phoebeadams03 on TikTok!
Checking the brief for working with Amakesclothing means looking at the usual aesthetic, reading through the information & conversation previously had, looking at the other models and their types of poses, then looking at other models and finding poses similar and I do all of this before even moving!
I then get up in front of the mirror, play some music and get practicing.
