These are the four basic things you need to have and of course you need you to have a nice face. The face doesn’t have to conventionally beautiful as long as you have the right body and the basics.”
Rakesh Thokore said, “Make up and style plays a very crucial role in the presentation of the models. It transforms the model to a different level.” He further added, “The selection process is very critical as it sets the standard for the models as well as FDCI.”
