First magazine is looking for women in their 30s or 40s (although mature-looking 20s or young-looking 50s is fine) who want to be made over for the holidays.
Plus-size women are ideal, since a main focus of the story will be finding a flattering dress to hide particular trouble spots. In addition, a celebrity hairstylist and makeup artist will be on hand the day of the photo shoot to give you a complimentary haircut/style and makeup application.
What they need from you: A FULL-LENGTH photo of you in the outfit you wore to your last Christmas/Chanukah/New Year’s party. The photo could be from the actual event, but it’s also okay to put it on again and take a picture of yourself.
We would also like a CLOSE-UP shot of just your face. This photo should be more natural, more everyday, and your hair should be styled down.
A brief commentary explaining the body parts you’re most self-conscious about.
Your name, age, occupation, and residence.
Photos sent in by September 13th would be greatly appreciated. The deadline to submit photos is September 30th. Photos can be sent to: Tracy Perez Senior Beauty Editor at firstname.lastname@example.org
