(VIDEO) WE INVESTIGATE: WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BE “SHOW-READY”?

When people see us attending these events, they are seeing a final product. But do your friends, peers, and colleagues really know just how much time, effort, and money goes into looking show-ready? I did a lil’ digging thanks to the help of a couple of friends (…who shall remain nameless 😉 to give everyone a little bts insight.

First, let’s start with HAIR. Everyone has their own signature look. Some looks are lower-maintenance, some require trips to the salon, and some require some DIY know-how. Cue:

Any guesses on how much a bag of extensions might cost in terms of hours worked?

Next up…

Let’s talk LASHES! Lashes really give that boost of looking awake even though maybe you stayed up a little late the night before and are slightly dying on the inside the morning after (…not that I would know anything about that, ha ha). They also enhance your look when taking pics/vids. I personally prefer lash extensions just because they’re less time consuming and lower maintenance once they’re applied versus messing with glue-on strip lashes. I’m telling you, once the corners lift, your night is O-V-E-R! So for the latter reference, just how many pairs of lashes should one bring for a week-long event? We’re enlightened here:

Pro-tip from our friends: always bring extras!

Strip lashes typically run anywhere between $4-5/pair for the drug store brands, and upwards of $11-$20/pair for faux mink or more luxe lash lines. I still love good old fashioned Ardell lashes that run around $4/pair and still look fly. You don’t always need to spend major to look amazing. 😉

And what about wardrobe, shoes and accessories? Any advice from our friends on how to organize your different looks during multi-day events?

Okay, so maybe not so much. LOL

Hey, no judgement… you’re usually shuffling with limited time between different events and parties, so keeping organized is not always the easiest.

Pro-tip: pull together looks when packing so as not to overpack (and possibly exceed the airline’s 50lb. checked luggage weight limit)!

Finally, what about MAKEUP? In an ideal world, we’d all have our own personal hair/make-up artists to glam us up in a snap, but for most of us, it’ll take some quick-handed finesse to get the job done…

 

So I think it’s safe to say that if you see a well put together performer (in any circumstance, but especially) at one of these shows, give them a compliment and let them know that you appreciate his or her efforts.

All Streamate Models are eligible to participate and earn prizes during this event.

NOTE: A couple of things that I’ve noticed in previous contests that I felt important to mention here

(1) If you’re going to stream with another performer or a guest performer, they MUST have the required documents uploaded to your account ahead of any live cam shows.

(2) Dual-streaming/multi-casting is not permitted. You may broadcast your shows from only 1 profile at a time. Simulcasting the same show onto multiple profiles is not permitted, and you put your account at risk of suspension by doing so. 

If you are ever uncertain as to whether or not something is permitted regarding your live cam shows on Streamate, please do not hesitate to reach out to our teams to check in advance- we’re always happy to help. 🙂

Share the love! If you’re participating in this contest, share your contest selfies with us on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag, #smcontest.

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!

Streamate Bonus Week is Happening NOW through 4/28 (GMT)

What an insane past couple of weeks it has been at Streamate HQ! From FOSTA/SESTA updates to the closure of First Choice Pay, Streamate teams got into gear to make sure everyone who is a part of the Streamate fam is covered during this time of transition. Although there are a still a few more kinks to work out following some of these unforeseen events, SM wanted to show gratitude to its model community and to also help everyone stay motivated— so we figured bringing back Bonus Week was an excellent way to do this. 🙂

Happening from 4/22(GMT) through 4/28 (GMT), all models on the Streamate Network with at least $25 in earnings will receive a 20% bonus from Streamate. The bonus amount will be equivalent to 20% of your eligible earnings generated through 4/28 (GMT). ex: If you have $1000 in eligible earnings, then Streamate will give you a $200 bonus (20%). 

Note: Eligible earnings excludes Video Sales, Cammodels, TopSpot adjustments, Partner Site, and Gold Club earnings, which do not count towards your bonus earnings.

No leaderboard. No limits as to how much you can earn. 😉
