Interview: Model Emmerald Barwise (UK)
Can you tell us a little about you?
Hey, my name is Emmerald Barwise I am a UK based Pin Up model.
I love everything vintage and quirky, most of my style is influenced by the 1940's and 1950's. I just love how elegant and classy the women were back then while still being super sexy. And I adore red lipstick!! I also love all things vintage so my style is quite an eclectic mix of different styles and eras with a 1950's twist.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I wouldn't change anything about myself as I believe you have to really love yourself before you can love others. But if I could change one thing about my life it would be to have been born in the 1930's so I would have been around 20 in the 1950's in America and I could have enjoyed everything I love first hand.
How did you start modeling?
A friend of mine suggested that I have some pictures taken with a photographer she knew and I loved the whole process so much that it really pushed me to start a career as a model! I actually only started modelling this year and I launched both my website and social media on the 1st August 2016! However its going great so far.
What do you think of the work as a model?
I love modelling I truly do, everything about the photo shoots, I love planning my outfits and getting my hair and make up perfect and then posing! Its a real art, I think a lot of people underestimate how hard it is to be a model physically as well as mentally! There is a lot that goes into doing it well!!
What is your beauty regimen?
I don't really have a specific regimen, I eat healthily and I try to drink lots of water. I try to get as much sleep as possible and look after my skin and my body from the inside.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
I'm very driven and determined, I love a challenge and I'm pushing myself every day to learn as much as I can about the industry and to become a better model x
What are your plans for the future?
I want to really push myself to be the very best I can be and hopefully my career will continue to gain in success.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
It has been a real whirlwind the past few months since my first shoot. And I have loved every second. I couldn't possibly pick any favourite experiences yet as everyone I have worked with have been amazing. But I would like to say thank you to everyone for supporting me and helping me achieve my goals!
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
GO FOR IT!! You only live once xx
