Interview: Model Tara Salas (Denmark)
Interviews / Stories
Can you tell us a little about you?
My personality is based on how I love attention on the stage, in front of a camera or when I am surrounded by my friends. When I am busy, lazy or sick I really don’t care much about attention, and you might find me walking on the street, wearing lazy pants and a hoodie, enjoying that nobody recognizes me.
I don’t wear makeup, unless I am at photoshoot, shows or events. The reason of that is laziness, but also that I care to much about my skin, that I rather put on a healthy vitamin lotion than kill it with makeup. Last reason, I love the fact that everybody knows how naturally me looks like, and it feels good not to hide that from anyone.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I might like to chance my language and the way I talk when I am upset. It happens I say hurtful and mean words to the people I love, and I feel terrible about it right after. I’ll improve for sure.
How did you start modeling?
I was introduced to the model world by my good friend, Shelma Kullenberg that also is a model. She and I started our friendship in 2013, when none of us had a model career. Shelma is all her own, and is a very artistic model that I only admire. She was the one who encouraged me to believe in myself as a model. My model career started in 2015.
What do you think of the work as a model?
I absolutely love it. Working as a model is a tough industry where you got to make decisions all the time, and some of them open doors to new opportunities. Nobody will carry you through a model career, so you got to work hard to reach your goal.
What is your beauty regimen?
Everybody has even a little beauty hidden in themselves. In my opinion, beauty is 90 percent personality and 10 percent appearance. It’s true what they say; beauty comes from inside.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
My larges quality that distinguish me from others, is me as a person, that is not afraid of saying anything or do anything that I want to do. I am a straight, open-minded and grounded person, that stand up for people who’s in trouble.
Other than that, I don’t care much about reputation and others reputation. It is important to love yourself, but also to be who you are and not afraid of people might like you or not. So, better show them the best of you and don’t doubt. Everybody deserves to be treated good.
What are your plans for the future?
My main plan for the future is to improve my model skills. I have some photoshoots ahead next month in China, and I look forward to going more worldwide.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
I really enjoyed attending Miss Copenhagen 2016. It was a huge experience that I will never regret. My second favorite experience was my attending in Wella fashion show.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
Do it. You have nothing to lose and everything to win.
My advice for you is: pay a professional photographer in the beginning, so you will get a great start. The best photographers are them who is positive, creative and can see a meaning or an idea or your work.
What do you think of the magazine?
I love it. You guys make an incredible work!
