2016 Root Model Search

The time is here for our second annual Root Model Search!
Last year was so fantastic, I can only imagine how great this year will be. We believe in showcasing our wonderful customers & real people rather than hiring models to represent our brand. Since day one, we have only used customers & ourselves to display our natural beauty products.

2 ways to apply:
1. INSTAGRAM • Post any photo of yourself on Instagram with the hashtag #rootprettymodel (photo must have been posted after September 1, 2015) + fill out model entry form
2. FACEBOOK • Post any photo of yourself directly to our Facebook wall with hashtag #rootprettymodel (photo must be posted between September 1 - 13) & fill out model entry form

What are we are looking for in a Root model?
There is no specific age or look required to be a Root model! If you have a passion for natural products this is the gig for you! Models chosen will be a huge representation of Root, professionalism is as absolute requirement for this role.

When selecting our Root models we are judging based on the following criteria, here are some tips!
Photo quality - the quality of photos submitted plays a huge role in selecting our models, as models will be producing their own photos - unedited photos are preferred & always keep photo background in mind (we find that you can achieve professional photos with an iPhone, we recommend using the front facing camera & have a friend take your photo for you)
Photo lighting - natural lighting is key!
Creativity - Think fun, pretty, fresh & light for photos! Having a creative eye for makeup application & being able to portray this to people is a huge factor in selecting our Root models, though being a professional makeup artist is not necessary.
Personality - a Root model will be friendly & excited to be a part of our company. Having a passion for natural products will take you far!

What does our Models & Spokesmodel do?

Our Root Spokesmodel will represent us from November 1, 2015 - October 31, 2016 by running her own Root Instagram & producing content for our blog & social media. Our Root Spokesmodel & Models will be featured on our website, social media & marketing. We may also ask our Spokesmodel to travel with us for events throughout the year & beyond.

PRIZES!
1 Spokesmodel Grand Prize:
$2,500 cash, Root Makeup for a year, plus a swag bag of great products from our sponsors!

10 Root Model Prizes:
A prize package worth $250 including Root, Vera Mona ColorSwitch, Sophi Nail Polish & other great brands.
Our Root models may also choose to run their own model Instagram with a $40 monthly Root product allowance & employee discount, as well as be featured on our website, social media & blog.
