If you want consistently good results in your photographs - HIRE A MAKEUP ARTIST!
Models: Don't kid yourself into thinking that you can do a great job on your own hair and makeup. If you are shooting your portfolio - you should be concentrating on the modeling, NOT hair and makeup.
Photographers: If you want to do professional caliber work and be consistent - you will need to find a makeup artist and establish a working relationship. Great images are the result of a collaboration between the photographer, makeup artist and model.

Remember... if you are serious about modeling you are considering starting a business. The "business" - is the business of marketing yourself for use in advertising. You are going to invest TIME and MONEY to make this happen. With any business, if you want to be successful be sure to do your research first.
