How the day will work?
On the day, the Girlfriend team will be taking registrations at each of the roadshow locations from approximately 11am to 3pm – so it pays to come along early so you don't miss out. Once registrations close, we will announce the 5 regional finalists as chosen by our panel of judges. When the roadshows wrap up, the judges will select 5 national finalists from the 25 regional finalists, who will appear in a photoshoot in the March 2013 issue of Girlfriend. The 2013 Girlfriend Model Search winner will then be selected and she will appear in the June 2013 ish of Girlfriend magazine – with her own photoshoot!
Even if modelling isn't your thing, the roadshows will be heaps of fun with tons of activities you can get involved with. There will be live entertainment, the opportunity for you to walk the catwalk in a fashion show thanks to Dr. Martens, heaps of awesome prizes to win and your chance to meet the Girlfriend team in person. It's going to be a totes cool day that we are all excited about so even if you're not going to enter, come along and support your fellow Girlfriends as they strut their stuff. Plus, buy any Rimmel London product from Farmers stores on the day and get a mini makeover.

Rimmel London Style Academy insider tips
How much makeup should I wear to the roadshow?
Keep it natural, girls! We really want to see your natural beauty shine through! If you really want to wear something, go for a lightweight foundation, a natural shade of eyeshadow, a coating of mascara and a lick of gloss.
What are some tips in applying makeup so I don't look like I am wearing any?
Always start with a clean, moisturised face, follow with your favourite Rimmel primer, and ensure you really blend your foundation into the skin. You want to make sure the foundation sits in the skin and not on top of it. Make sure you choose a shade of foundation that complements your natural skin tone and really go for a light touch. Less is more.
What colours would you suggest I wear on my eyes and lips?
In terms of colour choice for your eyes, go for neutral shades – you only want to highlight your eyes, so go for light browns, taupes and bronze tones. For the lips, just go for a really natural gloss to keep it fresh.
How should I prep my skin before getting ready?
WATER, WATER, WATER. Make sure you drink lots of water in the lead-up to the roadshow. Ensure you continue with your usual daily skincare routine – cleanse, tone and moisturise in the morning and before bed. Dont forget a light exfoliation once a week to keep the skin's surface free from old skin cells that can cause blockage of the pores.
