Kube Studios Review

Kube Studios Review

Kube Studios review performance and service continually and our teams are constantly improving their skills and talents. We encourage each team member to fulfill the role they are most adept at which in turn maximises the quality of service we can provide to you, the paying customer. At this time of year we've noticed that we're really piling the make up on as the skin dries out so quickly in the cold and we need to cover it up! In this post our in-house make up artists from Kube Studios London offer some tips for self-employed make up artists that will help you maintain better relationships with your clients.

Nadine: "Never arrive late. Loads of people rely on makeup artists to finish their job before the show can begin. It doesn't matter if it is for a wedding or a fashion modelling shoot, a makeup artist should never be late to work. Arriving late on the job appears unprofessional and can quickly ruin your relationship with the client. Instead, make sure that you arrive on time and be prepared for anything that might happen."

Tara: "Don’t have a catty attitude. Your attitude makes a big difference in the beauty industry and no one wants to work with a rude makeup artist, even if he or she has taken makeup classes at the best school in the world. If you are working on a modelling audition or on a set then the atmosphere will likely be tense and busy. The last thing people need is for the make up artist to appear unhelpful and grumpy so leave your attitude at the door and be friendly, kind, and professional at all times. This is a quick relationship killer and can ruin your success as a self employed makeup artist."

Kube Studios Beauty Tips

How to get Rid of Eye Bags

Aging is an inevitable, and depressing, part of life. As we age, the bags underneath our eyes generally become more noticeable. Eye bags are not only for old people though and many young adults and even teens can experience dark circles and puffy eye bags. Photographers such as Kube Studios can use graphic manipulation tools or even simple make up to remove their appearance, but the best way is to learn how to get rid of them completely.

When you wake up, putting cucumber slices or cold teaspoons over your eyes can dramatically reduce the appearance of eye bags. Also, try lukewarm teabags from your morning brews. Just hold them on for a few minutes and you'll notice a difference.

Staying hydrated and watching your diet in terms of caffeine and sodium are very effective. Despite popular belief, these encourage the retention of water which can lead to puffiness.  Multivitamins, fruit and veg will help hugely. Avoid alcohol, even mild alcohol poisoning from a big night out will have lasting effects on your complexion.

Avoid stressful situations where possible. Go shopping at off-peak times, create a nice environment in your home. Stress shows on the face very quickly, be it with wrinkles or eye bags. Sleep enough, regularly, and preferably at the same time each night. This helps your biorhythms stabilise and has loads of health benefits, both mental and physical.

Kube Studios: Dry hands a problem?

Kube Studios Tips for Dry Hands

Kube Studios
Kube Studios
Kube Studios are a leading UK modelling agency with offices in Birmingham, Manchester and London's West End. Only a stone's throw from Oxford Street, Kube's flagship studio has the best equipment and a great team with high end modelling experience.

As the days are getting shorter and the air is getting colder, many of us have the problem of dry skin on our hands. Our cuticles split and our skin feels delicate. Here are some tips that might help you this winter.

After using a scrub to get rid of the dead skin you can rub cuticle oil into your nails and cuticles followed by a rich moisturiser. For added effect, if you put the bottle of oil into a mug of hot water for 10-20 seconds, the solution is more liquid and is better absorbed by your nails. 

Use a handcream with a low SPF in it, anything around 10-15. This adds a little protection from drying out and will reduce skin aging. Reapply every time after washing your hands thoroughly, a rinse won't remove the cream but a scrub will and they'll be vulnerable to drying once more.

If you have very dry skin it might be beneficial to use a hand mask at night to help the skin repair. Applying regular hand cream and wearing cotton gloves before sleep can have a similar effect if you don't have a hand mask at home.

Kube Studios: Toe and Heel Height

Kube Studios on Heels

We are a leading studio and agency with over 30 staff working with industry decision makers to get our models the best modelling jobs. Here at Kube Studios we overhear conversations about heels every day and thought we should cover some facts about what makes them comfortable, or not.

When you’re on set and wearing the same pair of heels for hours, it’s important to have the pair that’s right for you and your foot type. It goes without saying really, but they have to fit. Having one size too big or too small just doesn’t work when it comes to heels in modelling

Kube Studios
Kube Studios

Tight fitting toe boxes can cause the tissue around a nerve between the third and fourth toes to thicken leading to pain and numbness and also even cause bone to grow around the big toe joint. This forces the big toe in the way making bunions.

The higher the heel is the more pressure there is on the front of the foot. This can cause pain and pushes your centre of gravity forwards. In the long term this can lead to alignment problems in the hips and spine. The altered positioning of body weight also puts additional force on the inner knee, causing long term problems.

Kube Studios Male Modelling Fitness

Male Modelling Workout

Here is a workout endorsed by Kube Studios especially for male models who want to look toned and healthy. This workout isn’t your everyday fitness workout that calls for 30 minutes on the treadmill and 10 reps on the bench press, this workout is designed for the guys who want a body like an world class fashion model.
Kube Studios

This workout guide not only covers what kind of training to do in the gym, but also gives diet suggestions and supplementation tips to help increase the effectiveness of the entire fitness model program.

The Abercrombie workout takes advantage of cutting edge research in fitness training, diet, and supplementation to deliver the best possible results in the shortest amount of time. The workout itself utilizes a combination of specialized workout routines and proper nutrition guidelines that lead to extremely high of  levels of hypertrophy and overall growth, while at the same time burning extra body fat. Due to high level of specialization the Abercrombie workout is extremely effective in building the same physique as the fitness models you see every day.

The problem with the majority of fitness routines is that they’re designed for either out of shape individuals who are trying to lose a few pounds or for the high school football player trying to put on as much size and strength as possible. You need to be strong to look strong. No one wants to put on 10 pounds of muscle if it comes along with 10 pounds of fat. Why, because all that muscle will be hidden and it will just make the individual even more out of shape. 

The key to building a physique that catches the attention of everyone at the beach is building solid level of muscle and then burning off the fat that covers it. In addition to this, the muscle has to be built in the right places. so the key to an appealing physique is not only size but also muscle symmetry. the first part of the Abercrombie workout focuses on losing body fat. You should be at 10% body fat before considering moving on to phase 2 which is muscle mass. 

During part 1 of the Abercrombie workout is not to build muscle. But instead to focus on increasing muscle tone without increasing the actual size of your muscles. If you are interested in male modelling or fitness modelling don’t give up, it can be a great career. Talk to Kube Studios today!

Kube Studios Modelling Advice

Kube Studios Modelling Advice

The world of modelling is extremely varied. You don't have to be a hunk or a stick thin, 5 ft 9" girl, to become a model by any means. There are many marketing campaigns that require all sorts of people to model for their products or services.

There is a big market that requires, babies, kids, your pets, male, females of all ages, of all shapes and sizes and different races and backgrounds. You don't need to be that young either. Many models have started their careers after  they reach 30, 40 and even at 60 and have enjoyed great success. You could be one of them.

You may have noticed how all toy ads have kid's models and models who can pose as parents, medical drug ads usually feature older models and many cosmetic companies prefer the, girl next door, look in their ad campaigns. In comparison, many models in catalogues are varied and have natural looks as compared to runway models.

At Kube Studios we bring the best photographers, make up artists and stylists together to get your photoshoot just right. Kube Studios is not a modelling agency. We provide expert photography services at affordable prices to the general public, without having to be signed to an agency!

Why Buy A Photo From Kube Studios?

Kube Studios Review

Kube Studios are known nationally for taking great modelling photos. They are not a modelling agency but a photography studio. There are many reasons to purchase a photograph, as a model. Here are some of the top reasons.

Independence for Models

Many models have hardly any photographs they own the copyright to. This means they do not have their best photos to show when applying for modelling jobs. Many professional models even rely on their friends to photograph them for these kinds of photos as their modelling agency has the exclusive rights to them. Having a modelling portfolio that is up to date and reflects your modelling skills is essential to make sure you can attract modelling jobs from as many different clients as possible, not just one's booked through your agency. Websites like Models Mayhem can help you do that. Visit Kube Studios for more information.

Expertise When You Need It

For an aspiring model, having the best photos requires the best team around you to generate them. Kube Studios has the best makeup artists, consultants and stylists in the UK. Together they can help you achieve the look you want. No longer do you have to get signed to an agency to work with top modelling professionals, Kube Studios puts them at your fingertips. Have them work for you! Find out more about Kube Studios on their blogs.


Even if you are not a model, but require a photo of you and a partner or even a family photo you will get the same expertise and attention as our other clients. You only have one family, so make sure you capture them at their best! Our photo shoots can also be used by actors, business people and entertainers for their own needs. Follow Kube Studios on Twitter now to keep up-to-date on all their news.

Inspiring Male Models: David Beckham

Kube Studios

What do you do when you have the face for acting but a voice that no one can take seriously except for Posh Spice? Become a model! That is exactly what David Beckham has done and now he is just as recognisable for kicking a ball as he is for standing in his pants.

What man doesn't want to be (like) him. All those sailor tats and the perfect level of stubble at all times, get him on your campaign and he could sell snow to Eskimos. Here we pay tribute to David Beckham, Brand Beckham, a man's man, family man, great man. When he makes a million he says something like, 'Darling, put it with the rest!'

David has made so much money from endorsements the past year Victoria is sure a crack a smile any day now. I remember those smiling selfies she took a while back proving she was human - creepy! So without further ado, let's check out David's latest modelling photo shoot for H&M getting slightly more and more dressed in every photo.
