Find a personal shopper at a high end department store. They will make
suggestions for you. Look at current fashion in GQ or Vogue, and find ONE outfit you can wear to auditions that is hip,
relaxed, and trendy.
Make up: Go to a Bobbi Brown makeup counter where you can get a free makeover. Tell them you
are going on camera so they don't use make up with anything metalic.

I have enjoyed building this website
from www.register.com. It's affordable and allows you to include video and audio files.
