Interview: Model Kim Viergever (Netherlands)
Can you tell us a little about you?
My name is Kim Viergever and I am 25 years old. I work in a restaurant and also parttime as a model. And I am a tattoo, fashion and beauty lover.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I would change the way I was thinking about myself before I started modelling. I was really insecure about myself, because I got bullied. But I also learned from that experience.
How did you start modelling?
I started modelling during my internship at a vintage store and at the same time a friend of mine started her photography course. So I modelled for her as well. That’s were the passion started, but I was too insecure at first. Then I met my partner and he convinced me to do something that I was passionate about and to learn to love myself.
What do you think of the work as a model?
Every shoot is different. It depends on the genre. I shoot fashion, lingerie, hair, beauty and commercial work for example. And every genre is different. That’s what I like about it. Being chameleonic is my favorite characteristic.
What is your beauty regimen?
I start my morning with washing my face with cold water. Then I apply a glow serum and after thay I use a spf cream on my face and neck. Before sleeping I clean my face with a cleansing oil. And remove residue with micelair water. Sometimes I use cleanser and I apply a mosturizing serum with vitamin C and a cream. And top it off with a moisturizing face mist. All fragrance, paraben and preservative free products.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
Being chameleonic desitiguishes me as a model. I love to step into a personality, vibe, clothing style etc. Adapting yourself to the set and moodboard. I love to do that.
What are your plans for the future?
My plans for the future are to hopefully grow more and more as a model. I would love to do more big campaigns, work with small brands, walk the runway. So hopefully that will happen for me. Within this year I hope to also grow in Belgium since I will be moving there to move in with my partner.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
I love every positive experience so that’s everything that I post on instagram basically. I am honored that brands, stores, designers, hairdressers and everyone involved wants to work with me.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modelling?
Just go for it and follow your dreams. It sounds cringy, but if you don’t try it you will never know if you can succeed. Please do your research before starting and do not accept shoots with everyone. Think about what you want to achieve and how you can get therec and you will.
What do you think of the magazine?
The magazine is really nice. I love that it showcases a lot of talented and diverse people.
