Working from home doesn’t mean you show up to Zoom meetings looking miserable. Since this will be our new normal for a while, we need to align accordingly. Video calls are unavoidable; you need to find a flattering camera angle and make the right use of natural lighting to look like a million bucks. And since he’ll be sitting close to the camera, you want to make sure you’re putting his best side forward as well.
We’ve put together a 10-minute guide to help you look fresh and lively on camera:
1. ESTABLISH AN EVEN SKIN TONE
When we are in the world of digital high definition, the spots and imperfections of the face become clearly visible on the screen. Even a small blemish on the face can stand out. If you are too self-conscious about these spots and blemishes, you could ruin your interaction with others. To avoid this, use a light foundation or BB cream to even out your tone.
2 EYELINER BEFORE A CALL
An eyeliner can instantly brighten your face. It makes the eyes stand out, draws attention away from problem areas and makes you look more vibrant and bright. If you adjust the natural light to fall on your face, you don’t need any other product except a little eyeliner and mascara to instantly show off.
3 NATURAL DYES FOR MORE VOLUME LIPS
Everyone is in love with lip tints these days. They make your lips look naturally richer and smoother. It is minimal, translucent and enhances the glow of your face. Choose a shade that matches your natural undertone.
4. ELEGANT AND SOFT BRAIDS
The current hair trend is to leave the hair open and loose; an elegant and smooth texture adds to the beauty. If you have an oily scalp, use a dry shampoo to correct it. Dry shampoo can help you tame your tresses in a few minutes. Apply a bit of leave-in conditioner for that extra shine.
5. ADD SOME MAGIC TO YOUR EYES
It takes no more than a few minutes to add a little color to your eyes. During video calls, the camera is usually at eye level. This means that your eyes will be in focus most of the time. So adding some nude eyeshadow can instantly make your eyes look bigger and brighter. The shades that work for almost all of us are nudes, browns, and soft pinks. Even if it doesn’t bring out any other features except the eyes, it will still look beautiful.
6. MIST FOR THE FACE TO FEEL AND LOOK FRESH THROUGHOUT THE DAY
Back-to-back video calls and meetings can be boring and depressing. And when it comes to your makeup, it will start to wear off at the end of the first call. To help revive your fresh look, we suggest spritzing on some fresh face mists. This is a wonderful product that refreshes your mood and gives you life. Look for fragrances like citrus, aqua, or aloe.
