Work from home does not mean you show up for zoom meetings looking miserable. Since this will be our new normal for a while, we need to align ourselves accordingly. Video calls are inevitable; you need to find a flattering camera angle and make the correct use of natural lighting to look like a million dollars. And since you will be sitting close to the camera, you also need to make sure that you put forward your best face.
We have put together a 10-minute guide to help you look fresh and lively on camera:
1. SET AN EVEN SKIN TONE
When we are in the digital HD world, the spots and blemishes on your face become clearly visible on screen. Even a tiny spot on the face can stand out. If you are too conscious of these dots and spots, it might ruin your interaction with others. To prevent this, use a lightweight foundation or a BB cream to even out your tone.
2 EYELINER BEFORE A CALL
An eyeliner can instantly brighten up your face. It makes the eyes pop up, draws attention away from the problem areas, and makes you look more vibrant and brighter. If you adjust the natural light to fall on your face, you don’t need any other products except a bit of liner and mascara to instantly glam you up.
3 NATURAL TINTS FOR PLUMPER LIPS
Everyone is crushing on lip tints these days. They make your lips look naturally richer and smooth. It is minimal, translucent, and enhances the glow on your face. Pick a shade that blends in with your natural tone.
4. SLEEK AND SMOOTH TRESSES
The current hair trend is to leave the hair open and flowing; a sleek and smooth texture adds to the beauty. If you have an oily scalp, use a dry shampoo to make it right. Dry shampoo can help you tame your tresses in a few minutes. Apply some leave-in conditioner to get that extra shine.
5. ADD SOME MAGIC TO YOUR EYES
It does not take more than a few minutes to add some color to your eyes. Usually, during video calls, the camera is at eye level. This means your eyes will be in focus most of the time. So adding some nude shade of eye shadow can instantly make your eyes look bigger and brighter. The shades that work for almost all of us are nudes, browns, and mild blush pinks. Even if you don’t highlight any other features except for the eyes, you will look gorgeous.
6. FACE MISTS TO MAKE YOU FEEL AND LOOK FRESH ALL DAY LONG
Back-to-back video calls and meetings can be dull and depressing. And when it comes to your makeup, it will start wearing off at the end of the first call. To help you revive your fresh look, we suggest spraying some fresh face mists. This is a wonderful product that refreshes your mood and livens you up. Look for fragrances such as citrus, aqua, or aloe.
