With the rise of remote working, video conferencing has become the norm. To look professional, many people are looking for ways to perfect their look on Zoom. This article will cover the basics of Zoom ready makeup, lighting and hair to look good on video calls.
Zoom Ready Makeup
Achieving a good makeup look for video calls requires slightly different techniques than a regular makeup look. To make sure you look good on camera, you need to focus on the features you want to highlight and use slightly heavier makeup than you would normally wear.
Your foundation should be slightly heavier than usual, to ensure that your skin looks even and smooth on camera. To achieve a flawless finish, use a blending sponge to apply your foundation and concealer. Make sure to blend it well, to avoid any makeup lines.
For your eyes, use a neutral eyeshadow palette and a heavier mascara. This will make sure your eyes stand out on camera, while still looking natural. To finish your look, add a light blush and a neutral lipstick.
Lighting and Hair for a Good Look
Lighting is one of the most important aspects of looking good on camera. Natural light is best, so try to position yourself in front of a window. If that’s not possible, use a lamp with a soft white light bulb.
Your hair should also be taken into consideration. If you have long hair, make sure to tie it back to avoid any distractions. If you’re going for a more polished look, use a curling iron or straightener to add some volume and texture to your hair.
Finally, make sure to adjust your camera settings. Most video conferencing apps have a “beauty mode” that can help smooth out any wrinkles or blemishes.
Getting ready for a video call doesn’t have to be complicated. With the right makeup, lighting and hair, you can look professional and put together on camera. With a few simple tweaks, you’ll be Zoom ready in no time.
