Technology is wonderful, especially in the face of a global pandemic and lockdown. Even while on strict lockdown, we can spend hours with friends, family and colleagues on video chat. But, it’s changed the face of getting ready. Instead of having to dress from head to toe, we’re managing to get by with a decent shirt and brushed hair. But is that really enough, considering that Zoom and video conferencing have become a clear way of life in 2020? In addition to some practical tips here, we’ll also highlight a few of our products that can help when it comes to looking good on Zoom and feeling video-ready for any online occasion or call.
PRACTICAL TIPS FOR LOOKING GREAT ON VIDEO CHATS
The Power of Good Lighting
It’s distracting and frustrating when someone is hidden in the shadows. This isn’t always caused by being in a dark room; it can also happen when you’re sitting in front of a window or a bright light. Make sure that light is always cast onto your face. Sit facing windows or well-lit areas. This doesn’t only make you visible, it’s also flattering. It gives your skin a healthier glow and illuminates your eyes on the Zoom video.
Get your Angles Right
Have a good look at how you look on the video. Are you staring up your own nostrils? Do your eyes look buggy because you’re so close to your camera? Or are you so far away that they can hardly see you, nevermind hear you? Whatever you see is what everyone else in the meeting or get-together sees. Take a few minutes to get the right angle (tip: always avoid low angles).
Look After Your Skin
With the right lighting, you can look great. But, it also highlights your skin. Make sure that it looks fresh and healthy by exfoliating and moisturising regularly. A tinted foundation or BB cream can add a healthy sun-kissed look. Powder is always a good idea to prevent an oily glow on camera.
What to Wear
Of course, this is completely up to you. However, for women, a top that shows a bit of your neck and chest without being too low allows more focus on you and what you’re saying than on your clothes. For both men and women, it’s best to avoid tight-fitting clothes that aren’t comfortable while you’re sitting down.
Be aware of your background, because the other people in the meeting certainly are. Pick a plain wall or sit against a plain set of closed curtains. This is not the time to showcase children’s art or wall tattoos, as these can become extremely distracting and lend an unprofessional feel to your setting.
