Looking like a beauty guru for your video chat sessions
You might not have to dress business casual while working from home, but that doesn’t mean you should get lazy with your beauty routine. Follow these easy beauty tips to look like a boss babe from home for your video chat sessions.
One of the key factors for looking your best while on a video chat lies in the lighting. Utilize natural lighting and try to set up your desk near a window where the light is coming from behind the camera. Using natural lighting while doing your makeup is also highly recommended because artificial light can be misleading when it comes to colors in makeup.
If the natural lighting isn’t an option, then face your desk lamp to bounce off a nearby wall and not directed straight at your face that can seem unflattering. Another option other than lighting is using filters.
Zoom and Teams offer a blurred background feature so you won’t have to worry if you’re in a distracting area or if your space isn’t tidy. Zoom also offers a “Virtual Background” option to upload your photo of choice. Zoom also offers filters that you can find under the video tab in “Settings” where there is a checkbox to “touch up your appearance” that applies a smoothing effect so you’re sure to look your best.
If you wake up with a puffy face in the morning, you should try cold facial rollers, this is a great way to help you wake up in the morning with a cooling massage. All you need to do is pop the facial roller in the fridge or freezer, roll on the face upwards motion to promote lymphatic drainage.
For a simple home boss babe beauty look, you don’t have to go all out with your normal beauty routine and helps you form a quicker makeup routine. Moisturizing before applying the product is key for a flawless blending of products to conceal dark spots and under eyes.
To draw attention from dark undereye circles, add a shimmering eyeshadow shade to your lids with a darker color in the crease, using a blending brush. For a fresh beauty look, you can achieve full lashes by curling your lashes before applying mascara and use a lash primer to prevent clumps.
