10 beauty tips to look perfect on video calls
With the country under lockdown, the only way we can connect with our friends and colleagues is via video calls. With all of us working from home, we are constantly holding meetings and presentations online. The only way to connect with our friends, too, is through the virtual world. With our lives now revolving around video calls, we want to look our best even while we sit at home. This might be difficult to do when we spend most of the day in our pyjamas. Here are a few tips for you to look your best over the camera.
Use natural light
To get the best lighting, make sure you are facing natural light and the light source is placed behind the camera. You can also achieve this by redirecting a beam of light from a desktop lamp so that it reflects a wall before hitting your face. Do not point the lamp straight at your face as this can create a yellow cast which can be very unflattering.
Apply a filter
Many a time , you may not have the time to apply makeup before your important Zoom meeting. The widely used video calling comes to your rescue with an option of filters that when applies smoothen your face. The filters can be reached through the settings icon on your screen and checkbox the option of ‘touch up my appearance’. The filters have a smoothening effect and blur over imperfections.
Depuff your face
You might find yourself with a bloated face when you wake up. To quickly de-puff your face right before your next video call, rub some ice-cold face rollers on your face. Make sure to put your face roller in the freezer overnight so that it is ready to use the next day. Glide it on your face in an upward motion for best results.
