6 Makeup Tips To Help You Look Your Best

 

If you need to look presentable pronto, here are some beauty tips you can do to make sure you look alive and well over the camera (and not like you’ve been sprawled in bed for several hours).

 

1. Inject a bit of color to your lips.

Pale lips can make you look corpse-like, so use your favorite lip color to bring back some life. Opt for tinted lip balms over lip glosses—glosses can come across looking too gloopy and shiny over camera, while lipsticks might look overly matte.

 

A dab of highlighter in your inner corners can instantly help you look more awake. Apply some above your cheekbones too to give yourself an instant highlighted facelift. On camera, this will look like the sun is hitting your face in all the right places.

 

 

According to Millie Morales, a celebrity hairstylist and makeup artist for Garnier in Miami, it’s important to prep skin with a moisturizer before beginning your makeup routine. If you’re suffering from redness or an overall dull complexion, use a color-correcting cream to even out your skin tone.

 

If you had too much salt (or wine) the previous night, you might find yourself waking up with a bloated face come morning. Solution: A quick roll with some ice-cold facial rollers can quickly de-puff your face before you hop on a video chat. Make sure to pop your roller in the fridge or freezer the night before, and glide it on your face in an upward motion to give yourself a quick lymphatic drainage massage.

 

In order to make sure you’re getting the best lighting possible, make sure you’re facing a natural light source and the light is coming from behind the camera. If you don’t have that option, you can angle and redirect a desk lamp so the light is bouncing off a nearby wall. Avoid pointing the lamp straight at your face because this can cause an unflattering yellow cast.
