Your makeup look might look on point IRL, but it also might not translate well on camera.

These days, we're all at home anyway that it's probably been too long since we last help a makeup brush. At this point, you probably no longer remember how to properly do an eyeliner wing . But now that online classes are ongoing, we finally have an excuse to go back to putting on makeup. Of course, showing up bare-faced during Zoom classes is totally okay! But it's also just as fine if you want to put on a bit of makeup before taking on a day of virtual meetings and a load of e-readings. Fair warning, though: your makeup look might look on point IRL, but it also might not translate well on camera.

Below, we list a few tips to help you keep your makeup video call-friendly:

Try rosy cheeks.

Zoom calls and video conferences may suck out the color in you and make you seem paler than you really are IRL, so dab on some blush to bring life back to your complexion.


Go with glowy skin.

Looking oily on camera isn't the best look, but adding glow to the right points on your face can enhance your appearance on-screen. The trick is to keep your T-zone oil-free while adding a bit of highlight on your high points, like the top of your cheek bones.

Don't forget mascara.

Keeping your face bare is totally okay, too! But to add something extra to your look without making it too obvious, try dabbing on a little mascara on your lashes. This simple eye makeup trick can make your eyes look more awake, too.


Lip tint is life.

Even if you don't wear base products, the right lip color can make it seem like you put in enough effort on your makeup. If a full lipstick application might seem too much for your at-home affairs, go for lip tint instead. A bare face will go unnoticed with rosy-looking lips, so try dabbing on a swish of your go-to lip tint for a touch of color on your lips.
