The best part about getting ready for video calls is that there's really no need to be as precise with your makeup. You could easily strip your routine down to the essentials and still look good in a screenshot. Sarah Lahbati's fresh, minimal glam during our Facebook live session about her wedding is the perfect example for this. So in case you need ideas for your Zoom call face, here are the exact details of her look:
Blush alone can make a huge difference to how your skin looks on camera, and Sarah could attest to that. She wore one of her go-to blushes on the live session, NARS' Orgasm, for a soft hint of pink that also adds a fine shimmer to the skin. After this, you could be tempted to skip contour and highlighter completely!

A nude lip might seem too low key for a video call, but it's that soft touch of color that actually looks the most flattering! The secret is to mix a few of your favorite shades, say a lighter nude with a more saturated pink-nude, to add more dimension to your pout. Sarah's nude lip combo of choice? Charlotte Tilbury's Matte Revolution Lipstick in Pillowtalk all over the lips as a base color plus a hint of the shade Bond Girl in the center for a soft ombré.
