The world that we live in has changed the past few months due to the ongoing pandemic. All of us have been affected in one way or another due to the lockdowns that were put in place by the governments. Most of the work all over the world has shifted online and Zoom and Microsoft Teams have become the ‘new normal’. However, we need to look at the bright side of the picture and keep ourselves occupied with our work as well as our hobbies.
Online meetings and Work-From-Home means that we now need to look presentable in front of the camera and put on makeup accordingly. This is why I have compiled some tips and tricks for you to get ready and rock your online conferences and meetings! Happy reading 😊
1. Prep your skin with some moisturizer
Even though we are advised to be at home, which means our skin isn’t exposed to sunlight or air pollutants, this doesn’t mean that our skin doesn’t need to be prepped before applying makeup. After waking up, the first thing that you need to do is to follow your normal skincare routine and apply your moisturizer and sunscreen.
2. Use Concealer instead of foundation
Since you will be using your laptop’s webcam to be a part of your work and not be there in-person, you don’t have to use very full-coverage products. Just go in with your favorite hydrating concealer to cover your under-eye area and any other areas you want to cover up. We recommend you use a beauty-sponge for this step for a very natural effect!
3. Add some Mascara for Eyes that look wide-awake
Let us all accept the fact that this whole COVID-19 situation has left us all spending some extra time watching our favorite seasons on Netflix. All of this combined with late night trips to the kitchen for some snacks mean waking up barely 15 minutes before your work meetings. In order to make your eyes look super-awake all you need to do is apply some mascara on your lashes and you are good to go! The next post we’ll cover our Liquid Shadow Eye Jewels for a more glamorous look.
Pick a Nude Lip-color for your lips
Lastly, for your lips, we recommend that you pick a very light nude lip-color every day. We have some amazing options for you at Lucky Chick!
