Mastering The Zoom Video Call – Look Your Best Even At Home!

Now, more than ever, millions are working at home and learning how to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic shutting down their business. As well as for safety purposes, many people are conducting online meetings utilizing Zoom – and it has been quite the change! This past year has taught us how to work and live life in a completely virtual world. So, what exactly does all of this have to do with beauty and the way you look? Everything! Despite the fact that you aren’t in your office, you should still be striving to look your absolute best during your Zoom video calls – everyone can see you!

So, how exactly do you master the Zoom video call? There are many factors that take place when it comes to looking your best, lighting, facial framing, and so much more. At Fabio Scalia Salons we take your beauty very seriously and our #1 priority is making sure you look your best all while being in a comfortable and clean environment. Contact us today for more information about our beauty packages. Let’s learn a little bit more about how to absolutely rock your Zoom video calls from now on!

Lighting Really Is Everything When It Comes To Zoom Video Calls

Whether it’s natural lighting or lighting produced from something like a ring light, it’s absolutely necessary to use lighting to your advantage during your Zoom video call. We suggest using a ring light – they are super cheap and can be found either online or in stores. They provide excellent professional lighting for a fraction of the cost, and with the right makeup and hair style, a ring light will quite literally make you look like you’re glowing and your eyes will be brighter. Natural lighting is also great if you have an open space that natural light can flow through, just be sure to recognize how much light you’re pulling in – you don’t want the natural light to drown you out. 

Lighting is actually where most people fail when it comes to Zoom video calls. Most people have what’s called a “shady face,” where most of their face is blocked out by the natural shade within your home. If you don’t have a ring light, grab your nearest lamp and set it up next to your computer – directly by your face. Sidelight and backlight are a no-go, as it will create a negative contrast. As for direct sunlight, face your window – don’t have the window behind you – this will create a silhouette that will leave you looking like a shadow.

Keep Your Background Clean During Your Zoom Video Call

Though this may seem like a no-brainer, a cluttered and messy background during your Zoom video call will really irritate some people, and in addition, it will distract you too. Make sure you declutter your background and sit somewhere that looks professional enough and mess-free. Keep things plain and simple – you want people looking at your face rather than a bunch of background “noise.”

Keep Things At Eye Level 

Do you really want people looking up your nostrils? Make sure that you are at eye level with your webcam and that it isn’t tilted up during your Zoom video call. In fact, the camera under the face is absolutely one of the most unflattering looks you can possibly have on your Zoom video call. Look at your camera directly, straight ahead. And if this doesn’t quite work out for you, stack some books under your laptop to ensure that you are maintaining eye level contact with your peers.

Remember To Simply Be Yourself On Zoom

The most beautiful look you can possibly adorn is just to simply be yourself. With the proper lighting and angles, you will look great! But, if you have a good attitude, you will glow. Remember that these are your colleagues and your bosses – they want to know your true attitude and they want to see you smiling and happy for the company that you’re a part of! No matter how beautiful or handsome you look, a sour attitude will absolutely not help you when it comes to looking your best and nailing those regular zoom video calls.
