At this point, a lot of us have become intimately aware of video calls with your job since the pandemic has pushed a huge portion of employees to work from home. Let's be real, no one is expecting you to show up on screen looking business professional for your calls. If you've been lounging in your pajamas all day while you get your work done, you'll get no judgement from us. However, you might not get the right reaction from your boss and fellow coworkers if you answer your calls looking like you just rolled out of bed before the call. While you might not actually be going anywhere for the foreseeable future, it's still a good idea to look a certain degree of presentable while virtually meeting with your fellow office peers. These are some tips you can use to look good video call ready.


Depuff your eyes.

Nothing says just woke up like puffy eyes. To help reduce the swelling in your eye area, gently place a frozen metal spoon over them for a few minutes and let the icy cool temperatures depuff the area and let you look more bright-eyed and ready to take on the day.


Use a turmeric mask.

Turmeric is a spice that has been used for centuries because of its natural properties that are great for your complexion. It contains minerals and nutrients that can help tighten, brighten, and even out your skin tone and fade dark spots over time. The longer you keep using it, the more results you're going to see!


Exfoliate your lips.

Just like the other parts of your skin, your lips can use a good exfoliation to remove dead skin cells. You can gently exfoliate with a clean toothbrush while brushing your teeth or use a lip scrub. Either way, you'll help stimulate skin to that area which will help plump them and add some natural color. Afterwards, follow up with some lip balm.



Tantouring is perfect for anyone who wants to keep having those perfectly sculpted cheekbones and dimension without the daily work. Simply put, you use self tanner to create a semi-permanent contour on your face. Apply the self tanner to the areas you would normally apply your contour and let it set depending on the instructions.


Put your hair up.

This is one of the quickest and easiest ways to look snatched without actually using makeup. A high ponytail or puff will elongate your eyes and give you a natural cat eye effect. On top of that, having your hair up can automatically make your appear more put together.



So who says you need makeup to look good?! With these steps added to your morning routine, you knows? You might even be excited to take on those video calls to show off your all-natural glam!
