All the best makeup products you need for your video calls

Zooming with colleagues, clients, or even a Tinder match can sound like an easier alternative than meeting in person, but video calls have one tiny caveat: Cameras aren’t always forgiving.

Unless you have access to professional ring lights or only schedule calls during the golden hour, cameras — especially the ones on laptops — have a tendency to wash you out and make you appear twice as tired as you really are.

The amount of light in a room can also either make you look crazy shiny, or cast shadows on your face and emphasise zits you never even knew existed.

Because spending as much time prepping for a zoom call as you would going out is unnecessary, we’ve curated a list of new makeup products that will leave you looking naturally glowy and radiant, but with half the effort. You’ll fool everyone into thinking you #wokeuplikethis.

Besides, these will have plenty of mileage in your beauty regime even long after the restrictions ease. Here are the best new makeup products that will leave you looking and feeling more confident during those endless Zoom video calls.

Trust us when we say that keeping your puckers healthy and hydrated is one of the easiest way to nail a Zoom video look. Dior’s iconic Lip Glow Oil has been known for its magical ability to bring even the driest of lips back to life, with a shine and natural colour enhancement that adapts to each person to give a healthy radiance. The product is enriched with cherry oil to deliver hydration and glow all day, and comes in five stunning shades to match any look or occasion. 

Everyone needs a reliable contour palette that can enhance their best features.  Charlotte Tilbury‘s Filmstar bronzer and highlighter will add that inimitable glow to your complexion, making for an effortlessly radiant look that will stand out in your Zoom calls. The palette comes in two variations — medium/deep and fair/medium — to suit different skin tones.

Another that sets you up for success fast is Huda Beauty‘s Overachiever Concealer. The lightweight concealer comes in 20 shades with a luminous matte finish, and is designed to hide dark circles, redness and hyperpigmentation — giving the impression that you had the best sleep of your life even after you pulled an all-nighter.

Available in four colour combinations, this duo blush-highlighter palette pairs a light, shimmery shade with a deeper matte one, giving you the flexibility of using them separately or blended together. The formula is infused with black pearl powder and is long-wearing — so you can count on looking fabulous throughout that three-hour video meeting.

One of the brand’s best sellers has just gotten a reformulation to make it even better than ever for all-day use at home. Made for those who want coverage without the stuffiness and stiffness from long wear, the signature cushion now incorporates Zero-City technology that feels light on the skin, even though the product sits tightly on the surface for a flawless finish. The formulation also prevents oxidation to ensure long-lasting consistency, with plenty of breathability to give skin a matte, airbrushed look all through the day.
