Admittedly as a work-at-home mom I don't take as much pride in my outward appearance as when I worked full-time in an office. It's just easier to stay in PJs most days.
But since I have committed to filming 1 vlog per week for my YouTube channel, I knew I needed to step up my game (at least on Fridays anyway). Getting camera ready used to feel like a hindrance until I realized that blow-drying my hair and putting on lipstick made me feel, shall I say, kind of "normal" and like a productive member of society, ha!
Often my clients ask me, "What the heck do I wear on camera?!" so I decided to sum up getting camera ready for an episode of GOSSip and gave 3 simple tips for looking good on camera.
3 tips on what to wear on camera:
- Wear jewel tones - Simple solid colors like teal, royal blue, maroon, mustard yellow help you stand out on camera. Patterns are distracting and black is impossible to light.
- Makeup, makeup and more makeup - Studio lights are bright and tend to wash you out, so wearing more makeup than you would on an everyday basis helps. Powder, blush, mascara, and eyeliner are non-negotiables. Throw on some lipstick to help you feel a little sassy!
- Keep jewelry minimal - Super sensitive microphones mean clanging bracelets and clunky earrings are a no-go. Simple yet fun necklaces and earrings are great.
