How to Look Better In a Video Call with Clinique Makeup


How to look your best when working from home

The way we work and interact has changed significantly over the last few weeks.

With more people working from home, and all of our interactions with family and friends now being virtual, we share our tips on how to look better in video calls.

Now, more than ever, it is so important to make sure you reserve some time each day for self care, giving yourself a little confidence boost and taking care of yourself inside and out.


Do your hair as if you are going to work or meeting your friends

Video can leave our hair looking flat and limp.

Our top tip is to spray the roots of your hair with dry shampoo to create some texture and body, whether your hair is freshly washed and dried or not.

Massage the dry shampoo in and brush it out. This will give your hair instant volume, as if you have just had a blow wave.

Our pick for dry shampoo? Klorane Laboratories Dry Shampoo. It is suitable for all hair types and even comes in a formulation suitable for brunettes!

Apply your makeup as if you are going to work or meeting friends

Video calls can make us look washed out and can magnify shadows under the eyes.

In order to look your best in a video call, you need to even out your complexion and give some definition and life to your face. 

Today we will be exploring the Clinique makeup range to give you the best products to use when changing work environments at an affordable price.

Tip 1. Find the right foundation for your skin

Even out and enhance your skin with the right foundation so that it looks glowing, luminous and lovely.

You can use your fingers or a makeup brush, just don't forget to blend the foundation into your skin under your chin.

Whether you're looking for a barely-there look or prefer a heavy coverage Clinique provides a range of flawless, skin-improving foundations for instant perfection that feels like a second skin. Clinique's Foundation shades cover 99.5% of skin tones, and 100% of undertones, skin types and concerns. You're sure to find the right one for your skin.

Find your match:

Over time, Vitamins C and E help boost the skin's natural radiance and create a brighter complexion.

This full-coverage, long-wearing foundation looks and feels fresh on the skin for 24 hours and won't settle into fine lines.

It contains salicylic acid and potent peptides which retexturise and smooth the skin, while hyaluronic acid hydrates the skin so that it appears virtually poreless, revitalised and youthful.

Tip 2. Don't forget to conceal under the eyes, around the nose and any other spots

It's easy to feel a little blah at the moment, but a simple task such as concealing any dark shadows under the eyes, redness around the nose or other skin pigmentations can make us feel a bit better, and look a lot better in video calls.

We love Clinique Beyond Perfecting Super Concealer Camouflage + 24-Hour Wear

This brilliant all-round concealer is super easy to use and instantly blends into the skin. 

It offers buildable coverage to flawlessly camouflage discolourations, imperfections and dark circles.

Tip 3. Give your face a sense of health with blush

Blush will make a huge difference when you're on a screen.

It will prevent you from looking washed out on a video call and will give you a healthy glow and the look of vitality even if you're feeling stressed or overwhelmed.

Sweep the blush over the apples of your cheeks for a gorgeous and natural hint of colour. 

Tip 4. Define your Brows

We show our expression through our brows. Making brows clearly defined will not only frame your face, but will help people read and understand your emotions.

We love a brow pencil as it is easier to use to fill in the gaps with short, hair-like strokes.

Clinique Superfine Liner for Brows glides on without skipping or tugging and the colour lasts all day.

It is available in four shades and automatically self-sharpens, so you don't need to worry about sharpening when you're already pressed for time.

Tip 5. Enhance your eyes

Give your eyes some definition with a sweep of eyeshadow and a bit of eyeliner.

We love Clinique All About Shadow Duos for their flexibility. 

The light shade adds a subtle wash of colour with sparkle to the eyelids, while the darker shade can be used to add some dimension, either blended in the outer corners to create a smokey eye, or it can be used to line the lash line to make your eyes really pop.

Don't forget mascara! This is essential in defining our eyes.

Clinique mascaras will give your lashes superhero qualities, you just need to pick your preferred power. Volume, length or curl.

Tip 6. Add some colour to your lips

Lipstick is the final makeup step that will help you look more put together.

For video calls, opt for a lipstick shade that is a punchier version of your natural lip colour.

We love Clinique Dramatically Different Lipstick Shaping Lip Colour

This multi-tasking lip colour contains a pearl centre which hydrates, sculpts and contours the lip for a smoother pout and more even distribution of colour.

Dress for the occasion

Dressing the part will help put you in the right frame of mind to work from home and bring your best self to the video call.

Having a virtual wine with friends via FaceTime? Wear a gorgeous party dress to lift your spirits and make our new normal a little more enjoyable.


Set the scene

A neutral background that is uncluttered works best for maintaining your professionalism when it comes to a work-related video call. Consider designating one wall as your work wall and remove any objects or photos that may act as a distraction.

Lights and angles are your friends. Natural light behind the camera is the most flattering as both the light and the camera point towards your face.

The best angle for the camera is at your eye level. 

If you are using a laptop, place something beneath it to raise it until your eyes are at the same level as the camera lens.
