Video Conferencing with Glasses

How to look good for your Zoom meetings without a full face make up

With the introduction of working from home, many have opted to go make-up free. This is the golden opportunity for your skin to breathe without all the layers of products and you can now sleep-in. Who’s there to notice anyway? But when it comes to the conference meeting with your bosses and clients at 10 AM, there is no escaping from having to look presentable for the cameras.

In this article, we will share some tips to make you look as good with minimal make up and how different glasses designs can switch up the impressions you want to give. 

#1 How to look as great even with minimal make up?

Skipping certain non-essential steps in your make up routine would mean saving another minute of prep time to stay in bed. But missing out on those steps may also mean missing out on that spot coverage or the additional brightening effect. What are some methods to replace those make up steps and make your skin and complexion look as perfect?

Make use of natural light for a natural glow

Sit near a window to let natural light fall on you. Alternatively, you may set up desk lamps for additional lights.

Wear bright coloured tops to add vibrancy to your complexion

Know that you have a warm or cool skin tone? Even better. Choose tops that complements your skin tone for a brightening boost!

Use camera filter applications and programmes that beautifies your skin

Virtual backgrounds, effects and filters have been all the rage for everyone working from home. Make use of beautifying filters and/or brightening effects to cover any blemishes while on camera.

#2 Adding dimensions to your look with glasses

Eyewear can be used to add dimensions to your appearance, even with minimal make up on. Wearing certain eyewear design can change and improve the way you appear on screen. Here are some eyewear picks which we think can help you make an impactful impression for your next conference call.

Waking up to sudden video conference request from your boss in the morning? Hide your swollen face behind an oversized frame as it gives an illusion of a smaller face to the other party. No time for your eyebrows and eyeliners? No worries. The glasses’ thicker rims can help draw away any unwanted attention from your bare face and tired eyes.

Accessorising with a golden pair

A golden piece, which complements well with Asian skin tone, can instantly lift up dull complexions. The sparkling gold lustre adds femininity to your appearance, especially when combined with glossy lips and highlighted cheeks.

Shine through a black-rimmed frame

The contrast of the black-rimmed glasses and your skin tone brings a shine to your eyes, allowing them to appear bigger and brighter.

Trendspotting: Two Colours to Look Out For

This season, we cast our eyes on two colours that exude an air of maturity and refined gentleness to add to our wardrobes and accessories shelves. Sage green – a colour that produces a refreshing, sophisticated matureness, and pastel lavender – which gives a feminine impression with a gentle presence. These soft colours work great with many colours and add a touch of modernity to your style.

Which do you prefer?

Feminine, silhouette tops in sage green balances the sweet image and brings out a factor of modernity. Match them with a white skirt for a quiet charm, and pair the outfit with a patterned bag to create a more distinct character for the image you want to portray. Walk this outfit out with a pair of neutral-coloured ballet pumps for a casual weekend brunch, or wedges for a simple movie date.

If the overall coordination is light-coloured, it is recommended to use dark-coloured frames to complement the whole look. If you select a delicate design and a gold-coloured metal pair of spectacles, you can create a light and elegant impression. For a more edgy look, check out the classic Boston type frame with a vintage feel. With the trendy Boston shape eyewear, you can achieve a modern finish with a soft look.

# 02 Pastel Lavender
Natural and sheer


Feminine pastel lavender is put together in a relaxed style to give off a sheer sweet impression that is not too overpowering. Layering long shirts over basic tops and pants can help to lengthen the torso. This colour works great with natural colours such as beige and white, and with that, you can put forth a unique modern style of your own.

Hexagonal shaped frames seem like they’re going to stay for a while longer, and we’re not surprised!
