How to Look Good on Camera According to Tom Ford

I’ve been working on my own guide to looking better on your video calls, since after spending years as a celebrity makeup artist I have some quick and dirty tricks for looking a lot better on cam than you do in the moment. That should be up sooner rather than later! Meanwhile, the New York Times ran a short, sweet guide including tips from designer Tom Ford. The illustrations alone make it worth a peek. It won’t change your life, but it might make you smile (for the camera).

A friend also shared this video on how to look good on video calls, Zoom or Facetime. Many of the tips are universal. I also admire the way the woman who created the video allows us to see her in less than flattering lighting compared to the super flattering effect.
