Video calls are a fact of life these days. While it’s a perk to stay at home and wear jammies from the waist down, it can leave our makeup looking a little worse for wear.
Global makeup artist for Urban Decay, Steve Kassajikian, sits down with Beauty Insider for a step-by-step guide to webcam-friendly makeup.
The tips come rolling fast, such as sitting by a window for the best natural light for makeup application and video calls. No more hiding in that dark home office!
Steve focuses on technique and purpose rather than specific products, saying “you can use, cream, liquid, whatever you have around the house”. A refreshing take on the often product-saturated beauty world. “Shop your stash” rings a bell (beauty fanatics know).
If you’re a setting spray junkie, you’ll love that Steve guides us to use it during concealer and foundation application in the first step. But we won’t give away all the magic. Watch to learn how to apply your base, cheek, eye, and lip products to bring life to that color-draining screen view.
Steve’s objective is to enhance, define, and bring out natural features, not to hide the face with a mask.
