Freshen up your brows
The US makeup artist, better known as Lipstick Nick, suggests using a superfine-tip brow pencil to create natural, hair-like strokes rather than products which make brows look heavy.
“Don’t go heavy on your brows as it creates darkness when framing your face,” she explains.

Lighten the ‘lids
A Zoom conference call isn’t the place to experiment with your new disco eyeshadow palette, so stick to lighter shades, Faulkner says.
“When you can’t filter your zoom call, use an eyeshadow palette of neutrals to bring life back into your face and take the guesswork out of applying eyeshadow,” he adds.
Smokey Eyes are a no-go so keep your lid light, medium brown in the crease and smudge a little of a deeper brown along your lash line to make your eyes pop.

Not having a daily commute has given us a little more snooze time, but if you’ve only left five minutes before your online morning meeting, brighten up sleepy eyes with a light eyeliner. Throw out that black liner for your on-screen catch-ups and instead apply a white eyeliner to your waterline and watch how instantly more awake you look,” Faulkner suggests.

Minimise screen shine
Ultra-dewy foundations can look oily on screen, especially if you’re in poor lighting. A matte foundation or powder will reduce shine, or try a face mist. “This will help eliminate shine and make sure you look matte on camera,” Faulkner says.
