Dress For Zoom Calls

How Video Conferencing Saved My Sanity And Wardrobe

3 video-friendly outfits so you can Zoom in style.

From business meetings with colleagues to social hours with friends; video calling is the new national hobby and dressing for them is the latest trend to master. As tempting as it may be to show up with a t-shirt paired with yesterday’s sweatpants to your book club Zoom call or your first date online with that special crush, or a much-needed girls night in, this is an opportunity to dress up and unveil an outfit that you would have worn if you weren’t stuck at home.

The Gaggler is here to show you how to style and pick your looks for Zoom social hour video calls so that you always feel great and confident while looking spot-on for every stay-at-home occasion.

Keep scrolling down for all tips on which Dubai-based retailers stock and will deliver all the products you need to recreate these looks at home.

LOOK 1: Book Club

You want a look that gives a put-together vibe without putting in much effort. You also want to be comfortable and relaxed. For this look we suggest a fun slogan t-shirt paired with trending baggy jeans and cool sneakers. Yes its true, they can’t see your sneakers, but you can! Committing to the look all the way will ensure you feel fully dressed to impress. You can layer a light cardigan or a blazer to elevate the look while keeping it cool and trendy. To round off the look we suggest light and fresh makeup.

HOW TO DRESS YOUR FACE:

For a fresh face in less than five minutes follow these quick makeup and grooming steps:

  • Fill in and set your brows. Eyebrows are the frame of the face and having them well-groomed and brushed upwards will instantly give you a lift.
  • Apply some concealer to brighten up your eyes. It will immediately make you look fresh and awake!
  • Put on a good coat of mascara. This is a must to open up your eyes.
  • Wear bronzer before every video call. It brings back dimension to your face, keeping you from looking flat on a video call while adding a veil of color for a healthy glow.
  • Apply the same bronzer on the crease of your eyelids to help conceal any puffiness and even out the overall look.
  • Smooth on a cream blush on the apples of your cheeks to invigorate your complexion.
  • Add a smear of tinted lip balm that matches your natural lip color to finalize the look.

  • Bobbi Brown brow kit
  • Maybelline instant rewind concealer
  • L’Oreal paradise mascara
  • Marc Jacobs o!mega bronzer
  • E.L.F. cream blush – peachy rose
  • MAC matte lipstick – velvet teddy

LOOK 2: Date Night 

The key to success when dressing up for a first date is to wear something you feel confident in that is also comfortable. Wearing a top with some structure is a great way to show you put in the effort without overdoing it. And let’s face it, the top is pretty much what you get to see on a video call! Balance your outfit with pieces that will create a cohesive contrast such as a silk top paired with jeans. Do try to stay away from very revealing pieces as you don’t want to create a wrong impression on a first date. Keep jewelry minimal so it does not become a distraction on camera. After all you want all the attention on your conversation!

HOW TO DRESS YOUR FACE:

For a full-on glam look, try these makeup tips:

  • Go contour! Contouring enhances your bone structure and gives a camera-ready look no matter what the lighting conditions are! Just make sure to blend the product really well into the hair and jaw lines as all eyes on Zoom will be on your face.
  • Create a sultry smokey eye perfect for an occasion like this. This eye look is easy to achieve as shown in our video tutorial and explained here – apply a shimmery brown shadow on the upper part of your eye crease to add dimension and a darker shade to line your eyelid. Blend up the edges for an easy smokey effect.
  • Apply bronzer – it’s a must to avoid looking flat on your Zoom call. The key to bronzer is to apply it to the sides of your face imitating the shape of a number three for those perfectly sculpted cheekbones.
  • Wear a hint of blush and a touch of highlighter on the highest points of your face for a radiant visage.
  • Finish up the look with a nude lip colour to enhance your eye look.

Our pick:

  • MAC face & body foundation
  • Too Faced born this way concealer
  • Clinique contouring chubby stick
  • Tarte tarte in bloom eyeshadow palette
  • Maybelline New York tattoo liner gel pencil – 900
  • Nars face palette
