How To Look Polished on Zoom!

So lately, I find that even the simplest task, like taking a shower, is sometimes just too much work. I mean, what’s the point? The problem is, I do have a ton of Zoom meetings, and just thinking about them is making me feel exhausted and overwhelmed. Sadly, I still don’t have the energy today to jump in the shower, because I kinda don’t give a fuck, but I still want to look cute. Luckily I have a few tricks to look fresh as a daisy, even if you aren’t feeling it. No one will know, you are sitting in a room alone with your computer, and I promise, I won’t tell a soul!

First, Dry Shampoo is your best friend, but most people don’t know how to use it correctly. I really like Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray, and R + Co’s Death Valley Dry Shampoo. You need to spray your roots from at least 6” away. Go section by section and spray those roots. Wait, you’re not finished yet, your hair looks crazy. Now you need to use your hairdryer, my personal fave is the Dyson or the Twin Turbo 2800. Blow-dry your hair to really work the product in. Doesn’t that look better?!

Now all you need is a little bit of makeup. Curl your lashes and put on some mascara to just give your eyes a pop. Nothing wakes up your face like a fresh coat of mascara. I am really loving the Falsies Lash Lift by Maybelline, and it’s so affordable! My other go-to mascara is the Relevee Mascara by Surratt.

Swipe some creme blush across your cheeks and blend. My fave is The Multiple in Orgasm from Nars. It’s the perfect mix of pink and peach with a subtle hint of shimmer that is flattering on almost everyone.

My final step is lip gloss, but if you are feeling like you want to be bold and put on that red lip, go for it! I am a lip gloss junkie, and I always have at least 3 different shades (ok more like 5, but who’s counting) in my purse at all times. A few of my favorite brands are Beauty Counter, Surratt, Charlotte Tilbury, and Nars.

If you just follow these few simple steps, you won’t have to put that extra energy into doing a full beauty routine! And everyone in your Zoom meeting will definitely think that you’ve got your shit together!
