How to create the perfect make-up for Zoom calls

Whether it’s a pow-wow with your boss, a virtual date or a catch-up with your besties, Revlon has everything you need to get that video-call glow

Prime time

The secret to a flawless-looking complexion is a great primer – especially when it feels like every pore is being magnified on screen! The Revlon Photoready Rose Glow Hydrating + Illuminating Primer in Rose Quartz, has a super-light, water-based formula infused with hydrating oil beads to help skin feel moisturised all day long, while pearlescent quartz gives your complexion an instant luminous glow. It’s perfect as a base to help your foundation stay put – a must if you’re on back-to-back conference calls – but if you’re already having a good skin day, you can wear it on its own.

HD lashes

To help make your eyes look bigger, more open and alert – essential for that 9am call with your boss – it’s all about applying lashings of mascara. Meet the clever Revlon Volume + Length Magnified Mascara. It has a square brush, which deposits product at the base of your lashes to make them look fuller, then combs through the high-shine fibre formula, which clings to each lash to lengthen them.

To give skin some summer shimmer, or if your home lighting is making your complexion look a bit flat and dull on screen, you need a highlighter in your life – and the Revlon SkinLights Prismatic Highlighter in Daybreak Glitter is where it’s at. It creates an amazing glowing-from-within effect without making you look like you’re covered in glitter. Sweep it over the high points of your face, such as cheekbones, the length of your nose, just above your Cupid’s bow and across your chin.

Bold brows

Adding definition and colour to your eyebrows will make them look more groomed on video. It’s also great for glasses-wearers: your brows may be the only part of the eye your co-callers can see, so it’s definitely worth giving them a little TLC. The Revlon Colorstay Brow Pencil has a handy spoolie brush at one end, which you use to shape brows and make sure all the hairs are going in the same direction, before filling in any gaps and adding length with the angled pencil.

Talk with your hands

You may find you’re using gestures to convey emotions on screen, which means your nails are more on show than ever. So, if you’re WFH with a bit more time on your hands (pun intended), why not treat yourself to a salon-quality mani in the comfort of your home? Once you’ve shaped your nails, apply Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Nail Polish in Hold ‘Em – a gorgeous, mushroom-taupe shade, which handily has a base coat built into the formula. Finish with a slick of Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat to maximise shine and keep chips at bay.
