How To Look Great On Camera

When most of us dress, we do so with the intention of looking great in the real world. However, sometimes we find ourselves in situations where we’re going to be on camera, whether it’s for a TV appearance or a wedding where guests will be filmed.

While tips that make you look great on camera aren’t entirely dissimilar from tips that make you look great in real life, there are a few specific things to keep in mind when you’re dressing yourself for film. Here are some tips on how you can dress so you love the way you look when you see the video footage later.

Avoid Loud Patterns and Prints

When shopping online, you might find yourself looking at a patterned dress that looks great on the site, looks great in real life, but ends up looking odd or even obnoxious on video. This is because patterns can look strange on moving film, even when they look fine in still photographs. This is why it’s a good idea to avoid loud patterns and prints.

Choose Dark and Neutral Colors

Solid colors, especially dark hues, look great on camera for a myriad of reasons. First and foremost, they help to slim us down. Secondly, the camera responds well to one uniform color. When it comes to dressing yourself to be on film, you really can’t go wrong with a little black dress. You’ll look slim and attractive.

Careful With Jewelry and Sparkles

In real life, shiny fabrics and sparkly jewelry is beautiful and eye-catching. But on camera, the way these accessories reflect light can be a bit jarring. If you want to play it safe, try wearing a matte gemstone or a string of pearls. These accessories look lovely on film without being distracting.

When it comes to makeup for the camera, matte is the name of the game. Avoid those shiny highlighters and dewy finish foundations, as on camera they just make you look greasy. Instead, pick makeup products that have a matte finish, as they look beautiful on film. Watch out for face powders labeled “high definition,” as they can show up white on camera.

If you follow these tips, you’re sure to love how you look on film when you watch the clips of yourself later. Above all else, never forget to sport a confident smile when the camera is on you.
