How to Look Younger on Zoom – 10 Simple Tricks to Look Younger on Zoom Calls
If you want to look younger on Zoom calls you are in luck! Here are 10 tips on how to look younger on Zoom.
1. Buy a Ring Light
Seriously. A ring light works wonders. The extra light on your face will erase dark circles and hide fine wrinkles.
Want to look younger on Zoom calls? Get a ring light.
I like this 10” ring light because it has a great cell phone holder and is easy to adjust up and down.
2. Use Your Phone (and Place It High)
The cameras on most laptops aren’t great. Instead, use your iPhone for your camera.
Place your phone in your ring light and adjust the ring light so it’s close to eye level (above your laptop).
If the camera is too low you’ll have a double chin. That's why you'll see young women taking selfies with the camera held high!
3. Face a Window…Kind Of
You may have heard that you should FACE a window, but that can be hard on your eyes (and cause you to wrinkle your forehead!)
Instead, have your desk be perpendicular to the window.
This way light will still hit your face (making you look younger), but you won’t be squinting your eyes all day.
4. Look Awake with Mascara
A good mascara will make you look awake and younger. A solid lengthening and volume mascara (like the Christian Breton Eyelash Builder) will work wonders.
Apply the eyelash builder before your normal mascara and your eyes will look amazing.
5. Don't Use Fake Backgrounds
Zoom has a wide variety of FUN backgrounds to choose from, but they cut people off in funny ways sometimes.
Instead, clean up your working area and show your real home surroundings. Just don’t keep anything embarrassing lying around!
6. Wear Lip Gloss to Look Younger on Zoom Calls
Cameras can make you look washed out. Want to learn how to look younger on Zoom calls? Wear a hydrating, natural colored lip gloss.

7. Add Color to Your Cheeks
A little bit of color will make you look youthful. This is one of the easiest tips in this "how to look younger on Zoom calls" guide.
The NARS Blush in Orgasm looks flattering on almost anyone.
8. Hide Under Eye Circles
Dark circles under the eyes will age you! Pop on a quick under eye concealer to take off 10 years.
I love the Maybelline Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Concealer in Fair 110.
9. Don’t Get Too Close to the Camera
Show your chest, arms, hands, and face in the camera frame. Getting too close is unflattering!
Plus, studies show that people seem more trustworthy if others can see your hands.
10. Wear a Flattering Color
Want to look younger on Zoom calls? Get a new wardrobe.
The right color clothing can make your skin glow and look youthful.
Flattering colors for blondes include light pink, white, and baby blue.
Brunettes look great in rich colors like black, navy, and red.
