How to Look Good on Camera, According to Tom Ford

Nail that Zoom call thanks to Mr Ford.




“In order to highlight your individual beauty, the architecture of your face should be

emphasized. We all instinctively respond to light and symmetry—these can be used to

enhance your natural features and bring out your unique beauty.” - TOM FORD


Step 1

Put your laptop up on a stack of books so the camera is slightly higher than your head. Say, about the top of your head. And then point it down into your eyes.


Step 2

Then take a tall lamp and set it next to the computer on the side of your face you feel is best. The lamp should be in line with and slightly behind the computer so the light falls nicely on your face.


Step 3

Then put a piece of white paper or a white tablecloth on the table you are sitting at but make sure it can’t be seen in the frame. It will give you a bit of fill and bounce.


Step 4

Lots of powder, et voilà!
