Putting your best face forward this summer

Does your Zoom shot still need a lot of work — even after a year and a half? Let's fix it this summer — because your days in front of the camera lens aren't going away any time soon. That's part of what Executive Media Training is all about. Recently, I worked with 26 attorneys to help them relate to the camera instead of a jury; an author who has serious on—camera anxieties; and a CEO and communications director who want to sharpen their skills before some big media events. In every case, it's about the visuals first. I know it sounds superficial, but you're ON CAMERA! The whole composition of your shot and your hair, makeup and clothing matter. Then, if people feel comfortable with what they see — we can talk about what you say and HOW you say it to grab their attention.

June Tips
Bring the emotion

If you're being interviewed by the media or a podcast host - always focus on the emotion, the human element - make people care.

Keep in mind - every media outlet has the same press releases. You don't need to repeat numbers or stats - focus on the emotion and the human element. Share something that moved you - something others can relate to - that's what will get attention and make people want to hear more.

Makeup tips from longtime TV makeup artist, Ana Limonchi @analimonchi

  1. Drink plenty of water - makeup will look better when skin is hydrated.
  2. Avoid glittery or shiny tones. Matte is always best on camera.
  3. Wait 2 minutes after concealer + foundation before applying powder. Give the foundation time to settle and change tones.
  1. Hydrate skin with daily moisturizer + drink plenty of water
  2. To cover dark circles, use concealer 2 tones darker than your skin tone
  3. Use clear mascara on brows + lashes as a last step to remove excess powder + keep definition
