There are a few principles to keep in mind when dressing for on-camera appearances that I have used over the years to guide my wardrobe decisions:
- Don't wear crazy patterns. These are distracting, especially in high definition.
- Bright colors are usually best but keep your set in mind when selecting clothing.
- Make sure the clothes fit. If they're too loose, you look bigger than you are. If they're too tight, it's unflattering.
- Don't go crazy with the accessories. Err on the small side. You don't want them to distract the viewer.
- You don't have to spend a fortune.
The Makeup & Hair
We are so fortunate to have people who help us with our makeup every day. They airbrush our makeup on our face. I have tried to do it and can't. Here are the products I use to touch up my makeup during the night.
- MAC Lipstick in Velvet Teddy
- Neutrogena Shine Control Transluscent Powder - the best drugstore buy!
- Revlon Lipgloss in Snow Pink
- Revlon ColorSay Lip Liner in Natural
- Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer Potion - I don't wear eyeshadow without starting with this first. I use it every day and panic when I don't have it. It prevents eye shadow from creasing.
I also swear by Xen-Tan for an immediate, natural glow. Tan fat really is better than pale fat.
