How to Look Presentable in a Pinch

December 2, 2020

Whether you need to look put-together for a Zoom call or just want to improve your stay-at-home style, there are simple beauty tricks you can follow to make yourself look more put-together on a daily basis. Here are some of my favorite product-based tips that require minimal effort but impart major results:

Tip 1:  Resculpt Your Features

 SBLA Neck, Chin & Jawline Sculpting Wand XL


This magical tool contains a nightly serum and application wand in one and it helps you resculpt your most visible features (your neck, chin, and jawline) with a few quick movements. It uses a proprietary fat-burning complex to increase collagen production, minimize fine lines, and reduce age spots on your neck and décolleté. The results are immediate, but you will also see them over the course of 14-30 days. The wand lasts for 100+ days.

Tip 2: Correct & Conceal with a CC Cream

To look your best in person (or on a Zoom call) it is essential to have a clean canvas. You can prime, moisturize, blur, and build a clean-face canvas with a great CC cream. This will help fill fine lines, hydrate dry skin, and conceal any blemishes or discoloration.

Tip 3: Brighten up With Undereye Concealer

Dark undereye circles are anything but “presentable.” Color-correct them and brighten up your undereye area with a creamy concealer. Use your ring finger to dab it on carefully and focus on the inner corners of your eyes. Be gentle and never pull or tug at your skin.

Tip 4: Fake Awake with Mascara

Mascara is a MUST if you want to make your eyes look big and bright. It will instantly make your eyes pop and will help awaken your face no matter how little you slept the night before.

Tip 5: Add an Easy Pop of Color

You don’t need a 10-step routine to look presentable. Take a dab of your favorite lipstick to add a pop of color to your lips. Use a second dab and add it to the apples of your cheeks so you looked flushed and youthful in all of the right places. Color is key to brightening tired, sallow skin.

Tip 6: Build Volume with a Hair Tool

Don’t have time for a shower? No prob. Even the worst bedhead can turn into a salon-worthy blowout with the help of a great volumizing hair tool. Focus on the crown of your hair to build volume and then make the front smooth and sleek.
