Here are some of the top 5 on-camera imaging mistakes you can make, but we’ll tell you how to correct them for a better on-screen presence.
Any cleavage is too much. Do a double-take in the mirror before walking out the door and check to see if your shirt or dress is too low cut.
If there’s a gap or your v-neck is too low, use a safety pin or fashion tape to make sure your clothing stays in place.
#2 Wearing the Wrong Colors
Please no red, green, beige, gold, brown, etc. Only white and light blue shirts offer the contrast you need to highlight your complexion.
Do this instead
Traditional style collars with collar stays.
Polyester blends hold their shape better.
Proper fit around the neck-not too tight or too loose.
White and light blue only.
#3 Tight Clothes
The new, fitted men’s suits look great, but be careful! These jackets can pull through the mid-section and make it look like your button is about to pop.
If you’re prone to weight fluctuation, you may want to consider buying fuller jackets or moving the buttons over on some of your slightly tighter jackets.
Dresses that are too tight do not look professional.
Pay as much attention as possible to the quality of the fabric. Choose dresses with fabrics that don’t cling to every curve.
#4 Overdone Eyeliner and Lashes
Heavy eyeliner on the bottom lid not only looks severe but can also drag your eyes down.
Going overboard with the extensions or stacking on strips can make your lids appear heavy, your eyes smaller, and create shadows around your eyes.
Go for a more wispy, natural style lash, and less, or no eyeliner under the eye.
#5 We Can’t See Your Face
Did you know there are seven universal emotions and all of them are seen on the face?
Non-verbal communication is the majority of how we communicate.
It makes sense that the audience wants to see your face and that’s hard to do when your face is covered with heavy or dark frame glasses and facial hair.
