Vlogging would mean hours and hours of screen or video time and as a vlogger, you want to look your best. Here are tips so you could look slimmer and better.

Adjust your camera level

You don’t want your camera too low because it may not look too flattering. If your desk is took low, try to place a couple of books underneath so that the webcam is right above your eye level.

Play with the angles and the zoom levels

You don’t want to zoom in too close otherwise you will end up with your entire head occupying the entire screen space. Nor you would want it too far.

Sit or stand at an angle

Directly facing the camera will make you look bigger than you already are. Let your body position be at an angle with your face looking directly at the camera so you will look slimmer.

Pay attention to what you wear

Go for a monochromatic or one solid-colored outfit because this can lengthen your body. It doesn’t have to be black but best if you go on the darker side. Or go for dresses or blouses with smaller prints as they tend to be more flattering compared to outfits with bigger prints.

Vlogs are supposed to be fun and exciting so don’t be scared about not looking good enough because there are things that you can do to address this. The important thing is that you are able to convey your message well, your video is educational and that your personality shines through. Good luck!
