25 Items I'm Buying to Look Better on Video Conference Calls

Most Wanted is a weekly series in which one Who What Wear team member or friend of the brand will share the top 25 fashion and beauty finds on their current wish list.

As you know, the days of crowding around a conference room table or sitting across from friends and family at a restaurant are on pause for now, and in the meantime, video communication has replaced in-person connections. I find that it's not easy to look great on a tiny computer camera, so I'm doing everything I can to look a little better (with minimal effort, of course).

While I have no intention of wearing real shoes, pants that aren't stretchy or red lipstick for these calls, I'm eager to add some fashion and beauty items to my life that will make me look more "videogenic." Keep scrolling to shop them along with me for your future Zoom (or whatever your video medium of choice may be) happy hours, work meetings, birthday celebrations, and so on.

Fashion

I'm not in the market for any wild statement earrings, but a simple, chic pair that's noticeable on screen is on my shopping list.

An oversize blazer is still comfortable but is a nice, polished step up from sweats.

White tees are a fail-safe thing to wear in video calls, so I think now is the time to replace some of my old ones.

I know you can't see these on a video call, but they'd make me feel happy, which is something you can see.

A good reminder to your friends that you're still fun and stylish.

For looking cute while protecting your eyes from the glaring computer screen.

I don't know about you, but I'm fully leaning into pretty scrunchies these days.

The pretty color, fun sleeves, and flattering cropped fit are calling my name. (Plus, there's no time like the present to wear a cheerful color.)

While I love the big-chain necklace trend, I think something a little more subtle is a better option for an at-home video call.

Just imagine the video compliments you'll get on this baseball cap.

They can't see your entire outfit, so you might as well make your look all about the collar.

I'd love to upgrade my ear party (aka my secondary piercings) with some new studs like this beauty.

Sweats this chic are even appropriate for a video chat with your boss.

Beauty

This is my go-to serum. Whenever I put it on, my skin is instantly brighter, which is great because dull skin and a less-than-clear video picture aren't the best match.

I'm obsessed with this new sunscreen. It gives the prettiest glow that lasts all day. And yes, you should definitely still wear sunscreen while indoors.

I don't wear a lot of makeup when I'm working or lounging at home, but this pretty palette is so easy to apply and sparkles look amazing over video.

Even during this time of being stuck at home, I still don't get enough sleep. Luckily, these drops whiten my eyes instantly.

I don't love a very obvious highlight, so this Chanel one is a dream come true. It looks like your skin but better.

I don't know about you, but my hands have been looking pretty rough lately. This hardcore cream transforms them overnight.

I'm really starting to miss my frequent gel manicures, so I think it's time to take the plunge and invest in the tools to do them myself. (And who doesn't talk with their hands, even on a video call?)

To keep shine at bay, a sheer pressed powder does the trick. This one looks so natural on.

Curling my eyelashes makes me look instantly awake. This curler received rave reviews, so I'm anxious to try it myself, as my current one is worn out.

I don't love the look of full-on lipstick or shiny gloss on a video call. A tinted balm is much more my speed.

Thanks to my aforementioned lack of sleep, dark circles are a constant in my life, but I'm confident that this popular cream is the solution.

My face isn't seeing too much of the sun these days, so a swipe of bronzer is making up for that.
