And how can we have fun without going overboard? We have all the answers ahead, as well as some advice from a beauty vlogging expert.

Lighting can seriously alter your appearance, especially when you’re communicating over video chat.

There is a best light to apply your makeup in, and there’s a best light to host your Skype interview in. Hint: They’re both natural!
