Wardrobe If you will be speaking on camera, wear a shirt or blouse with a collar or a jacket with a lapel, to attach a clip-on microphone. If you will be standing or walking on camera, please wear slacks or a skirt with a waistband or a belt to attach the microphone transmitter.

Clothing Colors Avoid vivid colors; bright red, green, orange and blue may distort when sent over the internet. Try softer, muted colors such as tan, gray and  light brown; or muted shades of teal, green and blue. Avoid fine checks, stripes, herringbone and similar patterns; solids are best. Also avoid very glossy, sequined or metallic clothing.

Glasses Please avoid photo-sensitive glasses. They look like sunglasses under lights.

Makeup Use very sparingly in all areas unless directed otherwise. Use powder that closely matches your skin coloring. Be cautious with blush, because normal shades may stand out garishly on video

Eyes Eyeliner and mascara are okay if used lightly. Eye shadow should be avoided, especially dark colors or vibrant blues.

Lips Use lighter color lipstick. Stay away from deep reds and high-gloss types. If you have questions about wardrobe or makeup, bring several options.
