1. The Right Apparel
Colorful checkered, stripes and patterns render oddly on screen. Instead, opt for bold and bright colors – ok are black, blue, tan, red, or pastels in solid colors.
Keep accessories to a minimum.
Women apply makeup (slightly bolder than you might wear day-to-day) and darker lipstick, without going overboard. Bring a hair brush just for quick fixes.
