+Amber Mac's first tip is really a big deal! I've seen the inside of noses way too often & could never figure out how to fix it! I've got a few tips of my own to add to Amber's / +Fast Company:

1. Makeup: A bit of makeup if you never wear any helps a lot! Just powder and lip gloss (or Vaseline) goes a long way!

2. Lights in front, not in back! Having a light behind you that shows up 'in frame' tends to throw off the entire video. Move your webcam around a bit so the 40 watt bulb behind you doesn't look as bright as the sun!

3. Background: Clean up your messy bookshelf and make sure there is no dirty laundry pile behind you. How you 'set' yourself goes a long way to demonstrate your personality!
