Chapter 5: Find the Best Egirl Outfits That Attract Viewers
To be a successful cam girl, you will need to follow trends in the camming industry to understand what your audience wants to see and how to implement that into your performances. Once known as girls who were merely seeking attention on the Internet and mostly on social media, egirls have become a sensation in the webcam world where they thrive off of their popularity and, of course, earn a lot of money.
What a cam girl wears is much more than just clothes. It sends a message to your fans about who you are and what you are looking to deliver on the cam site. Think of your outfits as one of the main tools in your work which can help you achieve your goals more quickly and easily. So, if you’re looking to skyrocket your camming career, you should consider buying some egirl outfits to start building your audience!
How to Choose an Egirl Outfit
Before we get into the nitty-gritty of egirl clothes, let’s take a look at what are the characteristics of the average egirl style look like:
- Hair: Long, wavy hair, or sharp bob. Hair color tends to change very often.
- Makeup: The more quirky, the better. Usually reminds people of an anime or cosplay character.
- Tattoo: Egirls love both big and small ones, mostly on their arms.
- Accessories: Boots, hair clips, scrunchies, thigh high socks, chokers, etc.
- Outfit: Adventurous and cutesy. A blend of naughty and nice.
As a cam girl, you will have to dedicate some time to think about these things mentioned above. If you’re not into getting real tattoos, that’s perfectly fine. Many cam girls don’t have them and you can play around with faux tattoos, but deciding on your hair, makeup, accessories, and outfits is a must.
Focus on Your Audience
What type of clothes will turn your webcam appearance into a spectacle everyone will want to see? First, you will need to understand who your target audience is to be able to determine their preferences. Once you perform two or three times, you will already have a pretty good idea about what your fans prefer.
Try making your first few performances different from each other. Choose different clothes, play with a few different hairstyles and accessories, and tweak your camming personality a little differently each time. This will show you which direction your future streams should go in order to engage with the people on your channel and consistently attract new ones.
Where can you purchase your first egirl outfits? Should you start looking at local stores in your city or purchase them online? As always, there are advantages and disadvantages to both of these options. If you decide to stop by the mall, it will probably require you to spend several hours browsing and you might not even find what you are looking for. On the other hand, shopping at independent stores may help arouse some creativity and allow you to be different from the many other egirls.
When purchasing your outfits on specialized websites, you can save a lot of time and have a more extensive choice, however, keep in mind that these types of shops may be more expensive and you will probably need to spend a lot more money depending on how many outfits you choose to buy. You can choose to mix and match outfits and purchase items from many sources in order to create a unique, one-of-a-kind look.
After all, how can you expect to have a successful career on one of the best cam sites without a killer look? Your looks are crucial to your success and anything that represents you on the camming site shouldn’t be neglected.
Putting on Egirl Makeup
An egirl appearance is incomplete without makeup and not just any makeup. Egirls are not into the natural look and subdued colors - they adore experimenting with vibrant colors, whether we’re talking about their hair, nails, or makeup. When it comes to makeup, egirls will try almost every color of every product out there.
These are the most popular makeup colors among egirls:
Your choice of makeup is really up to you. Eyeliner, mascara, blush, lipstick or lip gloss, eye shadow, glitter, etc... Buy these products in different colors and test them out to see which of them can create the look you’re going for. Don’t worry if you’re not anywhere close to being a makeup artist. There are plenty of tutorial videos you will find online which not only explain technique, but also give you an idea of great color combinations and looks in general.
The most important thing you should remember when doing your makeup is that you’ll be on camera. Your webcam may accentuate wrinkles, affect your skin tone, and magnify skin flaws such as acne and scars, and your lighting will likely drown out your makeup. This means that your makeup should be applied heavier than usual, especially your foundation, in order to look flawless on camera. Making sure you put on camera-friendly makeup will have a tremendous impact on your look when you go live.
If you’re uncertain how to apply your makeup for your first cam model performance, follow our tips:
- Use warm colors and avoid cooler ones
- Don’t exaggerate with blush, glitter, or highlighters.
- Match your foundation with your skin tone.
- To avoid shiny skin, make sure you have a matte primer or blotting paper.
- Test your final look by taking a picture of yourself with the lighting in your camming space or by checking yourself out using your webcam preview.
Choosing Your Thumbnail Image
Now when you have your outfit and your makeup ready, you should create your thumbnail image. This image will represent you in the camming community and encourage people to click on your profile and check out your content. Along with the information you add to your profile, a thumbnail image should tell your viewers what they can expect to see when you start streaming.
It would be best if your thumbnail image is taken before or during one of your performances to provide insight into your cam world. Don’t just upload a photo you already have in your gallery. Your thumbnail image needs to be created especially for this occasion. So, what are the elements of a good thumbnail image?
Firstly, the image needs to have a clear focus. What is your camgirl strength? Is it your face or your body? This image will appear in a very small thumbnail so try to stick to a simple image. Secondly, you need to consider the anonymity aspect. Do you want to show your face in the thumbnail image or not? Thirdly, the image needs to be of high quality. Don’t upload a blurry image. Fourthly, make sure your outfit and makeup are perfect!
Ready to Start Creating or Streaming Your Cam Girl Videos?
After you put on one of your egirl outfits, don’t forget to make sure you’re taken care of. Not feeling good about yourself or having any type of health issues will impact your webcam success. More importantly, you will not enjoy your performances if you don’t feel good physically and emotionally.
Start exercising. Go for a jog in the morning or join a pilates class in your neighborhood. If your hobbies include reading or cooking, don’t neglect them once you start working as a camgirl. Having an active and enjoyable life will boost your self-confidence, and there is nothing sexier than a girl who feels great in her own skin!
Once you’ve accomplished that healthy balance in your life, you will notice it pay off in your work as well. A confident webcam girl will know what she wants and how to achieve it, how many hours she really needs and wants to work, and what her audience expects of her. Don’t forget, the better you treat yourself, the better others will respect you and cherish your beauty!
