On-Camera audition often focuses on the actor’s upper body, and therefore the goal is to accent their facial features and highlight attractive ones (eyes, cheekbones, lips, collarbones, etc.). It is worth choosing a palette of colors that are right for you. Sometimes the camera works with colors in its own way, and therefore it is important that you do not look dull or faded. Overly printed and patterned clothing can draw attention away from your face. V-neck T-shirt or collar will be a bonus in your image.
