In this time, it’s a great idea to decide what cam equipment you need or may want to upgrade. While the members will be there for YOU, a bad webcam or lagging video feed can turn off potential tippers. It’s important to ensure you are streaming with the best possible equipment.

WEBCAM: Go for the best external webcam on the market – Logitech C920, and don’t bother with the built-in one on your laptop. The video quality will be quite poor.

LIGHTING: Lights are often not given enough attention, but they are a really important part of looking your best on cam. One tip is to do a 3-point lighting setup with some umbrella lights to illuminate you from all angles and hide any imperfections.

LAPTOP: Look for one that is high in RAM (memory) and one that has an i7 Processor, which will ensure seamless streaming and will be great for video/photo storage and editing. Asus K501UX is a great camming laptop. See this post for more.

MIC: Another great tool for any camgirl is an external mic, like the Blue Yeti mic. It will really take your camming to the next level!

This might seem like a lot of equipment to get, but not to worry, you can buy these items as the time goes on and prioritize them as you see fit.

 

What is Chaturbate’s Payout Percentage? How Much Money Can You Make?

Chaturbate pays models 50-60% of the token purchase value, which members can buy in different packages. For the model, 1 token = 5 cents no matter the token package. Chaturbate pays out twice a month, on the 15th and the last day of the month either by check, direct deposit (US only) Payoneer or Paxum.

There is also a great “Daily Pay” option for US camgirls, where you can get your money earned sent you daily, for a fee. This is a GREAT option for anyone needing the money asap.

How much money you make will depend on how much you put into it, but there are a ton of girls camming on CB full-time and making great income.

 

How To Succeed on Chaturbate

Unlike Myfreecams, Chaturbate is a more sexual site, where it’ll be more difficult to make a lot of money as a non-nude model, but it’s still possible to succeed as a tease model by dancing, playing sexual games, doing flashes for tips, etc. Cum shows will, of course, draw the most tippers and tokens, so if you’re comfortable with that, definitely give it a go! Here are some money-making tips:

Make Money in Public Chat

Set token goals and offer smaller “prizes” like flashes, to keep the guys engaged. Don’t forget to move around, touch your body, and SMILE!

Make Money with Privates

Chaturbate has a private function, where you can accumulate more tokens by going to a one-on-one private with a member, and this kind of show will likely be most sexual.

Make Money Selling Photos and Videos

Upload your photosets and videos on your profile, so that guys can purchase them even when you’re offline. A great idea to supplement this by signing up with Manyvids. It’s one of the most popular video selling platform for camgirls.

Use Chaturbate Bots

Chaturbate offers helpful bots to its models that can keep track of your countdowns, tips, post messages in your chat, thank your tippers automatically. It’s a really great feature, so definitely make use of it!

Be Consistent!

This is the last tip, but possibly the most important one. Consistency is key in camming, and there is no better advice than just showing up at the same time and same days on cam, even when it’s slow or you really don’t want to. It will pay off in the end, because you’re “training” your members to tune in to your stream and tip you consistently. As your consistency increases, so will your earnings.

And that’s it! Most of it will become really easy with practice and you can take it very slow in the beginning. The key is to Begin – Sign Up Now! Good luck!

Camgirl Lighting Tips – 3 Best Lights for Camming

In addition to having a great webcam, you need to remember that lighting is a REALLY important factor in looking your best on cam (and making that cash!). If you ever see a girl who’s ‘glowing’ and looking beautiful and clear, it’s likely that she is using special studio lightsNo worries, they are not that complicated and can be bought on Amazon! So, what are the best lights to use while camming? This diagram shows that you ideally need 3 lights to light yourself with, also called the “3 Point Lighting Setup”.

LIGHTING SETUP

 

I would say that 2 specialty umbrella lights (“key” light and “fill” light) and your room’s overheard light or sunlight from a window (“back” light) will be enough and will give you a GREAT advantage over someone without extra equipment. Don’t overthink it too much, just make sure you’ve got a few umbrella lights illuminating you.

Here is my Number 1 suggestion for lights to use on cam:

 

LimoStudio-Photography Photo Portrait Studio 600W Day Light Umbrella Continuous Lighting Kit

As I mentioned, the difference will be amazing! These umbrella lights showcase your features, and all the shadows that make you look old, dull and not as attractive will disappear! It’s the investment that will give you the most return for the money.

This kit includes everything seen in the photo above:

  • 2 Tall stands with bulbs & umbrellas
  • 1 Short stand with bulb
  • Umbrella carrying case
  • Bulb carrying case

 

To try something different and to give yourself a warm, sunny glow, you need a GOLD umbrella. I recommend using this one:

CowboyStudio 43in Black & Gold Photo Studio Umbrella

This umbrella can be interchanged with the white ones from the lighting kit and you can create your perfect lighting, either with using one white and one gold umbrella or even with 2 gold ones!

 

Another good option is to get this kit, which includes two white umbrellas and a gold one, so you can try out different options to see what works for you. It’s definitely the most versatile!

CowboyStudio Photo Studio Soft Reflective Umbrella Continuous Triple Lighting Kits, 600 Watt Output Kit

A very popular choice for camgirls are softboxes! They create beautifully diffused light and are used by professional photographers, so you know they’ll be great for cam.

My recommendation is this set by Limo Studio:

LimoStudio 700W Photography Softbox Light Lighting Kit Photo Equipment Soft Studio Light Softbox 24″X24

Play around with them and you will not regret this purchase. Along with a good webcam, lighting will make or break your camming, and good lighting will help you get started on the right foot! Good luck!

 

Camming Security and Privacy Tips

camming privacy tips
 
Being a camgirl is job full of privacy concerns, and being able to handle them is what’ll make you successful in the long-term. Read on below for some security tips to keep in mind while camming!

 

CAMMING PRIVACY TIPS

Geoblocking

Most cam sites, including Myfreecams and Chaturbate with allow you to geoblock your location,  so you can be sure that your neighbor or that high school friend won’t be watching you. You can block anything from a state or province to a whole country! Unfortunately, some people can still get around the geoblock by having VPNs that change their IPs to look like they’re located in another country, which can give them access to your room.

Camming with Another Girl Precaution

If you decide to cam with another girl from out of state or country, be mindful of her geoblocks. She may have completely different locations blocked and is very likely to have your location unblocked leaving you visible to members from your state/province. Discuss this ahead of time and make sure you are on the same page regarding what you should do. Unless she has very high tippers in your location, I would suggest she block it for your visit to protect your privacy.

Removing Content/DMCA Takedowns

To further protect your safety and to make sure your recorded cam shows are not spread on the internet and visible to everyone, using a service like CamModelProtection can help you take down the stolen content and do DMCA takedowns on your behalf, automatically. There is no need to scour the internet to look for your screencaps and stolen videos, they provide this support in their package (Check out their free trial here). Remember to never file DMCAs yourself, because the forms require your real name and contact information, and you don’t want this information to be visible to the owners of those sites.

Be Careful about the Information you Share

Sometimes it’s really easy to slip up about where you live by mentioning a particular event you will be attending that is specific to your location, or maybe a restaurant that you loved, which can be easily googleable. Even quick views from your window can give things away if a member is familiar with the area. Be mindful of any items in your house that may have your name on it, like notebooks, picture frames, or even a Starbucks cup with your name written!

Don’t Open any Suspicious Links from Members

Any unfamiliar link that is sent in your chatroom, Twitter, or to your email can lead you to download a virus to your computer. With some links members can also find out your IP address and your exact location, so don’t open anything that looks off. Be especially cautious about any link-shortening URLs, like bit.ly.

 

SOCIAL MEDIA PRIVACY TIPS

Lock Down your Twitter and/or Instagram

First things first, make your Twitter and, if you use it, Instagram private and only accept people who are regulars in your chat. This way you not only prohibit people who live in your state/province from seeing you, but you also stop any images of you from being retweeted and spread on the internet. This will decrease your exposure in a big way, but of course also make it quite hard to market yourself online.

Use a Separate Email for Camming

This is a big one. Never use your personal email to sign up with cam sites,  Amazon wishlist, or any social media accounts. Keep business and personal life separate. This will also prevent any issues with apps sharing your details with your full contact list.

Turn Off Location Information on Photos you Post Online

Be very careful about inadvertently sharing your exact location through the photos you post online. If you have an iPhone, go to to Settings > Privacy > Location Services > Camera, and then select “Never” as the option, so that your phone will not store this info. Turn off your location on any social media that you use as well, so that no one will know where you’re posting from.

 

PHYSICAL SAFETY TIPS

Don’t Show your Address on Amazon Wishlist

When you go to make your wishlist, make sure you select the setting to hide/deselect your ship-to address from anyone looking through your list. This will mean that you might have to only accept giftcards or get a PO Box in another city, but it’s a great way to protect your exact location and not have someone showing up at your door! (This situation has happened).

Sending Mail and Gifts to Members

Girls who do raffles with physical prizes, like cookies or printed photos, need to be mindful of the fact that even when you don’t put your return address on the package, your city and post office address will still be visible on the mailing label. What you can do is either mail your packages from another city or only do digital prizes, like photosets and videos.

Meeting up in Person

While some girls are ok with meeting members, especially as raffle prizes, it can be a risky thing to do. There are many stories of camgirls being stalked, and by meeting up members in real life, you just open up that possibility even further. If you do decide to meet a member in person, always make your boundaries clear ahead of time, have someone around you, or at the very least, tell someone you trust about when and where you’re going. Not to say that every member you meet will turn out to be a stalker or cross boundaries, but it’s better to be safe than sorry!

Non-Nude Camming: How to Succeed as a Non-Nude Cam Model!

non nude camming mfc

 

Non-nude camgirl might seem like an oxymoron, because how can you make money without taking your clothes off or doing anything sexual on a camsite? The fact is, it is possible and can be VERY profitable if you find yourself on the right type of site and have the right approach. Here is how to make it work:

Your Choice of Cam Site is Important

Some sites are inherently better suited for non-nude camming. Before I go on, I want to split this term into two types: The Domme approach and the Girl-Next-Door approach. The “girl next door” angle works really well on Myfreecams where you are not necessarily expected to do a cum show or come online with a bunch of toys, contraptions and overly sexual lingerie, versus a site like Chaturbate that is more sexual and show-oriented. It also allows couples, which is one of its main draws, and hence will always be more sexual than MFC. MFC has a more relaxed, hangout atmosphere which some girls create in their room. There are of course plenty of sexual things going on as well, but MFC is your best bet out of all the camsites.

 

To be a Domme you need a certain personality and attitude. That, along with a bit of research, will get you accustomed to what submissive men desire from you online. There is a HUGE variety of things you can offer as a domme without taking your clothes off – JOI, CEI, Findom, Humiliation, Blackmail, etc. There is no camsite currently that is optimized for dommes, and while you can still log on MFC (there are a few very successful dommes like AstroDomina), the majority prefer to use social media and sell videos on either their own sites or sites like ManyVids and Customs4U. Another option is phone sex, with a site like NiteFlirt.

I will focus on what it takes to succeed on cam being non-nude and non-sexual or explicit, so tapping into that girl-next-door fantasy a lot of guys have.

Things to Do as a Non-Nude Model

❀ Establish a friendly atmosphere with the members watching you. How you do it is up to you, but try to showcase your personality versus your body (as obvious as that sounds), ban anyone who derails the conversation into a more sexual one or posts sexual gifs, and don’t forget to smile! A smile is the best ice breaker on cam. If it looks like you’re enjoying yourself, the tips will follow.

❀ Play games! Games are HUGE! Get a dry erase spinwheel and put it to good use. Play card games, Hangman, or even Battleship. Create your own to suit your personality. There are so many possibilities.

❀ Since you can’t do countdowns for clothes off or for cumshows, have countdowns for silly things like putting more clothes on or some sort of elaborate exercise routine, or hula hooping, or baking cookies! You need to give guys something to tip for, anything at all.

❀ Hold raffles and contests throughout the month. Raffles are a great way to make the guys excited and competitive, which translates into more tips for you for minimal work.

❀ To further solidify that member connection, send handmade presents/prizes in the mail, like custom drawings, if you’re artistic, custom polaroid pics, homemade treats or any other gift that you’ve put together yourself.

❀ Don’t forget about Skype! Even though lots of girls warn against Skype, that’s because there is a high chance of guys scamming you, DO hold special Skype hangout sessions with your best regulars. It seems to be the number one requested “prize”, since it gives them that exclusive one-on-one time with you.

❀ Keeping in touch with members outside of cam is important. Keep an active twitter, perhaps a personal blog, and snapchat your day-to-day happenings, which don’t need to be sexy at all!

Best Makeup for Camming

camming makeup tips

 

Looking your best translates to feeling your best on cam, and your viewers will pick up on your confident vibe resulting in more tips! Yes, sometimes the ‘I just rolled out of bed’ look works, but for a lot of us, we need some help by way of makeup!

Bright lights and moving around for hours can wreak havoc on your makeup making it literally slide off the face. You need something long-lasting ad with a fuller coverage, as you’ll notice that lights can wash you out making you look dull and not as fresh. Here are the camgirl tried-and-tested makeup products for looking your best on cam.

 

PRIMER

To make your makeup stay put all day, the first step is to use a primer. It really does give you a great base for the rest of your makeup. Some fantastic primers are silicone-based that feel like heaven on your skin, and there are others that are more mattifying or, on the other hand, give more moisture and glow. I would suggest going for a natural to mattifying effect, because you don’t want to look like a shining ball of light on cam. I recommend the Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer and the MAKE UP FOR EVER Step 1 Skin Equalizer Mattifying Primer.

FOUNDATION

Your foundation choice will depend on how much coverage you need. For those of us not born with perfect skin, going for a medium to full coverage is recommended, so that you look truly flawless on cam. My absolute go-to foundation is the MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation. It has buildable coverage that will cover all your flaws, from acne to scars, because it is specifically formulated to look best on HD television and in front of cameras and I can attest to the fact that it looks the most natural out of all foundations I’ve tried.

If you need fuller coverage because of hard-to-cover marks or acne, the best foundation to conceal it ALL is the Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation. It is truly heavy duty and can cover up tattoos with no problem and will give you a perfectly even look on cam! While I think it can look too ‘flat’ and too full coverage for everyday life, on cam it will look just fine.

If you don’t have any skin problems, you can get away with pretty much any foundation as long as it’s not too dewy or shimmery, as that effect can get magnified on cam and make your face look oily.

 

CONCEALER

Once you’ve got your base, it’s time to conceal any imperfections like dark undereye circles or pimples. I recommend going for a heavy duty concealer, one that will stay on your face and not disappear or start to crease within a few hours. I recommend the MAKE UP FOR EVER Full Cover Concealer, and as its name suggests, it will cover *everything* and you won’t have to worry about any flaws being visible on cam. You can also use it on your body to cover up any scarring, bruising or pimples (sometimes they crop up in the worst places!). Another great choice is the Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer. It stays 100% true to its name and is amazing at covering up any skin issues and looking very natural. You only need the tiniest amount of product to use, as it’s very highly pigmented.

HIGHLIGHTER, BRONZER, and BLUSH

To give your face dimension and get that flawless look, you need to do some contouring – a little highlighter, bronzer and blush will do the trick. Define your cheekbones with a bronzer and give your cheeks, forehead and chin a rosy glow with a blush. I recommend the NARS Laguna/Orgasm Duo, which is two of these products in one and is an iconic classic. Don’t be shy with your blush application, because even though it might look like you’re putting on way too much, it won’t show up as strongly on cam. Sweep some highlighter on your cheekbones, but don’t go too heavy, as the camera will pick up too much of the shine and make you look too shiny versus dewy and natural. I recommend the beautiful Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop for that perfect glow.

EYESHADOWS, EYELINERS, and MASCARA

Go for some bright and eye-catching colors when choosing your eyeshadows to accentuate your eyes and make you look more pretty and fresh overall. Don’t forget an eyeshadow primer to ensure the shadow stays put even after hours of camming. I recommend the Urban Decay Primer Potion, as it really locks in the color and will make your eyeshadow that much more longlasting.

Eyeliner is key to that cat eye look and will make you feel that much sexier. Go for waterproof liquid types versus pencils, like the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner, and finish off with a black mascara to really visually open up your eyes. I love the Benefit Roller Lash Mascara.

EYEBROWS AND FALSE LASHES

Eyebrows, while not that important to be meticulously done, do give you a much more polished look and bring out your eyes. Go for the classic Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade and lock it in place with the Benefit Gimme Brow Gel. One optional, but striking, finishing touch is to put on some false eyelashes. If you don’t have long black lashes naturally, you can fix it with some falsies that will give incredible length and volume to your lashes and make you look gorgeous. They’re reusable and not too pricey!

LIPSTICKS

Liquid lipsticks rule for camming due to their long lasting nature. Drinking, eating, or.. ahem.. doing a bj show won’t leave marks or flake off. My all-time favorites are the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick, Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick and the Lime Crime Velvetines. They all come in some beautiful shades, ranging from nude, mauve, to red, that looks fantastic and sexy on anyone’s lips.

POWDER AND FINISHING SPRAY

Dusting on some powder is the final step in the makeup application and is so crucial for camming, as it will lock all your makeup in place, reduce shine and make it last so much longer than it would otherwise. I notice that you appear more oily on camera than in real life, so the webcam picks up on any sheen you have on your face and looking oily is not a good look. I recommend the Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder. To make your makeup completely bulletproof, Urban Decay has just the tool, the All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray. Spray it on and your makeup will last through your longest cam session, even a camathon!
