If you are a girl who loves makeup then you know how important getting the right mirror is. However, they are not just for women but for men as well because they need them in shaving, in the shower and the bathroom. The producers have so many designs of the mirrors such that clients can decide to have one style for every room in their homes. Some of them will just magnify the view whiles others will just illuminate the view when the light is different. When it comes to selecting a makeup mirror, you should be guided by your preference and style. You will find many with metallic frames which are stand-alone thus made with a heavy base. Among the finishes you can get for makeup mirrors are polished chrome, brushed nickel, black matte and oiled bronze. For those who want to take the mirror with them everywhere they go, it is wise to choose those with plastic pedestals, frames, and foldable stands.
You cannot forget the importance of lighting too. You should have perfect lightning when applying your makeup so that you get it right but you should know that it will depend on the environment you are in. Besides the environment, expect to get different results depending on the lighting source, time, and even season. The way the makeup will appear during the day will be different from how you see your reflection when only candles are lightning the background. The natural sources of light are preferred when you are doing your makeup. If your needs stop at combing your hair and shaving, you should feel free to go for incandescent lighting because of it’s warm tone and even soft halo illumination.
However, an incandescent mirror is not the right choice for you when you are doing makeup because it means there will be another light source in the rooms which makes your appearance look different. In case of makeup, you want a LED or fluorescent mirror because it will give you the view close to what you will get during the day and even make the image bright. Besides paying low energy bills with fluorescent and LED bulbs, you will also forget about buying more bulbs for the rest of your life when you buy LED bulbs and in case of fluorescent, you can be making replacements every 3 years or more. There are advanced models now too which offer light settings to help your simulate evening, daylight and also interior locations.
