If you are one of those women who cannot step out of the house without makeup then you should start with getting the best mirror. These are useful mirrors for men because shaving is among their needs and they ought to be added to the bathroom and shower. Given how different the styles of the mirrors are, you do not even have to restrict yourself to one and you can vary them according to the room you are adding them to. 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. For your makeup to come out great, you need the perfect lightning but it does not remain constant when you keep changing the environment. Also, the source of light, time and season of the year will have an effect on this. Even without changing your makeup, the view you will see on the mirror when you are looking at yourself on the mirror when the background is only lit by candles is not going to be the same as when you are getting the light from the sun. It will be better if you do your makeup in natural lighting. 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.
If you are doing your makeup, and an incandescent mirror is not the best because the second light in the room will bring alterations to your appearance. 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. In addition, LED and fluorescent bulbs are energy efficient with the former lasting a lifetime while the latter can be used for about 3 years. If you are willing to go deep in your search for the perfect makeup mirror, you can be graced by one that allows you to simulate different setting with light adjustments.
