For people who treasure makeup, getting the perfect mirror is of great importance. However, they are not just for women but for men as well because they need them in shaving, in the shower and the bathroom. There are so many styles of these mirrors to the point where you can choose a different one for each room in your house. Some of the makeup mirrors illuminate the view depending on the background light while others will just magnify it. When deciding on the mirror which you go home with, give consideration to your style and preference. 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. If you want the mirror to be that one thing that doesn’t miss in your bag, make sure it has foldable stands and plastic frames as well as pedestals.
You should think about the 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. Consider that even when you remain in the same environment, the season of the year, time of the day and the lighting source will affect how the view will be. 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. For those who just want to shave or comb the hair, incandescent lighting is the best due to the soft halo illumination it offers as well as the warm tone.
This is not a choice you want to make when you want to be using the mirror to do your makeup because the fact that there will be another light source in the room means that you will not be able to see the real view. For those who will be using the mirror mainly to do their makeup should choose either LED mirrors or the fluorescent kind because the view is not that far from what you will get during the day and you will also have a brighter view. 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. 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.
