How to Choose the Right Makeup Mirror for You

Let’s face it, everyone wants to look their best whether it is for a big job interview, for date night, or even just going through your day-to-day routine. However, when you are getting ready to do your cosmetics, skincare, or even hair prep, it always starts in front of a mirror. That being said, a makeup mirror may be best for you, and finding the right one can help getting ready much more enjoyable and efficient.

With many types of makeup mirrors available, you may be wondering what to look for in a makeup mirror. This tool is an investment and at the end of the day, you would want something valuable while still being affordable. You do not want to waste your time and money on a mirror that will go to waste. Therefore, below are a few factors to keep in mind before making your final decision:

1. Budget

Before anything, it is important to consider how much money you are willing to shell out on a makeup mirror. Once you have a specific budget, then you can work around the products that are available to you when you are browsing. This way, you can ensure that you will be getting the best value for your investment.

2. Location

To narrow down your options, you need to figure out where you want to place or install your makeup mirror. There is no point in looking for a certain design that may not work in your space or under the right measurements. These mirrors are usually available in either wall-mounted or tabletop designs. You also want to consider your level of comfort. For instance, if your bathroom is too cluttered, then a wall-mounted mirror could be the perfect fit. Or if too many people use the bathroom in the morning, it may be a good idea to have a mirror in your bedroom. Ultimately, your mirror should have easy access and not be obstructed by anything.

3. Styles and Designs

Makeup mirrors come in various designs and finishes, so you will surely find something to match your taste and décor. Most makeup mirrors come in a circular or square shape. Many people prefer square-shaped mirrors because they offer a fuller coverage of your face, however circular mirrors still do the job while giving out a classy appearance.

There are various frames to consider such as metal-framed mirrors, which are heavier for increased stability and designed to stand up on a vanity or a tabletop. There are plastic frames, pedestals, and foldable stands, which are best used for traveling or for storing at home. If you are on the go, this can also be useful since they are lightweight and some models are battery-powered. Another option is a sleek, modern, vanity mirror with adjustable lighting settings so you can view yourself in different environments. These makeup mirrors usually come in different finishes such as polished chrome, brushed nickel, oiled bronze, black matte, among others.

4. Lighting and Magnification

Lighting and magnifying features are the most important features you can have for your makeup mirror. Natural lighting is best, but not everyone has that option when applying makeup. Mirrors with built-in lighting can reflect your appearance in a clear manner as it shows any imperfections that need to be corrected. Choose bulbs that are close to natural lighting such as LED or fluorescent bulbs. Incandescent lights, which have lighter bulbs are also ideal if you need them for standard grooming routines.

As for magnification, whether you have poor or perfect eyesight, getting a closer look at your face allows for perfect makeup application. The standard magnification level is between 2X to 10X. You can also choose anything over 10X depending on your vision and personal preference. Many of these mirrors are available with two sides, one non-magnified and one magnified.
