If you are a girl who loves makeup then you know how important getting the right mirror is. These are useful mirrors for men because shaving is among their needs and they ought to be added to the bathroom and shower. There are so many styles of these mirrors to the point where you can choose a different one for each room in your house. Many of the mirrors will either illuminate or magnify the view depending on the light in the room. When it comes to selecting a makeup mirror, you should be guided by your preference and style. The metallic ones are made to stand up on their own on the table and they are heavier on the base to give them stability. You will find them with different finishes like oiled bronze, polished chrome, black matte and brushed nickel. 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.
Make sure the lighting of the mirror is okay for you 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. 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.
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. There are advanced models now too which offer light settings to help your simulate evening, daylight and also interior locations.
