Advice for good lighted vanity mirrors?

Recommended Posts

I wasn't sure what category this post would go under...so I put it here. Feel free to move it if it's out of place.

 

Hey girls, I was wondering if anyone could help give me some advice about a good quality lighted makeup mirror. I kind of just try to do my makeup in front of a window, with a hand held mirror. But I would love to get a lighted mirror that comes as close to natural lighting as possible. Any suggestion is welcome! I'm looking for one of the small vanity mirrors, not like the HUGE Vanity Girl Hollywood mirrors. Thanks!

I'm hoping you get some suggestions, because I'd like to get one too. I do my makeup in my bathroom and it's kind of dark. So then I have to take a handheld mirror to the window and double check that I don't have clown cheeks or the dreaded line between my face and neck.

I have yet to try a vanity mirror like you are suggesting that doesn't suck. What might work is your own custom set up, with a nice sized mirror and a couple of table lamps with bright, natural light bulbs.

I constantly walk around the house while doing my make up!  I have never been able to find a mirror that works well. 

 

I do have a soft spot for this old mirror my Grandmother had from the 1970's. There were 3 mirrors, and the lights had all kinds of different settings - some bluer, some redder.  It was, of course, in a gorgeous harvest gold.  I used to think it was the fanciest thing ever as a little girl!

I've been looking for a good lighted mirror since I moved my makeup from my bathroom, which had fantastic lighting.  The one I've narrowed down to is the OttLite Natural.

Anybody have experience with it?

 

Edited to add:

 

Amazon has the best priced on them at $45.  I decided to go ahead and get one and was able to use some Discover award dollars which brought it down to $35.  I'll post a review once I get it.

My OttLite Natural makeup mirror arrived yesterday, which was super fast!  I think it's going to work out well.  The lights are bright enough and the mirror has a regular and magnified side.  Last night the magnified side lured me into plucking lots of stray eyebrow hairs I did not realize I had icon_eek.gif, so that's good, I guess.  I can definitely see much better!

Hi!

The best lightning you can get from a bulb is the ones that have 5000K light temperature as it just as sunlight.
Or you can get a Glamcor system

If you are a Costco member, every year Costco brings out a lovely elegant looking tabletop vanity mirror for $20. It always goes on coupon for about 3 weeks during the November/December time. I have one and I absolutely love it and it was very affordable and looks beautiful. Light is excellent too.

My mom has one and it is just put away for several years now. I have pulled it out a couple of times and think about buying one or just taking hers.

I agree with the above, but Glamcor is the better way to go.

Hello beautiful people, it's me again. I've searched quite a bit and found this marvelous place that has reviews and comparisons of popular mirrors, it is a life saver.

http://www.mirrorank.com/best-makeup-mirrors/wall-mounted-lighted-reviews/

That's the wall mounted page (i'm a sucker for wall mounted ones!) but you can find other pages that deal with other types such as the regular standing ones and even vanities. I hope it's helpful, sure was for me!

    • I used to be an ipsy member and a birch box member but just relocated to Melbourne in Australia and they don't ship to Australia Does anyone subscribe to bellabox www.bellabox.com.au ? Looking for insight before joining.   
    • Does anyone know anything about A-Beauty? I saw something about Australian beauty but I hadn't heard of it before.
    • When you do it as a hobby it`s very fun But Study on such things are rather bored and took too much time. Especially on various writing papers and essay. I don`t want to spend my time on it so I ask my friends from  https://www.superiorpapers.com/ to help solve this problem. They do it for the high quality so I don`t afraid about the mark.
    • Congratulations! It's very nice when dreams come true. I also like to take pictures, just doing it quite rarely, mainly in travels and exhibitions. I have an inexpensive lens, but a very good tripod. It's lightweight, compact and easy to take on travel. I believe that if you don't plan to arrange photo shoots only in the studio, then you need just such one. Now on the Internet there are many good portals for photographers, for example, here https://threeleggedtech.com/best-travel-tripod-for-mirrorless-camera you can find reviews of various tripods that can be taken on a journey. It really helps to choose good equipment for the camera. I think you can find articles with reviews of different lenses. It will also help you to choose.
