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 have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now. 
    • Men with gray hair are often flattered for their distinguished looks. Timothy Olyphant, John Slattery and other stars demonstrate the attractive face of gray hair. We hope they help you discover the cut that will best suit your gray hair. Take a look at these three guys in the photo above. The photo on the right shows Adam Lambert (born 1982), who is the youngest of the three. He probably doesn't want to praise senior citizens, but instead prefers to wear his voluminous gray hair to stand out from the crowd. Some young stars like Adam Lambert and Kelly Osbourne love to wear gray hair and enjoy playing with cliches. Of course, such characteristic appearances draw the attention of young Hollywood-obsessed youth. The white hair mixed with natural colors in the heads of young stars attracts more sure looks that lilacs, pinks or greens and go unnoticed. In the photo Timothy Olyphant (born 1968) appears in the center, as does his hairstyle. His “salt and pepper” hair near his temples and on his beard makes him look naturally distinguished and adds the appeal of the hair growth products for african american hair mature man who knows who he is and what he wants. Why change something that works so well? This can also be applied to John Slattery (born 1962), on the left of the photo. Almost all of John Slattery's hair lacks pigment and is therefore close to the transition from silver to white. His modern hairstyle and carefree demeanor show a person who knows how to step forward without getting nervous. No wonder it arouses as much admiration as desire.  Best hairstyles for men with gray hair Whatever the way that stars and celebrities wear or (pretend to) assume their gray hair, since they discover their first gray hair, most men (or women) have only one emotional response: “Oh no! Get rid of them! ” After the first shock of noticing that time passes while we don't realize it, most men at least cut their hair or shave off their beard that is starting to turn gray. This reaction is very constructive. In the photo, Matt Damon demonstrates how interesting haircuts are for men with gray hair. This is also the most popular hairstyle of all time for men with gray hair. George Clooney teaches us how to wear gray hair with style and class.     It can take a while for people to get used to the idea of having gray hair. It is best to have a strategy when the first isolated gray hairs cannot be hidden or plucked for much longer. Why not let gray hair mix freely with the rest of your mane? Adam Lambert, Timothy Olyphant and John Slattery (see photo above) demonstrate how to do it with class. Jeff Bridges, with his shoulder length gray hair and thick beard, is the image of a nature lover, like his younger colleagues, Charlie Hunnam and Jake Gyllenhaal. https://folexin.info/ https://skincellpro11.weebly.com/
    • Love the placement and subtlety of the cat eye and subtle cut crease.  It looks gorgeous. I'm trying to perfect the cut crease with white eyeliner lately.  I've only practiced it twice so I have a long way to go.
    • Essential hydration The dermis is made up of 70% water and the epidermis 15%. To maintain a good level of hydration, it is therefore important to opt for daily moisturizers that balance the water level at the heart of the skin. You can also regularly use a moisturizing mask, it ensure both your face health and beauty by removing the excess using a mist of thermal water.
