If you are one of those women who cannot step out of the house without makeup then you should start with getting the best mirror. These are useful mirrors for men because shaving is among their needs and they ought to be added to the bathroom and shower. The producers have so many designs of the mirrors such that clients can decide to have one style for every room in their homes. Some of the makeup mirrors illuminate the view depending on the background light while others will just magnify it. When it comes to selecting a makeup mirror, you should be guided by your preference and style. You will find many with metallic frames which are stand-alone thus made with a heavy base. You will find them with different finishes like oiled bronze, polished chrome, black matte and brushed nickel. If you want one you can take with you for trips, you should choose those with foldable stands, plastic frames, and pedestal.
You should think about the lighting 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. Also, the source of light, time and season of the year will have an effect on this. The way the makeup will appear during the day will be different from how you see your reflection when only candles are lightning the background. If you can afford to do makeup in natural lightning then the better. For just combing your hair or shaving, you should go for incandescent lighting because it has a warm tone and offers a soft halo illumination.
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. For makeup purposes, pick fluorescent or LED mirrors because the lighting will be close to what daylight looks like and also brighter. You will also pay less for your energy bills because LED and fluorescent bulbs do not consume a lot of energy with LED bulbs lasting a lifetime and the fluorescent ones offering services for at 3 years. If you are keen on your choice, you will come across models which offer features to adjust the light settings to simulate interior locations, evening and daylight.
