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. There are so many styles of these mirrors to the point where you can choose a different one for each room in your house. Some of them will just magnify the view whiles others will just illuminate the view when the light is different. When deciding on the mirror which you go home with, give consideration to your style and preference. The metal-framed makeup mirrors are very heavy on their base to the point where they can stand on their own. Among the finishes you can get for makeup mirrors are polished chrome, brushed nickel, black matte and oiled bronze. 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. Besides the environment, expect to get different results depending on the lighting source, time, and even season. If you do the same makeup and stand in the sun to look at your reflection, the view will be different from what will be staring back at you when you are in a dark room lit by just candles. 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. For those who will be using the mirror mainly to do their makeup should choose either LED mirrors or the fluorescent kind because the view is not that far from what you will get during the day and you will also have a brighter view. 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. If you are willing to go deep in your search for the perfect makeup mirror, you can be graced by one that allows you to simulate different setting with light adjustments.
