If you are a girl who loves makeup then you know how important getting the right mirror is. This is not all though because men will require them in shaving which is why they are a great addition to the bathroom and the shower. Given how different the styles of the mirrors are, you do not even have to restrict yourself to one and you can vary them according to the room you are adding them to. Many of the mirrors will either illuminate or magnify the view depending on the light in the room. When deciding on the mirror which you go home with, give consideration to your style and preference. 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 the mirror to be that one thing that doesn’t miss in your bag, make sure it has foldable stands and plastic frames as well as pedestals.
Make sure the lighting of the mirror is okay for you too. You need to have great light when you are applying your makeup but remember that will differ depending on the kind of an 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. 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. It will be better if you do your makeup in natural lighting. If your needs stop at combing your hair and shaving, you should feel free to go for incandescent lighting because of it’s warm tone and even soft halo illumination.
This is not a choice you want to make when you want to be using the mirror to do your makeup because the fact that there will be another light source in the room means that you will not be able to see the real view. 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. Besides paying low energy bills with fluorescent and LED bulbs, you will also forget about buying more bulbs for the rest of your life when you buy LED bulbs and in case of fluorescent, you can be making replacements every 3 years or more. There are advanced models now too which offer light settings to help your simulate evening, daylight and also interior locations.
