The Best Makeup Mirror

Key Buying Tips

Choosing the best makeup mirror to suit your needs really isn't too complicated.  Don't put off picking one, as it truly is a must have.

First of all, it comes down to quality features like clear, distortion free magnification (5X is standard), and light settings that simulate daylight.  Daylight is most important and least forgiving of the light settings we are in.  (Office and evening are handy scenarios too.)

Magnification is very helpful tool for personal care.  Whether it is grooming, makeup, completing a fine detail beauty measure such as tweezing, a magnification mirror makes ALL the difference.

*If you have ever over tweezed your brows from grabbing too many hairs at once, or left the house with poorly blended makeup (discovered in the rear view mirror of your the end of your day), over covered a blemish,  etcetera,  I'm sure you can relate to this point.

Secondly, part of your decision making in choosing the ideal best makeup mirror will be based on design aesthetics and meeting the logistical arrangement of your bathroom...or vanity table ...wherever you conduct your beauty regime.  Mirrors can be on stands, mounted on walls with extend able arms, or even suction cups. A hands free option with good lighting is the ideal.

Best Makeup Mirror- Some features to look for:

  • powerful magnification (5X is standard)-distortion free
  • hands free convenience
  • adjustable mirror, or arm
