Lighting Your Face For Perfect Makeup
All makeup artists agree natural daylight is best. It’s evenly diffused and clear, so you can easily see when something isn’t blended properly. If you have the option of doing your makeup near a window or skylight, take advantage of it.
Natural white light is the next best thing. For the best white light experience, we recommend our LED Vanity Mirror. The bulbs all around provide ideal lighting conditions that perfectly imitate natural light.
Avoid yellow, rose, and fluorescent lights. Yellow light can make you look sallow, so you end up putting on too much makeup. Rose-colored light warms up your skin, but it’s not ideal for makeup as you can’t really see what you are doing. Fluorescent light is the worst. It pulls out all the imperfections.
Stand directly in front of your light. Don’t stand directly underneath it, such as when using a lamp or ceiling light. Any lighting that’s overhead is bad. It will cast a shadow and you’ll end up putting too much on.
Follow these tips and never have the fear of walking out your door with splotchy makeup again.
