1. Natural Daylight Is the Best for Makeup Application

Nothing beats a natural light in giving a more accurate glance of your face. Natural daylight is clear and diffused that illuminates your entire face to help you see if your makeup is not properly blended for a more precise application. But it is not always possible to have natural daylight, especially at night, do it is helpful to have a vanity mirror with light that mimics natural lighting. Our luxury makeup mirroremits softly diffused LED light that PERFECTLY IMITATES NATURAL LIGHTING.


2. Use the Right Type Of Bulbs

Bulb hues have a lot of influence on the way you apply your makeup. LED bulbs have a much better color-rendering that mimic the light similar to natural daylight, so it is so far the best for makeup application. The warm white light bulb is so far the best to use and provides even illumination. Thus, rose, yellow and fluorescent lights are the worst. Yellow can make you look dull, rose lighting can be too warm and fluorescent can be too harsh and super bright that focuses on your blemishes and spots that can look unflattering. Our Holywood Vanity Mirror has a bright LED light bulbs that are FULLY ADJUSTABLE, not only for brightness but also for warmth – CHOOSE BETWEEN PURE WHITE & WARMER YELLOW LIGHT to achieve ideal natural lighting.


3. Lights Should Be At Face Level

Having the lights positioned in a proper face level is ideal to give you the right illumination. Having the lights above or below the face can cast shadows that can make it hard for you to put your make up on, resulting in either putting too much or less makeup as needed. Minimizing shadows will ensure that you're putting your makeup in the right places with the right amount. Do not have the lights solely from the top of the head, because shadows created under the chin and eye socket can be biased in proper makeup application. Our large, professional tabletop mirror is adjustable with a 360° tilting capacity.


4. Use More Than One Light

Using more than one light especially having it on each side of the face can cause the cross illumination effect. It is perfect to make sure that the entire face is lit up and every part is easy to see at one glance. So you have to make sure that the Vanity Mirror you should be using should have lights on both sides and the bulbs are evenly spaced so the lighting is even. It is also best to have lights that provide under-chin and overhead lighting.
