Makeup mirrors are an absolute must for anyone attempting to complete a flawless look. Not only do they help illuminate all parts of your face to allow for better coverage of makeup, but magnifying mirrors can also make tasks such as eyebrow shaping and peach-fuzz shaving even easier by reducing eyestrain in those close-up touchups. Below are our favorite makeup mirrors for your next time to primp.
Purchasing Makeup Mirrors
Here’s what to consider:
- Lighted: A lighted mirror will illuminate those hairs you may have missed or that patch of unblended concealer to ensure your face is picture-perfect.
- Magnifying: A mirror with strong magnification can help you with tasks that typically cause eyestrain, such as eyebrow shaping, peach-fuzz removal, or false eyelash application.
- Rechargeable vs. Plug-In: Mirrors with a recharging system can mean there are no cords to worry about during your morning routine, whereas a plug-in mirror can always be ready at the touch of a button.
- Size: From small and compact mirrors that sit on your sink to full-vanity Hollywood-style mirrors, there is a range of sizes to make you feel fabulous.
