In order to get the perfect makeup look, there are several things you should keep in mind. Apart from a good sense of style, the quality of the makeup product, and having a firm hand, the mirror that you use is key to obtaining the best results possible.
There are many mirror factors that play a part in how your makeup turns out. The location, height, lighting and more all play a role in making sure you see your skin and the product in a way that allows you to achieve the right look.
One of the key factors is mirror illumination. It should be adequately lit so that you can see what you’re doing, as proper lighting will help you be sure that spots of foundation aren’t missed or left unblended. If a mirror has bad lighting, it can throw shadows, and the real tones and mixes of colors can seem off. Thus, getting the best light source possible is essential to looking put together.
One way to achieve this would be to purchase one of those lighted makeup mirrors. They make it easy to have the proper lighting in the proper place. Daylight is really the ideal, but many people don’t have access to that where they do their makeup, and at night, there is no light to properly work. Thus, a lighted mirror is a fantastic option for many women because it provides front-on, bright lighting just where it is needed.
Make sure your lit mirror has lights almost all the way around it be it a round or square mirror. This will allow you to have every angle well lit.
But lighting isn’t the only thing to consider. Another important factor is the height and size of the mirror you’ll be using. If your mirror is too low or too high, you won’t be comfortable or stable while applying your makeup. This could cause problems during the application of eyeliners, mascaras, eyeshadow, etc. Make sure that it’s at a height that you won’t need to bend over to use. Hang it at eye level, where you can lean in close to the glass and see easily what you’re doing. If you’ll be sitting, do the same, but be sure there is enough space around you to do your makeup comfortably.
Some women also choose magnifying mirrors, or regular mirrors with a magnifying section that can help them to see any imperfections up close. This may be a good idea, even if you have very good eyesight. A magnifying mirror can help you double-check that you’ve got the same coverage on your entire face, or if you have some extra translucent powder somewhere. It can help you perfect your look.
So, if you need to get a perfected look, take into good account what type of mirror you purchase, as well as the lighting and where you locate it. Consider a pre-lit mirror made especially for doing makeup. It will all play a part in helping you to get the perfected, porcelain, and elegant look you’ve been trying for without any mishaps.
