Can a makeup mirror start a fire?

YES. Concave mirrors like a magnifying makeup mirror can be a fire hazard if the concave side is placed into direct sunlight. Because the surface of the magnifying mirror is curved inward, the mirror can focus and amplify the intense light from the sun’s rays, and when projected on flammable objects, it can start a fire.

Usually, a safety warning about fire is included in your makeup instructions.
