How do magnifying makeup mirrors work?

Magnifying makeup mirrors are concave mirrors. Concave mirrors’ surfaces are curved inward, and have the effect of enlarging an image of the object it reflects. I

Magnification in makeup mirrors works by zooming in or enlarging an image to see it more clearly for better and comfortable makeup application.

You can choose from 2x to 20x magnification, depending on how much magnification you need and where you plan to use your mirror.

When choosing a makeup mirror with strong magnification, it’s recommended to choose one with two sides for more viewing versatility.

These Mirrorvana magnified makeup mirrors have 1x magnification on 1 side and 3x, 5x or 10x magnification on the other side.
