What is the best lighting for a makeup mirror?
Natural daylight is the best lighting for a makeup mirror. It gives the most accurate reflection of your face. But if natural light is not available like in the winter months or on a nighttime makeup application, the next best thing is LED lighting. It gives off light that imitates natural daylight.
Aside from giving you a more natural reflection, LED lighting is energy-efficient compared with fluorescent and incandescent bulbs.
Some lighted makeup mirrors like Mirrorvana’s tri-fold makeup mirror have adjustable lighting modes to choose from: warm, white, or mixed lighting(combination of both).
Also, when choosing the best lighted makeup mirror, you need to consider the intensity of the light for your comfort, which is measured by the unit lux. The best light intensity which will clearly illuminate your face is between 500 and 1000 lux.
