What's the best magnification for a makeup mirror?

The best makeup mirror magnification depends on the user’s preference. It is also best to consider your eyesight when choosing a magnifying mirror.

Magnifying makeup mirrors are being rated based on how much bigger they make an object look. They come with magnification levels from 1x to 20x, they all provide a crystal clear view of you. For most users with normal vision, 3x to 5x magnification works well.

Higher magnification levels are recommended for those who are visually impaired so they can see even without wearing their glasses.

The higher the magnification the closer you will have to be to the mirror for a more detailed and less distorted image.

Mirrorvana’s makeup mirrors have different magnifications for you to choose from, ranging from 1x magnification to 20x magnification.
