Makeup lighted mirrors are useful for not only applying makeup, but also other facial care tasks such as brushing and flossing your teeth, removing facial hair, plucking eye brows, inserting contact lenses, etc. There are many kinds of designs and finishes for your choice.
The pedestal type of mirror is the oldest type. It is usually oval in shape held by a stem, better known as an arm.
A rectangular magnifying makeup mirror is usually a little larger in size, than is a pedestal mirror. It is a great shape for lights, since they either surround the frame or are attached at each end.
• Wall mounted
Wall mounted magnifying makeup mirrors are very convenient, because there is little chance of breaking them. They also act as space savers.
• Table top
Table top mirrors are portable, so they can also be used for traveling. Many have features that allow them to be folded for easy transporting.
Not all makeup mirrors have lights. Some, especially inexpensive ones, do not include lights. However, many individuals prefer mirrors with lights, particularly if they are primarily used as magnifying mirrors.
Most often, the non-lighted mirrors are those used for travel and short periods of time.
A magnifying makeup mirror is used for those areas on the face that need special attention, such as follows:
It is very difficult to see to tweeze your eyebrows without a magnifying mirror. This tedious job is hard even with the assistance of magnification. Today, many individuals use the method of “hot wax” for eyebrow or hair removal. This definitely requires a magnifying mirror to prevent mistakes form occurring.
Men, as well as women, very often use a magnifying mirror when shaving.
– Eye shadow application
Applying eye shadow is difficult to accomplish without a magnifying makeup mirror. Especially when blending the colors, a close-up view is necessary.
When looking for those stray hairs, a magnifying mirror is needed. They are usually found between the eyes or over the lip. It is imperative that these strays be plucked in order to provide a well groomed image.
Shaving, especially for men around a beard or mustache, requires a close-up view. A magnifying mirror comes in real handy for these areas.
– Lipstick application
When painting one’s lips, it is necessary to have a magnifying mirror, so that the lipstick will not be uneven and out of the lines of the lips.
– Blemish care
Finding those small “zits” can be difficult unless you have a magnifying mirror to help.
All in all, a magnifying makeup mirror has many advantages and is designed to help with those “hard to find” spots. It can make a huge difference when being well groomed.
Although a lighted make up mirror may seem like a small purchase, it is actually an important investment in your overall beauty care. In order to apply make up correctly you will want to make sure the makeup mirror with light makes applying makeup easy and comfortable.
