Magnifying Make Up Mirror

A magnifying make up mirror serves a number of functions. Many people find them useful for putting in contact lenses and others find them useful for close make up application, examining their complexion or using tweezers .

They come in a variety of colours and finishes such as silver mirrors , rose gold mirrors, white mirrors and gold mirrors. Depending on where you want to put it, there are also a variety of sizes and attachments. Magnifying mirrors for the bathroom are usually on a stand alone plinth, whilst smaller mirrors can be added to a large looking glass with a suction pad for expert close ups.

What will you be using it for?

If you are using your mirror for inserting contact lenses, it is easier to have it resting on a surface so that you can have a steady hand. When using a magnifying mirror for applying make up, you might not need it to be on a shelf. Instead, it may be far more useful to you on a dressing table.

The bathroom is usually a good place to keep your magnifying mirror, due to good overhead lighting, but some people prefer the bedroom. Some magnifying mirrors have two sides; one with a standard mirror on one side, which can be flipped around to reveal the magnifying mirror on the other side.

Will you need lighting?

Depending on where you will be using your mirror, you may decide to choose one with built in lighting . This usually takes the form of a light border circling the entire mirror. This is a useful function when using your mirror in poorly lit areas.

What type do you need?

Magnifying mirrors can be attached to bathroom walls and have extending arms so that you can adjust it to the right angle. You can also buy stand alone mirrors that can be used in a bathroom or bedroom, or smaller handbag mirrors that are either round like a powder compact, or mirrors that come with a small foldable stand.
