Make up mirrors are a must have for any person who puts any kind of face product on their body. To be sure, you can always tell a person who has a good mirror with good lighting and one who doesn’t. Common symptoms of a person who doesn’t have a proper make up mirror include eye shadows and liners that aren’t properly blended, missed areas of foundation and the dreaded make up line. Nobody wants to look as though they have a three inch thick mask of make up that they put on every morning, so it always surprises me when people don’t take the time and effort to get a good mirror.
There are many different kinds of make up mirrors on the market today, and some are definitely better than others. In my expert opinion, the best make up mirrors have two different sides that can be flipped over, depending on what your needs are. The first side shows your face as it really is, while the other magnifies it at least two times the size of normal. Having one side magnifies is imperative when it comes to the detail in your makeup. Let’s be honest, good makeup is all in the details. The magnified side is great for putting on your eye make up, and can be your best friend as you blend one shade into another.
The normal sized side of good make up mirrors are best used for looking at the face as a whole. You can use this side to make sure you don’t have a foundation line or that your blush isn’t too harsh. It is also important that your make up mirror isn’t distorted at all. Even if the mirror is the slightest bit concave or convex, it can make a huge difference in the overall result of your application.
