Should I buy a wall-mounted or freestanding makeup mirror?


• Wall-mounted: For those who are serious about applying makeup, a wall-mounted unit is great option. Although they’re more expensive than the basic models, you can adjust the height and decide whether to sit or stand. They also often come with an extendable arm, so you can move it toward you or place it flush against the wall to save space.
• Freestanding: On the other hand, a freestanding mirror is a more affordable option that still allows for plenty of flexibility. Instead of being mounted on the wall, this unit can be moved from room to room and placed on tables, desks and counters for the necessary height variation. Many of these units come with an LED light, but since a lighted makeup mirror may need to be plugged in, it can limit where and when you use it.

What are some shaving mirror and makeup mirror features to look for?


The best mirrors have a high magnification level to ensure prime makeup application, but some are better than others. Regardless of whether you're a perfectionist or OK with the minimum, be sure to find the magnification level that makes you comfortable (and will be most useful). Another helpful tool that many models have is a lighted frame. The nicer models are touch activated, while the more affordable options include an on and off switch or button. Oftentimes the lighting has different levels of brightness, while high-end models replicate natural lighting found outdoors. Finally, for the ultimate luxury, invest in a mirror with a fog-free coating.
