5 Uses of a 15x Lighted Makeup Mirror

5 Uses of a 15x Lighted Makeup MirrorWhen you apply your makeup, you’re a blank canvas – anything goes. You have the ability to turn your skin from yikes to glam. You can even turn back the years or make yourself look older. Boring handheld mirrors are great, but they don’t provide you with the same functionality that a 15x lighted makeup mirror offers.

And if you’re wondering if you need this high of magnification, it really depends on your needs.

Let’s take a look at the 5 uses for these mirrors and how they can help anyone master their makeup or skin routine.

1. Difficulty Seeing

We’re not trying to be “smart” or insult anyone, but if you have difficulty seeing, a high magnification mirror can help you zoom in on your face to see any imperfections that you may have missed. People who have just had eye surgery often choose higher magnification because they can see much better.

And you can also use these mirrors from further away to have a larger view.

This is great for older users, too, that may have trouble seeing when they look in the mirror. Of course, a pair of glasses can help, but the frames have a way of getting in the way and not allowing you to apply your makeup properly.

A makeup mirror doesn’t pose these same issues, so you’ll be able to apply your makeup without having to do so with your glasses on the top of your head.

2. Applying Eyeliner

You know those times when you think your eyeliner is just perfect, but then every one of your girlfriends keeps telling you that it doesn’t look right? It’s embarrassing, and it’s not something that a woman wants to hear after applying her makeup time and time again.

So, what can you do?

There are a few options:

  • Sit in front of a regular mirror and hope that you get your makeup just right.
  • Use a magnification mirror to zoom in on just the eyes.
  • Allow someone else to apply your makeup for you.

If you’re like most women, one thing on this list will stand out: magnification. A magnification mirror will allow you to look very closely at just your eyes, allowing you to apply the makeup properly the first time. And don’t worry if this sounds tedious, it’s not.

You’ll be able to zoom in just enough so that only your eyes and a little of the surrounding skin will be visible. After just one or two tries, you’ll quickly learn how to use your mirror perfectly. Some women like the higher magnification because it allows them to stand up or apply their makeup from afar.

Everyone has their own preference when applying makeup, but if you have trouble with the finishing touches, especially in small areas, a magnification mirror can help dramatically.

3. Low-Light Areas

Sometimes, we won’t have the natural, beautiful light shining through the window illuminating everything in sight. There are times, lots of them, when there will be low light conditions that make it impossible to see how your makeup will look.

And if you plan on going to a soccer game, your makeup will look much different under the sunlight than it will in darker light, say, at a restaurant.

Illuminated mirrors help circumvent these low-light conditions.

And they do it well.

See, the mirror’s light is focused on your face, so it will only illuminate the face and zoom in on the face. This allows you much greater control to see how your makeup will look under different lighting scenarios.

You’ll also need to consider the form of lighting:

  • LED is great. It offers an array of light and lasts long, too.
  • Halogen bulbs are a little yellow in color, so they’re the most complementing.
  • Flourescent is too bright and makes your makeup look horrible.

So, not only can the right makeup mirror make you a makeup artist, it can also sabotage your entire makeup session, too.

4. Plucking Eyebrows

Sure, you have a fancy 15x magnifying makeup mirror ready and waiting for you, but you also have a highly functional mirror that is just perfect when it comes time to pluck your eyebrows. You know those pesky times when you’re plucking away and then all of a sudden, two hours later, you notice all of the small hairs that you missed?

I hate that.

Every man and woman hates that. But a magnified mirror allows you to see these missed hairs so that you can get the pain of plucking your eyebrows out of the way the first time.

Start off with a 10x magnification if you can, and then increase it as needed. This will allow you to find the right magnification levels for your needs.

And it makes plucking your eyes a little better. You’ll make fewer mistakes, but those pesky pains from plucking are still going to be there.

5. Covering Noticeable Pores

It’s no secret: you have large pores. The pores on your face look huge some days, and then the next, they’re barely visible. It’s like some kind of curse, and while it isn’t something you should be happy about, it’s also not the end of the world.

There’s still some hope for you.

Foundation can do wonders to get rid of these pores, or conceal them. But, if you need to find every last pour and want your makeup to look natural and even, the right mirror is needed to get a closeup look at the situation and put an end to it.

Don’t get me wrong – life can be worse, but you never want to look imperfect because your pores stick out.

Amplify your magnification and use lighting to view your pores from different angles ensuring that you conceal every last pore you can find. It’s a lot of work, but I am confident that you’ll be able to cover up your pores and make your skin look amazing in the process.

I recommend adjusting your mirror lighting to find what looks and works best for you.

The highest magnification may work great for eyeliner, but you may find it doesn’t work as well for blush. Experiment and find what works for you.
