Makeup always comes out looking its best when applied in natural light, but sadly, many of us aren’t blessed with that kind of set-up in our home and bathrooms, oftentimes leaving us looking like an entirely different person when we step foot outside. The foundation that appeared to be the perfect shade match under your fluorescent-lit powder room may look straight-up orange when you step foot outdoors, or your “subtle” highlight look may curiously transform into disco-ready sparkles once the sun hits your face. Sure, you could drag your makeup collection to your outside patio or sit in the car just to try to get an accurate sense of lighting, but these options aren’t really practical for every day.
Fortunately, there are many more convenient alternatives to help you out on this front. Lighted makeup mirrors (especially devices designed with smart functionality settings and Bluetooth compatibility) are the next best bet to applying your makeup outside. These lighted vanity accessories help you re-create natural light, and offer you a slew of different temperatures, brightness levels, and other adjustable functions to help you apply your makeup flawlessly in the comfort of your own home. Ahead, check out some of our favorite options to try out for yourself.
