Worryingly it’s said that around 70% of us our making one fundamental error while applying our makeup, which can leave us looking patchy, colour mis-matched or simply not getting the result we were after. How many times have you been tagged in a Facebook photo only to realise you’ve got giant white patches under your eyes where you’ve over-applied the concealer, or have stepped out feeling fabulous only to realise upon going to the loo that your bronzer looks like something straight out of Essex? It’s so easy to get it wrong; I for one have often been told (by kind friends) that there’s a foundation mark around my jawline, or that I need to tone down the blush, and I profess to be somewhat of a beauty expert! But what’s the root cause of all these makeup mishaps and embarrassing conversations? It’s all in the lighting – and the perfect makeup mirror is all you need to solve the issue once and for all.
It doesn’t matter how many tutorials you watch, how many makeup classes you attend or how much you spend on the perfect products, if you’re applying your daily look under the incorrect lighting it could all be in vain. Almost all indoor lighting (particularly in bedrooms and bathrooms) is categorised as ‘bad lighting’ because it doesn’t show the true colour of your makeup, instead dulling it or adjusting the colour so it’s so much harder to match and blend to your own skin tone. There’s nothing worse than thinking you’ve nailed it, only to step out doors and have your makeup mistakes illuminated by the cold harsh light of day.
I’ve gotten into a really bad habit of doing my makeup at my dressing table with the curtains still closed, leaving the lighting less than ideal; if I swap to the bathroom then my face is tinted in a rather harsh and unflattering yellow veil, which isn’t much better. So thankfully the Spotlite HD Diamond 2.0 mirror is here to change those habits, revolutionise the way I apply my beauty products and leave me with a look that’s perfectly matched, blended and buffed. You could say it’s the perfect makeup mirror.
THE FEATURES YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT
This innovative, incredibly portable and sleek mirror provides ultra-bright ‘true’ daylight to ensure the correct conditions for applying your makeup at all times; up to ten times brighter than other makeup mirrors, it’s a complete and compact mini studio that contains everything you need to nail your look every time.
The foldable style makes it super travel friendly (is there anything worse than dodgy hotel lighting?) while the powerful lithium battery is both long-lasting and rechargeable via a USB cable, so you don’t even have to faff with adapters. There’s even a low battery alert to let you know when to charge it, so you’ll never be without your favourite tool! Dimmable touch-sensitive lights and a magnetically detachable magnification mirror make this feel like a super pro accessory, while the fact you can fold the mirror to whichever way it suits you (forward or backward!) ensures it fits into your life with ease.
What I do really love is the fact you can attach it to a wall or mirror, thanks to the strips included, so it’s always in the perfect location (and height) for your needs; there’s no need to drill holes in the wall or feel like any position is permanent, as it’s been designed to be taped up and removed as much as you like. As if that wasn’t enough, it also automatically switches off when it’s closes and features an integrated tray for you to store or place beauty bits. Is there anything they haven’t thought of, or is this really the perfect makeup mirror?
Not only is this a perfect solution for your dressing table or bathroom, providing incredibly natural light and helping you to create the best look possible, but it’s so well designed it’s perfect for those of us that frequently find themselves staying in hotels or AirBnBs. I loathe getting ready with a tiddly mirror or trying to balance the yellowness of bathroom lighting with my need for a touch of bronzer, but with this perfect makeup mirror I’ve finally found a solution – for when I’m both at home and away.
The Spotlite HD Diamond 2.0 mirror has been a long time coming, but it’s proud to say it’s the world’s first ‘true’ daylight perfecting makeup mirror. Nothing else even comes close and it’s one of those products I’ll be snapping up to give all the women in my life for Christmas.
I love it a lot and I’m sure you will too…
