Reading Time: 3 minutes

You’ve shopped for your favorite cosmetics and selected new skin care products to try. Now, all you need is a makeup mirror to help you achieve the perfect look.

Your mom and grandma may have used a traditional makeup mirror that probably included a “regular” and “magnifying” side. But modern makeup mirrors feature technology that can help you really nail your makeup application.

From Rechargeable LED mirrors to powerful travel mirrors, these mirrors make it easy to achieve selfie-worthy results.

1. Cordless & Rechargeable LED Mirror Features 3 Light Settings

If you want an eco-friendly, light-up makeup mirror, look no further than the Vera makeup mirror from Fancii. Featuring a non-slip base, and an adjustable tilt to 45 degrees, this large oval lighted mirror also has three dimmable LED light settings:

  • Soft White for when you apply your nighttime facial creams
  • Neutral white for when you need to be precise when tweezing your brows or applying eyeliner
  • Natural Daylight for when you apply makeup

If you’re worried about wasting power, don’t fear. The Vera vanity makeup mirror will automatically turn itself off after 30 minutes, and it comes with a rechargeable battery.

2. Let Your Makeup Mirror Also Entertain You

You can listen to your favorite tunes while you primp using the Sensor Mirror Hi-Fi from simplehuman. Priced at $300, the mirror includes a high-fidelity, custom-designed speaker. This speaker produces high-quality sound, so you can pump up your mood while you get ready.

The mirror is also Alexa compatible, so you can use voice commands to start your music or podcast while applying your cosmetics.

But the Sensor Mirror Hi-Fi does more than merely play audio. This mirror also features simplehuman’s tru-lux light system, which mimics natural light’s full-color spectrum.

You can also easily adjust the level of light with the light control bar.

3. Get Consistent Results From a Hardwired LED Makeup Mirror

The Jerdon Direct Wire LED-Lighted Mirror is a permanent installation for your bathroom that gives you reliable, consistent results because it’s always in the same place with the same light level. 

The Jerdon makeup mirror features a 25-watt incandescent halo illumination designed to mimic indoor lighting. And, because it’s hard-wired, you won’t have to worry about batteries running low.

Jerdon has made mirrors for hotels and the hospitality industry, so you can rest assured it’s a high-quality mirror made by a highly experienced company.

4. Travel Light With a Compact Makeup Mirror

A compact makeup mirror can be handy when you’re on vacation or simply for touchups on the go.

For example, the Zadro LED Compact Travel Mirror is about 4 in. by 4 in. in size, so it will easily fit into your purse or suitcase.

But while this makeup mirror is small, it doesn’t skimp on features, which include:

  • LED lighting
  • 1x and 10x magnification choices
  • Non-beveled mirrored glass circles

Additionally, the mirror folds shut when not in use and the plastic cover helps keep the mirrors free from scratches and scuffs.

5. When You’re on the Go, Go for a Portable Tablet Makeup Mirror

When you want a larger makeup mirror you can use anywhere, look no further than the Rechargeable Tablet Mirror from Conair.

This mirror offers a number of features:

  • Lightweight and easy to carry
  • Folds up like a tablet
  • Wireless power
  • Lithium battery that has a 4-hour life on a single charge

Besides being portable, this mirror also features touchscreen technology. So, you can easily change the light settings from low to medium to high.

Not Your Grandma’s Makeup Mirror

Modern makeup mirrors improve on the traditional style in a variety of ways. 

For example, rather than having to move the mirror from room to room to find the best lighting, you can now purchase one with built-in lighting.

So, whether you go for a makeup mirror hard-wired into your wall, a rechargeable model, or one that you can tuck into your bag, modern makeup mirrors can help you look your best.
