Tips On Lighting For Makeup Application

Learn about the correct lighting for makeup application

Lighting is key when it comes to applying your makeup because you want it to look as natural as possible. If you apply makeup in the wrong lighting, you could end up with makeup that is too dark, too light or the wrong shade for your face. In general, the ideal lighting for makeup application is natural light, since we spent most of our time in the natural sunlight that is outside and that comes in through windows. Try to set up your mirror next to a window or if you have the option, do your makeup on the patio, porch or in your yard.

If the above mentioned lighting situations are not a possibility, you may want to look into vanity mirror lighting for makeup application. There are many great lighted mirrors that mimic natural lighting and help you apply your makeup in the most natural and flawless way possible. Sephora offers a series of lighted vanity mirrors to help you with your makeup application, and you can also get a recommendation from your local makeup artist or esthetician.
