I used to think all mirrors were the same, whether you spend £5 or £50 on it. Well, I now realise how stupid that sounds and how wrong I was to think it. For Christmas I was bought this No7 Illuminated Makeup Mirror. I was really excited to use it because I’d heard some great things about it. I’ve been using it ever since, and I can honestly say my make up has never looked better.
There is a 360 light all around the rim which is designed to eliminate shadows and show a truer-to-life skin tone so you can see how your make up is applying in a clearer perspective. The light is easily adjustable with a dimmer switch on the platform. The best part of this function is that it doesn’t need batteries! Well, it makes me happy anyway as I’m forever losing them. It’s as simple as plugging it in and turning up the dimmer switch to the level of lighting you want! I love the fact you can choose how much light as it means that you don’t have to have any, or you can have it to the fullest dependant on your surroundings.
The mirror isn’t fixed onto the stand, it has swivel motion making it easy to see what you’re doing at any angle. The double sided mirror does serve a purpose. While on one side it’s normal magnification, the opposite side is a 5x magnification. By having these two options for choice it enables me to have the perfect aspect of my larger surface application, but also of the more intricate details of my make up too. It’s so much easier using this compared to my normal mirror, especially as it can be used at any time of the day in any sort of light.
This No7 mirror is perfect for applying make up and grooming, and has so many amazing points to it. My make up has never looked better. It shows every flaw to your skin, which some may see as a bad thing. However, I know if my skin looks good in that mirror, it simply looks amazing.
