Why do they call it a dressing table, anyway? You don’t really need the table to put on your clothes; you dress while standing up or sitting in a chair.
We all know the answer. It’s because dressing up involves more than clothes – it also requires careful attention to hair, jewelry and most importantly, makeup. And for those tasks, you don’t just need a dressing table. You need a mirror – ideally, one with lights.
The most important consideration when choosing a dressing table mirror with lights, naturally, is the size of your table. You can find options in just about any size, starting with small, round, lighted mirrors which will sit perfectly on a table the size of a writing desk. On the other hand, there are plenty of mirrors with lights that are as large as two feet by three feet, oriented either lengthwise or vertically.
Just as important, though, is the type of illumination the mirror provides; you may be able to see your face better with a lighted mirror, but poor lighting won’t be much help. In fact, it can actually hurt. The brightness of a dressing table mirror with lights isn’t a major concern, since any decent model will provide plenty of lumens and will have a dimming function. The real issue is the type of lighting.
Some of these dressing table mirrors use fluorescent lights, which is quite bright – and that’s the problem. Bright, cool fluorescent light looks nothing like natural sunlight, the ideal lighting for makeup application. It leads women to put on much more foundation and blush than necessary, with often-disastrous consequences. Incandescent lighting is fine, but it uses a lot of energy and doesn’t replicate natural light in some environments.
Halogen or LED lighting is by far the best choice for dressing table mirrors with lights, because they give the skin a natural appearance and won’t lead you astray when putting on makeup. The light will normally come from either a number of LED lights inside a translucent frame around the mirror, or a series of small, visible LED bulbs mounted on the mirror itself. A few dressing table mirrors have actual bulb sockets around the frame, allowing you to install LED, halogen or other type of bulbs.
It’s difficult to find a dressing table with lights that isn’t modern-looking, since most are finished in chrome or built from white synthetics. Search for a while, though, and you’ll discover other more traditional choices with gold finishes or design flourishes.
