Once you’ve outgrown your “starter apartment” or first house and you finally have the space for a few luxuries, it’s time to indulge yourself with that makeup table you’ve always wanted.
It shouldn’t be a simple vanity, though. What you need is a makeup vanity table with lighted mirror. Strong, even light is the only way to ensure that your foundation, concealer, blush, eye shadow, mascara – and everything else you use to achieve the right look – is applied perfectly.
The table is the easy part, since you can find one to match any bedroom or bathroom décor. A solid wood (or manufactured wood) vanity table with flared legs and gentle curves, stained white, is a perfect match for a country or tropical modern room. A dark wood vanity in the style of a vintage writing desk fits right into a traditional décor. You can also find them in glam, contemporary, and every other style imaginable, as wide as four feet and as narrow as 1½ feet.
Many tables with mirrors use fluorescent light to illuminate the mirror and your work space. That’s a bad choice, because the bright, “cool” light produced by fluorescent bulbs washes out natural skin tones. Makeup that looks just right under that type of light is usually way too heavy when seen in sunlight or in a restaurant other than McDonald’s.
Look instead for LED bulbs, whose warm light closely resembles natural sunlight. Many of today’s makeup vanity tables with lighted mirrors rely on a large number of LEDs to produce evenly-dispersed light from all directions, whether they’re bulbs in sockets mounted directly on the mirror, or smaller LEDs placed inside a translucent frame around the mirror.
Mirrors with bulb sockets may be the best choice of all, because you can replace the installed bulbs with halogen ones. Many professionals believe halogen is even better than LED light for applying makeup; this way, you can decide for yourself.
Finally, there’s the mirror – and those aren’t created equal, either. You may want to consider a makeup vanity table with a lighted mirror that swivels to give you just the right view of your face, or one which provides extra magnification. Almost every one of these vanities allows you to dim the lights (or make them brighter), but be make sure that feature is included.
