The right lighting can make all the difference when it comes to make-up application. To achieve natural coverage and a flawless finish, it is crucial to have the perfect lighting conditions in your home.
To help you create the best type of lighting for applying your make-up, the friendly team at Inspyer Lighting have kindly shared their top lighting design tips…
Natural sunlight provides the most accurate lighting for make-up application, so sitting by a window is a great place for your makeovers. The light needs to be able to spread evenly across your face, rather than hitting one side to avoid any shadows.
If you are applying your make-up in the evening, try to use LED lighting. This is because LED lighting closely resembles natural light. By installing LED lighting in your bathroom or around your make-up mirror, you will ensure that the light is evenly spread across your face.
Overhead lighting can cast shadows, which is not ideal when you are applying make-up. The best setting is to be seated in front of a wall hanging mirror, with bright lights on either side of it. We recommend the elegant Art Deco range of pillar lights by Davey Lighting. These are perfect for bathrooms and vanity mirrors because they can be wall mounted and some models include a dimmable driver.
As you can see there are some really simple changes you can make at home to achieve the best lighting conditions for your beauty needs.
