3 Ways to Light Your Vanity for the Best Makeup

28” LED linear bath fixturePerforming you daily cosmetics ritual can be daunting if you’re using the wrong vanity lighting. How often have you put on a full face of makeup, thinking it looked great, and then gone out into the daylight only to realize that your makeup looks completely insane? The problem is your lighting.

When lighting a bathroom vanity, the goal should be to illuminate the face evenly, without creating any shadows. You should also be looking for lighting that is neutral – not too cool, and not too warm. Here are a few ways you can achieve this:

Linear Fixtures

One of the best ways to ensure even lighting is with linear fixtures. These versatile fixtures, like the one pictured, can be mounted horizontally on either side of the mirror, or above it, depending on the size of your space and your own personal preferences. The white acrylic diffuser in this linear fixture creates a bright, clean ambience that will give you the proper illumination for creating a perfect makeup look.

Multi-Light Systems

Depending on your personal style, you may also opt for a linear arrangement of two to five individual fixtures.  These types of fixtures will still be able to provide even illumination, but offer up a different style. These fixtures are mounted above the mirror, and should be long enough to illuminate the entire width of the mirror. Choose the number of lights in the fixture based on the size of your mirror for the most ideal lighting.
