You’re not homely, you’re just looking at yourself in the wrong light. Imagine if you could go from a five to a seven with a flick of a switch, wouldn’t your day be better? Well, literally, you can.
A ring light illuminates your face in a perfect light balance, so your face doesn’t appear unbalanced or flat. If you have a light source that illuminates you from just one angle, it will cast tiny shadows that throws off the visual symmetry of your face. This will be even more pronounced if you have any facial scaring, from acne or an injury, or sagging skin.
Ring light will allow you to better apply your makeup, important if you are a beauty vlogger on Youtube or it’s just important for you to apply makeup in perfect proportion. Professional makeup application involves a complex combination of different shades and foundations, so your light needs to illuminate your face in the best way possible.
Alright, so now you have ring light, but it’s awkward to use in front of the mirror. The best way to use a ring light for applying your make-up, is having it directly in front of you.
Here’s what you need to mount a ring light on your mirror:
An 18” ring light (I paid $80 on Amazon)
Strong foam tape (I used Apartment Tape)
A clean mirror, free of “Windex” type cleaner
