Best Makeup Mirrors – Quick Introduction

In one word, makeup mirrors are essential. For decades they’ve been an unmissable tool in any woman’s beauty arsenal and as the years go by they just keep getting better and better. Read along to find out the best makeup mirrors available today!
Their versatility, reduced price-tags and small size (when compared to vanities) made them shoot up in popularity – anyone can have one and place/move them wherever they want without space restraints.
To further value themselves, they almost always offer magnification options to help you nail the details of your makeup or make very precise activities such as tweezing a breeze. A lot of them also feature light rings to bring more visibility and ease into your beauty routine, which is especially useful in dimly lit rooms.

With all of these handy features presented in a portable and affordable package, it’s easy to see why makeup mirrors are so popular.

There are two types of makeup mirrors – standing and wall-mounted.
I’ve created a list of the very best ones (of each type and with lighted and unlighted options) that I’ve used over the years. I wrote in-depth reviews for each mirror and also created a comparison table so you can get to know the essential qualities of the mirrors quickly and easily. I’m sure this will be a tremendous help in finding the perfect makeup mirror for you. You can read them by clicking the links below:

While both types have their own pros and cons it ultimately comes down to personal preference.
Whatever type you like the best, I promise that together we’ll find the perfect one for you.
I’ll give you a quick introduction and my recommendation for each type below (recommendations were taken from the full articles above). 


Wall-mounted makeup mirrors usually look slicker and take up no space on a table/cabinet. Plus, they are often put at eye-level, making them extremely comfortable to use (no need to look down/sit down or level it up). I recommend the incredible Gurun wall-mounted makeup mirror shown below:

GURUN 8.5 Inch LED Lighted Wall Mount Makeup Mirror with 10x Magnification,Gold Finish M1809DJ(8.5in,10x) $$

Stunning in every way – quality, looks and price. This Gurun mirror offers you excellent design, built-to-last construction and a crystal-clear double-sided 8.5″ mirror face (1x/10x magnification) that is surrounded with bright LED lights. All of this at an incredible price.

Tabletop makeup mirrors (also called standing) have the upper-hand on portability and installation (since it requires none), it’s nice to know that you can place it anywhere you want without worrying about holes and screws. Also, sometimes they plainly work better/look better than the other type on a given room (for example, if no good walls/corners are available). I recommend the Zadro standing mirror shown below:

Zadro Dimmable Sunlight Vanity Mirror, Satin Nickel, 10X-1X $$

The Zadro Sunlight mirror stays true to its name – it gives off a radiant and bright, true to life light. With a 7.5″ double-sided mirror face that offers 1x and potent 10x magnification, it’s perfect to ace the details of your makeup. With a sturdy body and great price to boot, it’s a wonderful choice.

I’ve owned dozens of these and my collection keeps growing (you may call it an addiction!). Due to this I have extensive experience on just what brands, types and models themselves are the very best. Throughout the years I’ve built up a list of my favorite makeup mirrors that I now gladly and excitedely share with you. All of this to make it as easy as possible for you to know which one will be your next one and to make sure that you will love it.
I truly hope I’ve helped and remember, if you have any questions or want to give your opinion, don’t hesitate to leave a comment below. Thank you!

    I don’t want to sound overly dramatic but that wall-mounted beauty is to die for. I already fell in love with it, don’t even need to see the others! Thank you Joan xoxo
