Have you ever left a hotel restroom convinced your makeup looked decent only to realize something is way off? The hotel mirror isn’t deceiving you; proper lighting is essential for a makeup routine. Every beauty devotee, regardless of skill level, can benefit from setting up a lighted mirror on their vanity. For makeup enthusiasts, these mirrors usually have strong light bulbs and adjustable shade temperatures to ensure your makeup looks as flawless as the application. Smaller, magnifying mirrors are ideal for perfectionists who have mastered the brow clean-up in between salon visits, or for those who can’t bear the sight of pesky hair on their chin.

Whether you’re on the hunt for the missing piece to your beauty influencer vanity or simply want to take your makeup game up a notch, scroll down for the 15 best makeup mirrors that are worth every dime.
