correct lighting

Regular cosmetics and permanent make up

correct lighting

Postby joyf » Thu Aug 21, 2008 7:04 pm

I need some help/ideas if anyone has any.
I am trying to put on make-up right now in the morning before class (I'm in college here). Where I am staying while in college, I'm having to put on my make-up in my bed-room - not bathroom.

The lighting isn't the same though, and it's so early in the morning and so dark outside. I use my desk that has my computer on it, so it doesn't give me a lot of room to go buy a big lighted mirror or something good like that to use....

Does anybody know of something I could purchase or use of some sort of lighted mirror that would fit in a small area standing up or any other suggestions to help. I just look one way early in the morning before leaving - and as soon as it gets light outside, it doesn't look the same way, and I know it's the lighting.

It's a blessing to have this room while I'm in college, if I could just figure out the best way to put on my make up - a make up mirror I don't know about that would fit perfect? Everything is so big that I have seen so far.

OR any ideas on what would work best? Thanks.

Thanks annemarie -

there is, but it's really early in the morning so there is no light outside! I do have a great big lighted magnified mirror already that I actually bought at Walmart a long time ago (plug it in - it's great - totally forgot about until I was cleaning. ) :)
- it's just way to big for the limited space I have.

It's a blessing getting to stay where I am staying... $$ wise while I'm in school, so I'm working around things :wink:

I'll KEEP searching also for a smaller one that's lighted that will fit where I can put it on my desk - or like you said, I could always go sneak in w/no make up (YIKES :shock: ) and run to the bathroom first thing hopefully not scare anybody if they see me w/no make up on :lol:

Thanks -

when I stayed at the hyatt they had the most awesome makeup mirror in the bath-attached to the wall...lighted and magnified.It was a conair lighted makeup mirror.I found it on ebay or 60., probably sells for over 100.I also attached a tiny 15times magnifier with magnets to it for SUPER close up when I am doing detail makeup.

beeguy, I must have this missed this one . umm. I THINK NOT on this one. :) no make up? That made me smile. (Oh and now I see what kind you are referring to.)

lollipop: thank you for information. That sounds great! I have never heard of something like that. A lighted mirror and magnified mirror attached to the wall? Now that's to cool. I'm checking that one for sure.

Are you alone in the room? Do your makeup sitting on the bed with the big lighted mirror and store it under the bed or in the closet. I do that at home. The mirror I have has a *daylight* setting. I think I got it either at walgreens or walmart. GL!

look there. You ask a question and get all sorts of great ideas. Thanks!

I was used to my apartment before college ...
Now 90% of my stuff is in storage and it's so different. :roll:

beeguy I found that mirror today on ebay you were talking about. :)

Thanks for all the ideas!
