When it comes to applying makeup, natural lighting is the best way to go. Unfortunately, not all of our homes are blessed with large windows, let alone loads of light. To help out with your makeup-lighting woes, we found the best lighted mirrors for flawless makeup application every time.

As I’m sure you know, lighting is of the utmost importance when applying makeup. You might have all the right beauty products, but if your environment is too dark, you’ll likely have a foundation ring around your jawline, go too heavy on the bronzer, or miss a blending opportunity or two. To make sure your makeup is nearly flawless every single day, we’ve rounded up the best lighted makeup mirrors for your cosmetic convenience. Keep reading for the market's top-rated makeup mirrors with lights, as well as a few of our personal favorites.
