What is the best kind of lighting to put on makeup?

Lighting plays a big role in makeup and in your house in general. Getting the exact, correct light for everything we do in life can be tough.

 Natural light is the best to put on makeup. Nothing will give you a more accurate glimpse than light from the sun, but it needs to brighten your face evenly. For makeup application, you need diffused, ambient light so that there are no shadows highlighted on the face. So if you’re near a window, look straight into the light instead of letting it hit one angle of your face, and use a handheld mirror if necessary.

If you do not have natural light in your bathroom and that is where you usually apply your makeup, then I highly recommend GE Reveal 75-watt energy efficient halogen light bulbs. These halogen bulbs, mimic the pure rays of the sun.

Avoid yellow, rose, and fluorescent lights.
