According to The Guardian, “Some will say it makes them feel more confident, that they don’t feel completely ‘done’ without it.”

Sunlight is probably the best source to light your face while applying makeup. The best mirror and light setups can be costly. You can still find affordable mirrors with vanity lights to apply your make up with class.
