Every day you start your morning in your bathroom, you do your routine, take a bath , do your hairstyles and get pretty. So let’s talk about the perfect environment and especially bathroom’s light!
In the case of your morning makeup routine, the most important beauty booster isn’t actually your makeup—it’s your light bulb. Every cosmetic product advertises benefits that range from a sun-kissed bronze glow to sultry eyes, but without the right lighting, you will not the “look”.
The best lighting for makeup application is natural sunlight, but on gloomy days or in dark rooms, the right light bulb is the next best thing. Selecting light bulbs may seem straightforward in theory, but finding exactly what you need can be dificult—especially for bathroom or vanity lighting. When choosing light bulbs for the best makeup application, be sure look for the CRI (Color Rendering Index) number on the packaging. The higher the CRI number, the closer the bulb is to providing true and natural light. For the perfect morning makeover, purchase a bulb with a CRI of 90 or higher.
Light bulbs with dimming capabilities are ideal for makeup application. The dimming switch will allow you to see what your makeup will look like in various settings, from your meeting in a brightly lit conference room to the dinner party on a lantern-lit rooftop.

Of course, getting the bulbs is only half the battle: Position the light source to shine on you directly from the front for ideal results; lighting from above or below will cast shadows that won’t let you accurately see what you are doing. So consider sconces on either side of a bathroom mirror or vanity to create even light and help you avoid major makeup mess-ups.
