Virtually every mirror includes 1x magnification so you can see yourself normally, and the most common is anywhere between 3x and 5x magnification, which is perfect for tasks like applying your favorite foundation or lipstick. If you’re taking on more precise challenges like tweezing your eyebrows or removing peach fuzz with a dermaplaning tool, 10x magnification or even 20x magnification comes in handy.

Mirror size

In an ideal world, you’d have unlimited counter space to work with—but for many of us, that’s just not the case. Compact mirrors take up virtually no space and can slip into your bag for on-the-go makeup reapplication, while some countertop options are foldable to take up less space when not in use. If you’re really stretched for room, wall-mounted options might be your best bet.

Light temperature

Plenty of lighted vanity mirrors feature LED lights—something experts say is worth it, because they best mimic natural light. Many are dimmable and can cast multiple temperatures, including daylight, warm light, and cool light.

Fun features

You don’t need to be an influencer to want to record your beauty routine. Thanks to a new generation of LED makeup mirrors with built-in phone holders and chargers, it’s never been easier to film yourself in action or to follow along with a makeup TikTok tutorial. Smart mirrors can analyze skin and point out red or dry spots, and the most advanced even connect to the internet and have Bluetooth speakers in case you want to play music or listen to a podcast in the background.
