The #1 Key to Applying Makeup (and you already have it.)
The NUMBER ONE key to your makeup looking good is pretty simple – proper lighting.
The number one place to find it? In front of a window. For approximately zero dollars. Or – perhaps in your (parked) car after you get to work 15 mins early (me).
Furthermore, and this makes me CRAZY, it seems like every hotel I stay at has a mirror attached to a wall in a poorly lit bathroom. I always end up doing my makeup by the window out of a tiny compact mirror.
This is why I was PSYCHED that while staying at The Westin Monache Resort in Mammoth over the weekend, there was a large mirror I could take out to the living room and apply my makeup in the natural light. I searched for a similar mirror online, and found one from Home Depot. It’s sleek, simple and two sided, with one side @ 5x magnification – which is great if you like to get up close for a good scare. It also adjusts in height, which is kind of amazing. You can find it here.
So, thank you Westin. You get me.
