Types of Magnifying Makeup Mirrors
Fixed Magnifying Mirrors
As mentioned in their name, fixed magnifying mirrors are ideally placed in a location. They generally have a fairly substantial size which can result in a large diameter (more than 20 cm) or in an elongated foot or body. This type of mirror is placed on a dressing table in the bathroom or in the corners of the house where you wear makeup. The models which have lighting supplied by an electrical outlet are all classified in this category. Fixed magnifying mirrors are also often heavy. Their advantage lies in the size. Indeed, they can be fitted with larger mirrors since they are not subject to dimensional constraints.
Portable Magnifying Mirrors
Unlike magnifying portable mirrors of the first category, those of this second category can be moved from one place to another in your home. Thanks to their small sizes and limited weights, they can also, without much difficulty, be carried in a bag. So you could have it handy at any time if you plan to get a makeover during the day at work or when you are out. The lighting of portable magnifying mirrors is powered by batteries placed in its base. The only drawback for this type of product will be the fairly small diameter of the mirror which does not always adapt to large magnifications (x10).
Magnifying Wall Mirrors
The latter type of magnifying wall mirrors can be fixed or portable. It will be distinguished by the suction cup arrangement at its base. It will then be possible to hang it on a vertical surface. This makes the mobility of the mirror even greater. The suction cup will only adhere to smooth, clean surfaces without aggregates such as windows, mirrors, ceramics or acrylic.
