There are 3 main groups that the Bathroom LED Lighting is classified into;
- Warm White
- Cool White
For the majority of people, LED lights on the higher end of the spectrum would be considered less popular because of the “blue tinge” that is produced. This is a common misconception, as having ‘cool white’ LED lighting actually gives you the clearest and best lighting, especially on the face. Warm white is great for bigger living spaces where you would like to give the room the ambiance of warmth, and an inviting sense. However, for bathrooms where you want the space to look and feel clean, there has been lengthy research conducted that says ‘daylight’ LED lighting is the Best Lighting For Makeup.
Our Remer Mirrors come in Warm White, Cool White, and Daylight color temperature. On the Kelvin scale, our best seller range Sphere and Otto are 6500K. Whilst our Remer Mirrors are on the higher end of the Kelvin scale, our mirrors don’t produce the overwhelming “blue tinge” that many people try to steer clear of due to being on the cusp of ‘Daylight’. Many of our bathroom mirror models are also backlit, with the lighting pouring through the sandblasted frosted glass to give it an opaque look
DAYLIGHT OR WARM WHITE OR COOL WHITE FOR BATHROOM
In terms of makeup application, sticking with a ‘daylight’ or ‘cool white’ LED-lit mirror is key for an even application for makeup during the day.
‘Warm white’ can make the face appear more yellow than it truly is, resulting in a patchy or too heavy make-up application. We recommend using warm white lighting when applying makeup for a night out to the movies, or a candle-lit dinner.
‘Daylight’ color temperature is perfect for applying makeup for spending a day outdoors or having lunch with friends.
‘Cool white’ color temperature is best used for a day spent in the office or classroom.
Most makeup artists have now invested in what is called an ‘LED Ring Light’ which is essentially a ring of LED globes that are between 5500K – 6500K on the Kelvin scale. This is used because it mimics daylight for an even makeup application, and it also helps you take better selfies may I add!
So, if you’re looking for the best-lighted mirror out there for better makeup application and a cleaner look of your bathroom space, stick with a ‘daylight’ lighted mirror and you won’t go wrong.
