Whether you’re a bonafide makeup junkie or just starting out, there’s something we all have in common — we need a mirror to beat our face. And while you could settle for one that lights up and gets the job done, why not go all out and pick up a mirror specially designed to help you get the best results? Whether that means a vanity that plays music so you can get in the right mood or a mirror that assesses the moisture levels in your skin, there are quite a few options that will give your daily makeup routine a little boost.
