The 7 Best Magnifying Mirrors for Women Over 50

As we age, our beauty routine ages with us. From wearing red lipstick to finding the best foundation for women over 50, finding the right product to suit us as we age is essential. But among the many beauty tips and products I can recommend, few are as important as magnifying mirrors! They enable us to apply our makeup flawlessly and in less time. From wall-mounted magnifying mirrors for your bathroom to compact magnifying mirrors for travel, scroll on to discover my current favorites. 
Honey Good discusses the best magnifying mirrors

Finding the best magnifying mirror is a game changer for your beauty routine.

2. Best Compact Magnifying Mirror for Travel: Fancii Mila Rechargeable Compact Mirror with Light 

This purse-sized magnifying mirror offers a 10x magnifying mirror as well as a 1x, and has dimmable lights to adjust to your needs. The mirror uses rechargeable batteries and includes a little velvet pouch to keep it in. I love that it comes in white, black, or pink. Perfect for reapplying lipstick or touch ups on the go!

3. Best Bathroom Magnifying Mirror: American Imaginations Stainless Steel Wall Mount Oval Mirror

I love two main features about this wall-mounted magnifying mirror that justify the splurge. First, the oval shape not only looks lovely, it complements the shape of your face when  you are applying makeup. Second, one side is a regular mirror and the other side flips to be a 3x magnifying mirror. The contemporary, brushed nickel looks great with many different bathroom styles. I also find the swivel arm of wall-mounted mirrors helpful for maintaining those fabulous brows

Find it here, $439

4. Best Wall-Mounted Magnifying Mirror: Better Living Products 8” Cosmo Double-Sided Mirror 

Yes, you can still have a wall-mounted magnifying mirror without spending a fortune, especially if you’d like an additional one in your guest room or bedroom. This one is double-sided, offering one side as a normal mirror and the other 5x magnification. And all that for around $25! 

Find it here, $25.49

5. Best 15x Magnifying Mirror: Tweezerman Mini LED 15x Compact Lighted Magnifying Mirror

It’s small but mighty: this little mirror offers excellent clarity for such a compact magnifying mirror. It has 15x magnification and suction cups. It does take batteries: four LR1 130 cell batteries, which are not included, so be sure to order up some spares for when you need it. For longer vacations this one does the trick!

This affordable suction cup 20x magnifying mirror can be mounted to any bathroom mirror or hotel room mirror, making it another great choice for a travel magnifying mirror.

    I’m looking for a 10x vanity mirror, lighted, that doesn’t distort when your a foot away, or if your up close to it for tweezing. I have had dozens mailed to my house and I return them all. I know they are out there because I have one but it doesn’t light up. Mine is 20 years old and I love it but I need the light now. I read so much about mirrors and I disagree with a lot of what is said.

      There aren’t any great mirrors, any longer. But for women with vision unlike ours these are good. You and I have to do the best we can. If you find the perfect mirror, please, please let me know and I will announce it to our women and acknowledge you. Thank you for sharing. Warmly, Honey

  2. Incorporating an audio ready to listen to clip of this article is well-received. Thank you for this list, will definitely share this write up to my mom. Best!

    I need a hand held Magnifying Makeup Mirror, have you seen that? Great post by the way.

  4. Nina says:

    Girls, I use Xiaomi Amiro. I advise you to buy this mirror because it has very good glass. https://reviews.gift/review/xiaomi-amiro

  5. Hillary says:

    I just found hand held magnifying mirrors at Bed Bath & Beyond. Just had laser cataract surgery and can’t see to put on eye makeup.

    Zadro makes the best 15 mag. mirror!

  7. Maisey R says:

    Would you comment on facial hair removers please?

    Olay made a great one but no longer does. What’s a great replacement. Self care methods only!

    What “appliance” works best? There is one advertised on tv but I think it’s just an electric shaver in a lipstick tube. Ads say you can use every day! That’s not what we ladies need. We need a hair remover not a shaver.

    What is safe, not creating more hair and easy to use?
    Please help!

      My girlfriend uses a little electric type shaver and loves it. The hair does not grow back thicker. Also, there is the old fashioned wax. I use to watch my girlfriend in college wax her face and legs. She had a tin of wax that she heated and a stick like the Doctor used to put on our tongue to see our throat. When it dried, she ripped off the wax. Two choices. I would go for #1!!! Warmly, Honey

  8. Michell Rogers says:

    I once had a Conair mirror it was a plug-in not battery operated and it was dual-sided and the magnified side was 80 times magnification I can now not find any that are above 20. What happened?
