Once a week, I write about beauty. My tips have been well received which led me to think that I’ve been remiss in mentioning the absolute, hands down, most important tip for looking gorgeous after 50… the best magnifying mirrors so that you can see what you’re doing, Darlings! I hope you get a chuckle over this tip and yet, at our age, you probably know that I’m very serious.
Here are the best magnifying mirrors to try…
We all know how amazing Tweezerman tweezers are, but so are their mirrors; especially this magnifying mirror. It’s perfect for travel as well. From applying makeup to putting your contacts in, to tweezing those stray brows, never miss a thing with the crystal clear image and illuminating perimeter.

I adore lighted magnifying mirrors, but sometimes the lights aren’t natural. That isn’t a concern with this mirror by Simplehuman. The lights simulate natural sunlight so one never has to worry about unblended or uneven makeup again. The lights are also rechargeable so this is the perfect mirror for traveling and they are even motion sensored, so they’ll automatically turn on when it’s time for you to use it. This mirror is a bit more expensive, at $162, but it has built-in LED lights and has 10x magnification.
This mirror gives you the best of both worlds with two magnifying sides. Side one has 1x magnification, perfect for applying makeup with precision while side two has 10x magnification for tweezing. Plus this mirror mounts to your wall so that you never need to work about knocking it over on your makeup counter..
Do you use a magnifying mirror? If so, what do you think are the best magnifying mirrors? Do tell!
