The Best Magnifying Mirrors for Women Over 50

Honey Good discusses the best magnifying mirrors

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.



Conair - Satin Chrome LED Vanity Magnifying Mirror

I love the lighting on this Conair magnifying mirror. Not only are the lights energy efficient, saving up to 70% more energy than most mirrors, but they boast a lifetime guarantee so you’ll never have to change the bulb. The satin chrome finish make it the perfect addition to a chic bathroom. At only $39.99 I think it really is one of the best magnifying mirrors out there on the market.

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.

Honey Good's signature

  1. 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.

    1. 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. 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.
