Correspondingly, how many lumens do you need for a makeup mirror?
Light temperature is up to an optimal 6500k which is perfect for makeup. Easy installation. Touch button switch on the mirror to dim the lights. 300 – 5000 lumens depending upon which size you select and also how much you have it dimmed.
One may also ask, how many watts should a vanity mirror be? Only then do I suggest a fixture for over the mirror. It should be placed 75 to 80 inches above the floor and, like all vanity lighting, contain at least 150 watts — ideally spread over a fixture that's at least 24 inches long so that the light will wash evenly over the hair and face.
Correspondingly, what is the best lighting for a vanity mirror?
The best condition for applying makeup is a warm or natural light source. Natural sunlight provides the most accurate reflection of your face, but for those cloudy days when fresh rays aren't an option, warm white light, like LED, is the next best thing.
How wide should vanity light be compared to mirror?
The ideal width is at least 28 inches apart, and centered at 60 inches above the floor. If you choose to place your lights above the mirror, the width of your fixture should be at least 1/3 the width of the vanity mirror, but should never exceed its total width.
