Now that you are prepared to see your skin at such high magnification, here are some tips to help you make the most of your prep time:

Have you ever felt like you just can’t get close enough to your mirror to get that makeup on? Or if you just can’t see well enough to get that perfectly clean shave? In these cases, what you need is to get yourself a magnifying mirror. These mirrors are made to magnify up to 10x the actual size for greater precision in self-grooming.

Few things are more mortifying that a blemish that crops up right before a big event, whether it’s a first date, a job interview or the day of the big presentation. Though it’s hard to predict when breakouts will happen, it is easy to plan for them. All you need is a great concealer, a good makeup brush or sponge and a magnifying mirror. Yes, you need a mirror that will broadcast that pimple in high definition. Otherwise, it might not get the coverage it begs for.

If you magnify it, you’ll surely see where your attention – and cover up – is needed most. And with this giant zit staring you in the face, you’ll be able to blend your makeup with precision and skill reserved for professionals. If you have bright lights on your mirror, use them. They’ll help spotlight the problem, as if it’s not obvious enough, and help you camouflage the offending article.

By seeing your skin close up, you may be surprised by its color and condition. So many women wear the wrong color foundation, because they found one they liked ten years ago, and haven’t changed. The problem is, their skin has. Now they wear “ivory” on skin that needs “sun kissed glow.” Since half the battle is finding a color that will neatly and completely cover your spot, it’s important to know what you’re working with in the first place.

By dabbing and brushing or sponging carefully, you’ll be able to blend the makeup over your pimple and seamlessly into the surrounding skin. Without a magnifying mirror, it’s more likely to look like a bump caked with makeup. With one, it will be easier to do a flawless job of covering the area, and as a result, you’ll be the only one who knows that under the smooth, impeccable finish of your skin lies an angry, red spot. Furthermore, after you cover one zit to your satisfaction, you’ll wonder how you ever got along without one.

Once you get your skin under control and your breakouts covered, you can go back to worrying about more important things, like whether or not there is spinach in your teeth.

In all seriousness, a good source for magnification, whether it is from a pair of glasses or a handheld pocket magnifying glass will make your mornings and days easier. Sometimes you don’t know how much it can help until you are using one. Browse around and you just may find the perfect magnifier for your needs.
