Hi lovelies, which lighting option is better for my Hollywood Mirrors (that i got from below website) if I'm mainly using it for make-up stuff? Warm or Cool?

Also, do you suggest that I mix both warm and cool? Why or why not?

Cool LED lighting too bright or harsh can easily lead to makeup over-application. Natural white light bulbs are the best to use.

Don't purchase bulbs with high lumens or wattage, you want a softer, even and diffused lighting.

You don't want to use fluorescent, rose or yellow lighting.

Whatever you do don't mix two colours! Buy daylight bulbs, leds if you want to use less energy. ... ght-bulbs/
