I don’t like to admit it, but my eyesight is just not what it used to be. Call it too much screen time or call it a normal part of the aging process… I now need glasses to see close up! Usually, my reading glasses are not a problem. I got some black geek-chic, square frames that are pretty darned cute. And, I don’t even mind being seen in public wearing them! The problem is really when I try to put on my makeup. I never fully appreciated how difficult this is for those who wear glasses. Is my foundation blended enough? How straight is that eyeliner? Is my lipstick smudged? Heck if I know! So, I recently installed a nifty 8″ Wall Mounted Magnifying Mirror.
Although I feel a little like Snow White’s evil stepmother when I gaze into it, the magnification really helps! One side is normal magnification and one side is 8x magnification. The first time I used it I was shocked! Are my pores really that big? Is that gray hair? It was enough to send me running from the bathroom!
Once I got used to the magnification, I found that this mirror is something I simply can’t do without. It’s mounted to the wall at just my height and has a convenient bi-fold arm that extends 14″. It also has a swivel for tricky jobs like plucking eyebrows.
The 8″ Wall-Mounted Magnifying Mirror is available at Bed, Bath and Beyond. Retail: $39.99 (and worth every penny!)
