Have you watched one of those “No Mirror Makeup Challenge” Videos on YouTube?
They are popular. Love watching them. Their number of views ranges from 2 million to 10 million. Interestingly, I find two recurring themes in those videos:
Those beautiful vloggers aren’t confident with applying makeup without a mirror. They are self-conscious and super anxious to see if they did a good job and how they look.
How many times do you look at yourself in the mirror?
Think about the number of times in a day you look at yourself in the mirror (or any reflective surfaces). Do you sometimes ask yourself why?
A study by UK-based lifestyle brand Avaj revealed that men look at their reflection 23 times a day compared to women who glance at the mirror 16 times a day.
Men confessed to ‘mainly’ looking at their appearance to admire themselves and the body parts they like the most.
By contrast, majority of women surveyed said they looked at their appearance for reassurance that they look OK (for example, their makeup is in place). Women also said they spent time in front of the mirror looking at the body parts they are most self-conscious about.
Another study by U.K-based company Simple Skincare indicated that majority of women feel compelled to consistently check their appearance throughout the day. Half of the women surveyed said they wouldn’t leave their homes without some sort of mirror.
Another UK survey revealed that two-thirds of women found the prospect of going to work without makeup to be more stressful than a job interview or a first date. Seventy percent reported that they wouldn’t got to the office without makeup on.
The Importance of the Vanity Mirror
As you can see, women are deeply self-conscious about the way they look and those flaws that the mirror magnifies. Having a vanity mirror boosts self-confidence and self-esteem. Ultimately, it can help reduce stress.
The vanity mirror is an essential everyday-use personal grooming mirror that is used to check your appearance, do your hair, apply makeup and basically assist you to look your best. Vanity mirror is often referred to as the makeup mirror.
Vanity mirrors come in a variety of shapes, sizes, forms and functionality. Vanity mirrors can be wall-mounted, free-standing, or a portable travel vanity mirror that you can carry with you wherever you go. There are vanity mirrors for the bathroom, bedroom, and they can be used as a beautiful home decor. Vanity mirror with the lights is the best for women to apply makeup.
Vanity mirrors are not only functional but can be a beautiful home decor, complementing your vanity home decor theme. You can buy a vanity home decor set or even be creative and do it yourself (DIY).
