The Missguided makeup and photography studio features a number of high end Hollywood-style mirrors from Illuminated Mirrors. The studio team use these mirrors to get the best possible lighting for our models. Take at some of our top picks from the Hollywood Mirrors collection from Illuminated Mirrors and create your very own studio at home.

ALSO we have an exclusive 5% discount for Babezine readers. Use the code DIAMOND5 for money off your first order.*

Our models and makeup artists love using Hollywood Mirrors in the studio, because not only do they look good, but the lighting can be changed to suit any environment. The Tri-Colour mirrors feature a sensor that can create cool, daylight white or warm white lighting. That means no more orange undertones or blotchy foundation when you are applying your base in a dark room.

What is a Hollywood Mirror?

Hollywood mirrors feature lighting around the outside of the frame, allowing you to get the best and most natural lighting possible. They are used in professional beauty studios, but you can also buy them for your own home too.

Why choose illuminated mirrors for your home?

So if you want to create a makeup desk like the ones in the professional Missguided photography studio, why choose Illuminated Mirrors over the other options available? Here is just a few reasons that we decided to kit out our studio with them…

  1. They are made in Britain
  2. The mirrors are bespoke
  3. Lifetime warranty

1. Made in Britain. 

Illuminated Mirrors design and build all their products in the UK and have been specialising in Hollywood mirrors since 2008. They have their own in-house glass shop, production unit, a workshop and a photography studio.

2. Bespoke mirrors

Because Illuminated Mirrors actually manufacture all their own products, it means that they can make bespoke mirrors to order, create specific sizes to fit in awkward spaces or even fit businesses and salons with the exact mirrors they need. Also if you needed any more convincing, Megan Barton-Hansen has just kitted out her dressing room with one.

3. Lifetime warranty

THIS is how you know you are getting a good product for your dressing room or walk in wardrobe. Illuminated Mirrors offer a lifetime warranty on the Hollywood mirror range.
