When it comes to makeup artistry and how the look appears in photography and video, great lighting can make or break the entire look! That's why we teamed up with the Ilios Lighting Team for an Instagram Live (view the entire demo below!) to show their lighting solutions in action and to unveil their newest arrivals, the travel-friendly versions of their best selling Ilios Beauty Ring.
There's a reason Kim Kardashian told them it's "literally the best makeup light I have ever seen!"
The NEW Rechargeable Table Mirror offers true color daylight for makeup application on the go. It easily detaches from the base for travel.
This NEW revolutionary wall mirror and light can be mounted without needing nearby electricity due to its long-lasting rechargeable battery.

Why Great Lighting is Important for Makeup Application
Cameras have come a long way for film and television, but even cell phone cameras can take images and video in 4K! It's no wonder many people feel the need to use filters, but with the proper lighting, you won't need it.
That's where Ilios comes in. The Founders (who are also world-class experts in makeup artistry, photography, and lighting) wanted to create lighting that mimicked the beautiful natural window-lighting we all crave on those beautiful sunny days. It's perfectly diffused, softened by the window glass, and perfect for makeup application and photography.
Their Beauty Ring (and their newest products) offers the most accurate daylight lighting in portable ring light, but it goes beyond that! It also offers a warmer setting and a "blend" setting to help adjust the lighting in any environment you're in, and it offers five brightness levels to ensure you're applying makeup in the same type of lighting environment where you'll be filming, photographed, or in for an event.
Why It's important to use the proper lighting level and temperature while doing makeup
Imagine you apply makeup with a standard light with only one temperature (let's say, cool), but you're filming video or being photographed in a candlelit room - the makeup that was so skillfully applied will look completely different. With the Ilios Beauty Ring and its lighting options, you can set the light to be the same lighting and intensity you'll be in during the event while being filmed or photographed, or even while going live, to ensure you look your best!
