This smart mirror senses your face coming towards it and glows with natural light as you apply your makeup.


Getting the right lighting conditions for applying your makeup can be a nightmare. And what can look like a tasteful, natural face of makeup in your bedroom mirror in the morning can often end up looking like the makings of a tribal war mask in the lighting of your work toilets.

>>> This smart mirror takes the ultimate selfie, and more besides…

But future makeup disasters will now be averted thanks to this SimpleHuman Wide-View Sensor Mirror. A trifold vanity mirror with proximity sensors and a pair of Tru-Lux lighting strips, the Sensor Mirror lights up when it sees your face, and glows with the natural hues of daylight for easy-peasy makeup applying. Perfect.

The Sensor Mirror also connects to an app on your phone to let you customise its daylight glow remotely, which is useful for different times of day, or maybe if you’re removing your makeup at the end of the day and you’re not so fussed about seeing your face that clearly.

There’s extra disaster relief in the form of a scenic selfie feature, which lets you snap a vanity shot in various locations of your choice to check your makeup will hold up to scrutiny when you leave the house. And speaking of exiting the building, the mirror will turn itself off when you disappear from view, which is handy when you’re in a rush.

The Sensor Mirror gets its power from a rechargeable battery that you can juice up with a power cord. A single charge should give it about three weeks of life.

You can bag yourself this super-smart looking glass for $400 (£276) from SimpleHuman.
