Technology, you're a wondrous thing.
Case in point?
This recently revealed voice-activated, light-adjusting makeup mirror from Alibaba, aka the TMall Genie Queen.
According to Technode, the TMall Genie Queen can adjust to different light settings, so that no matter where you are you can get a good look at your face.
At work under harsh fluorescent lighting? No worries! At the park watching the kids play and need to touch up your lippy or check out a zit? Good as gold. In a bar after far too many drinks and want to make sure you're still as hot four hours in as you were when you started? Just pull this big beauty out of your teeny weeny clutch and you're good to go!
All jokes aside (and really, with the mirror alone standing at eight inches tall, you're hardly going to be carting this around), this mirror sounds like a god send for those days when you're trying to get your makeup done but can't get good enough light to ensure you're not going to be waltzing out of the house with badly blended blusher or lashings of obvious foundation lines.
Apparently the mirror also has the ability to also tell you the weather, offer beauty tips, and even control air con (don't ask me how, that's way too tech-y for me...), so all-in-all it could be a welcome addition to your beauty set-up.
Want to get your hands on it? Sorry to say it's not yet released, but after buying an LED mirror and finding it not all that great, this is the kind of beauty tech I'm hoping becomes more readily available.
