When applying makeup on clients, relying on even, natural lighting can be a challenge. Particularly as a part time freelancer, the location and time of day I work can vary massively.
I am also keen to improve the quality of my YouTube videos and blog photography. So I decided that now is time for me to invest in a lamp; so long it is was able to meet my multipurpose requirements.
Initially I intended on buying a ring light, and there are so many option out there, but then I came across Glamcor. They have a range of lamps and lighting specifically for use in the beauty industry.
The lamp I wanted was the Classic Elite 2, however I found the Glamcor Classic Revolution in a clearance sale for almost $100 cheaper. The Classic Revolution is designed for use over treatment beds (e.g. perfect for brow feathering, facials etc) but is essentially exactly the same as the Classic Elite, but with different length lamp arms.
Both the Glamcor Classic Revolution & Elite 2 lamps have crisp 5,600K HD daylight lighting. The LED lamps do not get hot, meaning no ‘cool down’ period before packing away. The lamp is completely adjustable with flexible lamp arms, 360 degree rotating lamp heads and a telescopic tripod. It’s also designed to be portable, packs down into a carry case that straps on to your makeup trolley, and only weighs 2kgs.
I can easily adjust my Glamcor lamp to be face height to clients in my makeup chair, or for when I’m recording YouTube videos. I can also angle it to photograph flat lays for my blog. It’s perfect for my needs, and I couldn’t be happier.
