I got a ring light yesterday and a few people have been asking me about it so, I said I would write a review.
I have decided that for 2018 I am going to start doing some more creative looks on my Instagram page rather than your average every day makeup all the time. I recently moved apartment and our lighting isn’t great. I have been saying for ages that I wanted to get a ring light and this felt like the perfect time.
After watching some reviews on Youtube I decided to go with the brand ‘Neewer’ and I purchased it off Amazon.
I got the Camera Photo Video Lighting kit which included:
- An 18 inch ring light
- An adjustable stand
- A ball head (you can connect any professional cameras to this)
- A smartphone holder (if you are using a phone instead of a camera)
- White and Orange filter colour set (the white gives you a bright natural light and the orange gives you a warm toned light)
- Diffuser (to soften any harshness coming from the light)
I was able to get next day delivery and it came in a reusable case so it is easy to carry around.
The light is very bright and at first I thought there is no way I will be able to take any pictures without squinting but then I just got used to it and it was fine.
As you can see from my pictures below the first is an old image, its fine but its a bit dull and you cant see the colours of the makeup very well. The second is a lot brighter and more professional looking.
The ring light that I got only has one light setting so, I can’t make it higher or lower but, I think its current brightness is perfect anyway.
I am using the white filter because it shows the true colouring and I find the orange one gives you a bit of a red/pink tint to your face.
