I bought this light for headshots - and was pleasantly surprised when I found out that it also comes with a mirror and can be used as a vanity style light for makeup application too. (not sure about all the other female photogs out there, but I find it hard to do subtle makeup that won't smudge across my face while I'm shooting/sweating especially on wedding days. ) This light is great for really detailed subtle makeup application so that you can go shoot without feeling bare-faced, but also not have so much makeup on that it smudges across the back of the camera. Love the catch lights this light throws, as well as the ability to dim, and play with the temperature of the light. I wish I had bought it sooner.
