When traveling, its imperative to have a good portable travel mirror. If your glamping, staying in hostels, or Air Bnbing, you have no idea if you'll have a well lit mirror for you to apply your makeup. If you bring the perform travel mirror, you never have to worry about finding the perfect lighting, its even great for makeup touchups on the airplane (lighting is horrible on the plane!)

I've already reviewed the best travel hot rollers and the best travel jewelry organizers, below are my top 10 picks for the best travel makeup mirrors!​

HOW TO CHOOSE THE PERFECT TRAVEL MAKEUP MIRROR

Magnification Level

Is the mirror magnified 1X, 7X, 10X or more? I found out for you, and also let you know if it is a dual sided mirror featuring a real mirror on one side.

Weight

You'll definitely want to consider the weight of the mirror to see how portable it is for travel. A heavy mirror could tip you over the baggage weight restrictions.

# of Styles

I found out how many batteries each of the mirrors needs to operate.

THE BEST TRAVEL MAKEUP MIRROR

Upper West Collection - 7x Lighted Makeup Mirror

5X, 7X, or 10X

3 AA Batteries

8.3" x 3.5" x 8.3"

N/A

My top choice for best travel mirror is  from Upper West Collection. It features an LED light that gives off a very natural light and will last for over 50,000 hours. It also comes with a free travel bag including a separate pouch for batteries. 

I love the suction cup which can stick onto all kinds of surfaces and the mirror rotates 360 degrees for you to get the perfect angle. This mirror is so great that there are cheap knockoffs of this mirror, beware of those! The screen is 6 inches with 7x magnification and fits your entire face. 

This mirror is perfectly sized for you to apply makeup and foundation to your face, with great magnification for when you are tweezing your brows or applying eyeliner. It's also fog free. The light is diffused and you can see your entire face even at 7x magnification. This is #1 choice for the best travel makeup mirror!

Fancii - 10X Magnifying Lighted Makeup Mirror

10X Magnification

3 AA Batteries

6.3" x 6.3" x 0.8"

10.1 ounces

Next up is a makeup mirror from Fancii which features 10 x magnification and 360 rotation. Its perfect if you prefer a square shape to the typical round mirror shape. It measures 5.2 inch wide and comes with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. 

The very natural LED light is 30% brighter and uses 60% less energy than your standard bulbs. It features a Easy-Lock suction mechanism and you can just twist it to remove the suction from the surface. It requires three AA batteries and is totally wireless.

This mirror is not waterproof so don't use it in the shower. It's made of plastic material and is nice and durable. I like that it comes with a nice velvet travel bag and a cleaning cloth. The suction cup has a strong hold so you don't have to worry about the mirror toppling over on your face! This is a great pick for a square travel mirror.

ZDU - Led Lighted Compact Travel Makeup

2X & 1X Magnification

No Batteries Needed

3.3" x 5.1 "

N/A

The ZDU travel makeup mirror is different from all the other mirrors on this list. It's in the style of a compact, but its rectangular and meant to be hand-held. It's available in two colors: black and white and measures 3.3 inches in width and 5.1 inches in length.

This travel mirror features two mirrors, one which is a regular mirror and one with a 2X magnification. 8 LED lights are featured with this mirror. This is the perfect travel mirror, it fits in your purse, briefcase, luggage, anywhere. You can easily pop it out while on an airplane to bring some natural light into dimly lit situations. 

It has a folding design that allows you to use the mirror hands free. The lights are not dimmable, although they are adjustable and are activated with a soft touch power button. This is quite a durable little mirror and you can carry it in your purse or luggage without worrying about it getting damaged or broken

Fancii - Daylight LED 10X Magnifying Makeup

10X Magnification

3 AA Batteries

6 inches wide

8.8 ounces

Fancii is featured again on this list this time with a circular travel mirror. It's quite similar to the other mirror except for the difference in shape. It features a natural LED light featuring 14 eco-friendly and efficient lights. It also features the 10x magnification, 6 inch screen, 360 swivel and cordless since its takes batteries

The mirror has a chrome finish and when its all folded up it takes up less than 1/2 square ft of space which is perfect for travel. Make sure you have at least 3.5" X 3.5" if space for the mirror to suction properly. The mirror works on other mirrors, enamel, and ceramic but won't adhere to wallpaper or stucco or other textured walls.

Once you get the suction cup adhered to the wall, it could stay up for as long as several weeks. This mirror has no distortion areas and takes up minimal room in your luggage. I like that the lighting is turned up and down with a dimmer switch so you can get the perfect level of light that you prefer.

Floxite 10x - Lighted Folding Vanity & Travel Mirror

10X or 12X 

4 AA Batteries

6.8" x 2.5" x 6.5"

1.5 lbs

Floxite's Vanity and Travel mirror features a dual-sided rotating mirror which is awesome because it features a 1X mirror on one side that reflects your face true to light. The other side features the 10X magnification mirror on the other side, perfect for closeups to apply makeup.

The mirror features 5 1/4 inches of distortion free glass, the diameter included the ring is 6 1/4 inches. The LEDs should last 30,000 hours and the mirror can be tilted to any angle that you need. This is a cordless mirror operating on batteries only but if you need a cord, you can purchase it separately. 

This mirror doesn't come with a case but we recommended purchasing a cd case to easily store the mirror. I also love that the height is adjustable which is not common in most travel mirrors. This mirror is a little heavier than most and is also available in 12X magnification. If you need a height adjustable mirror, this one from Floxite is a great pick!

Sanheshun - Magnifying Lighted Travel Makeup Mirror

7X or 10X

3 AA Batteries

9.1" x 3.4"x 8.3"

12 ounces

Sanheshun's Magnifying Lighted Travel Makeup Mirror comes in two magnifications 7X and 10X. It comes with 16 efficient, top of the line LED lights and the light lasts for 10,000 hours. When lit up it produces 475 lux light and features a dimmable light which you press and hold to turn on and off.

This mirror comes with the standard 360 swivel head and suction cup. It uses 3 AA batteries which are not included. This mirror from Sanheshun is backed with a 100% no questions asked money back guarantee. It has a polished chrome finish. Note that when you are trying to use the suction cup, you have to kind of swivel the head to get the vaccuum effect to activate. 

This is a great bargain priced mirror and you don't need to use the suction cup, you can just sit it on top of a table if thats more convenient for you. The light is tap activated and dimmable to your optimal light setting.
