Yes, the Y2K aesthetic is big right now — especially when it comes to home decor and makeup. But as an actual early 2000s girlie, there’s something majorly missing in your campy, nostalgic collection: An LED tri-fold makeup mirror.

While the LED makeup mirror is still around, none are as perfect as the Jerdon Tri-Fold Two-Sided Makeup Mirror with Lights. If you didn’t already own this makeup mirror in grade school, you most definitely used your friend’s at a sleepover and immediately started saving up your babysitting money.

Besides the very Y2K white rectangular look, the Jerdon Tri-Fold Two-Sided Makeup Mirror with Lights is the best because it comes with multiple LED-colored light settings. I know it sounds a little too campy to be functional, but believe me when I say that this LED makeup mirror helped me avoid the terrible makeup years in middle school.

As mentioned above, this model has a normal mirror with an extra-magnified mirror on the other side, two fold-out mirrors and four different LED light settings: Day, evening, office and home. Because there’s so much goodness in this makeup mirror, here is a list of things you can use it for:

  1. Tweeze your eyebrows.
  2. Light your very own music video shoot.
  3. Match your foundation to your neck.
  4. Take moody mirror pics.
  5. Pop a zit.
  6. Attempt winged eyeliner.
  7. Finally get that popcorn kernel out of your teeth.
  8. Separate each eyelash with tweezers like Audrey Hepburn’s makeup artist used to do.
  9. Check for lice. (Sorry.)
  10. Throw out all other lighting sources because this baby is it.

Of course, you can do your makeup however you want whenever you want, but trying out the different lighting for different environments is truly a trip in and of itself. It also really does make getting the right look easier — even if you were putting it together with makeup from Limited Too.

The Jerdon Tri-Fold Two-Sided Makeup Mirror is small and light enough to be used on an actual vanity, your desk, table, bathroom counter or plopped on your bed. It also has a built-in electrical outlet which is something you didn’t know you needed.

“I keep trying to like the new LED lighted make-up mirrors, but none of them can outshine this good old fashioned 3-way mirror,” wrote one Jerdon Tri-Fold Two-Sided Makeup Mirror devotee. “It’s the best for brightness, magnification, regular and all angled views hands down!”
