Try adding a sconce

Sconces provide proper task lighting, making them an ideal choice for personal grooming. Here, sconces mounted on either side of the mirror cast an even light and eliminate shadows over the face.

Tip: Sconces placed at eye level, about 66" to 72" from the floor and 36" to 40" apart, eliminate shadows under the chin, eyes and cheeks.
