Does your work-from-home space have terrible lighting? You probably had no idea until you started calling into Zoom meetings and noticed your face obscured by shadows. If tinkering with the lamps and overhead lights still does nothing to help, what you need is a ring light.
Ring lights have been the secret weapons of portrait photographers, vloggers and beauty influencers for a while now. They cast a flattering glow over your face, smooth your skin (adios, crow’s feet!) and make you way more camera-ready than your desk lamp (side lighting is not our friend). Today, Amazon has a sale on one of the most popular ring light brands to illuminate your face like the pros do — and they're up to $60 off!
Amazon will give you free shipping, of course. But if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get so much more — from access to new movies to two-day shipping on many items. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here.
Neewer 18-inch Dimmable LED Lighting Kit
Looking for something with tons of settings and a wide dimming range? Neewer’s best-selling ring is for you. It has all the frills and hookups of more expensive professional ring lights. This floorstanding, hands-free, remote-controlled ring light is a multitasker — and an Amazon best-seller.
It casts either cold white light or warm light, whichever you need, to hide blemishes and smooth out your skin tone. It's even powerful enough for live-streaming on social media, and it's lightweight and portable. It comes with a mounting adapter that accepts most DSLR cameras, and it can even hold your smartphone to film you as you conduct meetings that require full use of your computer.
"Works great every time," one five-star fan said. "I love that I can rely on this light for work. Makes a huge difference."
Neewer Dimmable 5600K USB LED Video Light 2-Pack with Adjustable Tripod Stand
Amazon has another top-rated illuminating device that's not technically a ring light but still does an incredible job of making you glow flawlessly on your Zoom and Facetime calls. It's a tabletop lighting kit that lets you adjust brightness from 10 to 100. Create colorful lighting effects, too — there are eight optional filters included with four colors: white, yellow, blue and red. It's totally adjustable and easy to carry from room to room.
One humorous fan wrote: "My wife got a fancy ring light for her work meetings here at the house. I got these bad boys and they were WAY cheaper. Honestly, they do a super job. To be fair, my meetings are a bunch of engineers and field people...I look great for a bunch of people who don't care!"
