3 Best Ring Lights - A Helpful Guide for Selfies, Photography & Videos

You're going to take selfies and videos anyway, so why not light them up the right way?

It’s no secret that when it comes to taking the perfect selfie, lighting makes all the difference (I mean, have you ever tried taking a selfie under fluorescent lighting or in a dark bar). But with today's requirement of photographing your face every damn day, it's pretty much expected that you should have a ring light somewhere in your arsenal.

Case-in-point: Khloé Kardashian brought her own lighting system to the DMV to take her driver's license photo. Yes, this is the society we're living in. Which means whether you're an aspiring beauty YouTuber—and don't know where to start—or just want to take super stunning selfies for your Instagram, Facebook or Tinder profile, I handpicked the best beauty lights for you, below.
