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.
