THE ILLUMINATED IPHONE CASE THAT TAKES YOUR SELFIE-GAME TO NEXT LEVEL
Hi there, I got myself a fab little gadget, which is made to help you take better selfies. I’ talking about my Iphone light up case from Lumee.
I’ve been wanting one of these ever since I first heard about them when I worked at New York Fashion week. So now was the time and I decided to get the Duo in a classy Marble version. The Duo case has a front and back light with a natural to warm hue that you can dim, this helps you get the desired light for your pictures.
After I got I realized that this case isn’t just great for selfie situations (yes, no shame I hardly don’t know anyone who doesn’t take a selfie once in a while and why not look your best?!) As a pro makeup artist I found that while I was working backstage, on a high end fashion film for Magasin du Nord this was PERFECT to do check-ups on the models waiting in the dark without disturbing the entire shoot.
So all right, I decided to do a test late last night, this was after getting ready for bed so excuse the outfit and non-done face. As you can see the difference is dramatic. First picture is without the Lumee lights on, Second is with only the back light actually turning away from me, and finally third is with the side ‘selfie’ light on.
Another note, I actually used the back light with dimmer on a 3 star Michelin restaurant in Shanghai (read my post on Shanghai here). Because I wanted to take a picture of all the yummy food and using the flash made the pictures look hard and cheap, but using the back light of the Lumee made the food look as insanely delicious as it was.
Perhaps a nice pre Christmas present for yourself or a loved one… You can get the Lumee case here.
