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. 

Never heard it of it? A ring light is a circular lighting tool that casts a flattering glow over your face, smooths your skin (adios, crow’s feet!) and just makes you a lot more camera-ready, in general, than your desk lamp could ever do. While portrait photographers, vloggers and beauty influencers have known the wonders of ring lights forever, they’re pretty new to the rest of us. 

But luckily Amazon has a sale on some of the best versions to illuminate your face and have you looking like a pro. Plus, they’re great for hiding the fact that you didn’t put on makeup or do your hair. Save up to 57 percent on top-rated styles — but hurry, the sale only lasts until midnight.

At a whopping 57 percent off, this ring light kit has it all — white and orange light filters, a remote for hands free photos and video recordings, a tripod for tabletop or freestanding use and a shoe to mount your phone or camera. And with a 4.7-star rating from over 38,000 reviewers, you won’t find a deal better than this one.

“The lighting in my house has always been terrible on camera. I've been meaning to invest in one of these for quite some time and I'm glad I finally pulled the trigger,” says a makeup blogger. “Not only does it make the quality of my videos massively better, I actually prefer putting on my makeup with this light on. I think it will improve my makeup skills and filming skills overtime. Definitely worth the investment.”

If you're having an issue with color and tone when you're on camera, this is the ring light for you. You can adjust the color temperature easily using a knob, and without using filters. You can even charge your phone through the USB port on the back of the ring while you are taking a Zoom meeting, and you'll never accidentally run out of juice. This one is remote-controlled, too, and it's 25 percent off today!
