This wiki has been updated 7 times since it was first published in February of 2019. Typical pictures on social media and dating apps suffer from pesky shadows obscuring parts of the face. Vloggers and influencers combat this problem by using ring lights, which highlight facial features for all kinds of video content. But thanks to our selection, you don't need to be a fashion photographer to capture professional-looking shots and present the best version of yourself online. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best ring light on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

February 27, 2019:

The biggest thing that sets the Neweer unit apart and gives it the number-one spot is the variety of options available. Most units on this list are offered in one size, maybe two, but the Neweer is available not just in different sizes, but different colors, and with different types of stands. That's for users who are serious about getting everything perfect, but the Zowei Photographic is inexpensive enough that even those just starting out in makeup or cooking tutorials can use it. However, don't sleep on our number 6 pick, which will be useful for those working in a kitchen that doesn't have a lot of space. Overall, these units offer a lot of the same features, so it really comes down to how much of a perfectionist you are when it comes to your selfies.
