A key difference between these lamps is the way their shades diffuse light. The LEDs on the Aura Ring Lamp are positioned around the outer edge of the ring and aimed through a special lightguide diffuser, giving a wider spread of light, a softer glow and no direct glare. This is ideal for front-facing camera filming and applying makeup, and is easier on your eyes as well as the eyes of your client. The shade of the Aura is fully adjustable so you can place it in the exact position and angle you need.
The twin shades of the Gemini have LEDs that directly illuminate through the diffuser, increasing intensity. This produces more focused light and the diffusers on the shades ensure the light is evenly distributed. Each shade can be moved independently and positioned as needed. This makes the Gemini ideal for eyelashes and eyebrows, and there’s no need to worry about glare as the shades ensure the light is directed away from your eyes and focused down onto the client you’re working on.
