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 your lamps and blinds still does nothing to help, what you need is a ring light. 

Never heard it of it? It's just what it sounds like — 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 than your desk lamp could ever do. (Plus, they’re great for hiding the fact that you didn’t put on makeup or do your hair.) While portrait photographers, vloggers and beauty influencers have known the wonders of ring lights forever, they’re pretty new to the rest of us. 

Luckily, Amazon has a sale on some of the best models to illuminate your face and have you looking like a pro. Save up to 40 percent on top-rated styles — but hurry, these deals only lasts until midnight.

Just a heads-up: You can have your hands on a new ring light in two days with Amazon Prime. Not a member? Sign up here for all the entertainment and shopping benefits Amazon offers. Member now? Get one of these lights a jiffy, so you look your best ASAP.

At a whopping $31 off, this ring light kit has it all — cool and warm settings, a tripod for tabletop or freestanding use, an easy-to-use remote and a shoe to mount your phone or camera. And with a 4.6-star rating, it's a really great deal.

“I got this and was blown away by how amazing it is," a five-star fan said. "Unboxing and setting up was very easy and straightforward. And the actual light is amazing, you can change how bright it is through the remote, which I think is absolutely amazing. In addition, the remote can change the warmth and take pictures through Bluetooth! Honestly, I don't think there are any cons to this product."

"I am BLOWN AWAY by the quality of this selfie ring light," a very satisfied customer said. "I'm starting a YouTube channel for vlogging and bought this ring light to start off with. If you're worried about the arms not being stable enough to hold, don't sweat it; it will not budge unless you want t to. There are three light settings to choose from and multiple dimness settings to fit your needs. The holder expands to fit the size of any phone. The clip is pretty darn sturdy, and I'm going to experiment with the placement."
