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 videoconferencing accessories 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 big on top-rated styles — but hurry, the sale only lasts until midnight.

This ring light kit has it all — 16 colors for lighting, 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. Flip between four modes — flash, strobe, fade and smooth — to help you find the lighting that's just right for you. 

“This was a nice surprise. One of my favorite purchases ever on Amazon," a satisfied customer said in the reviews. "The lights are very bright and the color payoff is unbelievable. Honestly didn't expect it to be good, because it was cheaper than most. I ordered one at first and brought two more. I recommend if you're on a budget and looking for good quality. These lights travel everywhere with me now."

If you're having an issue with color and tone when you're on camera, this is the light for you. You can easily adjust the color temperature and brightness without using filters. The RGB mode features six main colors that you can combine to create 30 different lighting effects. The whole thing easily clips onto your desk, so you can get up-close lighting while you Zoom.

One happy user wrote: "I used to join Zoom meetings and broadcast with a just a lamp off to the side so that there would be enough light so I could be seen on camera, but no blinding lights directly on me. Now I am using these lights on red/green settings and low brightness so I have some direct light without having my eyes burned, while also adding some hue to my picture. I would definitely recommend these to anyone that needs functional lights at a desk with limited space."
