Ring Lights in Australia: Let’s create beautiful, well-lit content! 💡
Overwhelmed by all the ring light options, sizes, types and models? Wondering what on EARTH a CRI is? Let’s unpack all the industry jargon together. Why take our word for it? Etoile Collective’s ring lights and light stands have been used by industry professionals, makeup artists, YouTubers and content creators for years. So here we'll spill the facts, minus the mumbo-jumbo industry jargon.
Here's what a ring light can do for you:
- Illuminate any space with dark, dull lighting
- Remove shadows from the subject
- Show off true colours or intricate details
- Super portable and compact - great for travelling freelance makeup artists
Here’s who a ring light may be suitable for:
- Makeup artists
- YouTubers (great to film tutorials with)
- Content creators (a dream to light up flat lays!)
- Beauty technicians (nail, brow, eyelash)
- Tattoo artists
PS. Still wondering what a CRI is? It’s a Colour Rendering Index and is essentially a measure of how accurate the light source is in terms of reflecting the true colour of something.

If you wanted to turn the 18” Light into a tabletop unit or the 12” Light into a floor unit, that is totally doable. E.g. Our 18” Light fits on the weighted table base. And our 12” Light fits on the tripod. Ta-da! 🎉

Ring Light Vs. Multi-Glow Light
Comparing our lighting tools and wondering whether you need a Ring Light or a Multi-Glow Light? Here’s the info you need to know. Have another question? Live chat us and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible!
Lighting (brightness, temperature): The brightness and temperature across both units are the same. However, when the arms of the Multi-Glow light are further apart, the light is spread across a larger space and can thus overall appear to be not as bright.
Flexibility / convenience of use: If you are looking to create content in multiple settings and will need to constantly re-angle or re-position the ring light with stand, we recommend opting for the Multi-Glow light. The greatest feature of this light is the ability to angle, flex, reposition and redirect the lighting in any angle you wish, without having to unscrew/rescrew (as you will on the ring light). This makes it super easy to go from a makeup tutorial to a flatlay!
If you are also looking to avoid the ring light reflection in your eyes (IYKYK), we would recommend opting for the Multi-Glow light as you are able to manipulate how this is reflected in someone’s eye.
