"Upon Kelly's approach to discuss lighting, I was immediately intrigued," stated Dedivanovic. "Lighting is paramount in everything I do, whether it's makeup application or content creation. I not only recognize the necessity for this product, but also the need for a company deeply attuned to our industry's nuances. The Ilios Beauty Ring mirrors natural sunlight with unparalleled precision. Its quality is simply flawless."
