Anyone using a particular light rig or bulb configuration after dark that they`d recommend ?

I`m using a daylight bulb but it just isn`t cutting it. Short of strapping a pair of Navy SEAL night vision goggles on my head I`m tending to leave detailing until the daylight hours, which is full of distractions, and never gets done.

same problem, it doesn`t help the main room light is behind me so tend to shade whatever I`m working on..

 

My only current solutions the same as the one for my failing near sight vision.. I wear a head magnifier with a built it pair of LED`s.. gets heavy after a while but does the job meantime..

Kind of difficult this time of year, but i always avoid any detail work or matching colours/shading colours after dark.
