Got a 16mm short coming up. One of the shots is a over the shoulder of a character looking at himself in the mirror. Since I'm in a small bathroom I was just thinking of shooting a light into the mirror, which would light that and reflect light back into the actors face.

Or do I need to light both separate with different units?

I wouldn't shoot the light into the mirror, but thats just me.

I most likely would, depending on the situation, either bounce the light off the ceiling and skirt that off with some duvatine,
bring in some Kino Flo lights and just use those, or if there are interesting practicals use those, or maybe a combination of these.

All depends on room size, layout, color, etc.
