Social media setup lighting

This may be a bit left field, though was wondering if anyone could recommend any full body lighting that would be good for social media videos indoors. I shoot everything on an Phone.

Supposedly a big ring light or large soft is good and affordable, though any other recommendations for others who may use lighting for tik tok or instagram videos would also be great. Size recommendations?

I'm not looking to spend heaps and don't need 3 point lighting, though something that has different levels of brightness and kelvin settings. Thanks

Maybe have a look at a Godox SL-60W. Pair it with an inexpensive softbox and light stand.

This is what I use.

I was going to suggest an LED strip light, but discovered those are pretty spendy.

Maybe something like a couple of Godox or other brand LED lights in strip softboxes would work. For high quality full length you probably want a large box and plenty of power in your light.

Another option would be to bounce your lights off a pair of V flats. With this setup you might use four lights -- one high, one low on each side of your model -- for more even light.
