mirror medicine cabinet

last month

I need some advice about lighting over a mirror medicine cabinet. I’ve chosen to go with a cabinet for extra storage in a small ensuite washroom. The cabinet is 25” wide x 26” high. I’m unable to have it recessed into the wall due to plumbing work immediately behind the wall.
Vanity is 34” high; 31” wide
Lighting store representative said if I place a vanity bar light whether LED or usual bulbs it would create a shadow downward & deflect the light.
She recommended lights with shades clear (sorry don’t know the proper term) with downward lighting.
These are not my taste or style for this bathroom. Need advice

Other question: amount of space required above faucet to cabinet & between top of cabinet & lighting. Ceiling height is 8 ft.

Opinions please.
