One of the best tips I had was to use a circular selfie light to attach to my phone – makes such a difference- that and a Glamcor lamp of course! – Anne Perry, Nouveau Lashes Trainer
I have a little star sticker on the ceiling, client looks at that for photos. Always gives a more accurate photo! – Michelle Jackson Jackson Beauty
I use a head lamp for my LVL lashes. It’s so handy to keep the light where you want it whilst keeping my hands free. – Nassim Glover Subtle Elegance
I use the ‘WordSwag’ app on my phone you can add your name or logo. My best advice would stamp all your work through the middle so it can’t be cropped out or used by someone else. – Lynn Kellow Lynn Kellow Beauty
I use the Glamcor lamp to take my photos. Due to the great quality of the photos I get from using it, it didn’t take long for me to earn the cost of it back from all the bookings I was getting through my Facebook page. I take photos using my iPhone 6, then use an app called Pic Collage to edit them. (I would suggest paying extra to remove their watermark) I use the same format with every photo- Nouveau brand logo, my name and 2 or 4 pics of my client depending on whether it’s an infill or a fresh set. – Rebecca Green Rebecca Green Lashes
