Picture-Perfect: How to Take the Ideal Photo for Your Consultation

What is Permanent Makeup?

Ideal Photos for Your Consultation with DAELA Cosmetic Tattoo

How do you take perfect pictures for your permanent makeup consultation via email or text? In this tutorial we will describe how to take pictures of your eyes, brows, lips or scars for our team of experts to best consult with you, remotely. At the bottom of this blog, we have supplied example pictures which include What to Do and What Not to Do!

Brow Tattoo Photo Process:

“Prior to your microblading appointment, it’s imperative for our skilled technician to have a clear view of your brows through photographs. This helps determine whether you are an ideal candidate. Various factors like scarring near the brows, skin thinness, texture, and crepe skin can influence our decision on proceeding with microblading.

We kindly request to see any prior microblading, whether performed by us or another artist, before scheduling a new appointment. Your cooperation in this regard is greatly appreciated as it helps us respect your time, our artists’ time, and meet your expectations.

How to Capture Your Photos: Achieving the correct angle in your photos is essential for us to assess your brows accurately. Please provide three photos:

  1. Front-Facing: Take a full-face photo from the chin up. A super close-up photo may result in blurriness, so a full-face photo is ideal.
  2. Left Profile: Turn 45 degrees away from the camera to your left side, capturing your profile to emphasize the tail of your brow.
  3. Right Profile: Turn 45 degrees away from the camera to your right side, capturing your profile to emphasize the tail of your brow.

Please ensure that all photos are taken facing a window or natural light source. Avoid having the light source behind or to the side of you. Front-facing lighting is crucial for clarity. If possible, have someone assist you in taking the photos to achieve the best results.

TIP: Use the back camera on your phone for clearer photos.

Submitting Your Photos: Once you’ve captured these photos, email them (along with your full name) to the email address or phone number in the header of our website. We have also provided the mobile numbers and email addresses for each DAELA Cosmetic Tattoo at the bottom of this blog. We will promptly review them and get back to you once we have reviewed them with the artist.

Lip Blush Tattoo Photo Process:

In preparation for your upcoming lip consultation, it’s crucial that our lip artist receives clear photos of your lips to determine your candidacy. To help you capture the best images, please follow these guidelines:

  1. Optimal Angle: Take photos that showcase your lips and the surrounding skin. A proper angle is essential to evaluate your suitability effectively.
  2. Natural Lighting: Ensure your photos are well-lit by facing a window or a source of natural light. Avoid positioning yourself with the light source behind or to the side of your lips.
  3. Image Clarity: It’s important that the photos are sharp and free from blurriness. If possible, have someone assist you in taking the pictures to achieve better clarity.
  4. Camera Selection: For crisper photos, we recommend using the back camera of your phone.

Submitting Your Photos: Once you’ve captured these photos, email them to the email address or phone number in the header of our website. We have also provided the mobile numbers and email addresses for each DAELA Cosmetic Tattoo at the bottom of this blog. We will promptly review them and get back to you once we have reviewed them with the artist.

Eyeliner Tattoo Photo Process:

To ensure a successful eyeliner procedure, it’s crucial for your eyeliner technician to review your photos before your appointment. This allows us to assess your candidacy effectively. We also request to see any previous work, whether it was done by us or another artist, before scheduling a new appointment. Your cooperation in this regard is greatly appreciated, as it helps us respect your time, our artists’ time, and meet your expectations.

Photography Tips: When taking your photos, it’s essential to use natural light or face a window, ensuring that the light source is neither behind nor to the side of you. Front-facing lighting is important for clarity. Please make sure all photos are clear and free from blurriness. Enlisting someone to assist you in taking the photos can help ensure clarity.

TIP: For clearer photos, use the back camera on your phone.

Photo Requirements: We require the following photos for your eyeliner consultation:

  1. Two Front-Facing Photos:
    • One with your eyes open.
    • One with your eyes closed.

    Take full-face photos from the chin up. A super close-up photo may result in blurriness, so a full-face photo is ideal.

  2. Left Profile with Eyes Closed:
    • Turn 45 degrees away from the camera toward your left side to capture your eyes.
  3. Right Profile with Eyes Closed:
    • Turn 45 degrees away from the camera toward your right side to better display the area.

Submitting Your Photos: Once you’ve captured these photos, email them (along with your full name) to the email address or phone number in the header of our website. We have also provided the mobile numbers and email addresses for each DAELA Cosmetic Tattoo at the bottom of this blog. We will promptly review them and get back to you once we have reviewed them with the artist.

Scar Camouflage Photo Process:

In order to ensure a successful scar camouflage consultation, it’s essential to provide clear and accurate photos to our Scar Camouflage Specialist, Shonna. These images are vital for her to assess your candidacy and prepare for your appointment. Here’s a guide to capturing the best photos:

TIP: For clearer photos, use the back camera on your phone.

  1. Proper Angle: Take photos from an angle that clearly displays the area around the scar. If the scar is not easily distinguishable, kindly mark or circle the specific area.
  2. Optimal Lighting: Ensure your photos are well-lit with straight-on lighting. Position yourself so that the scar is facing a window or natural light source. Avoid having the light source behind or to the side of the scar.
  3. Clarity: The photos should be sharp and free from blurriness. It can be helpful to have someone else take the photos to achieve better clarity.
  4. Camera Choice: For clearer photos, we recommend using the back camera of your phone.

Submitting Your Photos: Once you’ve captured these photos, email them (along with your full name) to the email address or phone number in the header of our website. We have also provided the mobile numbers and email addresses for each DAELA Cosmetic Tattoo at the bottom of this blog. We will promptly review them and get back to you once we have reviewed them with the artist.

How Not to Take a Photo

The following two pictures are BAD. Not because Jess isn’t lovely, she is lovely even in a bad photo…but because she has the light to her back or a non-focused shot.
