Great Corporate Photo. Friendly team

I saw my girlfriend's linked in photo taken with Instant Glamour and decided to give them a try. Had walked past their shop at Bugis Junction years ago.

Results were fantastic, I must say. Makeup and Hairstyling was natural and most importantly, I looked like myself. Had previously done one at a bridal studio and the makeup was far too thick and heavy. Photo taking was pretty fun, trying different expressions and I managed to shortlist 4 good shots of myself, all with different expressions and angles. With the photographer's advice, I chose a nice picture of me smiling.

I like that I got to see the digital touch up which was done on the spot. I was concerned about one of my eye being smaller than the other one. Thankfully the photographer balanced it up for me with photoshop. Once I gave the ok, then the photo was printed on the spot.

I applied for a few jobs with the photos and I was actually offered most of them. I guess a nice photo really does open doors for you. The photo was so much better than those Instant ones I took at my neighbourhood when I was in a hurry.

I will be bringing my mum down for her shoot too soon. Would recommend them to friends who need a good photo taken.

Pleasant Experience. Nice Professional Photo

Just did a Corporate Package with Instant Glamour and I was happy with the results.

The makeup and hairstyling was natural and enhanced my look. Nothing too thick or cakey

Their outfit of white shirt and black jacket was quite common. So my advice is to bring own perhaps else you may look like a real estate agent.

The photographer took about 30 shots of me facing front and side. It was hard to choose but with their recommendations, I eventually chose a side facing shot. Front ones were too mugshot like...

I was shown the digital touch up and it was fantastic. My face was slimmed down and skin smoothed. all blemishes removed! Hair got some increased volume too. I collected all the passport prints and soft copy on the spot within half an hour.

Overall, i would say the service was great and the team was very friendly.
I would recommend Instant Glamour to my friends if they need a Corporate Photo.

Overall experience : 8.5/10

Bad experience. Does not recommend.

Recently went to have a corporate shoot after browsing through their portfolios on their website.

The reality turned out very different! I was super not happy with their service and end product. The makeup is simple and hair is halfway done, just for front viewing purposes. They rely heavily on photoshop afterwards.

The photo taking is also hastily done and the photograher did not even try to catch the best angle of the subject. The editing was worse and it was not completed well. I ended up with eyes imbalanced in size. The photographer did not even ask if I was satisfied with the editing before saving and printing the picture.

I won't recommend this place to anyone.

Not very impressive

Recently went there for passport pics. Took the $89 corporate package which include hair styling, make-up & 1 4R. Makeup artiste was nice and friendly. Did a great job! Great customer service. Photographer was young and seem inexperienced. Not so happy with the photographer service. Maybe it's a small package, so not much attention given. But the pics turned out quite well.

I would recommend them if you want some decent pictures. But, don't expect much. They charge $20 for digital ones to keep and $1 to post your 4R if you don't want to wait 2hrs for it.

Overall experience : 5/10.
