Taking passport photos is an absolutely terrifying experience, you can't wear too much makeup, but you also don't want to look sick or dead, so you need a little bit of help.
Moisturize Moisturize Moisturize // You're going to need all the help you can get with that horrible white background and fluorescent lighting, when you get ready to take your passport photo, be sure to moisturize and exfoliate (not too hard, you don't want to be completely red!) your skin before hand! My favorite face lotion to use is Nourish Organics face lotion, it's perfect for sensitive skin!
BB Cream Is Your Best Friend // I don't normally wear anything on my face, because my skin is so dry, but when I need extra help, I slap on urban decay's Naked Skin BB cream
Glow It Up // The flash from the camera will definitely suck, so you should add some color to your cheeks! My favorite blush for a healthy, natural looking glow is Hervana by Benefit!
Fix Your Brows // Ten years from now you don't want to look back at your passport and see that your brows were a mess. Gimme Brow by benefit is a true godsend for unruly eyebrows.
Less Is More // Red lips and a smokey eye are definitely too much for a passport photo, you want people to actually recognize you when you're traveling, and too bold of a look can also make you look a little clownish in photos. Natural makeup is a total necessity when taking passport photos.
