My passport photo which has been taken a few days ago (i have chubby cheeks):
Hair looks black with bits of brown eventhough its fully brown ><
Revlon Colorstay Liquid Foundation in 180 Sand Beige
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Transparent (Used very lightly and sparingly)
Bourjois Blush in 54 Rose Frisson
GOSH Extreme Art Eyeliner in 07 Black
Very little products used.
Makeup Tips For Taking Passport Photos
-Go for a simple makeup look rather than a heavy look otherwise it may not look like you. Most natural looking is best. Neutral colours are best.
-Use matte products rather than glittery/shimmery ones. Using glittery/shimmery products may give you a weird shine in areas as the flash is reflected from them. Always use MATTE products!
-Ever wondered why in some pictures, females’ faces looks paler than the rest of their body? The foundation has SPF in them. Stick to foundations which doesn’t have SPF in them or very low SPF. (For example, I used Revlon Colorstay Liquid Foundation in 180 Sand Beige which has a SPF of 6).
-Definately make sure that the foundation is the right colour for you!
-Blot before you take the pictures if you have oily skin.
-Wear blush. It will make you look healthy as flash may make you look washed out.
-Wear chapstick/vasaline. You want chapped lips to show up on the photo.
-Lightly wear powder. Too much and it will look cakey. Not a good look.
Randomly, I was comparing my new passport photo to my old secondary school dinner card. And oh boy have I changed a LOT! See for yourself *embarrassed*:
Lost a LOT of weight. Looks like I have acorns stored in my mouth in both pictures. Haha. Ewww greasy hair!
