5 Passport Makeup Tutorials to Follow
1. Rhian Ramos' Less Is More Look
To start off, this tutorial from Rhian Ramos is proof that you don’t need to go all out with your makeup. With her look, you can skip using a foundation or skin tint altogether. Use a little bit of concealer instead, a contour stick to shape your cheekbones for dimension, a nude blush, and muted brown shades for your eyeshadow. To look more awake, add some coats of lifting mascara to your lashes. In the video, Rhian also teaches you a cool trick for volumizing your hair, so stay tuned 'til the end for that!
2. Sacheu's Full Coverage Lifted Look
If you want a full crash course on nailing a passport photo, watch this tutorial by content creator Sacheu. To her, it’s not so much about changing up the products being used, but more about the technique and placement of your makeup. Some genius tricks she mentioned include: making sure your base does not create a white cast to avoid looking washed out; layering foundation and concealer (if you need to) because the camera won’t be able to pick up its thickness coverage-wise especially if it’s for an ID or passport that is really low on pixels.
3. Lierge Perey's Youthful Pink Monochromatic Look
While the DFA allows applicants to wear makeup to their appointments, it’s always good to keep things very minimal to avoid being asked to take your makeup off. To make sure of this, follow Lierge's lead and use only a skin tint, a concealer on places where you need more coverage, and a baby pink blush to look fresh. Her youthful look is best for those who want to keep their passport glam simple and sweet!
4. Miss Nate's Naturally Flawless Look
In this TikTok, makeup artist Nate Javier (or Miss Nate, as his viewers call him) reveals his take on a passport look inspired by Chie Filomeno's. As he guides us through the look, one main takeaway is to make sure your skin can still be seen through your tint or foundation, and that it should have the same shade and tone as your neck. This trick, along with the others he shares, will all help deliver that seamless yet natural look that Miss Nate always rocks on TikTok. You can use his tips for your other makeup looks, too!
5. Nena Schuurmans' Naturally Radiant Look
When you want to look put-together but can’t be bothered to wake up extra early, copping this quick and easy look by Nena Schuurman should do the trick. And by quick and easy, we’re talking 15 minutes tops and you’re out the door! Simply use your everyday makeup products like a skin tint, concealer, bronzer, blush, and your MLBB lippie all to enhance your features and not change them.
