We all dread the less than complimentary passport photo with the light that washes you out and the inability to show a gleaming smile! But we've got you covered with all the tips + tricks to take your next passport photo from lack luster to a glamour shot!
Unfortunately the camera washes most of us out. The Passport Makeup trend is all about defining and intensifying your natural features through contouring and brightening (more then usual) to make sure it shows up on the camera!

Because you have to be photographed head on, you will need to contour with that in mind by creating angles! HOT TIP: Don't apply contour too low on your cheekbones or you'll give the appearance of a lower cheek bone - which is the opposite of you what you want!
We recommend our bareMinerals Bronzer in Warmth! It's a neutral colored bronzer that doubles as a great contour color too.
Next, BRIGHTEN your undereyes, the center of your forehead, and your chin by using a concealer that is one or two shades lighter than your foundation. Our favorite concealer is our bareMinerals Complexion Rescue which harbors 25spf as well!
Then, set with a brightening setting powder - we love the bareMinerals Original Mineral Veil Pressed Setting Powder in Translucent.
Finished with a blush on top of your cheekbones blending up to the temple! We look bareMinerals Kiss of Pink Blonzer!
The Siren Eye! Yes, a new trend but but stick with us, it's easy. Add some of the bareMinerals Warmth Bronzer in the crease to build intensity and then brighten the lid with a light eyeshadow.
Then, add a small subtle flick of black or brown liner to give a mini cat eye. Smudge with an angled brush to soften the look. We love bareMinerals Mineralist Eyeliner in Topaz or Onyx!
Complete the eye look by curling your lashes, focusing on the outer corner of your eyes! We love the bareMinerals Maximist Phyto-Fiber Mascara because it is a volumizing mascara made with Orange Peel Fibers infused with nuturing ingredients for visibly thicker lashes over time.
Trust the process...over line the lips and follow up with a light lip gloss! This will give your lips a plump appearance without the filler.

We recommend a brown liner to add contrast. Our favorite is Mineralist Lasting Lip Liner in Calming Cocoa.
Finish the lip look with a mauve or nude pink toned lip gloss! We love the bareMinerals Mineralist Lip Gloss-Balm in the color Love because they are super hydrating and provides just enough color!
