Terrible drivers license pictures can haunt you for YEARS. Today I had to get one taken so I decided to stay on the neutral side of things. I did a warm neutral eye with some simple liner, a warm rosy-tan cheek and light coral gloss. Not over the top, but still ME.
Tips for ID picture makeup: try to avoid:
• crazy colors or rock n roll smoked out eye
• bright blush
• blood red lips or anything that may come off to harsh or overly trendy
• trend makeup, refering to anything that is too seasonal or avant gaurde.
Remember, you want to look like yourself in your picture because you will have it for YEARS. In my very first drivers license pictures I had pink hair. Kind of adorable, but also EVERYONE who looked at it pointed it out. "YOU DON'T HAVE PINK HAIR ANYMORE!" Um, Thanks Captain obvious.
Additionally, I took these pictures about 10 hours AFTER I applied my makeup and it still looks good. Behold the power of primer!
