If you want to take your own passport photos, the State Department's web site has all the details on passport photo requirements. It's worth your time to review the State Department's helps because they actually are quite helpful. So we tried putting up some lights on each side of our child like the Secretary of State website suggests. We had a bench set against a white (or maybe slightly off white) wall in between two windows. The wall is a bit textured and we were under the impression that the background had to be flat and white.
The person at the post office that was taking our application used a little template that looks just like the crop tool on the website to make sure our photos met the size guidelines. This entry was posted in Family, Money Saving Tips, Sunny and tagged passport, passport photos, U.S.
Because sharing is caring, I thought I’d share some tips and tricks I learned to get the best passport photo ever. The best photo tip ever is to tip your chin down a little, which I learned from Karen on Makeup and Beauty Blog.

I had to renew my health card pic but held off on my license since I knew I’d be doing it again in a year. I knew at the beginning of the year that my passport was due to run out at some point – and that point is June. Life's Great Adventures are all about achieving YOUR travel dreams no matter how big or small. With the holidays right around the corner, lots of us are getting ready to travel so we can spend quality time with our family and friends.
Especially when you're flying to another country, it's important not to let your passport get within six months of its expiry date (some countries refuse to allow entry after this point). How many times have you cringed when handing over your passport because the photo is less than flattering?
Lighting: A biometric photo must be evenly lit and show no shadows or bright spots on the person or background. Tip: If the light is coming from one side, put something on the dark side to reflect light back onto the face (white poster board, aluminum foil, car sun shade). Head coverings: Head coverings such as hats, caps or scarves on biometric photos are generally prohibited, however, may be allowed if it is something worn every day for religious reasons.
These are the most important points you should consider when you want a correct photo for your passport, visa, green card, ID card, driver’s license, or other photo ID.

For the eyes, I went with my current love that is the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette 2 – this is a great palette to use for Passport photos.
As I said, they have come on a long way in recent years – with constant white light instead of a blinding flash that probably just makes you squint and look like a rabbit in headlight. But as best as you can try to smize, it’s kinda hard not to look a little bit odd when not smiling. Ok, so most of your clothes don’t show in photos now as the face is taking up most of the shot. It's not all that complicated, though if you want to avoid a hassle, you can pay $10.99 at someplace like Walgreen's to have it done for you.


Powder down your T-zone to take away potential hot spots that happen when the flash goes off. I used two shades: a creamy beige all over the lid, and a matte brown in the crease and lower lash line for some depth. Make sure you go over the usual areas: temples, cheekbones, jawline, even (lightly!) down the sides of the nose.
Don’t be shy and layer on more than you usually wear, as the flash will tone it down a lot.
This is not usually the time to wear a trendy bright lip if you think you’re going to regret it 5 or 10 years later. I am stuck with that horrid photo until 2024 ?? I think you win world’s best passport photo forever.
My learner’s photo is SO bad — and I got it when you were still allowed to smile! I followed your suggestions more or less, but after 2 failed attempts I felt like it was me, not them.
Am i going to get my passport in time in order to arrange my Visa’s in time, in order to get the bus in time for our once-in-a-lifetime trip?
Even before that, I think we should start looking at what vaccination’s we need to get sorted out before we leave. If, like mine, your family is spread out over a country or two, that usually means pulling out your passport and getting ready to hop on a plane. If you're coming up on that date, time to queue up at your local passport office and get that sucker renewed!
Natural makeup -- Today is not the day to try deep plum lips, dark and smokey eyeshadow, or fuscia blush. Instead of spending a lot of time and money at a photographer or settling for drug store or photo booth pictures, did you know you can take your own picture at home? The easiest way to achieve this is to place the person about 1 meter (3 feet) in front of a wall facing a window or other natural light. An avid traveler who grew up in a bilingual German-American household, several years ago she, her husband and cat left the US for a chance to work in Austria.
Basically photo booth pictures can wash you out – so even if you leave the contour to Kimmy K on the average day. But to again add dimension I went for a nude pink gloss Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector. But do make your hair is tucked back and not covering your face or else you do risk the picture being rejected. I’m due to update my passport in 2017 which seems like so far away considering I got my last passport photo taken when I was just 16. If you've got a shy or unruly child (no names, please), it may be less hassle to take the time to set up your lights and white background at home.
Well, to tell the truth, I don't know how many hours until school starts, but this post is really for me.
So yeah, the odds are not ever in our favour for this situation, but there are some tweaks you can do in your makeup that’ll actually look good on that ID of yours. To hide shadows under a puffy eye bag, take a lighter concealer than one you usually use, and highlight the shadow under the bag.
Try to stay away from super sleek hair close to your head as it can look too severe in pictures.
If you can’t smile with your mouth (I prefer a big toothy smile myself!), smile with your eyes by squinting a little, and put on a slight smirk on your lips. I think I might accidentally lose my work badge too (*wink*wink*) because the picture on it is pretty terrible.


I haven’t even left the country yet!) I have learned one extremely vital piece of advice that I can now pass on to you.
I suggest wearing neutral, natural, full coverage makeup as passport photos have a tendency to bring out the shadows and make you look washed out. This means that you have the potential to look like the angriest, grumpiest person in the world for the next 5-10 years whenever you hand over your passport. She enjoys traveling throughout Europe as well as exploring her adopted home town of Vienna. The day you take your picrtures is the day to use your make-up to add a little extra dimension. My current go-to for brows is the Revlon Brow Fantasy – the pencil is quite pale, so hard to go wrong and the gel just keeps things in place. You know, just in case you get pulled by a cute cop (where you will for sure talk your way out of a ticket, ha!). Line the upper waterline with a black pencil for good measure to make those lashes appear thicker. The tip that changed my last picture was “no sleek hair”, went for beach waves and what a difference! This could take WEEKS and as you know the bus we are taking on our journey overland to Sydney not only leaves on the 4th July, but will also travel through a number of weird and wonderful countries on the way – for which I will need VISA’S!
A dash of colour on your lips and extra pump of your eyelash curler then you're good to go! But here's a little trick that I've gotten away with for my passport and driver's licence over the years -- smile the teeniest tiniest of smiles. It was tucked away, so I wasn’t surrounded by people waiting for a train or anything that made it feel rushed.
Shoulders down and back, chin a little forward and ever so slightly down (feels unnatural but works for a face photo), face forward (passport photo requirement). My regular sitters are, of course, in school themselves and I feel bad always asking my friends to take my kids. Depending on the shape of your lips, some people are dispositioned so that their resting face is one with a natural pout. Unfortunately, smiling, laughing, frowning or other expressions are not allowed, so keep your expression neutral. Including a new passport (which when you only just got a new one three years ago is a tad annoying). Blush so you don’t look washed out by the fairly strong lighting in these booths now.
Then,  if you want, one little tip is to press your tongue into the roof of your mouth as it apparently helps give you a little extra shape to the cheekbones. I wish I had these tips a few months back when I went to renew my passport:(I cringe at my passport and drivers license picture all the time! Personally I’d opt for these over in-store photo options that places like snappy snaps or similar offer. Then, I had to hurry up and get the next ones taken and that ended up being midnight one night (haha, oh college) and I look bedraggled.
