How to Look Amazing in Your Driver's License Photo

Updated 09/23/16

If you look like a model in your driver’s license photo, you can stop reading (and go away now, thanks).

So we recruited celebrity makeup artist Kirin Bhatty (she’s glammed up Abigail Spencer, Jessica Paré, Kiernan Shipka, and more). From a nude eyeliner trick to picture-perfect brows, keep scrolling for her DMV-friendly makeup tips!
