Chie Filomeno has been setting standards high with her photos for government IDs.
Over the past few months, the 26-year-old Kapamilya talent has gone viral on social media for looking gorgeous in her photos for her passport and driver's license.
Guess what she's preparing for next?
"National ID, yun na!" Chie laughingly told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) in an interview last October 20, 2022, at the launch of SHEIN's first-ever pop-up store, held at the Ayala Malls Manila Bay Activity Center in Parañaque City.
The Kapamilya star said she makes the extra effort to prepare herself for her ID photos since she will be using them as proof of her identification for 10 years, the usual vality period.
And she was surprised that after posting them on social media, she gained so much attention.
Chie told PEP.ph, "Actually, nagugulat din ako [sa reactions]. Kasi ine-effortan ko din talaga siya kasi [that's] ten years of our lives."
She went on revealing that her beauty look for her government ID photos was inspired by Khloe Kardashian.
"Ang peg ko talaga nun is yung Jenner-Kardashians. Kasi I remember one episode [of Keeping Up with the Kardashians], si Khloe, nagdala pa siya ng ano, ring light sa driver's license niya.
"So sabi ko, 'Bakit hindi natin gawin din yun?' And ten years of our lives so pinag-effortan ko pa rin."
Chie even considered bringing her own ring light as Khloe did.
But she decided not to do so since people might think it would be "too extra" to have her own lighting set-up prepared.
"Actually, inisip ko din iyan kaso baka sabihin ng mga tao dito, 'Grabe naman ito!'"
To those who are having their ID photos taken, Chie revealed her beauty secret: "In-effortan ko na lang sa tulog, tubig, konting make-up..."
Chie also noted the importance of checking the photo guidelines for each government ID prior to her scheduled visit.
She said, "Inaalam ko lang din kung ano yung puwedeng gawin ko as Filipino citizen, and yung mga hindi ko puwedeng gawin.
"So I think, yun lang talaga, and magbasa ng e-mail. And, alamin mo lang kung ano yung right mo sa pagkuha ng government ID."
HOW TO RECREATE CHIE's SUBTLE MAKE-up for IDs
Here's a cheat sheet on how you can recreate Chie's beauty look.
Since foundation isn't allowed in passport photos, Chie used Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizer as her base. This is available in Rustan's Beauty Source for PHP2,750.
Chie added two dots of blush on each side of her cheek using Rare Beauty's Soft Pinch liquid blush in the shade Happy.
