    Whenever it’s time to renew our government IDs, like our passport and driver's license, we always tell ourselves that this time, we’ll make sure we actually look decent, even with the strict rules offices have for makeup.  

    One way you can nail your photo is by swiping on a fresh "my lips but better" lippie to instantly brighten up your face. You can pick shades that are either nude, pink, or even mauve. Here are 8 of our favorite government ID-appropriate lipsticks:


    Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick in Mauvey, P165, Watsons

    Inglot Matte Lipstick in 425, P895, SM Megamall
