Woman Left 'Humbled' After Almost Missing Flight Due to Unrecognizably 'Hot' Passport Photo
Make-up and beauty treatments have the power to change our appearance to a great extent and sometimes, they help boost our self-esteem, too. But a situation faced by this influencer suggests we should pose in our most natural look for passport photos to avoid facing some ugly moments at security checkpoints. Well, if we are to believe the story of Alisha Marie (@alishamarie on TikTok) narrating how she faced some serious trouble while getting through airport security, we will stop beating our faces with make-up before getting our passport photos taken.
Marie’s “hot” passport picture almost made her miss the flight. Her video also gained over 14 million views since it was posted and it served as a warning to everyone who is planning to look pretty for their passport pictures. Marie had to deal with passport security who simply thought that her make-up-laden face was someone else's. As she flashed her passport photo to her audience, it was pretty obvious why the airport staff thought that she was a different person without makeup.
Marie, thankfully managed to convince the security and board her flight at the end, but she was left with a humbling experience and a whole lot of embarrassment. “This is why you should never do hot photos for your passport,” she warns her audience as someone laughs from behind the camera while recording her. Marie takes off her cap and proceeds to laugh at the inconvenience she faced.
According to her IMDB profile, Marie is a YouTube creator, influencer and also actress who often posts fashion and makeup-related videos on her social media outlets. So, she might have felt like it was necessary to go and take her passport picture with a full face of foundation, eye make-up and a trendy new hairstyle with bangs. Little did she know that it will cause her so much trouble.
Well, it also looks like the netizens are agreeing with the fact that she indeed had a "humbling" experience after her airport troubles. Despite praising the chic photo, a few netizens even came in to roast her. One person wrote that "if something like this had happened to them, then they would have never shown their faces at the airport ever again." Another netizen chimed in to say that "their own passport photos are atrocious" and "how some of them had even hired make-up artists to do their face before taking passport photos." Well, now that we know that a fashionable passport photo might look good but also give us headaches, it's better we look as natural as possible in these photos.
