This Makeup Artist’s License Photo Is Better Than Any Selfie
Very few people actually like their ID photo. This is not the case for Lilly Ghalichi Mir, however.
Ghalichi Mir, who is a makeup artist and the founder of Lilly Lashes, recently shared her license photo on Instagram — and it is as glamorous as mine is awkward, folks.
The former Shahs of the Sunset star went to get a new license with her new last name, which changed when she got married to Dara Mir in May. The updated ID features ultra-glam makeup and hair that looks so perfectly styled, you can easily imagine she simply stepped off the set of a shampoo commercial and went straight to the DMV.
Most of us would be overwhelmingly happy with this striking of a state-issued ID photo. However, Ghalichi Mir felt it could have been better, expressing her anguish in the caption: “I got ROBBED!!! 😱I go through all the effort to change my last name 👰🏻and THIS ZOOMED IN PHOTO is what you give me State of CA?!” California, you should be ashamed of yourself.
She continues, “You can’t even see my full glam! My hair was everything that day! Photo Robbery!!!”
According to PopSugar, in fact, Ghalichi Mir brought along Brandin Palestino to keep her hair looking its most Victoria’s Secret-esque and makeup artist Samuel to get her face camera-ready. (It’s worth noting that she also tagged extensions maker Bellami Hair in the photo, so maybe those thick, shiny waves are attainable for someone like myself after all.)
For the record, “You can’t even see my full glam!” might be my favorite quote of 2017 (this is not sarcasm, I genuinely love this phrase). Now, BRB while I make an appointment at my local FedEx to get a new passport photo and a salon appointment conveniently scheduled two hours prior.
