Christmas morning is full of smiles and memories. However, Christmas morning is a continuous stream of pictures, snaps and videos. If you are like most people you do not roll out of bed particularly feeling “photo ready”. But photos will be taken and shared with family and friends. So here are some Christmas morning tips.
Most important tip: Realize you don’t need to look completely done up. You can simplify your routine and still look cute. Christmas pictures are more about the memories and experiences don’t worry about looking flawless.
Below are some Chrystal L.’s tips and tricks for helping you look good in every photo on Christmas morning!
1. THE HAIR: Add some braids. Braids are so versatile and there are tons of different types. Our favorite types are: are the classic braid and side fishtail for longer hair. You can both quickly and for the most part without a mirror, perfect in the Christmas morning rush. Pull all your hair into a braid. Or do two braids on either side of your hair and pull back into a half up half down hair style. If you have natural or stick straight hair, you can sleep in 4 large French braids to the back. Take them down when you wake up and boom... you have some beach waves!
2. THE MAKEUP: Grab your Arbonne concealer and cover any spots or circles under my eyes left from staying up late Christmas Eve. If you must use more coverage try Arbonne CC cream, it is great and a perfect light to keep you looking natural.
Mascara: A few quick swipes of Arbonne’s “It’s a long story mascara” and you’re ready to go! Honestly, if you only had time for one makeup item it would be mascara. It opens your eyes and makes you look more awake.
3. THE OUTFIT: The night before, wear your best pajamas, or better yet, black leggings and a black t-shirt. Lay out a cardigan to throw on the next morning.
A Few of Chrystal L.’s Extras:
*Shower the night before. That way when you wake up you are clean ready to quickly get ready
* Throw on some diamond studded earrings. Okay, you can choose whatever earrings. But earrings are a must. They make anything look more put together and will look adorable with your Christmas pajamas.
Finally, have fun and enjoy your family and friends this Christmas!
