Just because we quit believing in Santa Claus doesn't mean that our moms stopped snapping awkward Christmas morning photos. You know, the embarrassing family shots complete with footed pajamas, bedhead hair, and sleepy smiles over obliterated wrapping paper. It's no longer safe to go makeup free while opening presents! Now that your mom has downloaded Instagram and Facebook, these memories will last a lifetime on the World Wide Web (oh joy!).
We worked with Bobbi Brown Director of Global Artistry Kim Soane to create a five-minute, five-product makeup tutorial you can do before rushing down the stairs for early-morning Christmas waffles. This simple step-by-step guide is based on the Instant Pretty Makeup Lesson, which you can get for free at any Bobbi Brown counter. Once you've taken all the obligatory snaps by the tree, you can run back to your room and touch up your makeup with Soane's slimming tips before gorging yourself on holiday ham.
