Chrissy Teigen, the indisputable and unofficial queen of social media, is at it again. Whether you love or hate her, there is no denying the 31-year-old model knows how to slay with her own personal brand of sarcasm and lighthearted humor. Just look at Chrissy Teigen’s Twitter tagline: “@LowellConrad says my cookbook ideas are stupid.” Even Chrissy Teigen’s Instagram is full of hilarious posts.

It is clear that the model is not afraid to poke fun at herself or her family. She even managed to turn her first family pic with Santa into a comical event on Twitter and Instagram. When her husband, John Legend, could not make it in person because of a business trip in Paris, Teigen got creative and took matters into her own hands. She got one of her friends to accompany her to the photo shoot and pose as John by putting a cutout of his face over hers. The resulting picture is nothing short of comical.

But by the looks of the pictures, it seems that Chrissy Teigen’s daughter, Luna, is not having any part of her mother’s crazy shenanigans. Surprisingly, the toddler managed to stay calm throughout the whole ordeal, which is more than can be said for other kids her age. It is a good thing that Chrissy Teigen and John Legend clearly have a loving relationship and a good sense of humor.

The Grammy-award winning singer responded to the tweets with a simple, “savage,” to which she replied, “We miss you!!!” Christmas is obviously a fun time in the Legend-Teigen household, which explains how Chrissy Teigen always looks so poised and happy around the holidays. But, that could also have something to do with her makeup routine.

Holiday Makeup: Chrissy Teigen Style

Chrissy Teigen’s secret for glowing skin and makeup essentials is simple: she has celebrity makeup artists Mary Phillips and Patrick Ta at her disposal. Rather than going the traditional route of using holiday colors like red and green for her makeup look, Mary Phillips went with a different, more subtle approach that perfectly complements Teigen’s naturally beautiful facial structure.

She already has plump and high cheekbones, so all Phillips did was use her makeup prowess to accentuate what was already there. In fact, one of Phillips’s best beauty tips for achieving the famous Teigen holiday look is to use soft, understated colors. Of course, it does also help that, being a model and TV personality, Teigen also probably follows a very rigid skin care routine to help her maintain her beautiful complexion, because even when she is not wearing any makeup, her skin still looks flawless. She has not made any notable changes to her hair color or had a haircut in a long time, but when you have hair as beautiful as hers, it’s not necessary to mess with perfection.
