You can always count on Chrissy Teigen to keep it real. Whether she’s poking fun at herself with silly selfies or revealing snaps of intimate beauty moments (a.k.a extension pieces that have fallen to the wayside), she always seems have something hilarious to share. So it wasn’t such a surprise, then, when the mother of two posted a highly humorous behind the scenes shot from her getting-ready process this morning, which included one specific beauty trick that requires intricate application by a seasoned pro.
“When I was young, makeup was just for the face,” Teigen captioned the Instagram image, which showed a towel-clad Teigen sitting on a kitchen chair with her bare legs up in the air. While makeup artist Diane Buzzeta applied liner, hairstylist Glen Coco slathered on a shimmering body tint to the model’s lower body, giving her limbs that lit-from-within glow she’s known for.
Teigen’s not the only one thinking below the neck: body makeup is having a major moment this week, as Kim Kardashian West announced the debut of her first foundation with a satisfying video of the full coverage product being brushed onto her legs. And while the sunkissed benefits of a self-tanner and glittering oil have been well-documented, sometimes, as Teigen shows, we all need a little help from our friends.
