Your holiday Instagrams should be a little fancier than your run-of-the-mill brunch photos: ’Tis the season for the double filter. Instagram doesn’t
actually let you apply two filters to a photo, but here’s a little-known trick: Turn your phone’s airplane setting on (make sure your Wi-Fi is off); then try
to publish your first filtered photo. Because you’re not connected to the Internet, the photo obviously won’t go through—but it will be saved to your
camera roll. Turn Wi-Fi back on, reopen Instagram, make sure you cancel your first attempt, then filter that photo again. The right combination of
filters will add a little je nais se quois to your holiday photos, like this application of Earlybird and Amaro (with a little help from Lux) to make the
Rockefeller Center Christmas tree dazzle.
