Growing up (and to this day) I had a blonde best friend named Joanna with blue eyes and lighter skin (that is now self-tanned to golden perfection). She was the Betty to my Veronica. A reference that is totally lost on my supercute sister-in-law Chloe and her supercute blonde BFF Tiffany with green eyes and lighter skin. But that similar coupling of two girls with contrasting features is not lost on me — and is one I love. So in celebration of opposites attracting and bestie beauty, I did mini-makeovers on the girls, highlighting eyes on Chloe and lips on Tiff with new products I brought with me to test while in California.
In typical best friend fashion, and given the #instaworthy nature of the two looks, we HAD to have a photoshoot. OBVI.
Here are my favorite shots…
