The self-proclaimed cuties, a.k.a. Lauren Waterman and Alyssa Giacobbe, have been friends for ages, ever since they met while interning at Elle. They've spent the ensuing years writing and editing for various publications, including Elle (again!), Vogue, Teen Vogue, InStyle, Boston, and New York. Today, Lauren lives in Brooklyn with her husband, daughter, and one cat, while Alyssa lives in Newburyport with her husband, stepson, and two cats, and they talk to, Snapchat, or instant message each other pretty much daily about work, life, and, of course, makeup.
