Anyone who claims they haven’t done their makeup in the backseat of a car, cab, or any mode of public transport is most likely lying to you. Unless your morning routine reads like that of a celeb (4am wakeup call, followed by hot water and lemon, chakra re-alignment, meditation, six thousand email replies), chances are you’re familiar with the following scenario: Hit snooze button for the tenth time, set world record for quickest ever shower, run out of house in a flurry (coffee in one hand, makeup bag in the other), ready to tackle your face en route to wherever it is you’re running late to.
We understand, you guys. That’s why we’re going #BTDS (behind the driver’s seat) to find out how we can best copy the speedy makeup routines of our favourite girls and trick the world into thinking we’re high-functioning morning people along the way. In light of Fragrance Week, we set our sights on the Vreeland sisters…
Based on the first 30 seconds of this video alone, it’s not hard to imagine why Caroline and Alexandra Vreeland top our list of ~girl crushes~. The next 9 or so minutes do more than just substantiate this. They offer a humorous, kawaii look into the lives of two sisters whose daily beauty routines often take place in the backseat of a car. Informative? Yes. Endearing? Absolutely.
ICYMI, the Vreeland sisters are the great granddaughters of inimitable fashion legend, Diana Vreeland. While they’ve clearly inherited Diana’s incredible genes (chic, beautiful, clever), they have both carved out a name for themselves and enamoured the industry while doing so—Caroline as a singer, and Alexandra in marketing and digital at Diana Vreeland Parfums.
Watch them crack jokes, apply makeup to each other, be the cutest people ever, and offer up invaluable on-the-go tips below…
