11 Facts About Us (22 total!) 
  • Sara: I have a twin sister. She's 5 minutes younger than me!
  • Angela: I'm half Chinese and half American. My mom is from China and my dad was born and raised in the United States.
  • S: I had pet chicks when I was little! We had to give them away when they got bigger :(
  • A: My favorite genre of movie is action! I know that's probably weird for a girl who is obsessed with fashion and beauty, but I love movies like Inception, the Adjustment  Bureau, Limitless, The Avengers, and the new Spider-man movie!! A little eye-candy doesn't hurt either, haha.
  • S: My favorite food is pizza. I literally love any kind of pizza and any toppings. I must be Italian or something!
  • A: I lived in Japan for 7 months when I was a baby, and I lived in China for a year when I was 10. By the time I was one year old, I had spent most of my life in Japan. And while I lived in China, I went to a Chinese public school in Beijing!
  • S: I'm Iranian/Persian. I moved to the United States when I was 10 years old.
  • A: I wrote a novel when I was in 7th grade. We were assigned it for language arts class, and mine ended up being 21,000 words long. A year later, I participated in a challenge called NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) where you write a 50,000 word novel in a month!
  • S: I play the piano and flute. I've been playing the piano for about nine years now, and the flute for five. 
  • A: My first makeup product was an eyeshadow from Victoria's Secret. It was a rather dark purple, and I think I just used it on my lashlines.
  • S: My first makeup product was CoverGirl Lashblast! I took it from my mom!
  • A: I was very ambitious as a young child. I wanted to be everything from a chemist to a historian to an author!
  • S: I was the nosiest little child you would ever meet. I would literally follow people around to see what they were doing!
  • A: My favorite flavor of cake is red velvet! So delicious. I have no more words.
  • S: I have close family in every continent except Africa and Antarctica. (Someone needs to move to Antarctica soon).
  • A: The reason I love makeup and fashion so much: I did ballet when I was little, so we always wore pretty costumes and put on makeup for performances, I loved it! One of my ballet teachers called me Angelina Ballerina :)
  • S: The reason I love makeup and fashion so much: I would always watch my mom put on makeup when I was little, and I would ask for some and she would put a little bit of lip gloss on me, and I loved putting on makeup with my friends (using my mom's makeup!)
  • A: I'm a city girl at heart. I lived in Boston for most of my life and I plan on moving to a big city (if possible) when I get older.
  • S: My favorite subject in school is math! It sounds crazy how I love beauty and math at the same time, they're total opposites, but I do!
  • A: I run track! My dad is also a runner, and my mom did track in school and in college, but I hated running until I joined track during middle school. I've gone on to participate in high school, and love my team!
  • Both: We've been best friends for (what feels like) centuries. We do everything together, and we're planning to go to New York IMATS senior year!! <3
