Colorful, playful, and certainly over-the-top, this latest beauty story takes inspiration from one of the best-selling groups of all time. Photographer Shxpir transforms Alécia Morais, Cheyenne Carty, and Sahara Lin into T-Boz, Chilli, and the late, great Left Eye of TLC with beauty cues that are as literal as it gets. Hairstylist Lacy Redway modernly takes on graphically edgy, A-line bobs, textured braids and ponytails, and finger-curled waves aided by the deft-hand of colorist, Aura Friedman. Makeup by Michael Anthony is an equally daring take on the strong, extraordinary beauty of the CrazySexyCool gang with vivid liner, highlighted skin and bold lacquer lips throughout. Paired with the youthfully stylish picks from Carolina Orrico and you have a story that pushes the edge of futuristic beauty as much as it celebrates the past. How’s that for girl power?
