Liz and Vanessa, before
PAGE 4
When it comes to beauty, the adage "like mother, like daughter" usually rings true. While most girls learn to use mascara and moisturizer from their moms, Vanessa, a 16-year-old from Illinois, learned that and more from her mother, Liz.

When Carson meets Liz and Vanessa for the first time, this mother-daughter duo is dressed in full makeup and hair...and it's only 9:30 a.m. "You're totally done up like you're going to Caesars Palace or something," he says.

Every week, Liz says she and Vanessa devote 20 to 25 hours on maintaining their over-the-top looks. "The hair takes about an hour itself, maybe longer," Vanessa says. "It depends on how big I'm going to go for that day."

Liz and Vanessa even dress alike, wearing almost all black from head to toe. "It was like The Addams Family when I got there," Carson says.
