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.

to go for that day."
With Carson's help, Liz and Vanessa now look less Addams Family and more like their true selves. Carson took their hair down a few notches and applied makeup subtly to enhance—not hide—their features.
