Introducing Ask GG: The Beauty Experts

Happy hump day, y'all! I'm super excited to introduce my good friends, Ghadah (pronounced GA-DAH) and Ghadeer (pronounced GAH-DEER), who will be contributing regularly as beauty experts!

I've know Ghadah and Ghadeer since High School. I’ll never forget the first day of 10th grade, when we all wore glitter stretch jeans to school! Ghadah (left) wore hers with a blue top and sandals, Ghadeer wore hers with pink (her signature color), and I wore mine with red! We thought we were hot stuff!

“The twins,” which is what most people call them, have always been over-the-top fashionable and I’ve always considered myself to lucky to have such stylish (and sweet!) friends. They encouraged me to put an effort into my appearance and they supported my attempt, fashion faux pas and all, including these embarrassing cheetah print stretch pants! FACE PALM!

I think their constant support was a big reason why I had so much confidence despite the fact that I was overweight. They taught me to dress up and wear makeup anyway! They always thought I "fit in," and so, I felt like I did!

In recent years, they've introduced me to some of my favorite beauty products, such as Dr. Perricone face wash and moisturizer, which cleared up my oily, breakout-pone skin. They’ve put me onto a host of other products too-- everything from teeth whiteners (and teeth whitening techniques) to shampoos to stretch mark removers (they exist!) to the best mascaras, blushes and makeup bags!

Over the years, their fashion and beauty sense, and their wardrobe (makeup, handbags, shoes, perfume and accessories included), have all grown tremendously and for a few years, the two even worked as Beauty Consultants for the trendy beauty-supply chain, Beauty First. For these reasons, they’re the first ones I turn to with my beauty questions and … drum roll please, now you can too!

What’s all this mean?
