Watch Two BFFs Swap Their Best Fall Beauty Tips

There's no shame in falling into a makeup-routine rut every now and again. We get it: That everyday look you can create on muscle memory alone is super convenient as you're running out the door, but taking the time to discover a new liner technique or fresh contouring trick is undeniably exciting.
So with fall right around the corner, what better way to breathe a little life into your routine than with the help of someone who already knows you (and your features) best — your BFF. Enter: Maya and Shideh, two friends who also happen to be professional makeup artists. Together with Target Beauty, we asked them to share their best tips for creating two of fall's most on-trend looks — which may or may not include a totally extra (in the best way possible, of course) stacked cat-eye and an oh-so-glossy lip. Check out the video above to watch it all go down, then grab a friend for a little routine revamp of your own. Because when it comes to beauty, two is far from a crowd.
