Janis Ian Makeup Tutorial
Janis Ian and Damian are best friends and were the first to welcome new girl, Cady Heron, to their high school. They are considered the outcasts of the school because they aren’t afraid to show that they are different. Janis Ian is very opinionated and has an avant-garde sense of style while Damian is openly gay and easy-going.
Janis Ian prefers a more punk-gothic look while Damien is more into casual like open button-downed shirts and hoodies. However, both of them did clean up their looks for Spring Fling by wearing matching purple suits.
