Remember Aly & AJ? They're Back With a Really Cool New Beauty Vibe

In the summer of 2007, at the age of 15, if I was dancing around in my room singing into a hairbrush, it was to Aly & AJ's pop hit "Potential Breakup Song." With their smudgy eyeliner and bright blonde hair—one with straight, one with curly—the sisters and former Disney Channel stars (Alyson and Amanda Michalka, formally) were the sassy, edgy mid-2000s pop-rock stars of my teen dreams. Last fall, when the duo resurfaced with a new EP, Ten Years (in addition to a new version of "Potential Breakup Song"), reacquainting former stans with their charming personalities and hypnotic voices, we thought that was as good as it got. But as of 2018, Aly & AJ have even more new music (their new single, an infectious pop ballad called "Good Love," premiered last month), and they just wrapped up a multi-city tour. At 27 and 29, Aly & AJ also have a cool remastered beauty vibe to match their updated sound (one of them has gone brunette!). To my delight (and the delight of my 15-year-old self), I got to hop on the phone with Aly & AJ to talk all about their grown-up beauty routines, their best and cringiest makeup moments of the mid-2000s, and the single best glitter eye shadow for feeling like a rock star.
