The Girls of TEEN Share Their Style Essentials

Check out fashion and beauty tips from upcoming band TEEN whose style is as unique as their psychedelic sound.

Sure their name is TEEN, but with euphoric synths and transcendent vocals, this band’s music is anything but awkward.

Featuring Here We Go Magic’s former keyboardist, Kristina (Teeny) Lieberson, as well as her sisters Katherine and Lizzie, and longtime friend, Jane Herships, TEEN is a Brooklyn-based female band who wants their music to speak for itself. Upon hearing their dark, almost haunting, sound, it won’t take you long to drop any preconceived notions you may harbor about girl groups. Major sites from Interview magazine to Pitchfork featured TEEN in the last month alone, and Stereogum even distinguished them as one of the best new bands of 2012.

With an eerie electric vibe, heavily reminiscent of Sonic Boom—who mixed and produced their album—it's easy to imagine TEEN fitting in perfectly the '80s trance soundtrack from the movie Drive. Whether it’s Katherine’s heart-pounding drums, Teeny’s chanting or piercing electric guitars, their music will grip you and have you dancing before the second verse. As if their sound wasn’t cool enough, each girl has sensational style and awesome recommendations about maintaining her look on the road. Read on for their picks:

Dr. Hauschka Facial Toner

Katherine's Pick

"We all use their Toned Day Cream. I also love this toner. It's a great base for moisturizer and helps keep skin clear and toned. Plus it's all-natural. I once had a dermatologist tell me Dr. Hauschka products are so natural you could eat them!"

Glossy Modeling Putty

Katherine's Pick

"Now that I have short hair I need a good styling product. I like Davines No. 4 Glossy Modeling Putty. It gives good volume and control without being too greasy or heavy."

Pamela Love Skinny Quartz Cuff

Jane's Pick

"I was given a Pamela Love eagle talon necklace as a gift, and even though I don't really wear jewelry, I always have it with me as a kind of talisman or charm.  I think I may try to find an excuse to wear this piece of hers though."

Dr. Haushka Toned Day Cream
