Growing up in New York City, sisters Gloria (right) and Dianne strove to look like Dynasty characters. "My beauty regimen was all about glitter, hot rollers and lip liner," Vavra admits. Today, the sisters have scaled back and feel the result is more flattering. "I never noticed how pretty Gloria’s green eyes were until she lost the blue mascara," Vavra says. Morton concurs, pointing out how aging heavy makeup can be: "Dianne looks today the way I remember her as a teenager, when she was fresh-faced." Both say their current regimen is quicker than it used to be. "On a daily basis, I wear no more than a tinted moisturizer, mascara, tinted lip balm and maybe eyeliner," says Vavra, who, as an executive at Dior, could acquire zillions of high-quality products but has decided simple is better. Morton also subscribes to the less-is-more philosophy and has a skin care routine that consists of just an all-natural cleanser and moisturizer. She does, however, cop to applying a full face of makeup-albeit in softer colors than she donned in the 1980s-because, "At work, I have to be thisclose to people." Overall the sisters say they like what they see. "Maybe I’ve just come to accept my hair and face so I feel less compelled to improve’ them," Vavra says. "Regardless, I appreciate the extra time I’ve gained in the morning."
