Incase you haven’t heard, there’s a brand new girl group that’s hitting the scene. They go by the name L2M, which actually stands for “Listening 2 Music,” and if you’ve ever seen the movie LEGO Friends, then you’ve probably already heard their catchy power anthem called “Girlz.”
In the group, there’s the edgy Lexi, the passionate Mariangeli, the energetic McKenzie, the athletic Jenna, and the adorably cute Tati. I was really excited to get to meet with them during their concert debut in Soho, New York, which was actually packed with young kids, teens, and even adults. When I went to interview the girls (who are just 11 and 12, by the way!), I was greeted with five smiling faces, and talking to them literally made me feel like a little kid again. We chatted about fun things like their favorite hobbies, fashion, and of course, their music video for Girlz. When I asked them about the making of the video, McKenzie told me: “It was the best experience ever! We especially liked all the other girls who were in the music video, we liked the dance battle, and we got to come through and start start dancing. That was a really fun experience!”
I got to learn so many interesting things about the members of L2M, including the fact that they would love to work with artists like Justin Bieber, Beyonce, and Demi Lovato. But while I did enjoy talking about their music, one of the most fun parts of the interview was getting to chat about fashion and beauty. In fact, the excitement level pretty much skyrocketed whenever I mentioned those two topics. So if you’re curious to know what the girls had to say, check out these these 10 amazing pieces of advice from the girls of L2M!
1. Be confident because you’re perfect the way you are.
When I asked the girls what piece of advice they’d give to other young girls, Lexi immediately said: “Be who you are. Be confident and love yourself, don’t change for anyone.”
2. Be inspiring.
Tati agreed with similar advice. She said: “Be who you are, like our song. Be inspiring, you’re perfect the way you are, you don’t have to change to be anyone else.”
3. Don’t worry about people who try to bring you down.
Mariangeli said: “There are definitely people who are going to be rude or jealous, and you can’t let them bring you down or change you, because you are who you are and that makes you special.” And of course, McKenzie and Jenna were completely on board, agreeing with the advice that the other girls gave.
5. Wear outfits that showcase your personality.
I was so impressed by how stylish the girls looked in their black and white outfits, so I asked them about their fashion inspiration. Lexi said: “Honestly, as long as it’s my personality, as long as I love it and it’s me, that’s all I care about.”
6. Find a favorite brands that works for you, and stick with it.
Jenna said: “My favorite places to shop would be Abercrombie Kids or just Abercrombie in general, that’s me and MecKenzie’s store!” Then Mariangeli added: “I don’t know if they have these places because I live in Florida, but a store called Papaya, it’s so good!” The girls’ faces practically lit up and they all agreed. Tati chipped in: “I shop anywhere! You know, I just see something in the window and I’m like ‘I’m gonna get that!’ But I do love Forever 21!” McKenzie agreed and said: “I would say Forever21 too, and, I like this place a lot, it’s kind of expensive, but Topshop. They have really cute stuff there. And this is a shoe place, but me and Lexi are obsessed with Adidas!”
7. Take advantage of makeup and hair tutorials to step up your game.
When we got to the topic of makeup, the girls got so excited. I asked them about their favorite makeup brands and tips, and Lexi said: “I love watching makeup tutorials and doing makeup tutorials and like, hair videos and fashion tips.”
8. Lush, Sephora, MAC, and Ulta are the best places for beauty products.
When it came to their favorite beauty products I saw that “Lush” was a popular favorite. Lexi said: “For beauty I love Lush, I love Sephora, and the MAC store!” Jenna also agreed and added: “Lush is my favorite out of all of them. I love to go to Sephora and Ulta. Benefit makeup, I love to play around with, and MAC.” Then McKenzie said: “I would say MAC is my top place because I love that place so much. Also I like Sephora and Ulta. And Lush. I could never forget about Lush!” Tati also agreed: “I would say Lush, because it’s all natural.”
9. Drugstore makeup is actually awesome.
Though the girls are big fans of certain brands, they made it clear that they also really like drugstore makeup. McKenzie said: “I still like drugstore makeup, they have really good stuff!” Mariangeli also said: “Yeah, I went to the drugstore the other day and their lipstick was really good!”
10. It’s okay to just play around with makeup if you don’t want to wear much of it.
Makeup can be a lot of fun, but at the same time, if you’re really young, you don’t have to wear a lot. Tati said: “We’re still kids, so we don’t wear that much makeup, we just play around with it.”
