Miami natives Liz and Julia Nolan are the only twins that made it this year into “MODE’s World’s 100 Most Beautiful Women 2016” list. Although they had been modeling for some time, the twins got their major break when they were cast on CBS’ Big Brother 17, as the ‘Twin Twist,’ with Liz scoring runner up. They now have a regular and active fan following and have become part of the celebrity scene in Miami and LA. They are graduates in business marketing & journalism from the university of Loyola – New Orleans. The twins are at #37 in 2016’s MODE’s World’s 100 Most Beautiful list.
MODE: Now that your social media following is growing would consider yourself more as trendsetters of trend followers? Liz & Julia: We’re very active on social media and stay on top of all the new trends. We also like to make our own trends; we like to stay one step ahead of the game!
MODE: Give us your quick beauty tips? Liz & Julia: We have one rule: we never go to bed with makeup on. No matter how hard we partied the night before, it’s so important to keep the face clean while you sleep. Also, we’re HUGE into moisturizing. After we get out of the shower, we never towel dry, we just go straight for the moisturizer.
MODE: You two are super active and seem to travel a lot. Is that enough to keep you in shape or do you have to do more? Liz & Julia: We’re very busy girls; our schedules are pretty full. However, we always make time, at least one hour a day, for some kind of exercise; running, biking, walking, or yoga. Plus, we’re only 25 so our metabolism is still in our favor!

MODE: With your Italian heritage how can you resist all the delicious food that surrounds you when you are with family or do you just go for it?
Liz & Julia: We rarely diet; however we usually eat pretty healthily. Sunday is usually our cheat day; we have a huge Italian family dinner with lots of pasta and mama’s meatballs!
MODE: What places do you two visit when not working? Liz & Julia: We live in Miami, so the Florida Keys is one of our favorites. It’s a little over an hour away, and it always feels like a sweet escape. We love to go on the boat, fishing, and of course, wining & dining!
MODE: Apart from modeling, what other activities will you be getting into? Liz & Julia: Post-Big Brother life has been pretty crazy; answering fan mail, meetups, and staying active on social media. We just launched our own line of designer bandanas, they’re unique and add a little flair to any outfit. You can check them out on NolanTwins.com/shop. Who knows what the future will hold, perhaps Amazing Race on CBS.
MODE: What would you say are the key traits for success? Liz & Julia: Go for it! If you have a good idea, don’t be afraid to tackle it. Also, promote yourself and invest time in YOUR personal brand.
