Just when we thought we’d stopped swooning over the double fantasy of Issa Rae and Yara Shahidi simultaneously on Marie Claire covers, the magazine blessed us with a little behind-the-scenes confessional action, revealing some of the quirks, guilty pleasures and favorite things of two of the season’s freshest talents.

Maiysha Kai is Managing Editor of The Glow Up, an avid eyeshadow enthusiast and always her own muse. Nuance is her superpower.
