First up: HAIR.

To get the look: First straighten your hair to have the best possible base to create curls.

For best results, you'll want to apply hair oil to the middle and ends of your hair before you start straightening.

For best results, you'll want to apply hair oil to the middle and ends of your hair before you start straightening.

Then, separate your hair into 1-inch sections, and using a 5/8" curling iron, start curling your hair in alternate directions.

Once you've got a full head of curls, take the tip of your curls and tease the ends. It'll give you a fuller head of hair.

Once you've done that, you can pin unruly curls in place with bobby pins, and loosen up the curls with your fingers for a bit more volume.

If you have longer hair, you can pin more of your hair to achieve this look.

Once you've got fierce AF hair, it's time to get your makeup done.

After applying foundation, apply a slightly darker foundation or contour powder to your cheekbones to define your cheekbones.

Then apply a warm, peachy blush to the apples of your cheeks. Then apply a highlighter to your cheekbones and the corners of your eyes.

Pair it with a soft, smoky eye.

And finish with a gorg soft rose lip!

The finished look? IT'S AMAAAAAAZING.
