Start by washing with a shampoo and conditioner from Pantene Fine Hair Solutions. Then, on damp hair, apply the Triple Action Volume Mousse on her ends, followed by the Root Lifter Spray Gel in her roots to give volume and lift hair from the roots. Blow dry hair in sections with a small round brush and pin set each section. Once all hair is pinned, apply Touchable Volume Hairspray and let it set for 5 minutes. Finally, remove all pins, part hair in a deep side part, and take a flat paddle brush to soften the waves.
We started with a foundation that can provide coverage and hydrate skin such as Tone Rehab in Buff Beige #125. Then, we used a darker pressed powder to contour her features such as Clean Oil Control in Warm Beige #545 under the cheek bones. To highlight her face, we used Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush in Lush Berry #230 in the apple of her cheeks.
We chose copper shades from the Eye Enhancers 3-Kit Shadows in Dazzling Metallics to bring out her eyes. We intensified the eyes with a bold delineation in both the top and bottom lashes using LineBlast 24Hour Eyeliner in Enduring Black. To finish the eyes, we layered LashBlast Fusion Mascara to achieve a doll-eyes effect.
We used Blast Flipstick in Whisper, a nude pink that falls within the same color pallet we used on her cheeks.

Start by washing hair with Pantene’s Curly Hair Moisture Renewal Shampoo and Conditioner. Then, to help detangle use the Light Conditioning Detangler and add the Curl Defining Mousse to help define the curls. Use your fingers to scrunch hair and then dry with a diffuser. Take two strands of hair from each side of your front hairline and braid one of the strands on each side. Finally, wrap the braid around the second strand of hair all the way to the back and pin both sides together.
We started with Tone Rehab 2-in-1 Foundation in Medium Beige #142 and Simply Ageless Concealer in Light Medium #215 to even her skin tone. For her cheeks, we used Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush in Royal Plum #220 to give her a healthy, natural-looking glow.
We focused in her stunning brown eyes with chocolate shades such as Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Shadows in Brown Smolder. After, we used a brown eye liner pencil such as Liquiline Blast Eyeliner in Brown Blaze over the bottom lashes to create a soft line that would bring out the light caramel color of her eyes. To complete the eyes, we layered LashBlast 24Hour Mascara.
To add fullness to her lips and maintain a delicate, natural-looking feel, we chose a nude color such as Lip Perfection in Delish #255.

Start by washing hair with Pantene Normal to Thick Moisture Renewal Shampoo and Conditioner. Then, on hair still damp apply the Split End Repair Keratin Protection Crème to prevent split ends, followed by the Flowing Body Mousse to add body. After blow drying hair, use a curling iron to create waves and pin set each section. Once hair is completely pin set, use a diffuser’s heat to lock in more volume without touching the hair. Finally, remove all pins, and use a wide-tooth comb to loosen the waves.
To start, we applied Tone Rehab 2-in-1 Foundation in Golden Tan #157; it has great coverage and easy application. After, we illuminated her face with Simply Ageless Concealer in Light Medium #215 over the T-zone. To add a sun-kissed glow to her cheeks, we used Cheekers Bronzer to give skin a silky, satin feel.
We chose shimmering gold shades similar to her skin tone such as Intense ShadowBlast in Brown Bling and Beige Blaze. To intensify the eye we drew a line above the top lashes with LineBlast 24Hour Eyeliner in Enduring Black. Finally, we applied several layers of LashBlast 24Hour Mascara.
For the most important part of the look, her lips, we created a unique and colorful orange coral using Blast Flipstick in Cheeky.
