  • Makeup artist Tom Pecheux told us that in order to get such a lush lash, he was giving the girls a lot of black mascara on the top, followed by one layer of black mascara on the bottom lash line and then one layer of brown mascara. This gives the lashes a good contrast and opens up the eyes. Also, too much black mascara on the bottom "can just drag the eye down."

  • As always, the makeup look started with a fresh and flawless face. But Pecheux noted that this doesn't mean to cake on the foundation. He then added that the look was still pretty natural, with a cat eye created by blending a black eyeliner and a brown eyeliner together.

  • Hairstylist Orlando Pita told us that the hair look was "very beachy and sporty yet still has a glamorous, shiny look to it – not that dry beachy look." He also added that every girl was getting extensions to add body to their hair, and they all were able to choose their own parts – so the hair would not be identical across the board.

  • To get the body and hold the waves, Pita used Victoria's Secret Body and Hold Volumizing Mousse. And, when we asked him how to attempt to achieve this look ourselves, he was honest with us and simply said, "Don't." "Go to a hairstylist, it's a very intensive process because you honestly need extensions to get it to look like this, and then it needs to be blow-dried, and waved, and then the product....go to a stylist!" Don't say we didn't warn you, ladies!
