This lovely lady always exudes class, intelligence, and grace. She is also confident without being arrogant, making her a true standout beauty, inside and out. When it comes to beauty and hair, Alicia doesn't have to overdo it. As a natural beauty, she can keep it simple and sophisticated.

On our pages, Alicia is stunning in makeup that is kept to the basics. A little mascara and a hint of blush go a long way to enhance flawless skin like Alicia's. For great-looking skin, begin any makeup routine with clean, moisturized skin, and remember to always apply a sunscreen before going outdoors to protect your skin from harmful rays. Contrary to popular belief, African American women, regardless of skin tone, should always protect their skin from environmental hazards.
To achieve Alicia's lovely hair look, we recommend products that strengthen the hair while giving it the extra conditioning that it craves. Try moisturizing shampoo and conditioners. If you use a lot of styling products, try using a clarifying shampoo, then a leave-in conditioner. Here, Alicia's hair is softly beveled in lovely, loose curls. After the hair is shampooed and conditioned, blow-dry with a handheld tourmaline blow-dryer. Lightly brush the hair back with a soft bristled brush to achieve a soft blend. Using a thermal curling iron, place loose curls around the frame of the face and in the back area for volume. Lightly finger comb to loosen the curl pattern and style the hair.
