Long story short, i started weighlifting 6 months ago. Im a 20 year old girl, i weigh 63kg and i am about 5ft11.
I see photos of girls with really skinny legs and bodies yet huge bums and i dont get how. Currently i dont do any cardio, i admit i could eat more healthy and generally up my calorie intake to build muscle.
But how do I get that myself? Should i do cardio alongisde weights? for leg day i do go heavy on squats, deads etc and my workout plan is good but it just all confuses me how both can be possible at once.
I'll attach a photo of the girls im referring to and a photo of my legs for comparison. my thighs are probably the fattest part of my body and i find it almost impossible to lose fat from them. helpppp

You have a fab figure!! That girl is really sticking her bum out. Some girls do naturally have bigger bums even when they're skinny so it's probably a combination of that. A lot of women do have that Brazilian butt lift too (though that girl in the picture looks pretty natural - just lucky).*
I'm like you, in that through squatting I tend to be more quad dominant. Try some more glute focused exercises like glute bridges, split squats, lunges etc - I find they actually focus on the right areas. As for cardio, there's no harm in doing it alongside your weightlifting as long as you're giving your body some time to recover!*
