HBO’s Euphoria has made waves on social media with its excellent merging of teenage reality and fantasy escapism — not to mention the brilliant makeup work conceptualized by the lead makeup artist of the show, Doniella Davy. With pigmented eyeshadow, loads of rhinestones, and a ton of glitter, the show sparked a lot of recreations of the show’s signature looks. Here are just some of our favourite Euphoria makeup looks and how you can recreate them yourself.
Cassie's Teal Blue Fantasy
This teal-aquamarine moment was a stark contrast to Cassie’s real-life situation. The heaps of rhinestones used in creating this look just completed the entire visual of a dreamy, innocent fantasy of a lady caught between childhood and adulthood. Doniella used Maybelline’s Colour Tattoo in a green/turquoise shade as an eyeshadow base and used Colourpop’s Super Shock shadow on top, finishing it with the signature rhinestones.
Maddy’s Purple Cat-Eye With Rhinestones
Yet another rhinestone moment in the Euphoria world, this look perfectly captures the character’s fierce yet hopeless romantic personality while adding that trademark fantastical aspect. A pro tip to achieve this look: layer shadows within the same shade range with tape to maintain that winged line. Keep your brows brushed up and natural with clear eyebrow gel to keep the focus on your eyes.
Jules’ Glitter Tears
A signature amongst Euphoria makeup looks, Zendaya’s character has artfully placed glitter tears running down her cheeks. Loose pigment eyeshadows with a glitter primer can help you in remaking this look. Add a single star glitter for a more eye-catching effect.
Rue’s White Eyeliner
This simple liner art can be quite tricky to do, but it's not impossible to achieve. Here's how: With a fine white liquid liner, carefully draw a cloud from the middle of your eyelid to the outer edge of your lower lash line. Just remember that it doesn't have to be perfect at first, and try again as needed.
