Makeup Looks We Love From HBO's "Euphoria" | Clozette


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.

Zesty florals


Flower by Kenzo Eau de Vie



Flower by Kenzo has also been a favourite among girls who enjoy the subtle scents brought by a floral flourish. This eau de parfum is described as a “love-at-first-scent fragrance,” an olfactory melody that makes you want to use again and again. This Kenzo fragrance features a zesty ginger note combined with a joyful orange blossom, that pairs well with Bulgarian rose and Tonka bean. 


Sweet rose


Floraiku Just A Rose


Looking for some classic floral choices from all the must-have fragrances that were released this 2019? Well, nothing can be more feminine than smelling like a rose with Just A Rose from the Enigmatic Flowers Ikebana Collection of Floraïku. This Eau de parfum offers a new take on our favourite rose scent. A sparkling floral, the first whiff of this scent gives the impression of a “rose that has just been freshly picked at the first light of dawn.” Dewy and sweet, the fragrance warms on the skin, revealing the honeyed-sweetness of guaiac wood oil. Meanwhile, bergamot oil also elevates the fragrance brought about by this perfume. Just A Rose comes in indigo and white floral box, each bottle of 50ml is accompanied by its own intricately-designed purse spray.



Elegant bouquet


A bottle of Vera Wang Perfume by Vera Wang



Vera Wang's first-ever fragrance for women, Vera Wang Perfume, carries the modern and sensual spirit that her bridal designs are known for. Her signature perfume for women combines an intoxicating blend of florals like Bulgarian rose, calla lily, and Mandarin flower, along with notes of gardenia, sheer musks, and white woods. Elegant and exquisite, the scent was made to be a sensory bouquet for the modern-day bride.




For a young rebel


Signorina Ribelle


Made with a woman who's a multitude of paradoxes — independent yet romantic, fierce but kind — Salvatore Ferragamo's new Signorina fragrance, aptly named Ribelle, is perfect for a young rebel. Expect the unexpected with a blend of sweet and spicy scents — mandarin and red pear paired with pink pepper. It's floral but woody and filled with whimsy.

We all love retinol — it prevents acne, stimulates collagen production, and keep fine lines at bay. But as great as it may be, retinol has one major flaw: it can be irritating to those with sensitive skin. Even those who have a more tolerant skin type also report dryness and peeling especially during the first few applications. Luckily, many brands are now incorporating a new gentler alternative called Bakuchiol. It's been proven to deliver retinol-like effects sans the harshness and is being studied as a possible cancer treatment. Curious? Keep reading to know more about this hot skincare ingredient.


It's 100% vegan



Bakuchiol is purely plant-based, which makes it great for those who don't want to use animal-derived skincare ingredients. Psoralea corylifolia, the plant which Bakuchiol is extracted from, has actually been used in traditional Ayurveda practices and Chinese medicine for many years for its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties long before its retinol-like effects were explored.


Its side effects are less harsh


Bakuchiol functions the same way as retinol. It encourages cell turnover and stimulates collagen to reveal fresh skin that will keep the complexion smooth and clear. Although Bakuchiol is a gentler ingredient, this process will still make your skin more photosensitive and may still cause some peeling. In other words, the side effects will still be there. But, it's significantly dialled down compared to using retinol. 


Studies about Bakuchiol are limited


Even though there's a lot of buzz around Bakuchiol, the truth is that studies about this promising skincare ingredient are still in its infancy. Unlike retinol, which has been thoroughly studied through the years, we have yet to discover the long-term effects of using Bakuchiol. But still, the study published by the British Journal of Dermatology, which concluded that "bakuchiol is comparable with retinol in its ability to improve photo ageing and is better tolerated than retinol" is still impressive. But just like any other skincare trends, practising caution in using this ingredient is still a must. Never forget to do patch testing first!


It may not be a sustainable alternative


Yes, Bakuchiol is vegan and cruelty-free but here's the catch — Psoralea corylifolia is an endangered plant. So while this alternative may be good news for us, it's not so much a treat for the sustainability movement. However, some processes like in-vitro micropropagation are being studied to find a way to both prevent this plant from becoming further endangered and meet the demand of the consumers.
