#FeelEuphoria: How Euphoria is Inspiring Some of the Biggest Makeup Trends of 2019

There’s no doubt that Euphoria, the new HBO show that aired this June, has been a major conversation starter. Powerful, boundary-pushing beauty looks filled the streets and some of your own makeup looks may have been inspired by the characters on the show. If you’re on social media or walking around the city, you are bound to see people with bold colors on their lids, rhinestones, glitter, and graphic eyeliner.

The trending hashtag, #feeleuphoria showcases some of the most iconic looks from the show. Below I compiled a few of my fave looks and recreations for each character. Check it out!

Maddy

Alexa Demie’s character, Maddy, is the popular it-girl whose eyelids are always decked out with rhinestones. In the Instagram post featured below, Doniella writes, “I designed her makeup to have a fantastical element to it because despite her fierce outward personality, Maddy is a diehard Romantic who wants to transcend the “loveless marriage” that is her home life.”

PSA: There’s more to Maddy’s makeup than rhinestones and cat-eyes! 🙀💎Underneath her elaborate armor, Maddy feels the pain of crushed childhood dreams and a psychotic and abusive boyfriend. I designed her makeup to have a fantastical element to it because despite her fierce outward personality, Maddy is a diehard Romantic who wants to transcend the “loveless marriage” that is her home life. Swipe to see some of my favorite looks that @kirinrider gorgeously brought to life, always adding her own unique flair! The last pic was just a random makeup test that I did on Alexa before we started filming, but I think it fits in with this post. #euphoriahbo #euphoriahbomakeup #rhinestones #rhinestonebrows #rhinestoneeyes #feeleuphoria #euphoriamaddy

Jules

Hunter Schafer plays Jules,  a transgender girl who expresses herself through her colorful eye looks and anime school girl mixed with edgy inspired fashion. Jules’ graphic and bold colored eye looks have inspired many to step outside of the box than their typical neutral looks.

Rue

The main character and narrator, Rue, is played by none other than the iconic, Zendaya. She doesn’t wear much makeup in the show, but does occasionally wear intentionally messy glitter on her lids, stick on stars, and glitter shaped like teardrops.

“I’ll do 25 to life, if it makes me a King — a star in your eyes,” – Labrinth, All for Us. This song lyric connection was a divine coincidence. Thank you @alexelijahc for pointing this out! The Episode 8 glitter tears (on the right) were meant to be a gritty & real version of the hallucinated gold glitter tears in the blanket fort in Episode 2 (the bottom image) and the big iridescent star was meant to tie into the billboard image from Episode 1 (on the left). P.S. Did anyone notice when the iridescent star disappeared in Episode 8? Definitely some meaning there 💔 // A complete breakdown of Rue’s winter formal look is coming soon, as well as a breakdown of the process and concept behind the silicone-encapsulated gold glitter tear prosthetics used on the dancers during the final scene. #euphoriahbo #euphoriahbomakeup #rueeuphoria #glittertears

Kat

Kat, played by Barbie Ferreira, starts off in the show feeling insecure about herself but as the show continues, she loses her virginity then becomes authentically herself. Kat’s fashion and makeup displays her change in identity. She wears clothes that show her curves and her makeup becomes edgy and bold.

Cassie

Cassie, played by Sydney Sweeney, is the sweet, but super popular girl who’s one of Maddy’s friends. Cassie struggles with relationships as sexual rumors spread about her, which causes her to feel uneasy. Her makeup consisted of smokey eyes and flushed cheeks, but the Halloween episode makeup stood out the most when she was Alabama Worley from True Romance

Cassie’s Alabama Worley from True Romance, Euphoria, Episode 6. Swipe to see pics & vid of my makeup test with @sydney_sweeney who is covering one eye because I didn’t have time to test on both eyes 🤷‍♀️ This look was all about letting Sydney’s eyes get a turn to sparkle! I love the effect this glitter has throughout the whole episode, including the very stressful dorm room scene with McKay, which was beautifully acted by @itsalgee and @sydney_sweeney // Makeup in the film stills applied by @kirinrider // PRODUCTS: @maybelline color tattoo liner applied all over the lid with a concealer brush (I do that a lot when I don’t want a blendy look), @lemonhead.la turcoise glitter, @yslbeauty lipstick, @ctilburymakeup magic foundation & @beccacosmetics concealer in the pot. #euphoriahbo #euphoriahbomakeup #feelsomething #euphoriacassie #alabamaworley
