Bitch, you better be joking! Revealing all the beauty secrets by the makeup artist behind everything Euphoria: Donni Davy.
Euphoria appears to be the subject of much controversy, owing to its potentially negative impact on today's youth. However, you can't deny the artistry behind the stories, set design, colours, and, most importantly - the LOOKS.
Honestly, every episode had me anticipating the next, just so that I could see what Donni Davy had planned for all the characters. Ever since I saw Maddy line Lexi's lips with the Make Up For Ever lip pencil, I was determined to find out what else they were using on set. So, if you have also been curious, you are in the right place!
Weleda Skin Food
Spotted on the set of Euphoria is the Weleda Skin Food!
I am sure you have seen this product float around the beauty space for a while now. I first saw Mary from Love Island use this in her YouTube tutorials, and I was mesmerised by how incredibly good her skin looked post-application. It's everything I wanted the Milk Makeup Hydro-Grip Primer to be: insane hydration, mega grip, and plump, dewy skin.
I can imagine that she used this on everyone (including the boys) as it would have provided long-lasting hydration during long filming hours. If you have more of an oily skin type, Weleda also has a "light" rendition of the Skin Food to keep your skin hydrated without feeling greasy.
Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation
It totally makes sense that Donni Davy would use the Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation. It's one of my go-to recommendations for anyone searching for a genuine skin-like foundation that barely leaves a trace of makeup. I don't know if the price range is quite right for a bunch of high school kids, but if that sounds like a bit of you, definitely try out a sample at your nearest Chantecaille retailer.
Despite its undetectable formula, the Future Skin is surprisingly buildable and long-lasting. There is just something about the Future Skin that strikes the perfect balance between hydration and coverage that looks effortless. I especially love applying this product on mature beauty lovers looking for a beautiful foundation that is easy to perfect.
Westman Atelier Highlighter Stick, ‘Lit’.
Donni Davy's use of the Westman Atelier Highlight Sticks is fantastic because they are among the best highlighters for achieving a natural dewy effect.
This product represents the shift of highlight preferences within the beauty world: sweaty-in-a-good-way, born-with-it, and absolutely necessary. The gel-like translucent formula is my favourite thing about the Westman Atelier Highlight Stick. Not only will they suit a wide range of skin tones, but the dew that it creates is stunningly chic.
Westman Atelier Lit Up Highlight Stick, $78 NZD.
Stila Heaven’s Dew All Over Glimmer, ‘Silver Lake’.
Donni Davy is said to use the Make Up For Ever Star Lit Diamond Powders to delicately dust the characters. It creates a subtle light reflection that the film cameras pick up brilliantly. Turns out the Diamond Powders are difficult to get your hands on, but I have the perfect alternative for you. Enter: Stila Heaven's Dew All Over Glimmer in 'Silver Lake'.
The Stila Heaven's Dew is such an underrated product in the makeup world, and more people ought to know about it! The base is entirely translucent, which means that you are only left with fine, dazzling specks of sparkles. I also love to use it as an eyeshadow topper for every look.
Whether you are going for that high fashion, bare-skin glow, or you want to step up your glam - the Stila Heaven's Dew All Over Glimmer is a must-have.
Makeup Forever Artist Colour Pencil, ‘Endless Cacao’
The makeup looks in Euphoria are incredibly nuanced and specific for each character. For example, Maddy's Hispanic influence in her style and makeup wardrobe is reminiscent of style icons such as Selena. She often sports a dark brown lip liner with a nude shade or goes all out with a bold brown lip.
In an interview, Alexa Demie shared that Maddy uses the Make Up For Ever Lip Pencil in 'Endless Cacao'. Since then, I have checked out some of the other shades within the range, and I have never seen such a beautiful collection of cool-toned brown lip pencils. I am confident that every single one of you will be able to find the perfect shade that compliments your complexion at Make Up Forever.
Ultra creamy, long-lasting, and a durable pencil formula that is not prone to breakage - there is no such thing as too many lip liners when they are this good.
M.A.C Lipstick, ‘Ruby Woo’
No Surprises here: Donni Davy is also a Ruby Woo fan! The M.A.C Retro Matte glides onto even the driest of lips with ease while depositing an insane amount of pigment in a luxuriously matte formula.
Ruby Woo has been a classic for years, and it is a lipstick that I repurchase every so often. It has become a part of my permanent collection of reds because it survives every makeup trend storm - and for good reason. M.A.C really understood the assignment when it came to creating a universally flattering shade of red.
Ruby Woo is a blue-toned, medium red that is bright and beaming. Pair with M.A.C 'Cherry' lip pencil for a bullet-proof, sexy red that will turn heads wherever you go.
