These Are The Exact Makeup Products Used On Season 2 Of Euphoria

HBO's critically acclaimed cinematic drama series "Euphoria" is currently in the midst of Season 2. The long-awaited season came after a two-year hiatus in filming due to COVID restrictions.

The costumes and makeup in "Euphoria" seem to transcend trends and land in another atmosphere. The female characters, especially Maddy (Alexa Demie), Jules (Hunter Schafer), and Cassie (Sydney Sweeney), wear outfits that are so outlandishly eye-catching it's hardly believable that a high schooler would actually wear them. Yet, each ensemble still speaks to the character's personality perfectly. But this is partly why we love this show. Looking this way is entirely normal in "Euphoria"'s hyperrealistic interpretation of what it's like to be a teenager in America.

If you paid attention closely to Season 1, you might have noticed glitter used in the girls' makeup so frequently that it may even have been considered a theme of the show. Even Rue (Zendaya), who normally goes makeup-free, wore glitter on her eyes in several episodes — you may even remember her memorable glitter tears. It all makes sense when the show's head makeup artist, Doniella Davy explains to Allure, "There are subliminal emotional messages always in all the makeup." So, it may be surprising to hear that Season 2 is going completely glitter-free. We found out the details from "Euphoria"'s on-set makeup artist and what products she'll be using instead during the current season.

The makeup on Season 2 is refined and subtle

For those worried that without glitter "Euphoria"'s makeup looks will be boring — well, don't be. The stars on the hit HBO series are still donning some of the most unique and adventurous beauty looks seen on television — even if you need to look a little closer. Doniella Davy told Us Weekly that this season, she's describing the looks as "discoverable" as opposed to in-your-face. The eye makeup is especially striking. Think, dramatic winged liner, graphic elements, neon colors, white whiskers, and retro throwbacks.

Davy revealed the products she used to achieve this season's innovative looks to Allure. To score the abstract, painterly makeup we'll see on Jules, she used the long-wearing pigment Colorfix 24-Hour Cream Color by Danessa Myricks. For the highly pigmented eye shadows that look gorgeous on screen, Davy and her team turn to ColourPop's palette selection. Next episode, pay attention to Kat's experimental eye looks to see this product in action. The iconic twists on the classic winged eyeliner seen on Maddy are half the reason we tune in. Although these expert eyes would be hard for an amateur to achieve at home, we are inspired to give it a try with Inglot's AMC Eyeliner Gel 77.

Davy also enhances the naturally fresh complexions of the cast by using tinted sunscreens instead of the thick foundations often used for most television shows. Her top pick is the Colorescience Sunforgettable Total Protection Face Shield Glow.
