They say you should look for some positive aspects in every situation. Well, if anything, quarantine has blessed us with an opportunity to step out of our comfort zones with …(you know what’s coming) …MAKEUP!
Yes, I know you’ve seen new, trendy eye shadow looks ALL over your Instagram feed today. But trust me, this will be worth a read. So hang on and enjoy the ride.
Now, I’m sure you’ve all heard of the new HBO show Euphoria. The series has garnered critical acclaim for its unique yet strikingly realistic portrayal of adolescents in society. However, Euphoria is renowned for more than just its sensational plot. The show is a melting pot of iconic fashion styles and makeup looks that will make you feel euphoric! (get it? Euphoric…euphoria :P)
So without any further delay, let’s delve into this aesthetically electrifying cinematic journey:
1. Become a Powerpuff Girl for the Day
Life’s been looking pretty dull lately, so why not add some color? This look will make you feel like a total queen! However, it’ll certainly be incomplete without some confetti. So don’t forget that step! Become a Powerpuff girl for the day with some sugar, spice and everything nice!
2. Embrace Your Emo Self
If you’re anything like me, you absolutely cannot express your emotions effectively. But with this makeup look, are you safe from that struggle? I sure think so! To achieve this, all you have to do is mix some facial glitter with water. Outline the tears and dash the sparkles. All done!
3. Smash With the Lash
They say you should keep your friends close…but your enemies closer. However, I think this look will simply scare everyone away! Don’t we all want that feeling of power, though? So for these iconic eyes, just stick the longest false eyelashes you can find with the strongest eyelash glue available!
4. Neon Eyes-With a Twist
Everyone’s been recreating this look…even Kendall Jenner! So set a challenge for yourself! Take any two bright shades, an eye shadow brush and get going!
There’s so many more looks I want to talk about, but I think I should stop myself here. (For now at least!) Maybe we can have a part 2?
Nevertheless, I understand that some of these might be quite difficult to recreate. I mean, I’m no makeup guru myself. But here’s two positive points you can take from this: (See, I told you, you can find some positives in every situation)
- You have to agree – it’s quite exhilarating to even read about such iconic looks.
- We all have quite a bit of time to spare nowadays. Therefore, you can let out your inner artist and try to recreate these! I’m sure you’ll rock them!
Hats off to the Euphoria makeup artist Doniella Davy for completely shifting our makeup game! These looks have not only become a Tiktok trend but are also an inspiration for fashion shows now!
I’m really hoping Season 2 of Euphoria changes the spectrum again! What do you think will be the next ‘big thing’ in the makeup industry? Let us know!
