Euphoria’s makeup artistry team have brought a breath of fresh air to modern TV.
Using white eyeliner, irregular lines and shapes, bold colours, double wings, gems and plenty more techniques, the show’s MUA team is headed up by Doniella Davy – and she’s creating beauty moments that are anything but ordinary.
Each week she breaks down key looks for the episodes, and we’re hooked.
Showing that makeup can be more than skin-deep, there’s often lots of symbolism behind the looks.
Explaining an iconic Cassie look to fans from season two episode three, she wrote on Instagram: ‘The makeup goal was obviously to take Cassie to a Maddy-level of snatched, while showing the underlying manic state that Cassie’s been in as she tries to get Nate’s attention.
‘Initially I envisioned a soft baby blue for the liner until I realized how much more a stark white would show up on camera on @sydney_sweeney‘s skin tone.
‘The look had to pop so she could finally get Nate’s attention!
‘Conceptually, I loved the idea of creating a high impact look without the use of any vivid colors.
‘For a color devoid of “color,” white is actually super bold. It almost looks jarring in these stills – which I LOVE for this moment.
‘And then there’s the classic symbolism of white (purity and innocence) which is just a little bit ironic in this case.’

Maddy’s deep brown lip line is actually done using this product in a currently sold out shade called Endless Cacao.
