Dark, disturbing and raw, HBO’s Euphoria has captured more than the zeitgeist of Gen Z on-screen—the show's lead makeup artist, Doniella Davy, who’s previously worked on Barry Jenkins’ If Beale Street Could Talk and Moonlight, has created some of the most cohesive beauty identities seen on television. Creator Sam Levinson gave Davy carte blanche during the development of the looks; he wanted to see dynamic, expressive makeup on the entire cast rather than on one specific character. With influences ranging from VSCO and e-girls on Tik Tok and Instagram, ‘90s cult classics, and even Nina Simone, each character’s makeup is a visual language in and of itself—Zendaya’s glittering tear tracks, Hunter Schafer’s whimsical lids, Barbie Ferreira’s dominatrix-infused makeover, Alexa Demie’s razor-sharp liner, and Sydney Sweeney’s sweet girl next door, all reflect their past and present turmoil. Whether you’ve been reading fan theories all week or are just getting caught up, take a look back at the best beauty on the show, here.
