The euphoria makeup looks created in this show are the perfect balance of ethereal and experimental.
Euphoria makeup is out of the box and may not be wearable daily. However, it is the perfect makeup look to wear for a concert, costume party, Halloween party or even when you want to have fun with your makeup. We bring to you a step by step breakdown of how you can achieve the euphoria inspired makeup look. Keep on reading to learn how you can replicate the euphoria look.
1. Eye makeup
The focal point of almost every euphoria-inspired makeup look is the eyes. To create a euphoria makeup look, your eyes need to be bold and do all the talking. Don’t be afraid to play around with different colours and glitters while doing your euphoria eye makeup. Let’s start with the basics first, which stay the same across the board.
Step 1: Take a primer and apply it to your lids. Let it set as this will ensure that the glitter sticks to the skin without sliding across your face.
Step 3: For your euphoria eye makeup, you can opt for the classic tones of silver or gold eyeshadow to add to your ensemble. If you choose gold, make sure to apply a little extra glitter eyeshadow on your lids to make it pop.
Step 4: Once you are happy with the placement of your glitter, take the same matte brown eyeshadow to buff it in your crease and blend it well.
Step 5: Now using a black eyeliner, draw a sharp wing. You can also opt for colourful eyeliners like the shades of brown or blue. If you want your euphoria eye makeup to pack a punch, you can also experiment with different graphic eyeliner styles. This will take your eye makeup up a notch and add more drama to your final look.
Step 6: The next step of your eye euphoria makeup is to fill in your eyebrows. Using your eyebrow pencil draw small strokes to add some volume to your lashes. Pro tip: Go for full and bushy eyebrows and make sure they look as natural as possible, without being too crusty or crunchy.
Step 7: Apply some mascara to your lashes to make them wispy and fluttery. As a finishing touch to your euphoria eye makeup, you can add some rhinestones to your eyes. You can place them on your lash line or your crease. This will add body to your eyes and make your euphoria-inspired makeup stand out.
2. Face makeup
While recreating a euphoria makeup look, keep the base makeup simple and minimal. You can follow the same process that you usually do i.e., using a foundation, concealer, contour, blush and highlighter.
Step 1: Take the Maybelline foundation and apply it all over face. Follow it up with a concealer that matches your skin tone. Pro tip: Keep the foundation and concealer very lightweight and minimal. This will help you attain a fresh and dewy base.
Step 2: Apply a light layer of contour and blush, while going slightly heavy-handed with the highlighter.
Step 3: Set it with a setting spray to lock your euphoria makeup!

3. Lip makeup
Who doesn’t love beautiful and pouty lips? For your bold eyes, a nude-toned pouty lip makeup will be a euphoric match!
Step 1: Using a lip liner, slightly overline your lips.
Step 2: Pick a ‘my lips but better’ nude lipstick shade for your lips and apply it evenly.
Step 3: Apply a lighter nude creamy lipstick to the centre of your lips and blend it with your ring finger. Applying a lighter shade in the centre will enhance the poutier look and make your lips appear fuller.
