    I Tried Jules' Makeup Looks From "Euphoria" For A Week

    So many makeup wipes.

    Hello, world. My name is Ehis and there are three things I love most in this world: makeup, affordable goods, and Euphoria.

    Now, even though Euphoria has been over for a week, it's STILL been on my mind. Specifically? THE MAKEUP.

    HBO

    Iconic.

    So, when I found out that the makeup artist of Euphoria, Donna Doni, used ColourPop products on set, I immediately wanted to try these looks for myself.

    I was terrified since I usually shy away from colorful makeup looks, but I really wanted to challenge myself!

    As amazing as all the makeup looks are on the show, I decided to replicate seven of Jules' most iconic looks and document my week long journey:

    Day 1: "Head In The Clouds"

    Difficulty: 4/10. I'm no MUA — and Hunter Schafer had Donni Davi draw the clouds on her, whereas I had to draw the clouds on myself — but once I got over the fear of making the first mark, it wasn't super hard!

    Time: ~10 minutes.

    Longevity: ALL DAY! I drew a swatch of the white eyeliner on my hand and at 10 P.M., when I took my makeup off, IT WAS STILL THERE.

    Would I wear this again: Yes. This was such a fun and simple look that you could make as subtle or as bold as you'd like.

    Day 2: "Welcome To Flavor Town"

    Difficulty: 3/10. Again, not an MUA here and I've never worked with a loose pigment before, but I did some test tries with a mixing medium and water until I got a pretty good consistency for the shadow. After that, it was smooth sailing.

    Time: 10-15 minutes.

    Longevity: The yellow started to flake-off midday, but that might have something to do with the mixing medium I used. I bet if I finessed it a bit more, I could get it to last longer.

    Would I wear this again: I ~personally~ would not because this is pretty out of my comfort zone, but I did love pushing the boundaries.

    Loose Pigment in the color Fool 4 U. Get it from ColourPop for $6.

    *I also used a drugstore mixing medium, but it's not 100% needed for this look. Just a preference.

    Day 3: "Glitter Bomb!"

    Shelby Heinrich/BuzzFeed

    Difficulty: 1/10. So easy! I didn't even need a makeup brush. I just used my finger and then the eyeliner. Though, do have makeup wipes on hand so you don't wind up with sparkles everywhere.

    Time: ~5 minutes.

    Longevity: All day. That orange eyeliner didn't budge.

    Would I wear this again: Heck yes. It's very similar to my normal eyeshadow look, except with an added a pop of color. Def will be doing this look again.

    Day 4: "Geek in the Pink"

    HBO
    Shelby Heinrich/BuzzFeed

    Difficulty: 6/10. This was, for sure, the most difficult look thus far. The time to put years of binge-watching beauty YouTube videos to good use finally arose. (And, dare I say it: it paid off???) *PRO TIP* This is optional, but before I packed on the pink shadow, I outlined my lid with a pink eyeliner to help the color stick to something. You don't have to do that — the shadow is pretty pigmented on its own — but I definitely think it helped!

    Time: ~20 minutes.

    Longevity: Y'all. The vibrancy of this pink held up ALL DAY. I had a post-work event that day and didn't get home until around 11 p.m., and it still looked as vibrant as when I first applied it.

    Would I wear this again: I actually think I would! I know it's a lil' avant-garde, but this has been my fave look on my face thus far. I truly think that this is the most universally flattering of them all.

    Day 5: "Watermelon Wonderland"

    HBO
    Ehis Osifo/BuzzFeed

    Difficulty: 5/10. Again, I did that eyeliner-as-the-eyeshadow base trick and it really helped with this look! It wasn't super hard, but you do need a light hand because it would be very easy to over-blend this look and have it look like a mess.

    Time: ~20 minutes.

    Longevity: I went to a party that night and it held up! Some of the green color faded a bit since it was a shimmer and not a matte, but still looked fun, funky, and fresh.

    Would I wear this again: This was def out of my comfort zone, but I think I'd wear this look again! Maybe not all three colors at the same time, though. Might replace one of the colors with a more neutral color to make this look a bit more everyday.

    Day 6: "Line in the Sand"

    Zack Messick/BuzzFeed

    Difficulty: 1/10. This was the easiest look this week by a MILE.

    Time: 2 minutes.

    Longevity: Once this shadow dried down it didn't run, budge, or smudge. I went to dinner and then bar-hopping and this didn't let me down!

    Would I wear this again: I would, but I'd need to add more to it. After this week of out-there looks, this one seemed so plain! I felt like I was missing a pop of color or something.

    Product used:

    Supernova Shadow in the color Juvenile. Get it from ColourPop for $7.50.

    Day 7: "A Rose By Any Other Name"

    Shelby Heinrich/BuzzFeed

    Difficulty: 7.5/10. Wowza. I saved the best and hardest for last. This was pretty difficult, but I'm extremely pleased — and low-key shocked — by the result. Of all the looks this week, this was the one I was most proud of.

    Time: 25-30 minutes.

    Longevity: I went to go see Carly Rae Jepsen, which was basically a 3-hour long dance party, and not a single speck of glitter was out of place!

    Would I wear this again: Absolutely. This look was so fun and mixed my normal neutral look with the glittery aesthetic that is synonymous with Euphoria. Best of both worlds, IMO.

    Overall, as scared as I was at the beginning of the week, I'm really glad I did this. It definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone and, honestly, gave me some new makeup looks to add to my arsenal. I also got a lot of compliments! The cashier at Whole Foods really liked my "cloud look" and all of my friends loved seeing all these bright colors on my face for a change. The most popular looks amongst my friends were for sure Day 4 ("Geek in the Pink") and Day 7 ("A Rose By Any Other Name"), which were my fave looks as well.

    Some of these looks didn't even take me that long and since it was all ColourPop, kids can not only wear these looks to school and be the coolest student on the quad, but they can afford it as well!
