Buckle up friends, Euphoria season 2 is set to premiere January 9, and we’re clearly in for a bumpy joy ride with Rue at the helm once more. The teen drama stole our hearts and our Sunday nights back in 2019 and now after battling COVID-19 filming complications, we are finally being reunited with our favorite messy teenagers.
And while the plotline definitely kept us entertained, what truly had a hold on Euphoria watchers were the many intricate beauty and fashion moments all throughout the show. Rhinestones and colorful winged-eyeliner became a staple after Euphoria’s premiere and it seemed like everyone was on the hunt for Maddy’s infamous two-piece purple cutout set. The fashions in Euphoria managed to steal the show and we all became entranced with the moments where we’d catch glimpses of these beauty looks up close — between all the tears and “party favors” of course.
Rhinestones became a staple addition to our daily makeup routines after 2019. Sadly though, Euphoria makeup designer Doniella Davy shared that in season 2 we’d see a lot less of the dynamic beauty looks we got in season one.
“It’s weird because [the new season’s vibe] is not really simplified because some moments are more experimental, but some of them are more minimal,” she tells Allure.
Davy even noted that their signature use of rhinestones would be “retired for now.” And while we won’t see the same level of sparkle in season 2, I’m sure we’ll still get some fashion and beauty looks everyone will want to recreate.
In honor of Euphoria season 2 premiering, we’ve rounded up our favorite looks from season 1 that truly stuck with us.
Maddy’s Carnival Look
This outfit here notably had every teenager searching for a pair on every fashion site. Maddy’s iconic delivery of “I’m not supposed to be here right now because I’m dressed like a hooker and none of you like me,” will go down in history. The purple two-piece with hip cutouts fit perfectly into Gen Z’s refurbished Y2K obsession and was worn by many who were lucky enough to find it online.
Cassie’s Ice Rink Look
This makeup look in itself was so very intricate for it to only grace our screens during a flashback scene with Sydney Sweeney’s character Cassie. The rhinestone wing with blue hues throughout made us all want to sit for three hours to try to recreate it.
Kat’s Mall Look
Kat’s “good girl gone bad” era truly was a moment during season one. More specifically her style transformation really was a game changer, especially for curvy women. Cue her iconic line: “There’s nothing more powerful than a fat girl who doesn’t give a f*ck.” This edgy, dominatrix style that Barbie Ferreira’s character undertook was fabulous and served as some much needed style inspo for plus-size watchers.
Maddy’s School Look
In true Euphoria fashion, the makeup artists gave us the most memorable beauty looks that if you blinked or stepped away for too long, you’d miss a few of them. Maddy surely held the team down with her daily makeup flexes while going to school. This pink and purple eye moment falls directly into that “don’t look away or you’ll miss it” category.
Jules’ School Outfit
Jules constantly gave schoolgirl core, playing with colors constantly. She also had a huge monochromatic style, focusing a lot of plea
ted skirts and frilly crop tops. This blue moment was a fan-favorite.
Maddy’s Cheerleader Look
This round up would not be complete without the many Maddy moments. One in particular is this insane blue rhinestone wing look. The amount of YouTube and TikTok tutorials of beauty gurus recreating this look in itself shows how popular this makeup moment was.
Jules’ Insane Eyelash Look
Like Maddy, Jules had very unique and innovative makeup looks that coincided perfectly with her personality. This spikey false face eyelash look felt so fun and true to Jules’ personal style.
Rue and Jules’ Pajamas
This scene between Rue and Jules was so incredibly sentimental, but it also made me realize I need to step my pajama game up. Jules’ ‘atomic’ pink crop top and Rue’s burgundy satin pajama set were definitely in my top searches right after episode 1 premiered.
Maddy’s Prom Look
Alexa Demie’s character never comes to play and this prom look is just another example of that. Maddy’s affinity for two-pieces worked perfectly with this sheer set.
Jules’ School Look
Jules’ beauty moments, like her, were vibrant and from far away, not truly extremely visible, but once up close, you saw all the details. This is one of the many favorites in which she combined swift, neon lines to create facial art.
Jules’ Train Station Look
This scene is one of the final moments in the season finale. It left many fans screaming into the void wondering if Rue and Jules would be okay. Once again though, we get a glimpse at Jules’ love for vibrant and neon beauty looks that draw attention and detail straight to the emotions in her eyes.
