Inside the Makeup Bag of Euphoria’s Beauty Wiz Donni Davy

We’re finding inspiration in the bold, sparkling maquillage looks of the hit show that took New York Fashion Week by storm



Donni Davy’s story-enhancing makeup for HBO’s Euphoria has everyone talking, both on and off the runway, about her use of light-reflecting glitter, color and design. And when one of the hottest makeup artists in the business lets us in on her favorite products, we take note. Here, Davy reveals what’s in her cosmetics bag.


BECCA Lush Lip Colour Balm, $22.
COLOURPOP Glitter Gel, $8


On the Becca Lush Lip Colour Balm: “I’ve used these on every skin tone. Transparent, but moderately pigmented, they nourish lips with jojoba and chamomile oils.”

On the ColourPop Glitter Gel: “For an extra pop of glitter, dab a little on the center of your lids, just above your upper lash line, or [line] your entire upper lash line.”


TRI Aerogel Hairspray, $10
GLOSSIER Stretch Concealer, $18


On the Tri Aerogel Hairspray: “Lightly mist this strong, scentless spray directly onto a mascara spoolie brush, then comb eyebrows up and out for a fuller effect.”

On the Glossier Stretch Concealer: “I can’t stand when concealer cakes and looks dry. This product comes in a full range of hues, and its dewy, creamy finish looks just like skin.”


VAPOUR BEAUTY Aura Multi Stick, $36
OLIO E OSSO Lip and Cheek Balm, $28


On the Vapour Beauty Aura Multi Stick: “I like to put this directly on cheeks and blend. Oil-based, but not oily feeling, with a dewy finish, they play well with all foundations.”

On the Olio e Osso Lip and Cheek Balm: “These quench dry skin and provide a beautiful glow. The color is very subtle, so choose a darker shade than you think.”


STILA Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow, $24
MAC COSMETICS Shape + Shade Brow Tint, $22


On the Stila Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow: “Great to use on the entire lid, up into the crease and beyond, or just as a highlighter accent along the lash line.”

On the MAC Cosmetics Shape + Shade Brow Tint: “These function like pens to individually draw in eyebrow hairs, allowing for a natural, airy, filled-in brow.”


L’ORÉAL PARIS Voluminous Original Mascara in Burgundy, $9


On the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara in Burgundy: “I love using a little something different than black. Give lashes a good curl before applying a couple coats of this deep burgundy.”
