2019 was the year of Euphoria: glitter, gloss, bold colour, heavy pigments, gems and liner. And right in the thick of it all was Barbie Ferreira (who played Kat Hernandez in the breakout HBO series). Her on-screen looks were something right out of a fantasy, but what’s even better is her makeup in real life.
All it takes is a quick scroll through Ferreira’s Instagram account to be met with bright eyes, plush lips, negative liner and about 101 reasons to want to cut bangs. It won’t come as a surprise then, to learn that Becca Cosmetics has just signed her as the face – a nice full circle moment given that the brands iconic highlighter was one of the first beauty products she ever bought. To kickstart an eclectic, electric makeup mood for 2020, we’ve rounded up Ferreira’s brightest, boldest beauty moments in the gallery below.
Bangs, blue shadow and a negative cat eye: the beauty trifecta, as showcased by Barbie.
More blue, but this time an aquatic shade of cerulean. Matched with glossy lips, fresh skin and bushy brows, it’s beautiful.
Three times a charm, but this time an ombre blue wing. Less makeup and more art, the liner fades from an icy pastel to deep turquoise. Follow suit with deft strokes and lots of patience.
Natural makeup, but with a swipe of Barbie pink for impact.
Another peachy nude look – proof that a swipe of apricot shadow can be subtle but oh so sweet.
A coral colour palette pops agains Ferreira’s complexion and shiny black bob. Kept tonal with matching lips and cheeks, it’s a look worth copying.
Ferreira takes a classic smokey eye and makes it special with a smattering of gold glitter in the inner corner. Bare skin keeps it fresh.
