Who else is obsessed with the show Euphoria on HBO? I’ve watched it three times since it came out–I love the characters, the realness of it, the acting, the music, the cinematography, the makeup…it’s so good!
In the Halloween episode, one of the characters, Cassie Howard (played by Sydney Sweeney), dresses up as Alabama Worley (Patricia Arquette) from True Romance (I love that movie too!), and as soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to do a two in one, super meta Halloween costume/cosplay of Cassie as Alabama.

you aren’t even close to being ready for tonight 😈 // 📸: @maudeapatow
Here are the costume details:
Turquoise bra: Poshmark (similar), cow print mini skirt: Pretty Little Thing, altered (similar), blue faux leather cowboy boots: Poshmark (similar), turquoise belt: Amazon, retro turquoise sunglasses: Amazon, heart hoop earrings: Candy Apple Costumes, blonde wig: Arda Wigs Inigo (Champagne)
To me the most stunning thing about Cassie’s take on Alabama is her glittery turquoise eye makeup, which was created by makeup artist Doniella Davy (@donni.davy on Instagram) and applied and recreated during the show by Kirsten Sage Coleman (@kirinrider on Instagram), so I wanted to recreate the look.
I was excited when I found out that the glitter they used on Cassie for this look is Private School by Lemonhead LA, which is a vegan and cruelty free brand, so I got and used the same glitter. Check out the original Cassie looks for Euphoria here and here.
Makeup details (I used all vegan and cruelty free products):
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation (2 Fair. I got a sample from Sephora because I wanted to try the same foundation they used. I liked it but am not sure if I’ll buy it.)

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder (1 Fair)
Flower Beauty Blush Bomb Color Drops (Pinched)
