How Maude Apatow takes care of her skin while filming ‘Euphoria’

“I wasn’t really used to doing anything with my skin; [it] was just pretty good – I was lucky,” admits Euphoria star Maude Apatow. “Then when I started working out and wearing more makeup, [it] got a lot worse, so I had to find a routine; this one I used throughout the shoot Euphoria and everything worked out, except last week when I broke out,” she laughs.

Apatow, who plays Lexi Howard on the HBO series, starts her skincare routine with a toner and lotion from Obagi Medical before applying Jillian Dempsey’s hydrating eye masks. “Definitely, when I work out, my skin gets a lot worse and it took me a long time to find products that didn’t make me break out,” she says, massaging a Chantecaille roller into her face. “The one big thing I’ve learned, though, is to make sure all your makeup comes off at the end of the day.”

The 24-year-old preps her red lipstick with an exfoliating and hydrating duo by Charlotte Tilbury, then perfects her base with sunscreen, two primers and Armani’s Luminous Silk foundation, which she applies with a Jeweled Artis Oval 7 brush. After that, she applies two NARS concealer formulas. Next, she brushes her brows with a Chanel spoolie and clear brow gel, filling in sparse areas along her arch with a brow pencil. Her makeup continues with mauve powder blush, smudged eyeliner, neutral shadow and a double coat of mascara – Laura Mercier’s first (which the makeup team used on set for a faux effect eyelashes) followed by another from It Cosmetics. “Nobody really expected him to be as big as he is,” she remarks of Euphoria, crediting lead makeup artist Doniella Davy with creating the eye-catching looks. “It’s so crazy to see people doing Euphoria makeup and I’m so jealous! I feel like I’m too shy to wear this bold look.

That said, her character’s evolution has been charted in part through her beauty looks. In the second season, Apatow explains, “My character starts out shy and comes into its own as the season progresses, and you see that with the makeup too. Her makeup seems to get a little bolder. Off set, Apatow applies NARS Liquid Blush in Orgasm to her cheeks before dusting with a bronzer from Guerlain.
