In Bustle’s Beauty Detail, we dive into the beauty bags of our favorite talents for intel on the rituals that keep them glowing and the MVPs (most valuable products) they can’t live without. Here, Barbie Ferreira tells Bustle about her first makeup memory and how her role on “Euphoria” changed her relationship with beauty.

As fearless Kat Hernandez on Euphoria, actor Barbie Ferreira isn’t afraid to rock a bold makeup look — and turns out in real life, the star’s approach to beauty isn’t so different from that of the character she plays on TV. “I’ve worn makeup since I was 10,” she tells me over the phone. “My school didn’t like it, but I would wear a blue smoky eye in eighth grade with fake lashes, and that was kinda my thing.”

Ferreira, who’s been modeling since she was a teenager, hasn’t always felt inspired to experiment with beauty. “I was modeling and people were always putting makeup on my face, so I didn’t want to wear it on my days off,” she says. Then came her Euphoria role, which the actor credits as the motivating force behind her renewed interest in playing with color. “It’s definitely opened up my creativity with makeup again — I’m using it as a tool of expression for how I’m feeling any given day,” she adds. “It’s almost as important as my outfit.”

Glancing at her Instagram feed, one’s greeted with colorful, Pinterest board-worthy eye candy: There’s Ferreira decked out in the perfect highlighter, modeling a vivid green eyeshadow, and trying different eyeliner looks, for just a few examples. Serendipitously, her enthusiasm for makeup led to a gig as global spokesperson and collaborator with Becca Cosmetics, a brand known for its cult-fave highlighters, bronzers, and palettes, among other makeup essentials.

Just in time for the holidays is the recently launched Becca x Barbie Ferreira Prismatica Collection, which includes pearlescent lip glosses and an ultra-shimmery, multifunctional face palette, all of which the star helped create. Ferreira says she wanted to make products that she would want to wear all the time. “My favorite eyeshadows are always purple,” she says. “It was very important to me that I have a purple-y, kind of eyeshadow-highlight moment because I love to do a holographic look. Then I love a good neutral color and a bronze-y color as well, so [the Prismatica Collection] encapsulates all of it.”

Even during quarantine, Ferreira loves wearing a done-up makeup look because… why not? “It’s a costume — I love feeling like I’m a different person every day, and makeup has definitely been a tool for that,” she says, adding that there are days when she decides to throw on a wig for even more glamour. Ahead, Ferreira shares six beauty MVPs that keep her feeling glowy and fresh.
