How To Steal Betty Cooper’s Makeup Look

Team Missy

Previously on Missy we showed you how to steal Cheryl Blossom’s makeup look.

We asked you to vote on Instagram for who’s look you wanted us to cover next. It was a very close vote, but you chose Betty Cooper’s Makeup Look.

We love Betty Cooper’s makeup because it’s simple and natural looking. Unlike Cheryl she isn’t into dramatic looks. With her signature high pony-tail, we think Betty’s look would be perfect for school.

We found the exact products that the makeup artists on Riverdale use to create Betty Cooper’s makeup look.


Betty Cooper, is the epitome of socialite preppy. She can rock a high ponytail like no other, and is an all-American blonde beauty. Though her makeup look is minimalistic, Betty’s skin is always glowing. Her cheeks flushed with the perfect pink hue. And her lipstick choice is always the ideal pinky nude shade.

The lead Makeup artist on Riverdale, Erin Mackenzie, shared Betty’s exact product lineup with POPSUGAR.

“Betty’s natural look begins with Shiseido Glow Enhancing Primer with Guerlain L’Or Radiance Primer underneath for added radiance,” Mackenzie revealed. “My go-to sculpt and highlight palette is Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow, and Glossier Cloud Paint for the most beautiful natural blush out there! Or Charlotte Tilbury’s Cheek To Chic blush, in Ecstasy. I adjust her eye shadow each episode, always staying within a naturally defined zone, playing with tones to match her moods. Her lashes are made perfect with Clinique mascara and our favorite lip [last] season is, without question, Josie Maran Sting Plumping Butter in Free It. All this pulled together gives us that perfect girl-next-door glow!”

Lili Reinhart’s Favourite Makeup

It turns out that Lili’s makeup IRL may be very similar to Betty Cooper’s Makeup!

“I do actually use a lot of the same makeup that I wear as Betty on the show, purely because I’ve fallen in love with so many of the products. For eyes, I love to wear this Clinique mascara because I really like a thin, precise brush. I’m not a fan of huge, chunky lashes, so Clinique’s formula delivers a really beautiful finish, and I also use Clinique concealer. Brows are a big thing for me too. I think everyone on the planet uses the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo, which I’m a big fan of.”

“I’m also really obsessed with the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow Face Sculpt & Highlight —oh my gosh, it’s just so gorgeous. I was wearing it for the show and finally had to get it to use in real life, too,” she laughs. “Then for day-to-day, I’ll use Tom Ford’s Traceless Foundation Stick with a BeautyBlender. On the show, we actually use a mix of the Kat Von D Lock It Foundation and Josie Maran’s Vibrancy Argan Oil Foundation Fluid, which creates a really gorgeous glowy illusion that translates really well on camera.”

Lili’s Top Makeup Trick

“Applying with a dampened Beautyblender is the secret to getting the perfect coverage and maintaining a no-makeup look.”

But even though Betty and Lili are basically one-in-the-same, there’s still a difference to how they approach makeup.

“I guess, when it comes to beauty, I’m very much like Betty in the sense that I don’t wear a lot of makeup, and day-to-day, my look is very natural. For instance, I’m out to breakfast right now, and I don’t have any makeup on. But when I think about it, I do think I’m more willing to do a vampy lip or strong, bold eyeliner for a special occasion. Whereas Betty tends to stay in her comfort zone with her pink lipsticks and softly made-up eyes.”

Lili Has Skin Woes Too!

Lili is just a regular gal, like us. She previously revealed that she struggles a lot with acne. Lili even links it to her social anxiety. But she has a collection of go-to products to help fight spotAccording to Lili, Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay is “amazing for cystic acne”. She also revealed that she buys it “super cheap on Amazon”. Deemed as the “world’s most powerful facial,” this clay mask will unclog your pores and leave you with clearer skin after each use in just 10 minutes. We need this now!

Lili also uses a number of products from Renee Rousseau, which isn’t available in Ireland at the moment. She swears by Triple Berry Smoothing Peel, but you can get a similar effect with The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution.

“But if I want to moisturize, I use GlamGlow’s DreamDuo Treatment. Super heavy moisturizer — amazing,” wrote Reinhart. The overnight moisturizer provides the two-in-one treatment of an anti-aging vitamin-infused serum and hydrating cream made with hyaluronic acid.

If a pimple does pop up, Lili uses Mario Badescu Drying Lotion, which is a super-powerful calamine and salicylic acid treatment to zap away spots overnight.

Lili uses her freshly mixed and customized body lotion made with papaya and pistachio from the St. Ive’s mixing bar in N.Y.C. This is an actual thing and our minds are blown!
