How To Steal Veronica Lodge’s Makeup Look

How To Steal Veronica Lodge's Makeup Look

We love Riverdale here at! The show is pretty outrageous at times, but it keeps us hooked. Another thing that keeps us tuning in is the costumes and makeup sported by the fab female leads. We’ve already told you how to steal Cheryl Blossomand Betty Copper makeup looks. So, now it’s time to take a look at Veronica Lodge’s makeup.

Veronica Lodge’s makeup is a lot darker than Betty’s makeup, which is meant to reflect the darker tendencies in Veronica. According to Teen Vogue, the Riverdale cast hides plot hints in their beauty looks. Veronica’s overall look is very pulled together and sophisticated beyond her years. It also gives us serious Blair Waldorf vibes!

We dug around to find out the EXACT products that the Riverdale makeup artists use to create Veronica Lodge’s makeup.

Veronica Lodge’s Nail Polish

Ever noticed that Veronica aways were the same nail polish? That’s by design according to Camila Mendes who plays Veronica.

“Veronica is like purple, navy, black, more jewel tones,” Camila told E! News. “You know, so she can do like a burgundy, or like a deep, darker red, like a wine colour. Her nails throughout the season are always Malaga Wine. Malaga Wine from OPI and that’s the nail colour I’ll always have for as long as we’re shooting Riverdale”.

You can copy Veronica’s nails by getting OPI in Malaga Wine in Debenhams, Beauty Bay and chemists around the country.

Veronica’s Signature Lipstick

In the first season of Riverdale Veronica uses Glossier’s Generation G lip color in JAM to create her signature berry pout. And great news! Glossier now ships to Ireland! You can use this code to get 10% off your first order.

Riverdale have a sponsorship deal with US cosmetics company, Covergirl. Which is why you see various Covergirl products placed on dressing-tables in the show. It’s rumoured that Camila wears the Covergirl Katy Kat Matte lipstick in Maroon Meow for a darker look, but sadly it’s not available in Ireland.


How To Get Veronica’s Perfect Brows

Head of Riverdale’s makeup department, Erin Mackenzie, chatted to Refinery 29 about how they go about creating Veronica’s perfect brows.  According to Mackenzie, she never wants Veronica’s brows to be as dark as her actual hair, so she keeps the brows one to two shades lighter. She uses eyeshadow (not a brow powder!) to fill in the actress’ brows for a more natural finish. Mackenzie mixes water with the brown shadow to make her own version of a brow pomade. She then uses a brush like wet n wild Angled Liner Brush like to create Veronica’s signature eyebrows.

Last but not least, she finishes off the look with MAC’s Brow Set in Clear to make sure that the eyebrows stay in place all day. Try e.l.f. Clear Brow & Lash Crystal Clear Mascara for a similar and more budget friendly effect.


How To Recreate Veronica Lodge’s Makeup

As for the rest of Veronica’s makeup, your guess is as good as ours. She usually keeps her eye-makeup quite natural, so that her eyebrows and lipstick are a main focus.  Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette has lots of similar shades. She also used liquid eyeliner on her top lash line to really define her eyes. Missy Loves Rimmel Glam Eyes Liquid Eye Liner.
