We were OBSESSED with the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Makeup when watching the show. Sure, the storylines were gripping and Nick is a beaut to look at, but it was the hair and makeup looks that really stole the show.
We’ve already shared how you can steal Sabrina’s style, but we just had to know more about the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina makeup. And good news; we’ve found some of the exact makeup worn in the show! Step this way…
Sabrina‘s head makeup artist Candice Stafford-Bridge chatted to Allure and told them that she keeps Sabrina makeup pretty simple. “She can raise the dead, but I wanted to be true to a 16-year-old high school girl and make her makeup believable,” says Stafford-Bridge.
The exact red lipstick that Sabrina wears? Christian Louboutin Velvet Matte Lip Colour in Very Prive. “It’s the world’s most expensive lipstick,” laughs Stafford-Bridge. “It just happens to look amazing on her.” So, we’ll start saving now then!
Stafford-Bridge avoids Instagram makeup or any on-trend looks to keep that same vintage vive that Riverdale has going on. That means skipping any noticeable contour or highlight.
The Dark Side of Sabrina
Sabrina’s makeup changes drastically as the series goes on and according to Stafford-Bridge that’s by design.
“I think the thing with making Kiernan less made up is that before the Dark Baptism, she’s pure and she hasn’t chosen the so-called Dark Side,” she continues. For the look, Stafford-Bridge prepped Shipka’s skin with Dermalogica Ultra Calming Mist, then mixed two Kjaer Weis cream foundations and Jane Iredale Dream Tint for a base to match her skin tone. Her rosy cheeks, meanwhile, come from either MAC’s Cream Blush in Rich Coral or MAC’s Powder Blush in Dusty Rose.
Then there’s the lip, a rosy peach balm by Dior. “In the early episodes her lips are the Dior Lip Glow in 004,” says Stafford-Bridge. “It gives her a really natural glow.”
When Sabrina finally swipes on some dark lipstick, though, pay attention: It’s a sign that she’s considering going all in with the coven. Take a scene in the second episode, for example, in which Sabrina calls on the Weird Sisters—a trio of dark witches decked out in Bite lipstick, Anastasia Beverly Hills Eye Palettes, and stacks of false eyelashes—to assist her in pranking a group of boys who bullied her mortal friend at school.
She arrives to hex the bullies in classically witchy makeup, courtesy of Tom Ford Bruised Plum purple lipstick and a black powder along her lash line. It’s dramatic, it’s dark, and it matches the Weird Sisters perfectly.
The Weird Sisters
The Weird Sisters definitely steal the show from Sabrina when it comes to the makeup in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. “We put all the makeup that you can possibly put on a face on them, and we go into the non-traditional colours, so greys and blues and blacks,” says Stafford-Bridge.
Dorcas’ look is a little bit more attainable. She wears cult favourite Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipstick in Glastonberry with M.A.C. Lip Pencil in Currant. Glastonberry is a berry-purple shade that shockingly looks amazing on just about everyone.
Agatha’s signature shade is Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Whiskey and the brand’s Lip Liner in #48 which are a mahogany and a blackened violet and unfortunately not available in Ireland at the mo’.
To finish-off The Weird Sisters makeup Stafford-Bridge “used all of the lashes in the lash drawer” (a mix of Ardell Individual Lashes and Kiss i•Envy Trio) and amplified with multiple layers of Dior Diorshow Mascara.
