Hunter Schafer Is Experimenting With Makeup and Listening to Screamo in Quarantine

The actress opens up about working with Shiseido, feeling beautiful, and her current goth phase.

Euphoria’s lead makeup artist] on building Jules. Jules is more artistic, like kind of abstract looks. Recently, I played with this really thin eyeliner, the microliner ink from Shiseido, and I drew this symbol from my community that I really love on one side of my eye and like a sword on the other eye. And both of those are things I like to draw. They end up in my sketchbook a lot of the time. It was really cool to be able to approach my face with the sense of like, ‘Oh, it's just using a regular ink pen.’ It almost felt like I had face tattoos with the subtracted commitment of actually having someone tattoo my face.

Who are your favorite beauty influences, past or present?I always say Kelsey Lu because I found out about her in high school and I just thought she was the coolest. She has a lot of fun as far as colors go. It's the same thing with Tilda Swinton. I mean, the beauty, fashion, everything—I'm like, I want to be her. There's this rapper, BbyMutha, she's awesome and I love what she does with makeup as well.

Are you and Doniella raising the bar for season 2? Have you talked about what’s next at all? headtopics.com

I think there's maybe a sense of pressure to do that. I think the interesting thing with sequences or a season jumping into another season is the idea of having to top yourself or level up. We've been doing our best to avoid that pressure because whatever we did in the first season worked, in a lot of ways. We're just trying to remember to stay true to the characters and stay true to the wavelength of the show rather than trying to create the next Tiktok trend or something.

Do you ever look at your co-stars' makeup [Alexa Demie as Madi, Barbie Ferreira as Kat, Zendaya as Rue, and Sydney Sweeney as Cassie] and personally identify with their beauty looks more than Jules? Or are you Jule through and through?Jules is definitely the most like me and I really put a lot of myself into the collaboration I did with Doni. When we first started filming season 1, I was still kind of in my colors and like,

Oh my gosh, I have access to all these fun clothes[but] I think I've been a little goth lately. I've been wearing a lot of black and I've gotten into screamo recently. That’s like, happening. It’s had an effect on me.In that regard, there's a part of me that's maybe a little bit jealous of Kat's makeup and that she inhabits a bit more of a goth beauty world, which I love. To be honest, what I want to channel and be changes every single day.

Yeah. We've talked about it a lot. We've always been attentive to how the makeup services a scene or reflects a scene or amplifies a certain aspect of a scene and where the character is at and what the character is feeling. Where season 1 left off is repositioning Jules for season 2 in a new place now that a lot of big things have just happened. I think there will be a bit of an evolution and some new vibes and aesthetics coming from Jules.

When do you personally feel you're most beautiful?I think I feel the most beautiful when I feel like myself. That sounds corny, but it's true. When I feel like one and in unison between how I'm feeling on the inside—which is ever-changing and always evolving—and how I look on the outside is a really special feeling. It's a feeling I'm particularly attuned to and that if that's not matching up, I know something's off.

That feels really important to me and there's almost a sense of euphoria when those things do harmonize. Also, when it's someone who's been formerly pretty insecure, it's taken a lot of work for me to be comfortable with my face and how I look. I've grown to really like how I look now. So letting that shine through always feels really important and is a part of how I feel beautiful, because my face is what makes me unique and that's beautiful to me.
