Try These Face Gems for a Euphoria-Inspired Makeup Look

HBO’s Euphoria is a pop culture phenomenon thanks to the show’s incredible acting and nail-biting drama, but its trendsetting makeup looks – particularly face gem makeup – are what lives rent-free in our heads. Face gems have become so popular they’re showing up on runways and red carpets alike. But can this look translate to everyday life? The answer is a big yes! Where do you wear face gems IRL? Anywhere you want! Face crystals can be worn on the eyes, cheeks, forehead, or anywhere else you choose to adorn them. One of the best parts about this trend is you can let your creativity shine (we happen to love Crystal Blitz for a casual or understated look that’s suitable for any type of occasion).


You might be wondering what you stick face gems on with and how do you get them to stay on your face? The process couldn’t be simpler! Eye gems come with a gentle adhesive on the back of the crystals. Press firmly when you apply, and they will stay on your face until you remove them. Here’s a quick face gems application tutorial:


  1. Start with a clean, dry face.
  2. Slowly peel off the gem you want to apply, keeping it flat.
  3. Place gem around your eyes, cheeks, or anywhere you want your face to pop.
  4. Press down firmly to make sure it’s attached.
  5. Peel off slowly to remove.


It’s safe to say, this bejeweled beauty trend isn’t going anywhere. Keep reading for our favorite Euphoria-inspired looks using gems for the face that give everyone main character energy – on and offscreen.
