We've been fans of the beauty looks from Netflix's popular show Riverdale back when it first aired in 2017. Whether it's Betty Cooper's minimalistic makeup looks or Cheryl Blossom's bright red pout, there's always something interesting to note. This time, we're bringing you the exact techniques, tips and products that the makeup artists used to get the show's looks.

So, if you're ever stuck in a beauty rut, you can always channel your inner Riverdale-ite with your hair and/or makeup, thanks to this master list!

Keep scrolling for some noteworthy looks to steal from the Riverdale cast, both on and off screen!

Betty Cooper's Minimalistic Makeup

Throughout the show, we've seen Betty Cooper sticking to a mostly nude makeup palette and to be honest, it is kind of genius. All you need is mascara, some bronzer and a glossy nude lipstick to rock this super simple look. To chisel out her jawline, her makeup artist prefers using the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow and for her barely-there-blush, she likes to add a few dustings of the Charlotte Tilbury Cheek To Chic Powder Blush. 

Wear this look when...whenever you're in a rush. Even if you're an on-the-go kinda gal, this one makes you look like you put in a significant amount of effort with your makeup without actually giving it too much time!

Cheryl Blossom's Red Pout

Crimson red lipstick is literally synonymous with Cheryl Blossom and all true-blue Riverdale fans will agree! Not only does it look chic and sophisticated, but the fact that the rest of her makeup is pared back it allows her power pout to take centre stage. In the show, Cheryl wears the Lime Crime Velvetines Liquid Matte Lipstick in Red Velvet but if you're not too sure of the shade working for you, try one of these.

Where this look when...when you're in the mood to make a statement! We've learned from Cheryl that red lipsticks can be worn all day, every day but it's your attitude that counts.

Veronica Lodge’s Vampy Manicure

Don't know how we missed this but did you know that Veronica Lodge wears the same nail polish in every episode of Riverdale? Her preferred colour is OPI's Malaga Wine, a deep maroon colour that we're painting on our nails as you read this. This shade isn't available in India but we're got your back with this budget-friendly alternative! 

When to wear this...This one is perfect for a cocktail or even a sangeet. Brides, if you're looking for an edgy nail colour to flaunt on your special day, try this pomegranate shade!

Toni Topaz's Gorgeous Pink Hair Colour

Toni Topaz experimented with styles we never saw on other characters, think different hair colours, pigtails and different braids. What we definitely love though, is Toni's fuschia pink and blonde mane. If you're not ready for a full-blown commitment to permanent colour, you can try playing around with some temporary hair dye! 

Wear to wear this...obviously whenever you're looking to experiment with your hair! With the numerous temporary sprays available, you can explore your colour options to the fullest!

Josie McCoy's Colourful Eyeliners

The lead singer of Josie and the Pussycats wears a ton of different coloured eyeliners on the show but our favourites are, hands down are the metallic blue and white ones. 

Where to wear this...Date night! Even though we haven't seen Josie don a red liner, you should go ahead and experiment with it. With Valentine's Day just around the corner, there isn't a better time! But if you're looking for something edgier, you should give blue a go.
