How to Get the Makeup Look of Your Favorite TV Show Characters With M2U NYC Products

CBC/The CW

When I was in middle school, I used to obsess over my favorite TV show characters.

The hair, makeup, clothes, accessories, attitude… I wanted to be just like them.

I’d try to recreate my entire style based on whatever show I was watching that month.

My parents weren’t happy with my H2O phase — I tossed pretty much everything in my closet that wasn’t red or black to match Rikki Chadwick's style.

But as I grew up, I realized you don’t have to completely renovate your wardrobe to catch the vibe of your favorite characters.

You can get their look by copying their makeup tricks.

Whether it’s a specific lipstick shade, smoky eyeliner, or brightly blushed cheeks, every character has at least one signature makeup look.

And most of the time, it’s super easy to recreate.

Here I’ve listed a couple of beloved TV characters, their unique makeup techniques, and how to get the look with affordable M2U NYC products.

Get excited — your brand new style is literally at your fingertips. 

Elena in The Vampire Diaries

The CW

I’ll admit it.

The first time I watched TVD, I went through tons of Elena Gilbert makeup tutorials.

Actually, the first makeup look I ever mastered was Elena’s daily eyeshadow. She always has soft, warm pigments gently dusted across her eyelids, and each color is perfectly blended for a smooth, breezy look.

Even when she’s crying — which is like, every other episode — she looks like a freaking princess.

I wanted that for myself. And you can have it too, for a fraction of the price I paid.

Get Elena’s golden glow with our Uptown Downtown palette ($12). With these six warm tones, you’ll be able to match her stunning shadow looks.

Using our Eyeshadow Brush Set ($6), apply “Milk” all over your eyelid, “Latte” into your crease, and blend “Espresso” into your outer corner. Finish it all off with a light layer of “Taxi” for some subtle shimmer.

And who knows? Maybe you’ll snag yourself a Salvatore (or two). 

Alexis in Schitt’s Creek 

CBC Television/Pop


Anyone who’s seen this show wants to be A Little Bit Alexis.

I mean, who wouldn’t?

Her closet is full of luxe dresses, designer shoes, and sparkly accessories.

And she commands the room with her bubbly attitude, bouncy curls, and perfectly pink-toned lipsticks.

Alexis is rarely seen on-screen without a matte lipstick on — it’s an essential step in her daily makeup routine. She sticks to neutral tones to complete her outfits and polish her overall look.

Use our Matte Liquid Lip ($6) in "Blood" for your glamorous Alexis moments. Wear “Spring” for your super casual looks, “Soho” for a more vivid pop of pink, and “Plum” for a deeper, date-night vibe.

With just a few quick swipes of the wand, these pretty pink tones add that extra oomph to any outfit.

Don’t be surprised if you start turning heads — it’s crazy what a little color on your lips can do for your style and confidence.

I already love this lipstick journey for you.
 

Serena in Gossip Girl  

The CW

Oh to be an Upper East Sider.

Hopping in limos, always dressed to the nines, dripping in jewels… The glitz and glamour of it all sounds downright delicious.

If you ask me, Serena has always been the true queen of the pack. Her radiant glow and enchanting charm always take the cake when it comes to her battles with Blair.

S. uses a bright silver eyeshadow on the inner corners of her eyes — a classic makeup technique that brightens the eyes and makes them look bigger.

To enhance your makeup looks with some Upper East Side splendor, grab our Eye Crayon ($3) in the shade “Pearl St.” and apply to your inner eye at the end of your routine.

Trust me. The luxe, diamond-like shimmer will have you looking like straight-up royalty.

xoxo. 

Jess in New Girl  

FOX

Some people think she’s a handful.

But the fact is, Jess brings the whole family together. Without her, New Girl wouldn’t be nearly as incredible as it is.

Because of her wild fashion choices — she’s known to rock a lot of polka dots — Jess tends to be in the spotlight.

But it’s her huge, stunning blue eyes that really grab your attention.

Jess wears fake eyelashes on a daily basis to add some spice to her simple, sophisticated makeup routine. And sometimes, for dates and Christmas parties, she’ll wear a gold sparkly eyeshadow for a little extra pizazz.

For Jess’s doe-eyed look, turn to our False Eyelashes ($5). Whether you want natural or full-on Jess volume, we’ve got your back with six different lash styles to make your eyes pop.

Complete your new look by adding some fun, classy shine to your lids with our Liquid Eyeshadow ($6) in the shade “Prince.”

You’ll have your own theme song in no time. 

Aria in Pretty Little Liars 

ABC Family/Freeform

This show is absolutely insane.

It takes a minute to pick up, but once it does, it’s intense as hell.

Despite all of the lying and betrayal and crazy things that happen in this series, my favorite scandal is Aria and Ezra. Hands down.

What can I say? I’m a sucker for romance.

Elegantly blushed cheeks are a staple in Arias makeup routine. She never overdoes it — the tint always looks completely natural.

The soft splash of color beautifully defines her cheekbones and gives her a super healthy glow. Even when she’s exhausted from A’s latest scheme, she always looks perfectly put together.

The best way to get her natural flush is with our Cream Blush ($6). Just dab a little on your cheeks, blend away, and you’ve got a gorgeous rosiness that’ll last all day.

Looks like this (beauty) secret just couldn’t be kept. 

Jane in Jane the Virgin

The CW

Jane is weirdly one of the most relatable TV show characters like, ever.

Well, except for the part where she accidentally gets pregnant.

Throughout the show, her makeup is super simple and natural-looking. Between the baby, the boys, and Petra, putting on a full face every day is not her top priority. And it’s not like she needs it — she looks like a goddess no matter what.

But every time I think about the show, this striking poster pops into my mind.

I mean, she’s killing it in bright pink. And the lipstick is a brilliant, eye-catching touch to her natural makeup look.

A vibrant lipstick is always the way to go to shake up your everyday routine.

Add our Moisturizing Lipstick ($5) in “Bubblegum Pink” to your makeup bag for a statement-making shade like Jane’s.

Before you know it, you’ll be starring in your own telenovela.
