betty and veronica

 

I think Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge are two of the most iconic female comic book characters to date. I know many people seem to identify with one or the other; the kind, classic, girl next door Betty or the sassy, vampy, bursting with moxie Veronica. I’ve always adored how different the girls were, polar opposites really, yet both are still strong, driven, and intelligent.

I’ve always wanted to do make up looks inspired by these characters and their signature looks, and tonight I finally did. I had a lot of fun exploring the different personalities and aesthetics of these characters. If you want to see more of my character makeup looks, click here!

Take a look at each makeup look and the products I used to make them happen!

 

Betty Cooper

I wanted to emphasize the big, innocent eyes and the fresh freckled skin. In the comics, Betty doesn’t have any freckles,  I just love the faux freckled look and thought it would give me a more naive look. Her face is more cherubic compared to Veronica’s so I laid off the contour and piled on the blush.

Next up is Veronica Lodge. I’ve always felt more like a Veronica than a Betty, if we’re being honest here. I think this is why it took me a categorically shorter amount of time to do the Veronica face.

What’s important about Veronica makeup is not aging her too much, which tends to happen when going for this kind of classic look. I focused on the eyebrows and the chiseled cheeks. Less so on the eye makeup, opting to only contour the crease and wing the eyeliner. You can’t forget the red lips, of course.

Here’s what created the Veronica look:
