Riverdale is The CW’s latest breakout hit series, and while members of the IRL Archie gang are becoming full-fledged celebs in their own right, they’re also still a mystery to us. Case in point: Betty Cooper a.k.a. Lili Reinhart is a low-key makeup artist with an affinity for special effects, gore, and cosplay makeup. Who knew?
“I love to do special effects makeup just for fun, for Halloween. I definitely love October because it gives me a good excuse to do face beat and use my special effects makeup,” Reinhart told HelloGiggles recently.
Reinhart says she stumbled into the hobby a few years ago when she watched some makeup tutorials online.
“I took it upon myself to buy a bunch of random special effects makeup and experiment and that’s how I got into it. Then, special effects slowly turned into more face paint and cosplay makeup. I definitely have a little makeup artist in me,” says the Riverdale star.
“I did Lady Gaga’s character from American Horror Story: Hotel, and that was really cool for me,” says Reinhart. “I love the more glamorous kind of ones. I guess you could say maybe Harley Quinn isn’t super glamorous, but I did do a Harley Quinn look earlier this year in kind of a cosplay situation.”
She’s even good at gore glam! We are reeling over this hidden talent, tbh. [Ed. note: The following photos are not for the faint of heart!]
Reinhart’s pre-fame MUA career is the best discovery on the internet.
