If you noticed Mabel Mora has a little extra color in her cheeks this season of Only Murders in the Building, that’s not only thanks to her new hit podcast (and, uh, turbulent romance). As Hulu and Rare Beauty have now revealed, Mabel’s been sporting some new makeup, courtesy of her actress’s hot beauty brand.
On July 25, Rare Beauty Global Stylist Cynthia Di Meo broke down exactly which products have adorned Selena Gomez’s face as the pop icon stepped into Mabel’s high-heeled croc boots in season 2. The routine is composed of a custom collection specifically packaged for Only Murders in the Building, which is now available to shop at a discounted rate at the Rare Beauty site.
“One of the things that I really like about Mabel Mora’s makeup…is that it’s a very real makeup,” Di Meo told viewers during an Instagram Live on July 25. “It looks like, you know, it’s something that she created on her own; it’s very attainable.” She then applied Mora’s signature look step by step, as seen on the Only Murders in the Building season 2 poster. The routine consists of the Always An Optimist Pore Diffusing Primer, Liquid Touch Weightless Foundation, Liquid Touch Brightening Concealer, Stay Vulnerable Liquid Eyeshadow in the shade Nearly Neutral, Perfect Strokes Liquid Eyeliner, Perfect Strokes Universal Volumizing Mascara, Brow Harmony Pencil and Gel, Stay Vulnerable Melting Blush in Nearly Neutral, Lip Soufflé Matte Lip Cream in Brave, and the Blot & Glow Touch Up Kit.
Six of the above products are on sale as part of the Mabel Mora’s Must-Haves collection: Customers can save 20% when they buy three or more together, using the code MABEL20, through August 30.
During the video, Di Meo sprinkled in tips on how to apply the products, many of them straight from Gomez’s lips. “Selena loves a classic cat-eye,” she said. “But she says she cannot apply it on herself, so she wanted to create something that made it easier for application,” thus begetting the Perfect Strokes Liquid Eyeliner, which Mabel wears mostly on the outer corners of her eye. The stylist then finished the look off with lip cream and blush, in “Selena’s favorite shade,” Nearly Neutral.
In a separate interview with ELLE.com, Dana Covarrubias, the costume designer for Only Murders in the Building, revealed that Mabel’s colorful look this season is part of a larger mission. Her clothing, her makeup, her walk—all of it is designed to reflect a young woman slowly coming into her confidence after a traumatic experience. “We’re keeping some of the same color palettes and some of the same silhouettes, but making them a little more mature, a little more artsy, a little more bold,” she said. “We wanted to see who Mabel is outside of The Arconia.”
Only Murders In The Building makeup artist Jackie Risotto backed up this perspective in a press statement sent by Rare Beauty: “Mabel’s makeup for season two has evolved in tandem with her character,” she said. “She is strong, confident and beautiful, and I chose to portray this by using a more expansive color palette in her shadows, blushes and lip colors. I made stronger choices to reflect her inner strength and artist while remaining true to the Mabel we all know and love from season one.” Given Mabel clearly has Gomez’s taste in makeup, we know where to find beauty look inspiration for our next watch party.
