Jenna Ortega's portrayal of Wednesday Addams has made everyone full of woe — in the best way, ofc. The 🎶 "mysterious and spooky" 🎶 psychic gal and titular character of Netflix's dark comedy, Wednesday, has ushered in the beauty trend of soft goth glam, with over 82.1 million TikTok fans searching up the look. Lucky for us, hair and makeup designer Tara McDonald has shared the deets on the exact beauty products Jenna wears in the show — including her lip color, face makeup, and eyeshadow.
In an interview conducted by beauty expert and proclaimed trend whisperer Cat Quinn shared via Instagram, McDonald revealed that Wednesday is wearing the MAC Lip Pencil in Nightmoth mixed with clear balm. Quinn says that Wednesday’s softly blurred, brown-plum lip can be achieved by mixing the liner and some balm in a makeup pot or on your hand. McDonald also revealed that instead of applying the color with a brush, they would dab the Frankesteined product directly onto Ortega’s lips.

According to Wednesday's world, a sallow complexion with carved cheekbones is definitely in. To nail the aesthetic that Quinn describes as “half-dead, but still fresh and modern,” McDonald applied a sheer, freckle-showing skin tint to Jenna's face to stay true to the character's pale and muted coloring. To carve out cheekbones sharper than Wednesday's fencing sword, McDonald used MAC Cosmetics’ Sculpting Powder in shades Sculpt and Shadowy.

Wednesday's piercing eye makeup accentuates her large, Tim Burton-esque eyes as she holds back from blinking the entire series. Quinn spills that all it takes to achieve Wednesday's soft goth smokey eye are three MAC Eyeshadows — Script, Carbon, and Glitch in the Matrix. McDonald reportedly started off the eyeshadow look by blending the warm brown shade, Script, onto Jenna's lid, crease, and undereye. Next, she applied the true black shade, Carbon, underneath her eye. The look was finished with Glitch in the Matrix, which was swiped onto Jenna's upper lash line like a smokey eyeliner.
