Jenna Ortega is the “IT” girl of the moment. The star of Netflix’s “Wednesday” has worked in TV and film since she was a kid and now the 20-year-old is carving out a name for herself when it comes to setting beauty trends. And her influence is only growing. When “Wednesday” premiered, fans flocked to buy her signature lip liner from the show, Mac’s Nightmoth. It sold out soon after.

One thing we love about Ortega is that she’s fearless and always down to try a new beauty look. From vibrant lips to goth-inspired glam, read below to see why Ortega has become one to watch for all things beauty.


Crimson Crush

For the premiere of her new movie, “Scream VI,” Ortega styled her fresh wolf cut with a bold cherry lip and noteworthy peach blush. Her cheeks played into her eyeshadow seamlessly, giving a nod to ’80s makeup.

Pretty in Peach

Nominated for “Wednesday,” Ortega hit up the SAG Awards in bold ’60s style lashes and a burst of pretty peach blush, topped off with a gloss in the same peachy-brown hue.


Stay Neutral

Soft pink was the vibe for Ortega at the Golden Globes where she rocked a monochromatic blush and lipstick combo in the playful Spring color.

Smoke Show

Ortega’s makeup artist Vincent Oquendo smudged midnight blue and black liner together for a dramatic cat eye that we really can’t get enough of.


Going Goth

For her “Wednesday” premiere, Ortega went full goth with long dark hair, black smoky eye, and a nude lip.

Turn Up the Volume

Here, Ortega rocked a fresh face and brick-red glossy statement lip, paired with voluminous auburn tresses, as a fun change to her glam.

Sleek Moves

Ortega kept it chic and simple in a black eyeliner and nude lip combo, which complemented her straight and sleek brown hair.
