Anne Hathaway is having a fashion renaissance: We decode her 5 most iconic looks

  Anne Hathaway is having a fashion renaissance: We decode her 5 most iconic looks Once dubbed the most 'annoying' woman in Hollywood, fashion fans can't get enough of Anne Hathaway, from twinning with her Devil Wears Prada Character to rocking Barbiecore Valentino, here's why she has made the ultimate comeback - read moreAfter enjoying a long stint of popularity which emanated from her playing the titular character Mia Thermopolis in Princess Diaries (hands up if you also thought Genovia was a real country for a while) ahe would then go on to play one of the most likeable characters of all time, Andy Sachs in The Devil Wears Prada (as we all know unsupportive boyfriend Nate was the real villain of that movie.

Tim Burton’s  “Wednesday” on Netflix — a reimagination of the 1964 and 1991 Addams Family — has quickly become many people’s new favourite show, thanks to Jenna Ortega’s already iconic performance of Wednesday Addams.

Since its release, beauty enthusiasts have been eager to tap into their inner goth to share their take on Wednesday’s macabre look on TikTok and Instagram, particularly taking interest in her perfectly stained lip colour. But now, we don’t have to guess what products were used to create that spooky and perfectly stained lip because executive director of trends at MAC Cat Quinn has shared the exact products “Wednesday’s” hair and make-up designer Tara McDonald used on set.

And unsurprisingly (and luckily for all of us at home), it’s not complicated. Wednesday isn’t exactly the type of character to painstakingly apply a liquid lip. Nope, instead the look uses two products quickly blended together.

Firstly, McDonald takes MAC Lip Pencil in Nightmoth (£18) and puts a small amount in a pot (or as Quinn suggests, warms it up on the back of your hand at home) to create a smoother texture, followed by a clear balm (not gloss). These are then mixed together to create more of a tinted balm or stain and dabbed onto Ortega’s lips. The result is a blackened plum hue giving off the impression that Wednesday has this natural soft gothic look about her with minimal effort.

As for her dead-behind-the-eyes eye look, Quinn explains in another video that McDonald first goes in with MAC Eyeshadow in Carbon (£17) underneath Ortega’s eyes to give that tired look a lot of us know all too well. Next, she takes MAC Brown Script (£17) on both her lid and underneath her eyes followed by MAC Eyeshadow in Carbon (£17) and MAC Eyeshadow in Glitch In The Matrix (£17) smudged on top lash line.

To complete her makeup, McDonald used an extremely sheer skin tint to let her natural freckles peek through her light skin tone, followed by MAC Sculpting Powder in Sculpt (£18.50) and MAC Sculpting Powder in Shadowy (£18.50) to sculpt her cheeks without looking overly bronzed.

True to her character’s nature, Ortega pairs the look with two braids (though this time with a modern fringe) and, of course, jet-black nails.
