At the beginning of the series, you might notice that Mabel is very minimalist with her hair and makeup. "We didn't want to do anything too over the top because we were kind of playing with her character and wanted to show that character development as the series progressed," said Risotto. "This wasn't a girl that was waking up every day, getting ready, and putting herself really together to look perfect."
However, as the series progresses, you'll notice that Mabel starts experimenting more with her appearance. "Mabel begins to kind of find herself and reclaim her purpose and her confidence," she said. "We tried to tell that story through her makeup. She's getting up in the morning, she's putting on her eyeliner, she's going to work, she's doing what she has to do."
As Mabel became more confident, Risotto "bumped up her look" with eyeshadow, eyeliner, vibrant lip colours, and heavier blush — specifically the Stay Vulnerable Melting Cream Blush ($21) from Gomez's makeup line. "It's so well pigmented and you can really build, so you could give a light little flush on the cheeks or you could really pop it up and give it a more vibrant look."
