The next makeup artist I had the pleasure of speaking to was Katrina Klein, a British, Los Angeles–based celeb makeup artist who has worked with talent including Bailee Madison, Lucy Hale, Brianne Howey, and Sophia Bush. Her work can also bee found in publications such as Cosmopolitan and Billboard. “I think [coquette] has become so popular because it’s another nostalgia-based trend, which people are loving at the moment,” Klein begins. “We have had Y2K, grunge, and now coquette too, which is very early 2000s.” Like Ghodstinat, she defines coquette-inspired makeup as feminine, flirtatious, and playful while also highlighting touches of pink, shimmer, bows, and flushed cheeks as its characteristics.
Her favorite recent takes on the coquette makeup trend? Lizzo’s look on the Grammy’s red carpet and on the runway, as well as Simone Rocha’s recent fall 2023 show that featured the addition of silk bows under the eyes of models. Another source of inspiration this makeup artist looks to is none another than Netflix’s hit historical fiction-romance Bridgerton created by showrunner Shonda Rhimes. Scroll on to see which makeup products Klein reaches for when creating a fun and playful coquette-inspired look.
