For Jessie Andrews, Beauty Is About Feeling Good in Your Own Skin

The multi-hyphenate, who recently made her ‘Euphoria’ debut, talks about her acting career, go-to beauty products and more.

Jessie Andrews is the multi-hyphenate of our generation. The 29-year-old started in the adult industry at 18 and has since built brands in jewelry (Bagatiba), swimwear (Basic Swim) and ready-to-wear (Jeu Illimite). The entrepreneur is now back on set, making an impactful appearance in the fifth episode of Euphoria Season 2 alongside Zendaya. With this powerful debut, the model plans on expanding her acting career, adding another line to her impressive resumé.

In the latest installment of HYPEBAE’s Beauty Essentials series, we talk to Andrews about some of her makeup and skincare must-haves. The actor keeps her beauty routine minimal, wearing nothing but moisturizer and her favorite lip color on most days. “Beauty is confidence. Being able to feel good in your own skin is the ultimate beauty,” she tells us.

Continue reading our conversation with Andrews below, and stay tuned for our upcoming “In The Hype” feature, where we chat more about her acting career.

Skincare

Circumference Active Restorative Moisturizing Cream: I enjoy using this thick and moisturizing cream for my nighttime routine.

OSEA Hyaluronic Sea Serum: A serum for both the day and night that contains all-natural ingredients.

OSEA Seabiotic Water Cream: A lightweight, daytime moisturizer that almost feels like a nourishing serum.

Sunday Riley Good Genes Lactic Acid Treatment: I use this every other night for resurfacing my skin.

Makeup

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil: This is my all-time favorite. My go-to shades are “Dolce Vita” and “Take Me Home.”

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish: A light and efficient finishing powder.

Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil: I love this pencil for its precision. It also matches the color of my brows perfectly.

Diorshow Iconic Overcurl: A mascara that’s great for building onto the lashes for a full, rich makeup look.

Dior Backstage Eye Palette: I use the shades in the top row of the “002 Cool Neutrals” palette when I’m going out.

How would you describe your style when it comes to beauty? What is your definition of beauty?

My everyday beauty routine is pretty simple: moisturizer and a lip color. That’s me 90% of the time. Beauty is confidence. Being able to feel good in your own skin is the ultimate beauty.

Where do you find inspiration for your style, for both fashion and beauty? Is there a beauty regimen or beauty hack you swear by?

I love following Instagram and Pinterest accounts that inspire me. Usually, if I have the same taste in furniture or architecture [as someone's], I’ll have the same taste in fashion [as theirs]. My beauty inspiration is a natural, ’90s off-duty model look. One of my favorite beauty hacks is using highlighter under my eyebrow to give it a lifted look.

How did you end up getting cast for the second season of Euphoria?

I pretty much ended up getting cast for Euphoria through social media. I had been friends with writer and director Sam [Levinson] on Instagram and we were just talking for a couple of years about random stuff. Then, they were casting for the second season and I told him, “Let me know if there are parts that would fit for me.” He said they had something and would send me to casting. I went in, did the self-tape, which was amazing, but then everything shut down for two years because of COVID-19. I got a message out of the blue from Sam one day, and he said, “Hey, do you wanna shoot something tomorrow?” So that’s how it happened.

What was your initial reaction when you found out about the gig?

I was pretty excited in the beginning. I feel like it’s a TV show that relates to pop culture and my generation, so to be a part of something that is so part of that time, and is going to be rewatched 10 years from now, was such a cool opportunity.

Could you share more details on your role in the show?

Essentially, Rue (played by Zendaya) is coming off of drugs and she is being brought to rehab by her mom. She’s running away and doesn’t know where to go, and she’s getting into trouble. At night, my partner and I are leaving the house and she sneaks into our house. She takes some jewelry from me but we end up coming home early. I’m getting undressed, and I realize my jewelry is missing. I tell my partner to call the police, and he runs to the safe, where he finds Rue. It’s a really fun scene.

What was the shooting process like for you and what was the biggest challenge?

It was a nighttime shoot, and Sam had these huge balloons in the air that were so beautiful, like the moonlight. It was a really fun time to be on set with so many people that were so excited about the process. The cast is so connected in so many different ways, and it was so great to be on set with that much synergy.

Sam asked me and Alan to come on set and gave us the script. Alan is a screenwriter and I’m not a trained actor really, so we’re both not professional actors. Sam told us we were going to ad-lib and we were both like, “What? You picked the non-actors to ad-lib.” [Laughs.] That was a really interesting thing for me to do because I had never done it before. Sam is a great director, so he would catch some of the things we’d say and give us the support and guidance we needed.

What was the most memorable moment being on set?

It would have to be the catering. [Laughs.] That probably sounds terrible, but the catering was so good. There was just so much food — fresh juice, fruit and this long strip of Mexican, Italian, breakfast sandwiches, this, that — you could literally get anything. I was so amazed because I love food. I was taking cookies and juices with me, and that was really memorable for me.

How has your experience in the adult industry informed your acting style in Euphoria?

I think having so much experience in adult films really helped me just be more comfortable in front of the camera. I’m pretty outgoing but can be quite shy in a way. From doing porn from 18 to 24, I was on camera almost every single day. That really prepped me to be okay with not being perfect every single time. I always have to remind myself of that because I don’t shoot anymore. Every shoot is an opportunity to show yourself to a massive amount of people. I feel like they also should know that not every time you’re in front of the camera it’s going to be perfect.

Do you have plans on further developing your acting career?

It’s a career path that’s challenging to me. From all of the things between adult film, DJing, starting brands, the art gallery, creative direction and more, it’s so much fun but I feel like, at a point, you kind of tap out on how challenging it can be, in a way. I think with acting, you’re really looking inward to challenge yourself in so many different ways that it’s just interesting. It’s invigorating and fascinating to see people that are acting to be able to become someone else at that moment. I really want to challenge myself in the next couple of years and see what I can do in that field.

Which film genre interests you the most and who is one director you’d like to collaborate with in the future?

It’s hard because I don’t watch a ton of television or movies, but a lot of movies that I’m drawn to are dramas and action. I’d really love to work with Gaspar Noé. I had a call with him years ago when I was in porn. We never ended up shooting anything, but he’d be a great person for me to collaborate with on something really different. I love films like Blue Is the Warmest Color, that really make you feel, and they are so realistic. I’d love to explore more in that genre.
