Lili Reinhart’s first Covergirl campaign is officially here and thanks to celebrity makeup artist Patrick Ta, we know exactly how to recreate her look.

The 23-year-old Riverdale star, who became a Covergirl last October, is the new face of the brand’s Clean Fresh Collection. The newly released range is vegan and just the thing to create that glowy no-makeup, makeup look that’s so in at the moment (and easy to replicate on busy mornings).

In a statement, Ta said, “I had so much fun creating this clean and fresh look on Lili for her Covergirl shoot—these products are so versatile and easy to use.” He then went on to explain which exact products he used and how to replicate Reinhart’s fresh glam at home.

Ta kicked things off with the Clean Fresh Skin Milk Nourishing Foundation in 530 Fair/Light ($14) to even out “her skin tone without [creating] too much coverage.” Instead of using a makeup brush, he applied the foundation using his fingers to make it look even more natural.

From there, he moved on to Clean Fresh Cream Blush in Sweet Innocence ($12) and applied the rouge to both the apples of her cheeks and all over the lids.” Ta said, “It’s the perfect amount of color to really round out her look.”

He then applied the Clean Fresh Cooling Glow Stick in Opal Dreams ($12) on the tops of her cheekbones to highlight them and upped her brow dimension with the Micro Fine + Define Pencil in Soft Brown ($6). Ta finished the look with his favorite “tried and true mascara,” Lash Blast Volume in Black  ($5), and gave her lips some moisture and shine with the Clean Fresh Lip Oil in Quench ($11).

The overall look is so Betty Cooper (minus her dark side) and we love it.
