Last year, everyone wanted to be the murderous clown from Maine named Pennywise. A year before that, we were itching to buzz our heads, carry around a box of Eggo’s frozen waffles, and answer to “Eleven.” Now, we’re channeling a different, way less frightening pop culture icon that only recently hit the zeitgeist: Ally from A Star Is Born.

Sure, you could dress up like her lover and mentor Jackson Maine — all you need is a vocal coach, weekly spray tans, and a beard — but, let’s be real, that just isn’t as fun as being the struggling singer turned global superstar played by Lady Gaga. Throughout the film, the rising musician undergoes several beauty transformations that offer a plethora of costume options. Even better, you can probably recreate her looks with makeup and hair accessories you already own (save for that orange wig).

The Costume: Pre-Fame Ally

Aside from dressing in drag as Édith Piaf, Ally doesn’t put a whole lot of effort into her look. And could you blame her? Most of her day is dedicated to working in a kitchen, taking out the trash, and cleaning up breakfast for her limo-driving father and his buds (who spend a lot more time watching YouTube videos than actually driving).

What You Need: Makeup Removing Wipes

It’s been widely reported that Bradley Cooper wiped off Lady Gaga’s makeup during a screen test in order for her to be open to her character — a move that hasn’t always been well received. For the remainder of production, Gaga wasn’t “allowed” to wear a stitch of makeup until Ally hit a specific point in her on-screen journey. So, if you get out of work late or aren’t the biggest fan of dressing up, use pre-fame Ally as a disguise for your laziness by wiping your face clean of everything.

What You Need: Texturizing Hair Spray

For someone who performed in drag then stayed up all night singing in a parking lot with a rockstar (only after getting into a brief bar fight), Ally’s hair looks relatively clean. Nonetheless, it’s messier than yours would be if you got a full eight hours of sleep and took a shower. To mimic her no-bed bedhead, spritz some texturizing styling spray through your ends and zhuzh.

The Costume: “Shallow” Ally

It’s here: her big break! Maine is seconds away from pulling Ally on stage where she’ll ultimately go viral and became a future pop sensation. Sure, she brushed her hair this time and put on a slick of pink balm, but she still looks like a regular ‘ol concert-goer.
