1920's Makeup and Hair Tutorial ~ Flapper Halloween Costume

"The parties were bigger, the pace was faster, the shows were broader, the buildings were higher, the morals were looser, and the liquor was cheaper." -F. Scott Fitzgerald
Hi Everyone! Today’s blog post is a 1920’s, The Great Gatsby, inspired makeup and hair tutorial! Probably one of my favorite looks I have made so far! I love this time period, I find it so inspirational, and if I had the ability to travel back in time, the roaring 20’s would be my first stop! So without further ado, let’s get this party started and let our inner flapper girl come out.

The key elements of a 1920’s makeup look include porcelain skin, a deep beautiful Smokey eye, a rosy flush and dramatic bold lips! To get the unmistakable 20’s vibe you want to go all out, the more dramatic, the better. This time period was about experimentation, women were recreating society’s standards, and they were all about enhancing their beauty through the use of makeup! Unlike today makeup brands were far and few between, and women would use unconventional products to achieve their desired look. Car enamel was adapted and used as nail polish, soot and coal mixed with Vaseline as eyeliner; it’s amazing how vastly the world of makeup has developed throughout time!
