When wearing red lips, you normally want to keep eye makeup subdued. One exception to this rule is the flapper look: deep red lipstick and a mysterious smoky eye make a striking combination and are the very definition of glamour!
- Eyes: black, gray and ivory eyeshadows, black eyeliner, mascara
- Lips: deep red lipstick, red gloss
- Face: Foundation Primer, concealer, foundation, blush
Curl lashes. Apply 3 layers of black mascara to top & bottom, let dry. Curl again. Prep the lids with Foundation Primer and dab black eyeshadow up to the crease and extending outwards. Repeat this step on lower lid. With a medium-sized brush, sweep gray eyeshadow slightly over the crease, blending over the black. Repeat the same over the lower lid. Sweep ivory eyeshadow onto the brow bone and underneath the brow arch. Blend well into the gray. Apply black eyeliner on the waterline.
Did you know?
Liquid eyeliner is best applied to the outer edge of waterline, close to the lashes and away from the eyeball. This will prevent it from getting into your eye (ouch!).
Moisturize skin, apply Foundation Primer and then foundation. Concealer for dark spots and under the eyes. Keep blush natural – peaches & beiges. Finish off with Pixie Dust. Add a beauty mark anywhere on the face with a liquid liner or pencil liner. Traditionally, flapper look calls for a thinner brow.
Smaller mouth was preferred during that era. This can be achieved by covering the edges of your mouth with foundation and recreating the shape from scratch. Draw inside the natural lip line with dark red pencil and fill in with lipstick (try L’Oreal Endless in Crimson Joy). Finish off with red gloss, like Revlon Super Lustrous Gloss in Get Reddy. Voila!
