How to-Adorable Halloween 1920’s Flapper Makeup
Let’s take a walk back in time to a decade of jazz bands and flappers with new styles of dancing and dressing and letting loose in the “Roaring 1920s.” In this tutorial, Ashley shows you how to create a fun, simple yet elegant 1920’s Flapper makeup look for Halloween. With just a few things you might already own in your closet or a quick trip out thrifting you will be able to create this makeup look in no time at all. The point being, just have fun with it.
Makeup You’ll Need To Create This Halloween Flapper Look – Eyes
Prime Time Eyeshadow Primer
In this video, Ashley uses Red Apple Lipsticks Prime Time Eyeshadow Primer all over the lid and under-eye area. The primer helps to cover any discolorations on the eyelid and will prevent your eyeshadow from creasing.
Porcelain Eye Shadow
Ashley uses Red Apple Lipsticks Porcelain Eyeshadow all over the lid as a base color. Porcelain is a light, matte, off-white, creamy nude eyeshadow that has a slightly pinkish, peachy yellow tint to it.
Black Eyeliner Pencil
In this tutorial, Ashley uses Red Apple Lipsticks Black Eyeliner Pencil on her upper lash line, lower lash line, and both upper and lower water lines. This doesn’t need to be a precise application because she demonstrates for the 1920’s ‘vampy” look the eyeliner will be smoked/smudged out anyway.
Clean Slate/Black Magic Eyeshadows
Clean Slate is a matte cool-toned dark gray with an ever so slight purple tint. In this tutorial, Ashley mixes together both Clean Slate and Black Magic Eyeshadows. A lot of the 1920’s eye makeup was sooty, ashy, and charcoaly. These blended colors are applied with a wet-dry brush focused on the outer edges of the eyes along the lash line and blended into the crease leaving the middle open to the Porcelain eyeshadow.
The Lash Project Mascara
The Lash Project Mascara is a Hypo-Allergenic Mascara that is classic and timeless in satin black and gives your lashes a weightless, soft feathery look all while defining and strengthening your lashes. Ashley applies the mascara to both her upper and lower lashes.
Vegan Angled Eye Brush and Espresso
Espresso is a very dark, matte coffee bean brown eyeshadow. This eyeshadow works beautifully for eyeshadow or as an eyebrow filler.
Makeup You’ll Need To Create This Halloween Flapper Look – Lips
You’ll wonder how you ever lived without this Vegan Lip Brush! This professional artist’s lip brush is designed to perfectly pick up just the right amount of lipstick and lay it down perfectly smooth. For a perfectly defined lip, use the lip brush to line your lips first to create serious definition
Rebel mixed with this Black eyeliner pencil on the back of your hand will give you a dark rich red needed for the vampy look for this Flapper costume.
How To Pull Your Entire Flapper Costume Together
You can finish your adorable Flapper costume look with just a few more items outside the makeup look. You can first evaluate what you might already have just sitting around your house that will work, but thrifting second-hand stores is another great way to pick costume pieces without breaking the bank. Even asking around to friends, family, or neighbors for borrowing a few needed pieces.
The first thing you will need for your costume if you can’t style your own hair would be a wig. A common hairstyle during the Roaring ’20s for Flappers and a lot of women, in general, is the Bob. Next, a pretty embellished headband, long gloves, bangles, long necklace, and an accessory such as a purse/clutch and or a fan as Ashley shows in this tutorial. The next piece would be to find a drop waist style dress with sheer stockings. T-strap shoes with a lower heal will totally finish your Flapper costume.
