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.

Black Magic is a very dark matte black eyeshadow. It has no reflects, shimmer, or hidden undertones. It’s the Little Black Dress of the makeup world and a must-have for every makeup collection. Ashley applies both Clean Slate and Black Magic with Red Apple lipsticks Vegan Wet/Dry Brush

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

During this time period, eyebrows were very thin and long. To create this look, Ashley used the Vegan Angled Eye brush along with Red Apple Lipstick’s Espresso Eye shadow to create and define a narrow and long eyebrow look.

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.
