1920s Flapper Makeup Tutorial

1920 Flapper Makeup Tutorial

I’m not a huge fan of costume parties, but I LOVE to get dressed up. My friend threw a 1920s/Gatsby themed party, which meant I got to have some fun. I don’t know how accurate this look is for the 1920s, the lips should probably be a little darker and the eyes a little smokier, but I think it works!
