1920s makeup

1920s Lips
Find deep red, deep brownish reds, plum or orange lipsticks to wear for the early twenties. For the end of the twenties, wear colors like rose, raspberry or medium red.The lipstick is applied as a “cupids bow” to the upper lip and extended at the lower lip.

1920s Eyebrows
1920s eyebrows are very high, thin and arched usually drawn in pencil. Cover your normal eyebrows using nose putty or soap. Use concealer or camouflage makeup to hide them by blending with your skin tone, then draw away!

1920 Face Makeup Routine
1. Exfoliate to give a clear base of makeup.
2. Cleanse the face to remove shine.
3. Apply a makeup primer.
4. Apply a foundation. You want a very pale look so use a foundation 2-3 shaders paler than your skin tone.
5. Apply blush to your cheek bones…a cherry red is the most authentic.
