Makeup is one of the many different aspects of our appearance that is known to change over time. If you are planning on wearing a flapper costume that requires you to apply 1920s makeup, then you might be interested in knowing more about the makeup trends during this time. Here are some of the makeup trends that were most common during the 20’s.
1920s Eye Makeup Trends
Eye Makeup trends were the most noticeable things about makeup during the 1920s. During this time, women generally wore little to no eyeliner. When it was worn, it was a very thin line that was worn thicker at each corner of the bottom eyelid.
Dark eye shadow was worn on the top lid and did not usually go over the crease of the lid. Only one color was used, in comparison to the two to three that we normally use when creating a smoky eye shadow appearance.
1920's Eyelash and Eyebrow Trends
Along with eye makeup, eyelash and eyebrow trends played a very important role in the overall flapper look. One of the many goals that flappers had during the 1920s with their appearance was to put emphasis on the eyelashes. To achieve this look, be sure to curl your eyelashes and apply mascara. Eyebrows were generally kept very long and quite thin.
1920s Lip Makeup Trends
Lip makeup also played a major role in the appearance of flappers during the 20s. The general trend was to use very bold lipstick colors, such as red. Lips were meant to look plump and a bit pouty.
Use a lip liner to draw your top lip smaller than it really is and draw your bottom lip slightly shorter at each corner.
Apply concealer in the areas where you ended your lips too short, so that they will blend in with your natural skin.
