We are in a new decade my friends! Yet, I decided to bring in 2020 with a 1920s makeup look that is full of timeless style. In the ‘20s, screen sirens Clara Bow, Lupe Velez and Greta Nelson symbolized the epitome of beauty. These ladies created that signature vintage look by painting their lips red, drawing on their brows and using dark shadows around their eyes for dramatic effect. Fast-forward to today, and celebrities such as Demi Lovato, Katy Perry and even Vanessa Hudgens have all rocked 1920s-inspired makeup.
Ready to go back to the Roaring Twenties? Watch the video above as I, your Accidental Beauty Blogger, create a 1920s makeup look using modern beauty products. Then keep reading below for more details on why you’ll want to add these items to your beauty bag.
Anastasia Beverly Hills has some seriously good brow products, which is not surprising since that is what the brand’s founder Anastasia Saore is known for. The Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade gave me everything from color, fullness and shape. I love that it was a matte dip brow because It was exactly what I was looking for in order to recreate that statement ‘20s brow.
Charlotte Tilbury Starry Eyes To Hypnotise Eyeshadow Palette is filled with beautiful shimmers and mattes. The 12-shadow palette includes four groupings of pigments to achieve any look. Lately, it’s been really hard for me to find a super dark black shadow, so I was so happy when I discovered this palette. The black color is especially rich and deep, and will quickly become your favorite. But hurry, because this is a limited-edition product.
The MAC Prep + Prime Lip Base is something I never thought of trying before. I never think to “prep” my lips before applying any lipstick, however, the formula is incredible. It is a wax-free, triple threat gel system that enhances non-sticky, gloss. Trust me, your lips will be prepped and ready for lipstick with this treatment.
MAC Patent Paint Lip Lacquer in Eternal Sunshine was essential for this look. In the 1920s, red lipstick was a staple. I decided to go with a lighter, shiny red lip instead of the deep dark hues women wore back in the day. MAC Patent Paint Lip Lacquer is a creamy lip shine that provides instant moisture that lasts all day. The best part is that this product is available in 15 shades, ranging from peachy nudes to bold reds and purples.
The Ultimate Must-Have
The Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade is an amazing waterproof formula that is a full pigment. It was really easy to fill in my eyebrows, especially as someone who doesn’t know much about styling brows. I was also able to create the eyebrow shape I always wanted, and I believe using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dual-Ended detailed brush helped with the definition.
