1920s makeup fotd and tutorial

Hey guys, sorry that it's been so long since I've posted...Pretty busy over here.

I was challenged to do 1920s makeup by a few friends, I really enjoy how it turned out. There are a few traits that were commonly seen within 1920's style makeup:

very thin arched brows that turned downward
deep plum lips
lips were very defined. Cupid's bow was accentuated to be made taller, and the width of the mouth was de-accentuated.
bright pink blush on the apples of the cheeks
very dark eye makeup both above and under the eye.









Products used:

-Eyes
MAC Shadows: Beauty Marked, Sketch, and a tiny bit of Cranberry
MAC Smolder eye kohl

-Skin
MAC studio fix fluid
MAC studio fix powder
MAC fashion frenzy blush

-Lips
MAC Currant lip pencil
MAC Scene lipstick


Check out my youtube channel for the tutorial.
