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:

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

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

MAC Currant lip pencil
MAC Scene lipstick

Check out my youtube channel for the tutorial.
