FINALLY! I officially filmed my first makeup tutorial! I have been excited to explore this new avenue with my blog and figured Halloween would be a perfect place to start. A 1920’s flapper is a classic, dramatic, and fun look that is always timeless for any dress up or Halloween extravaganza 🙂
Now there was no specific technique or palette I was trying to use in particular; this is not meant to be difficult or simple. This tutorial is literally what I would of done or use if I were to be a Flapper for Halloween!
Tarte’s Clean Slate Poreless 12-Hour Perfecting Primer
Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Foundation
Mac Pro Longwear Concealer
Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer
Mac “Pink Swoon” Blush
Mac “Fever” Blush
Maybelline Color Tattoo Leather Collection “Creamy Beige”
Mac “Orb” Eyeshadow
Mac “Soft Brown” Eyeshadow
Mac “Brown Script” Eye Shadow
Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadow “Moonlit Jewels” (dark brown, light beige, emerald green)
Naked 2 “Foxy” and “Booty Call”
L’oreal Smoldering Eyeliner
Any black eyeliner
Any white eyeliner
Any liquid or gel liner
Maybelline Pumped Up Colossal Mascara
Ardell Glamor Lashes 102 Demi Pixies Black
Sephora Nano Lip Pencil 20 “Real Red”
Maybelline “Blissful Berry” Lipstick
I know this may seem like a lot of different products but you can take, pull, or tweak any step of this tutorial!
Some tips to perfecting this look:
- BLEND! Blend, blend, blend! We are adding a lot of shadow, dark shadows, so when you take the time to keep blending, it makes the look appear smoked and smooth as apposed to harsh and direct.
- Focus on blush as appose to bronzer. From what you can see from my tutorial, I only apply a light wash of bronzer for definition but the attention is really highlighted on a flapper’s rosy cheeks.
- Give your look some full Baby Boop lips, it really ties in the look.
- I tried to make my face appear lighter to give the full effect of the 1920s look; Mac’s Pro Lorgwear concealer would be a fantastic match if you are into a full face!
Thank you all so much and hopefully I can get another Halloween tutorial up soon! Bare with me on the video, it was my first recorded tutorial! And trust me, I am actually in a happy mood, I just look serious in the video. Consintration is key 🙂
