Beauty School: How to Get the Roaring ’20s Look

By  October 23, 2013

Sultry and glamorous was the name of the game at the 9th Annual Green Gatsby Gala, where models walked the runway styled in eco-friendly flapper fashion. Makeup mavens Amanda Natov and Ryan Bustos for Chantecaille and hair expert Sherilynn Jade for Pureology, the artists behind the ’20s inspired beauty, provide tips on how to create the lustrous looks from our favorite decade at home.

The Hair:
While the finger waved bob is the eptimone of 20s hair, the modern “gibson” is an easier ’20s look if you’re dealing with longer locks. The soft style takes your curled tresses and compiles them into a chic chignon at the base of the neck, with waved pieces free to fall around your face. To prep hair, the team used the Fresh Approach Dry Shampoo by Pureology at the roots and the brand’s Fresh Approach Dry Conditioner at the bottom for extra shine and manageability. Then, locks were set with curlers, every other one alternating direction. Finally, let curls out, part hair in the middle, and pin into a loosely twisted bun at the base. Finish off with Pureology Colour Stylist Supreme Control Hairspray for protection.

The Makeup:
Porcelain Skin
Soft and luminous, the 1920s face is a picture of flawlessness. Use a perfecting powder to create lightweight radiance for the perfect base of your look.

Dark smokey eyes
Start with an ultra thin swipe of eyeliner above the lashes to outline the eye. Then, to create drama and effortless sexiness, use gradations of deep plum shadows near the lash line, smudging it out towards the upper parts of the lid. Accent the eye with a touch of charcoal shadow, making it heavier on the bottom. Finish it off by adding falsies and by layering both a lash extending mascara and a volumizing mascara.
