Get a Dose of Gatsby Glamor

By  May 15, 2013

If you have yet to see The Great Gatsby, what are you waiting for? Baz Luhrmann’s signature lush imagery, a modern soundtrack, and the F. Scott Fitzgerald classic combine to create the perfect cocktail to spice up not just your wardrobe, but your beauty routine as well. While Carey Mulligan’s Daisy Buchanan kept things natural, cosmetic junkies will adore the sultry smoky eye look from Elizabeth Debicki’s Jordan Baker. Elizabeth Arden began building her beauty empire during the Gatsby’s Jazz era, so we turned to Global Makeup Artist Rebecca Restrepo to help us capture the look for ourselves.

Restrepo recommended starting the Beautiful Color Eye Shadow in Truffle along the lid and lower lashes and adding a line of the Beautiful Color Smoky Eyes Pencil in Gunmental along the lash lines. To amp up the eye at night, she advised applying a rich shade on the outer corner of the eye and dragging it to the lower lashes using the shadow singles in Sparkling Sable of Shimmering Emerald. Add on a few swipes of the Beautiful Color Lash Enhancing Mascara. For a pristine complexion, apply the Flawless Finish Sponge-On Cream Makeup, working from the center of the face outwards to better cover any imperfections. While Jean Harlow’s pencil-thin brows were the look du jour, you can achieve the polish of age with a touch of the Beautiful Color Brow Shaper. A rich red lip never goes never goes out of style, so add a swipe of the Beautiful Color Luminous Lip Gloss in Red Door Red.
