l|w inspired: 1920s flapper

Most of the images you find on Pinterest for this look are a classic smokey eye, winged liner, and red lips. But let's be real, when ever is there a time that smokey eyes and red lips are inappropriate? So to be more true to period makeup, I aimed to replicate the shapes and techniques that were actually popularized in the roaring 20s! Pale skin and heavily set makeup were widely popular being called "panacke" makeup or "cake face" because the setting powder came in a flat tin pan. So I will be using NO bronzer whatsoever as well as a foundation that is easily three shades lighter than my natural tone. They also had a thing for circular shapes, circular small mouths, circular eye sockets, circular rouged cheeks. So instead of almond cat eyes, think big circular sooty eyes! They actually used grease and soot to get those "hotsy totsy" smokey eyes. So don't be shy! Pile on the smoke. Take it easy on the giggle water. And go cut a rug you cheeky bearcat!
