Going to dinner in about 2 weeks where the theme is the 20s.
Had appreciated if you would like to put together a make-up (maybe hairstyle?) With this theme? :) Preferably fairly simple but clear 20s! Hug!"
Got this email just recently and since I already have two such makeups in the archive, I thought I would publish them again. One is very old, which is clearly visible in the image quality, but still inspiring :)
Hope they are helpful!
I wanted the lips to have a little discreet ombre on, but not very clear but a little more diffuse. Then I fiddled a bit with the shape as well as you probably see, to get the fluffy feeling that was popular in the 20's! I have put foundation in the edges to make it more fluffy :)
The lipstick I have used is Yves Rocher Grand Rouge Lipstick in shade 23. Violet pro fond. The dark in the contours is just a black eyeliner - the same one I used for the eyes.
1. Black eye shadow on the entire eyelid (slightly higher in the inner edge), gloMinerals Eye Shadow (Sable)
2. Blur the edges.
3. Black eyeliner along the lower lash line (+ a little eye shadow on top), Yves Rocher Eyeliner (01 Noir)
White eyeliner along the waterline, IsaDora Inliner Kajal (50 Satin White)
4. Black eyeliner along the upper lash line (same as before)
Light shimmery eye shadow under the brow and in the corner of the eye, Annika's Favorite Shadow.
5. Black mascara on all lashes, Oriflame The ONE Volume Blast Mascara.
And here is a newer variant that I had at the Swedish Beauty & Cosmetics Awards 2015:
A round sweep that was a little higher on the inside of the eye - a la 20s :)
Black eye shadow on the entire eyelid, Paese Kashmir Eyeshadow (602)
White eye shadow In the corner of the eye, Yag mineral eyeshadow (star white)
A little blue eye shadow at the tip of the eye, Paese Kashmir Neo Eyeshadow (661)
White eyeliner along the waterline, Paese eye pencil white.
Black mascara on the lashes, Paese Adore 3D Lash Mascara.
I felt really aunty in this hairstyle though haha, meeen I pretended that it was the sentence "20s is a bit aunt look" :)
You can make this look even milder even if you e.g. does not thrive in such dark eyes, you do not need to have carbon black shade either but can choose a gray. With marked eyes and plut on the lips together with his outfit, pearls and maybe a feather in his hair, you get far!
