The Roaring 20s

Smoky sophisticated eyes and deeply reddened, wine stained lips…hallmarks of the roaring 20’s party IT girl, when fashion took women in an entirely new direction! Whether you are dressing up as a flapper for Halloween, or just want to create a sultry date night look, this is a feminine option focusing on rich jewel tones. The perfect palette for fall!

Begin by adding a very soft highlight to the brow bone, but stick with a matte product because you will be adding shimmer to the rest of the lid! Try patting on a layer of Velour Pressed Powder in Faire (the lightest shade) using the #33 Flat Eyeshadow Brush.

Multi-tonal shades combine in one powder to ideally match your skin tone, while the silky formula provides a soft matte finish.

To build the base for high intensity eyes, place the Duo Eye Pencil in Midnight/Smoke into the crease very lightly and along the lower lash line. Then blend the color softly with the #22 Large Eyeshadow Brush to eliminate any harsh edges. Two shades in one generously sized pencil delivers velvety color that easily blends and smudges for super smokiness.

Next, load up the #22 Large Eyeshadow Brush with VL’s new Cangiante Dimensional Eyeshadow in Hypnotize (a dusky cornflower blue) and blend this color into the base you’ve just made. The shadow will adhere to the pencil, helping it to stay in place and also further accentuating the blue color. With a demi-matte finish and a sheer touch of sensual color, the weightless texture of our Cangiante shadows can be applied dry or wet for long wearing impact.

Next, deepen the pitch slightly by darkening the crease area and the area along the lower lash line. Try the Trio Pearl-To-Matte Eyeshadow compact in Forever, using the cobalt blue shade (#3) and a #22 Large Eyeshadow Brush. A palette of three textures ranging from shimmer to matte, allow you to experiment and come up with your own personal favorite shading.

Produce another base color in the center of the eye by adding the Duo Eyeliner Pencil in Raisin Carnet/Esmerelda. Next pack on a pearly layer of dark purple shine from the Trio Diamond Eyeshadow in Champagne Lily with a Crème/Liner Brush. This will break up the overall color scheme and give you a nice pop of purple!

Line the waterline with the Duo Eye Pencil in Jet Black/Black Brown, and then generate a truly smoky effect by smudging along the lower lashes with the jet black shade from the Timeless Trio Eyeshadow Palette. Drag the #18 Small Eyeshadow Brush smoothly under your lashes to blend the color.

Next up are false lashes! First curl your top lashes before applying Ardell #125 Lashes and the blend the faux with the real by covering lashes with a generous coating of Lush Length Mascara. Also add mascara to bottom lashes.

Finish “hiding” the falsies by topping it off with another layer of eyeliner, like VL’s Crème Gel Liner in Blu Raven (a creamy black with hints of blue pearl). This luxurious gel pairs cutting edge technology with classic liquid liner ideology for a saturated finish with depth and dimension. Use the Crème/Liner Brush for an even, flawless application.

Enhance your natural brow shape with Bi Brow Powder Pomade, but try to arch this a little more than you normally would to get that great Gatsby-esque feeling! Using a #12 Liner/Brow Brush, contour and build volume moving from the front to the edge of brow hairs. This split-pan compact combines sheer tinted pomade with brow-filling powder for a polished, easy way to perfection.

Add Water Canvas Blush in Swan Lake (a rosy pink) to the upper cheek in a circular motion. This will be on the “apple,” and maybe an inch or two above that area. Containing 75% Microwater with botanical seaweed extract and Vitamin E to moisturize and protect skin, the unique cream-to-powder formula is easy to apply and imparts a healthy-looking, long lasting flush of color.

Place La Bella Luce Highlighter in Flora onto the cheeks, nose and chin with a Velour Puff to get skin glowing! Hints of lustrous pink hued glimmer gives an ethereal glow with luminescent pearls that reflect light to brighten any complexion.

Line the lips using the Jet Black/Black Brown Duo Eye Pencil for some serious drama! We are going to use this to help give us a dark berry color, so draw the corners of the cupids bow upward to accentuate the point in the lip. Now fill in the area with Demi Matte Velour Lipstick in Saye Rose and the #36 Travel Lip Brush. Richly pigmented, dramatic color incorporates a peptide complex that rejuvenates, firms and enhances lip volume.

Blend the Jet Black/Black Brown Duo Eye Pencil into this color to change it into a much darker berry. Finish with a beautiful layer of sheen and moisture with the #36 Brush and Perfect Shine Lip Gloss in Costa Fiore, a rich, shiny, blackberry. A smooth, comfortable and cushiony feeling on the lip, Perfect Shine glosses condition with Aloe Vera and Vitamin E.

The last draw…a fake beauty mark, placed on the face in your desired location! If you have darker skin and hair, try the black side of our Jet Black/Black Brown Duo Eye Pencil. Fairer types should use the brown shade to draw onto the skin instead!
