Happy FRI-YAY. I bet you weren’t expecting ANOTHER MAKEUP TUTORIAL, NOW WERE YOU? Well, if you follow me on Instagram, you actually probably were. You are getting TWO extra videos this week, this 1920’s Chelsea Grin and another not-yet-revealed video tomorrow (Yes — I’m posting on a SATURDAY — GASSSPPPPP). AnyWAYS. I love love love the 1920’s. The flapper girl era is where my heart belongs so I have been wanting to recreate a genuine makeup look, and naturally….it ended up taking a dark twist! Enjoy the intro to this video — I crack up every time I watch it. LOL.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial — and here are some fun 1920’s facts about flapper girls you MAY NOT HAVE KNOWN. #knowledge
The term flapper originated in Great Britain, when young women wore rubber galoshes left open to flap when they walked.
The flapper dress was boxy and hung straight from shoulder to knee, with no waistline, allowing much more freedom of movement than women’s fashions before the 1920s.
Cosmetics had long been associated with prostitutes and actresses, but flappers considered it glamorous to wear dark red lipstick, lots of rouge, and thick black lines around their eyes.
Maybelline and Coty began manufacturing products to help women achieve the new look. For the first time, women began to carry cosmetics with them in handbags wherever they went.
Maybe I love this era so much because it was kind of when makeup was BORN for the everyday woman. They were feeling freedom and I love that SO much.
