The Great Gatsby Look From Head To Toe

The Roaring Twenties, an era filled with Jazz music, cigarette smoke, cash flow, and booze, think the gilded age, like “The Great Gatsby” novel or an antiquated Las Vegas. The flapper girls of the day, free as butterflies, showcased the best bright red lips, exaggerated cupid’s bow, rouged cheeks, kohl-lined eyes, and intense lashes. Using only Mac Cosmetics, enclosed are three beauty must-haves to recreate your own Great Gatsby look.

[RED ROCK – MATTE LIPSTICK]

Not your typical matte red lip. This fire engine red goes on creamy, looks velvety, feels hydrating, and lasts for hours.

[PEARL VARNISH – MAC STUDIO EYE GLOSS]

For eyes that sparkle, enhance them with a pearl infused eye gloss. A great stand-alone product, even better over eyeshadow, especially smoky eyes for that vinyl effect. Comes in four colors (seen here in white), also in beige, burgundy, and gold.

[3D BLACK – EXTREME DIMENSION LASH MASCARA]

Deep-black mascara color with a large brush for maximum volume, curl, and clump-free lashes that won’t smudge. Sampled sized for your convenience or in full size.

[HAIRSTYLE AND FASHION TIPS]

Flapper girl fashion was ambiguous but flashy, women wore knee-length short-sleeved (or sleeveless) shapeless beaded, fringe and sequin dresses, short hair (boyish bobs and finger wave curls) with tiaras or headbands, drop earrings, layered pearl necklaces, art deco pendants, a fur shawl, silk or leather elbow gloves, arm bangles, jeweled cuffs, diamond rings, a feathered fan, a clutch bag on-chain and velvet t-strap mary jane heels.

The Great Gatsby look will never go out of style, go full glam or incorporate pieces into your wardrobe for subtle charm.
