Playing with the most current beauty trends is always fun, but sometimes incorporating elements from the past can really take a look to the next level.  Everyone has a favorite decade, but we’ll start our look into the past with the first decade that really made an impact in terms of makeup and hair trends: the roaring 20s!


Seeing pictures from the set of the upcoming “The Great Gatsby” has us swooning over 1920s makeup and hair trends (and maybe Leo, too).  Finger waves! Kohl-rimmed eyes! Deep burgundy lips! We want it all! It is so easy to incorporate any, or all, of these looks into your 2013 routine. Just switch up some of your go-to products with our Planet Beauty approved suggestions!

As with any look, start with a clean, even base. After your morning skincare routine, prep the skin with a primer. We like Philosophy’s The Present, which is an oil-free primer that hydrates the skin, minimizes fine lines and pores, and gives makeup an airbrushed finish. Wait until it dries, then apply your favorite foundation. Stila Illuminating Liquid Foundation will provide even coverage and give your skin a healthy glow.

The art of contouring wasn’t well known in the 1920s, but because we know now how amazing it can be, go ahead and give your cheekbones a lift with Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer if you have a darker skin tone, or Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer Matte Bronzing powder (which is a lighter shade than the original formula).

To get that signature kohl-rimmed look, line the upper and lower lash line with liner. Use Smashbox Waterproof Shadow Liner, then use the smudging tool the gently blur the line around the eyes. Follow with two coats of black mascara (our fave is Peter Thomas Roth Lashes to Die For).

Dark lips were a 20s trademark. To get them, line your lips (Smashbox has creamy, long-lasting pencil liners). Extra points if you create the 20s pursed-lip shape that was huge back then! Follow with Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Fig. It’s a dark wine shade that is very mysterious and chic (see above!).

Achieving them may take some practice, but Finger Waves are the perfect way to finish this look and transport you back to the 20s. A curling iron is the tool you’ll need, we like Hot Tools Pink Titanium in the 1¼-inch size. Follow the steps in this great video for easy finger waves!

Pinning the curl allows it to cool into a tight spiral that will then be brushed out to make the look less severe. There are tons of other videos online that show you how to make tight finger waves, but this method above yields results that are wearable and still fashion-forward.

The absolute best way to finish this entire look is with a flapper dress, complete with fringe and sequins. If that’s too much for you (we’re guessing it is!) just stick with the makeup and leave the fringe for Halloween or a themed bash!
