The release of the highly anticipated Baz Luhrmann film adaptation of “The Great Gatsby” now just a week away, we feel compelled to pay homage to that era of glitz and glam, better known as The Roaring Twenties. With their flapper-girl bobs, soft-smokey eyes, lived-in flush and perfectly-stained lips, the ladies of the ‘20s remain the definition of well-defined glamour, inspiring everyone from Ralph Lauren to Gucci. Caught up in the excitement of it all, we’ve rounded up a selection of beauty products fit for any modern-day Daisy Buchanan -or Jordan, or Myrtle for that matter—from the era’s signature sculpted brows and rouged cheeks to the creamy berry-hued lips that no self-respecting Jazz Age beauty would leave home without!
The last trick to fully embrace the ’20s vibe , is to scrap the fake tan, ladies; the roaring ’20s were all about an uber-creamy complexion. To ensure you’re the fairest of them all, try a sheer powder. Resist the urge to hit the bronzer and opt instead for a pale pink blush to highlight your newly-flawless face. Now that the hard part of sorting through the beauty counters is done, all you need to do is decide which dazzling Gatsby beauty to channel come a fancy night out on the town. We can just imagine the ’20s-inspired flapper-style frocks and finger wave trends that will no doubt follow.
