The 1920s was an iconic era of fashion and beauty, known for its daring and glamorous looks. One of the signature makeup trends of the time was bold, smoky eyes that emphasized the natural shape of the eyes.
If you want to recreate this classic look, follow these simple steps:
Step 1: Prep your Eye Area
Before applying any makeup, prep your eye area by applying a small amount of eye cream to the under-eye area and eyelids. This will help to hydrate and smooth out any fine lines or wrinkles.
Step 2: Apply Eye Primer
Next, apply a thin layer of eye primer to your eyelids. This will help to prolong the wear of your eyeshadow and prevent creasing.
Step 3: Apply a Neutral Base
Select a neutral eyeshadow shade that matches your skin tone. Apply this shade to the entire eyelid using a flat eyeshadow brush.
Step 4: Add Depth with a Darker Shade
Select a darker eyeshadow shade in the same family as your neutral base color. Using a crease brush, apply this shade to the outer corner of the eye and blend it into the crease. This will add depth and definition to your eyes.
Step 5: Apply Eyeliner
Using a black liquid eyeliner, draw a thin line along the upper lash line. Begin at the inner corner of the eye and work your way outwards, creating a subtle wing at the outer corner.
Step 6: Smoke out the Lower Lash Line
Using a smudge brush, apply the same darker eyeshadow shade you used in step 4 to the lower lash line. Blend it outwards to create a smoky effect.
Step 7: Apply Mascara
Finish off the look by applying black mascara to the upper and lower lashes. You can also add false lashes for extra drama.
And there you have it – a glamorous 1920s-inspired eye makeup look that is perfect for any special occasion or night out on the town!
