We're at war!!
Just finished 2 looks from the 1920's. We re-created the "It" look, most commonly warn by Clara Bow. Miss Bow was the "It-Girl" in the 20's starring in many silent films as a flapper girl, and became the sex symbol of the time. During the roaring 20's, because of the war, the women wore their eye makeup and their eyebrows downcasted to look sad. They also wore "bee-stung" lips for the cute little pouty effect. First, we did the 1920's Film look, which you work with the person's natural eyebrows and lips because on film you can see every little detail so nothing can be too fake. But for our 2nd look, 1920's Theatre, we blocked out the person's eyebrows (using spirit gum, wax & lots of concealer) and drew in completely new ones. Also, the lips were concealed to look smaller because with theatre, the actresses are further away from the audience so you wouldn't notice how caked on their make-up really was.
Have a look! It was the most challenging make-up I've done so far.
