THE GREAT GATSBY REVIVAL | My carneval look in 2016

Carneval 2016

Make-up in the 20s:

Strong make-up was very essential for the modern look: Rouge, light powder, dark lips, eyes framed with kohl and high, extremely thin eyebrows were part of the typical, slightly wicked make-up of the 2os. It was considered as a bad habit and very impertinent to put make-up on in public. That’s why it was a must for „flapper“ to use thick make up, so it would last longer. Artificiality was super trendy. Basically masked faces were put foward to the bare body. Although a light foundation was common, but a suntan was gaining ground. Tanned skin and sunbathing were completeley new in history. For centuries light and delicate skin used to be a symbol of aristocracy, beauty, prosperity, and wealth, but through the years of the 20s make up became more natural and so sun tanned skin could shine through the foundation.

This year I chose the flapper look for carneval. It was inspired by the movie „the Great Gatsby“ and the 20s.

The „Great Gatsby“ post is another related article which you might be interested in. It is about the history, the fashion and hair style of the 20s.
