Dazzling 1920s Bridal Makeup Tutorial

Step-by-Step 1920s Bridal Makeup Tutorial

The 20s is one of my favourite eras when it comes to make up as I love a bolder lip and a bit of sparkle. It’s a great look for winter brides and if you don’t feel brave enough to wear a really dark lipstick opt for a lip stain instead for a softer look. 

Here is my simple step-by-step tutorial including the products I used to create this look.

First apply a nude matt cream shadow, from the lash line up to the brow bone to create a neutral base.

I used MAC Paint Pot in Painterly £15.50

Using a champagne cream shadow apply over the eyelid, stopping just above the socket.

I used Vintage Selection Paint Pot by MAC £15.50

TIP: To create better adhesion for loose glitter use a cream eye shadow

Cover the cheeks with a tissue to prevent the loose glitter from dropping onto your cheeks and getting messy and for a more contemporary look keep the glitter simple!

I used MAC Glitter ‘Reflects Pearl’ £17.00

Line the lips with a darker lip liner to create a precise shape and this will also prevent the lipstick from ‘bleeding’.

I used MAC Lip Pencil in Spice £12.50

Tip: To keep your lipstick lasting longer, colour in your lips with the lip pencil

Using a lip brush apply a berry toned lipstick which is key for the 20s trend

I used MAC Lipstick in Rebel £15.50
