Great Gatsby Party


Hello my loves! Sorry I’ve been MIA. My last post was right before my brothers 30th/1920’s Great Gatsby party and it was also right before my portfolio class finished. A lot has happened over the last month and a half! After portfolio class I started special effects class, which was a lot of fun. Unfortunately, after about a week and a half (about 2 weeks ago) I began having allergic reactions to the makeup and my face broke out in blisters all over. It was awful and I had to discontinue because I could no longer get special effects makeup put on me and I couldn’t find a replacement model. I learned a lot though during my short time in special effects class; it was a fun ride! Now that I am done with my program at Makeup Designory I will be posting a lot more, and plan to start working soon and follow my dream!

Anyways, my brothers 30th birthday was at the end of May, and it was 1920’s Great Gatsby themed. On February 26 I posted a practice makeup for the party. The actual look that I did was similar to the practice, except I went with a darker lip and learned how to do a modern finger wave using a waving iron. I hope this is useful for anyone who has a 1920’s themed party in the future!!






Jewelry: Headband- by 1920sMivanwi on Etsy (this was a replica of Daisy’s in the Great Gatsby. It was PERFECT!) Hand Chain Bracelet- by ALLABOUTMYJEWELRY on Etsy (another replica of Daisy’s in the Great Gatsby, also amazing and a great fit!) Vintage Cigarette Holder- by FashionPipes on Etsy.


Outfit: Dress- Wes Scalloped Beaded Shift Dress by Alice + Olivia


Hair: Curl hair from top of head to the bottom of earlobes with Bed Head Wave Artist Deep Waver and curl the rest of hair using a regular curling iron. I used a 1 inch barrel Gold Curling Iron by Hot Tools. 



Face- I first applied Cetaphil Oil Control Moisturizer followed by Giorgio Armani’s Luminous Silk Foundation in 6.5 (I was using 5.5 but realized it had more of a red/pink undertone and my skin is more of an olive undertone). I then contoured my face using the Make Up For Ever Flash Color Case. As I’ve done in previous posts, to highlight I mixed the white and peach with a drop of my foundation and to shadow I mixed the brown and white (also with a drop of my foundation). I applied Illamasqua cream blush, in Rude to the apples of my cheeks. I used Copacabana by Nars as my illuminator above cheeks, on my nose, and forehead.

Eyes- I first used Urban Decay Primer Potion on my eyelids. I used Naked 2 Palette by Urban Decay “Bootycall” to highlight and clean up my brow bone area. I used “Verve” from Naked 2 on my eyelid, and then applied a mixture of “Pistol” and “Blackout” to the crease of my eye, using windshield wiper motions and then blended the color upwards using circular motions to ensure that the eyeshadow is blended. On the outer “v” (outer corner) of my eye I used Diamond Black 307 eye shadow by Make Up For Ever. I also applied this below my lashes (don’t be afraid to go thick for this look) and I connected it to the top “v”. I applied Chanel Le Crayon Khol Intense Eye Pencil Noir to my bottom waterline and applied black AMC Gel Liner #77 from Inglot Cosmetics to my upper lash line. I then curled my lashes with my Billy B Beauty’s Eyelash Curler and applied Tarte MultiplEYE-prime followed by Lights, Camera, Flashes by Tarte. I used the Brow Bar To Go by Whitening Lightning on my eyebrows, followed by Make Up For Ever Brow Seal.

Lips- Satin Black” from Make Up For Ever mixed with Mac Red by M.A.C. Cosmetics. I used this in my previous post “Born to be Wild” except I used more of the Mac Red.


I hope you enjoyed this 1920′s Great Gatsby look! Please be sure to follow me on Instagram and Twitter @Glamvasion, like my Facebook page and subscribe to my blog via email! Xo 🙂
