1920s inspired look! Hair, Fashion, Make up


Yesterday I was invited to a themed birthday party. 
The theme: 1920s!
I found this to be the perfect opportunity to get creative!
I am going to share my look with you.. 
I hope you enjoy reading this post as much as enjoyed creating it!


The first thing I did (of course) was getting all of my pearls and similar jewelry out :)


After that I searched the internet and found the nail art that was (apparently) very in trend at that time.. and recreated it! I used tape that and my Revlon nail polish in the color 620 BEWITCHING.


After that, it was time to do my hair!
This took me quite a while. This is what I did: I did a side part and then divided my hair into four sections (I have quite a bit of hair). I then proceeded to curl small bits of hair starting from the middle and rolling my iron as I went. That way I concentrated more on the upper parts of my hair.



I used hairspray every time I curled a bit of hair.


After I finished curling my entire hair, I brushed it out with a tangle taser (a comb should work as well).


 I then added lots of pins to the hair around my face in order to create the finger wave look.



After that, it was time for make up. I inspired myself with an actress from the 1920s - Louise Brooks and also make up ads from that era.


*Make up I used at the end of the post*


In the end it turned out a little bit like this..


And here is the finished look! The dress is from MANGO and the shoes are from a little store here in Croatia!




I really hope you enjoyed the post!
