Be a Roaring Twenties Flapper...mark Style!

Since I first read F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby more than a decade ago, I have adored flappers and the Roaring Twenties – an obsession that has recently been reignited via Anna Godbersen’s Bright Young Things trilogy. One of the things that has made the era stick out so strongly in my mind? The makeup, fashions, and accessories, of course – all of which, I have found, can be obtained (affordably!) via one of my favorite makeup and fashion brands in the world…mark!

The Makeup:

This mark-created look (seen on mark spokesperson Ashley Greene) is called Very Berry and, in my opinion, is the perfect Roaring Twenties look. Here’s how to achieve it (as reprinted from mark):

FACE: Apply Got the Goods Multi-Benefit Foundation Lotion SPF 15 in a complementary shade all over the face to even out skin tone.
EYES: Sweep I-mark Wet/Dry Eye Shadow in shade puff along the brow bones and lids. Apply shade tiki from the lash line to the crease of the eye. Line the outer corner and bottom lash line with No Place to Run Longwear Eyeliner in shade foxy brown. Brush two coats of Lash Act Build and Define Mascara in shade blackest black onto lashes.
CHEEKS: Dust Just Blushing Powder Blush in shade dollhouse on apples of the cheeks and blend upward.
LIPS: Apply Make It Rich Lip Color Crayon in shade royale.

The Accessories:

Now that you’ve Got the Roaring Twenties Flapper Look, let me introduce you to a few mark accessories that I was lucky enough to receive, which stay perfectly in tune with the flapper vibe (and make perfect sparkly additions to your accessory collection)!

mark Longing For It Earrings I’m more of a studs girl myself, but there are times when you went to feel big, dangly earrings sweeping your bare shoulders to make you feel ultra-glamorous, which is why I love these. The color is this super rich, bright silver (almost with a white undertone) that is incredibly eye-catching, and seriously make your eyes sparkle like crazy if you keep your hair pulled up in a wispy topknot. Like the mark Show Your Metal Necklace I reviewed last week, these are incredibly lightweight, so you don’t wind up with a headache after a few hours of wear. Super fun – especially for Date Nights or Girls Night Out! $20.00.

mark Add Sparkle Headbands I love, love flapper-esque headbands that wrap around your head, but they are basically ruled out for me because I have bangs; so I absolutely adore these Add Sparkle Headbands, because they have that dreamy Twenties Girl vibe without leaving your bangs a mess. These are a really sweet, glittery addition to simple ponies; and give you that Louis Vuitton Spring / Summer 2012 girly vibe if you slip them on with a high ballerina bun. I like to wear both colors together for extra sparkle. $14.00 for two.

mark Nice Accent Scarf This is probably one of the most versatile accessories I have every owned. The shade is similar to a light milk chocolate and interwoven with gold pieces to make it shimmer (which is what makes it seem very glamorous and flapper-ish to me); and the rayon construction makes it incredibly lightweight, so that you can kind of toss it on with anything in your closet – I paired it with black skinny jeans, a black tank top, and my mark High Drama Pumps (reviewed here) for a friend’s birthday not too long ago, and it looked amazing. It’s a really fun piece to have if you want to add a subtle shimmer to your outfit!$16.00.

What do you think of this mark makeup look? Will you be picking up any of these flapper-ific accessories?

I adore the 20's look so much, can't wait for the new Great Gatsby movie-I still haven't read it though so I'm hoping to get round to it before the movie is out :)

The flapper look is one of my favourites. I would have loved to have been around then (or during the 60's!)
That make up look is perfect.

i wouldn't have thought the scarf had a shimmer based on the photo, but it's very cute. I think I'd like it. The sparkly headbands are adorable as well! I do like old-fashioned looks. I know a girl that pulls it off quite well.

Love a berry lip! I've been on the hunt for a lipstick shade that's a good fit for my skin tone and I think this Mark lipstick may be it!
