Hallowe'en 2012: 20s Flapper Girl

This is a very late Hallowe'en post just to show you what I wore!  I went out on the actual day which was last Wednesday, and we went to a club in Glasgow city centre.

I already had the costume as I wore it the last time I went out, which was 3 years ago when I was in 1st year at uni!  Unfortunately that time apparently I swapped my head band for a red indian one (no idea...) so I was going to make one but I just ran out of time!

I was also late as usual so I don't have any full length photos sadly but here is one of my make up and a couple from in the club!

Halloween dress up

I was going to try and finger wave my hair but there were so many things which could go wrong as I hadn't tried it!  However Rebekah (The Black Swan above!) very kindly offered to let me borrow her waving tongs which give the same sort of effect but with minimal effort!

I wore Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation in Shade 2 then on my eyes an old ELF brown cream eyeliner (which I binned after as it was soo dried out!) and a matte black shadow on the top and blended out.  I tried to make my eyebrows thinner as 20s girls tended to have quite thin, curved brows.  On my lips I wore Avon Ultra Colour Rich 24k Gold in Golden Wine (not CF) but only applied to the centre of the lips to make them look very round.  I also used Laguna to add some colour to the back of the cheeks.

This make up is not particularly flattering as you can see in the photos but I think (hope) it reflects the 20s era quite accurately :)

What did you dress up as?
