Era Makeup: The Great Gatsby


This weekend me and the hubs went to see The Great Gatsby! What we thought of the movie wasn't important, but the clothing and jewelry in the movie made me want to fly back to the 20's and go on a MAJOR shopping spree! Carey Mulligan played Daisy Buchanan (Gatsby's love interest) and she looked absolutely breathtaking in every scene. Here's how to get her look:

Step 1: Porcelain girls, play up the pale! Apply your shade of foundation to the skin using a Stipple Brush for an airbrushed effect.

Step 2: Prime eyes using our Cream Eyeshadow in 'Dawn' on the lid and lower lash line. Apply our Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow in 'Miss Popular'  over the cream eyeshadow and blend well.

Step 3: Apply 2 coats of black mascara for definition.

Step 4: Grab our Cream Blush in 'Tease' and apply to the apples of the cheeks and blend down for a flushed look.

Step 5: Instead of applying lipstick straight from the tube, grab your red lipstick (try our Mineral Lipstick in 'Cheerful Cherry') and apply color to your finger. Pat the color onto the lips for a rouge-stained effect.

What did you guys think of the Great Gatsby?
