Michelle Phan transports us back to the roaring ’20s in this creative YouTube tutorial — and gives us the perfect smoky eye to go along with it. After creating a gray-black gradient on each eye and smoking it out on the lower lash area, she finishes up the face with a stunning red lip.
The Flapper With the Faux Bob
The bob is a signature flapper hair-cut, but when it comes to chopping your own tresses for the costume, we’d advise against it (unless you want to, of course!). Brittany Sarah demonstrates the perfect curvy, finger-wave look for long hair that can be transformed into a totally faux bob illusion.
Going spooky with your flapper costume is perfect for Halloween, which is why this tutorial by Nikki French is one of our favorites. She contours all areas of her face, chest and shoulders with gray and black shadows, and completes her haunting eyes with a white-ish touch of the NYX Professional Makeup Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk.
