20s and 30s look
Our first how-to class was on the silent movie era of the 20s and 30s as a film buff I immediately thought of Anna Mae Wong and Clara Bow. We learned how to do the classic 20s/30s eye with an owl esque shape, deep colours to create a heavy set look and expressive thin eye brows. In the afternoon we cracked this up a notch with more colour and a cupids bow mouth to finish of the look and a chalky (for 20s)or more dewy (for 30s) base. I made up my lovely model Carrie in deep blues that reminded me of moon scenes from silent moves.
I love the thin eyebrows and the cherry lips of the 20s- a look that I have been continuing to practice!
