1920s Inspired Beauty Looks For S/S 2021

So, will this spring and summer give a sense of freedom after a year of long distance life? Who knows! But one thing is sure; glam has to return! And what a better way to dust of the lockdown life than a new makeup wardrobe straight from the glittering 1920s. My favorite fashion era with endless parties and outfits none of us dare to dream of has never seemed so invigorating, so exciting and so fitting for lifting our poor looks up from the sweatpant horror land.


Super smoky eyes, bright glitters, thrilling colors, pearly sheens, sculptural brows and most of all lipstick are in the centre of the reawakened makeup desires. Basically, sometimes more is more and, especially, when it comes to the 20s, the last century or now, looks have to bare as well as conceal it all: our sorrows, happiness, desperations, losts, hopes, relief, trust, dreams, dark circles and the ever apparent yearning to live.


Needless to say that celebrating life is also about what you wear as it is what you do. Perhaps the 20s will prove that once again.



PARTY BRUISE



A smoky eye with a hint of glitter is often the most dashing of looks. And when colored in redish purple and pared with a matching heart shaped lip you'll find a shade of bruise is surprisingly flattering and utterly glamorous.

From time to time, taking the edge of by going wild and portraying all of the unexpected is a release like no other. No need to be beautiful. The more shocking the better. Therefore, a controlled explosion of colors, doll-like bud lips and thin carefully drawn brows perform just the right amount of madness.

STAR LUSTER


When midnight sky and shimmering milky way of stars are recreated in makeup the finish is always smoky and mysterious. These occasions call for a downward facing liner as well as a soft vail of blue glitter pared with a rosy blush as if you were really blushing from a climb to the moon where you picked a piece of sky to your handbag.

CHERRY KISSES


"A kiss sweet as cherry may make your night merry", however, never count on it. Often it is much better to stick with a cherry red rouge which can turn itself into a thrilling blush too. Lastly, adding a fabulous mole on top of your lip will crown any lipstick application.
