1920s Makeup Tutorial || Kandee Johnson

Matching a makeup look to an art deco wedding means different things to different people. You might go for a 30s look (finger waves and all), or create a more general noir, old-school or vintage look with some 1940s styles. Or perhaps you’re taking overall design elements from art deco, but your heart is with the long hair and romance of a Gibson Girl and Art Nouveau. But if you’re going with a pure 1920s wedding theme, nothing beats the classic flapper style.

There are loads of YouTube makeup tutorials for achieving a flapper look, ranging from fantastic to frightful, but this one from Kandee Johnson is a fave. She looks gorgeous, she doesn’t use ten million products (or products that cost ten million dollars) and she’s fun to watch.

Of course, the dark-eyed flapper look might be a bit too much for some brides on the actual day (though not all!), but the cupid’s bow lips are perfect anytime. This would also be a great look for a 20s themed engagement or bachelorette party!

Here are a few of the Urban Decay products she uses in her tutorial (via Sephora):
