When you think '20s, you think of everything fab and glamorous like The Great Gatsby, sparkling dresses, and layers and layers of beaded necklaces hanging around their necks. The girls back then were a lot like the girls of today's time—bold! So bring out your pins and brooches, your sparkliest dresses, and read on to find out what '20s beauty trends you need to rock for a flipping beauty face.

Bob + Finger Waves

The '20s It girls all had one thing in common, they all used to rock the bob and finger waves combo all the time. It may be a vintage hairstyle, but it still looks chic and super elegant even in today’s time. Turn this oldie hairstyle into a newbie by rocking bigger and looser waves on your lob for a voluminous 'do.

Vampy Lips

Nowadays lipsticks are available everywhere in all forms from bullets to liquid lippies, and even lip crayons! In the '20s lipsticks were just starting to be made available to the delight of the twenties women. If pale nudes are all the rage these days, '20s women loved to color their lips in vampy hues like red. Paint your lips in a deep purple shade for a modern beauty look.

Rimmed Eyes

One thing that we love about the '20s women is that they aren’t afraid to go big and bold, and the same goes with their eye makeup. Use your trusted eye liner for a cool and edgy dark rimmed eyes. You can flick your liner to create a winged effect to make your look more current.

Natural Look

While the '20s gal isn't afraid to go big with their eyes and lips, they choose to scrimp on the foundation and concealer partially because those makeup goodies weren't invented yet during their time. Choose a feature to highlight, and keep the rest of your look simple, and natural to channel a '20s gal effortlessly.

Half Moon Nails

The '20s girl loved to leave the cuticles or the tips of their nails bare when doing their nails. Instead of leaving the tips bare, opt for a half moon nail design. Add elements to it by drawing shapes, or lines for a fun nail art.

When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
