Recently, I tried for my very first time attempting a flapper makeup look.  This is something I had forever been intimidated by.  Those finger waves, reshaping my brows, and lips, well... I pretty much felt like I had to manipulate my entire face using only makeup.  So when I posted a photo of the result, I was actually very flattered when people did not think it was me.  This was exactly what I wanted to achieve.

 Unfortunately, I did not make a video of this exact look, but will soon!  However, in the photo carousel above, you can find all the products I used.  My biggest tip is not to be afraid to try a different way of applying your makeup.  I typically over-line my lips to make them look full, but instead, I followed my natural lip line and came up higher and pointier on the upper lip, and did not bring the lipstick out to the corners of my mouth. I also did not use blush, and lined my brows much thinner.  I have things I'd like to change for my future flapper makeup and hair video, so stay tuned!
