From Fashion to Faces: Erickson Beamon

The two lovely ladies behind Erickson Beamon, a jewelry line on the verge of their 30th birthday, truly outdid themselves this Thursday night. They created a clothing capsule collection to go along with their decadent and Swarovski-encrusted jewelry that was very obviously meant to bring you back to the speakeasy and jazz clubs of the roaring 20’s. Little lingerie-inspired slips, silky rompers and beaded frocks in onyx, wine and deep teal were displayed for the presentation with flappers dancing about as viewers sipped on cocktails. The 20’s were a time of style revolution when women started to dress for themselves and embrace makeup, so today we are going to create a modern flapper look!

Step One: Face

The ladies of the roaring 20’s loved a creamy complexion. Apply your foundation as you normally would, then use powder and your Royal & Langnickel Kabuki brush to buff on a perfect complexion. Make sure to pay close attention when applying foundation to your eyelids and around your lips, it’ll come in handy in the next steps!

Step Two: Eyes

Start with an eyeshadow with a slight metallic sheen. Gold or grey hues are the most reminiscent of the 20’s, but you can use any shade that flatters your complexion. Try Benefit’s Creaseless Creme Shadow in Soot or Busy Signal. Next, rim your eyes with a dark kohl liner, one that can be easily smudged. I use Rimmel’s Kohl Pencil because I think it has great staying power. Then use a Royal & Langnickel Smudge Brush to blur the lines slightly and blend into the shadow. You can go as light or as dark with this look, depending on the time of day you are dressing for!

Step Three: Lips

Rouged lips are the signature 20’s makeup look. Girls would create a Cupid’s Bow by not using the rouge all the way to the edge of their lips. If you’re going for dramatic, use a combo of your foundation and concealer to neutralize the corners of your mouth, and then just apply lipstick to the center. A really good lip brush will be needed for this, so grab the SILK BC656 which has a stiff pointed tip, to apply the color. For a more modern take, apply lipstick as your normally would. If you’re feeling adventurous, try a deep wine color instead of the traditional red!
