Flasher Flapper

No, this is not a moody teen's based off a real flapper
 So, I am treeeeees tired after doing my homework until five in the morning.  That being said, I have pretty bad bags under my, what covers hideous circles under the eyes? EYELINER!!! I decided to go back to the 20's and have a flapper themed makeup post.  It was super easy to do and could probably be acceptable to use in real life...maybe.I used Guerlain's Terracotta Kohl Kajal Intense Indian Kohl (a cute little thick eyeliner) for my eyes with just a tiny hint of silver from my Makeup Forever 12 Flash Colors Case.  I do not typically wear under eye liner, so it was a new thing.  I penciled in and extended my eyebrows with a deep brown 24/7 eyeliner by Urban Decay in Bourban to give it that dramatic brow look that was o' so popular in the early 20th century.
    Then, I used the ever classic MAC lipstick in MAC Red to fill in my lips, give them a lovely cupid's bow and extend my bottom lip into a bigger pout.  I dabbed some of MAC's Creme Color Base in Movie Star Red on the apple's of my cheeks (extending upwards) for a finishing touch.

Very flapperish, no? After I took off some of this and took a nap and then went to call for my college's production of The Laramie Project, my friend Tyler asked me if I had done my makeup a la flapper...I guess it still showed even after getting some needed shut-eye :)
