Hi Pandas! I am so excited for this post. As promised, and stemming from my obsession of the Great Gatsby recently reignited by the new movie, I decided to bring you guys some looks based on the movie/character makeup. The first is Daisy Buchanan
I had such a fun time with this look. As we all know, Daisy Buchanan is Jay Gatsby’s love and Carey Mulligan only emphasizes her perfection.
These are the pictures that I based the look off of. Daisy’s makeup is simple but glamorous, with well-defined brows, black liner, pink/red lips, and her drawn on beauty mark.
Here are the products I used: 1: M.A.C Beauty Powder (LE/Barbie) in Pearl Blossom but any light pink blush will do.2: Too Faced Boudoir Eyes for a light and natural look.3: Physicians Formula Organic Wear FakeOut mascara (2 coats).4: L’Oreal Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner in Grey to create Daisy’s smudged-out eye.5: NYX Collection Noir Liquid Black Liner for the beauty mark.6. L’Oreal Color Riche Caress in Infinite Fuschia
The eyes are one of my favorite parts of Daisy’s look because they are simple and clean, and almost everyone has the tools for a simple black winged liner.
Make your lips the focal point of the look, and don’t let the beauty mark intimidate you. The smaller you create it, the easier it is to wear in public. Just make sure to use a very pigmented and water-resistant black liquid liner (if you want it to stand out) or pencil if you want it to look more natural.
On my nails I am wearing Julep Zora from the 20’s collection that debuted last month, which was a perfect fit for this look!
And a black and white photo with my pearl headpiece and me pretending to be from the 20’s.
I really hope you enjoyed this little look book of pictures inspired by the Great Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan. Will you try out the look?
