The Great Gatsby Inspired Hair/Make Up – 1920’s In 20 Minutes

This is such a fun look and really doesn’t take too long to do! I had way too much fun making this video including doing the Charleston for far longer than I actually included in the video XD

Hope you enjoyed it!

Transcript:
Today I was a bit inspired by the remake of The Great Gatsby so I wanted to do a look suited to that. Neither my look or the looks in the movie are particularly accurate for the time period but they sure are fun!

The Great Gatsby Inspired Hair/Make Up Instructions:

Hello, today we’re going to have some fun with a look inspired by the new Great Gatsby movie!
Hey besties! Hmm, that 20’s theme party is in 20 minutes! How can I get ready in time?
I’ve got it!
A cute hat and fake finger waves!
I’m a freaking genius!
Ok, let’s get started!
Separate your fringe and curl it under using whatever method you’re comfortable with.
Part your hair in the middle and then separate a piece of hair on the side.
Brush it around so it forms a wave that finishes just above your ear, then pin it in place!
Using the same section of hair, form a second wave that finished behind your ear like this. Then pin it in place!
Repeat on the other side.
Form a wave that finishes just above your ear, then pin it in place.
My hair was already curled for this but you can do this look with straight or curly hair.
This version is a way to quickly cheat at making finger waves if you have a hat handy.
A hat can cover anything!
Once you reach the back, fold all the remaining hair up and pin it to the top of your head.
This style does work better with shorter hair.
Make sure that all your pins are above the level of your hat line.
Now smooth it all down with some hairspray. You cant have a 20’s look with fly-aways!
This looks alright but just wait until you add a hat!
BAM! Super cute! And that’s how you do super quick/easy/lazy almost finger waves.
Now you just need to top off the look with some make up.
Obviously if this was a real 1920’s look you would start from scratch but this was for a last minute costume party.
The key to 20’s eye shadow is to create a darker line around your crease.
Then a darker line around your lash line as well.
Line your waterline in black and bring some of the shadow down to soften it up a little.
You don’t want a sharp wing, you’re aiming for a rounder shape.
Use lots of mascara on your top and bottom lashes.
These looks are quite bottom lash heavy and that’s how you get that doe-eyed look that was so popular back then.
Add a darker shade of lipstick and that’s it!
Now you’re ready to look out a window pining for your lost love.
Now charleston your way all over that dance floor!
I hope you guys enjoyed the tutorial. Check the link in the description for more photos and other tutorials!

My Week In Vlogs May Week 3

Another week had already gone by *_* Eeep it’s almost my birthday already?! Time is flying this month. I’ve spent most of this week filming like crazy so I can be ahead with videos and have more time to do longer tutorials like the Sew Fun series. Exciting!

So here is the week in vlogs!

Speed Painting Fables In Fashion

I started a speed painting series of people who inspire me last year but I didn’t have the materials or the time to keep it up. I’m starting fresh this year and redoing my first subject: FablesInFashion!

This time I forced Celina to watch me doing it so I could film her reactions > : D

Hope you enjoy it and let me know if you have any suggestions on who I should do next!

Fables In Fashion Watercolour Speed Painting

I started this series last year but it kind of fizzled as I didn’t have as much time to paint or the right supplies. I really love the idea though so I have decided to start it again with my awesome collaborator Fables in Fashion!

Violet- Hi everyone!
Hope you guys are having a good night. we’re doing something a little bit different tonight.
I started this last year where I’m doing a series of speed paintings of people that really inspire me as a way of saying thank you so much for all of your inspiration and just generally being awesome!
I got a little bit side tracked when I started this last year so I wanted to start it again.
So we’re kicking it off with Celina from Fables in Fashion! Celina is a fantastic partner in crime for shooting videos, holding lighting and….
James- Hurry up, my arms are getting tired!
Violet- Shut up James backdrops don’t talk.
James- You’re a jerk! Backdrops have feelings!
Violet: Anyway I did a quick speed painting of Celina from Fables In Fashion, from one of her recent videos.
Make sure you check out her channel, it’s Fables In Fashion and it’s fantastic. Hope you guys enjoy the video and we’ll be doing more of these soon. Hair tutorial coming next week bye!
Let’s watch their reactions.
Celina- Hey Violet
Tobias- Hello
Celina- This is so awkward, lets just watch the video. Ok I’m playing it now.
Celina- I look like I have cat eyes.
Tobias- Floaty cape
Celina- Oh like a super hero
Celina- Nah
Celina- I feel like she’s making me look a lot more elegant than I look in real life. Haha
Tobias- She’s just going off some of the fashionable photos we took
Celina- I wish i could draw
Tobias- Oh no youtube just froze
Celina- Oh there it goes again
Tobias- That’s a bit better
Tobias- Purple for you
Celina- That’s really cool, I wouldn’t be able to pick out all of these undertones and stuff, I would just be like: it’s all black
Tobias- Shading’s cool of the cape and the floating.
Celina- It is cool.
Celina- I have eyes
Tobias- Eye balls but no iris yet
Celina- That’s me!
Celina- That’s photo me and that’s drawing me
Tobias- I don’t know, I think she’s adding colour just very very gently
Celina- Oh yeah it’s really subtle
Tobias- Skin tones
