DIY 1920s Flapper Makeup and Costume Guide

Glamour Girl Costumes for Halloween and More!

This DIY 1920s Flapper Makeup and Costume Guide is second in our Glamour Girl Costumes for Halloween and more! series.

Halloween is the perfect time to get your glam on but you can also use this DIY Flapper girl dress up guide for other occasions such as a 1920’s theme wedding, birthday, or maybe even a New Year’s Eve party. (Wouldn’t it be nice to do over the one from last year?) I hope you find the following dress up and makeup information helpful and have a joyous event while wearing it.

How To Do 1920s Flapper Makeup

Thin brows, dark dusky eyelids and bright red cupid’s bow-shaped lips is all you need to pull off the look of a glamorous 1920s Flapper girl. Don’t worry, you don’t need to pluck or have surgery to accomplish this.

A little concealer applied in the right places goes a long way towards altering the look of your brows and lips. Use concealer on you lips and eyebrows first. Blend it in. Then draw on your new thinner brows and bow-shaped lips.

Avon has everything you need to easily pull off the 1920’s Makeup look:

How to Get 1920s Flapper Style Hair

Flappers in the Twenties were famous for their pin straight Bobbed haircuts or their perfectly shaped Finger Waves. If you aren’t willing to spend the time doing Finger Waves, and you don’t want to cut your hair into a bob, you can easily get the look of 1920’s Flapper hair using a wig. Amazon has several different styles in several colors and in every price range to bring your coif back to the Roaring Twenties.

Here’s a couple wigs to give you an idea of what’s available:


1920s Flapper Style Headband

Honestly, probably more important than the hair style is the headband worn by the most glamorous 1920s Flapper Girls. And again, Amazon to the rescue!

They have tons of different styles to choose from such as this feather and Rhinestone one shown here!

How to Dress Like a 1920s Flapper

While searching for the perfect Gatsby-esque dress for a sexy 20’s Flapper, I came across these stunning outfit sets at Amazon. How exciting! You get a gorgeous dress along with all of the necessary accessories that go with it… including the jewelry and some even come with the stockings! How cool is that? Click on your favorite to learn more, or to purchase it at Amazon.


With all of that collected all you need now is the shoes! I found some super cute and affordable 1920’s style shoes at Amazon too! The style worn back then was a Mary Jane with a short heel. I’d guess this made them more comfortable for dancing the Charleston.

I don’t know about you but I love the style so much, I’d wear these even without the costume dress.
