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:
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:
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.

Marilyn Monroe Makeup Ideas
If you’re dressing up as Marilyn Monroe, THE most important part of the look is her hair and makeup. Here’s some of the things you’ll need.
The hair can easily be replicated with a wig purchased at Amazon. They have them in all price ranges. To avoid disappointment, I’d personally stick with the ones that have a 4+ stars rating.
As an Avon Independent Sales Representative I couldn’t help but look to Avon for the best choices for Marilyn’s makeup. And just knowing that Avon was around back then makes it even more fun. Yes, she was famously a Chanel and Max Factor girl but who’s to say she never wore Avon?
To keep things cost effective for your costume, I’ve chosen products from the more affordable classic Avon line instead of their new higher end Korean beauty products but feel free to improvise if you like.
To do Marilyn Monroe eyes, you’ll need a good black eyeliner to recreate her winged liner look. You can also use the eyeliner to give yourself a Marilyn-esque beauty mark on your cheek. I’d recommend the Avon True Color SuperExtend Precise Liquid Pen in Black, A liquid liner pen for mess-free coverage. Provide a precise and easy application and wears for 12 hours.
Marilyn was known to cut her false eyelashes in half, using each of the halves on the outer edge of her upper lid which gave her that dreamy sleepy bedroom-eyes look that made her so irresistible. These can easily be found in any drugstore or at Amazon. If you’re not willing to go that far, use a good mascara such as Avon’s True Color SuperExtend Nourishing Mascara and then curl your lashes with a lash curler to get a similar effect.
While investigating the best Marilyn Monroe makeup looks I came across an excellent makeup tutorial that I highly recommend to you. The details and photos are amazing. It even includes contouring to recreate Marilyn’s facial features. It’s sure to help you put together the classic Marilyn makeup style that you’re dreaming of. You’ll find it by visiting: Marilyn Monroe Makeup How-To Step By Step Tutorial
Now that you’ve got everything you need for Marilyn’s makeup and hair, you get to choose which Marilyn dress up style you want to wear. She’s got so many memorable looks! Probably the white dress from, The Seven Year Itch, is the most recognizable but there’s also, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, to consider as well as many others.
Marilyn Monroe Dress Up Ideas
