During the early twenties cream or ivory colored face powder was used by most women. Later in the middle of the twenties a powder corresponding to the nature hue of skin – perhaps a nuance brighter – came in fashion.
For rouge the colors rose, raspberry, and around 1925 also orange were popular.
From the middle of the twenties on lips were colored in deep red, deep brownish reds, plum and orange. The shades changed later at the end of the twenties. Colors like rose, raspberry and medium red were new trend.
Lipstick was applied as a “Cupid’s-Bow” (Armor’s Bow) to the upper lip. Also the lower lip was exaggerated a bit and the width of the lips de-emphasized a little.
Usually eyes were held quite dark. To get this effect the whole eye was edged with a black eyeliner and then the margins blured easily. The eyelid shadow was often painted in dark gray. Besides gray, colors like turquoise and green were also in fashion. To further emphasis of eyes eyelashes were also painted black.
Very popular were thin, black and downward sloping eyebows which were inked with a black or brown eyeliner.
The fingernails were painted only in the nail center. The half-moon and nail tip were left bare and white.

Women may dig Adam Levine’s tousled bedhead, but that doesn’t mean you should try and pull it off. “Many men pick hairstyles that look good on guys on TV and in magazines,” says Craig the Barber, CEO of the Grooming Concierge. “But those styles were designed specifically for those men and don’t necessarily work for everyone.” Below are a few things you might want to consider before going for your next cut.
Oval: Symmetrical, with eyes evenly spaced and one eye-width distance between them. They can pull off any haircut, because the eyes, nose, and mouth are well proportioned.
Round: A full and round jaw line and in many cases, a round hairline. Styles with height will help lengthen the face.
Pear: Narrow forehead, broad jaw line. Opt for a “round” haircut with the sides equal to the top, which will help balance the face.
Triangular: Wide hairline, broad jaw line, and narrow chin. Keep your hair short so the top of your head isn’t the focal point.
Square: If your cheekbones, forehead, and jaw are the same width, you can pull off most hairstyles – except for flattops, which will make your face look even squarer.
Finger waves and pin curls work well with all lengths of hair. In fact, if you have long hair, these looks can actually make your hair appear shorter depending on the way they are styled and put up. Pin curls refer to the actual curls that are secured with bobby pins and the finger waves are what they look like when they are let out. Finger waves look different on different people, depending on hair type and the length of time you brush it out. Try some of these styles to enhance your look.
