It’s Fraulein Frauke tonight and I’m finishing my dress and thinking of makeup. The theme is a mix of The Belle Époque and the Roaring Twenties and though my dress is Belle Époque I will shamelessly borrow the makeup from the early 20’s with very dark eyes, drooping eyebrows and a small dark mouth. It’s very far from my usual makeup, so it will be fun to play. After digging around I found a few pictures that I think are excellent inspiration.
Pina Menichelli, an Italian actress. I love her eyes!
This is supposedly Louise Brooks, but I'm not quite sure. Good view on the eye-shadow, though.
Clara Bow, the ultimate It-girl.
I also found this modern interpretation that I quite like, found here.
