Make-up look | A 20’s inspired flapper look with Estée Lauder

Klik hier voor de Nederlandse versie.

Today I’m going back in time with a 20’s inspired flapper look, and it was actually my boyfriend who came up with the idea! A few weeks ago I received two brand new make-up products from Estée Lauder, but didn’t really know what to do with them. Or at least with one of them, because in addition to the new Estée Lauder Sumptuous Infinite Daring Length + Volume Mascara I also received the new Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick in Red Ego, a dark red berry shade. The problem is that I almost never wear dark red lipstick and that I always go for pinks and corals, so when my boyfriend saw the slightly lost look on my face, he said: ‘Why don’t you do a 20’s look with that lipstick? Didn’t they wear colors like that back then?’ Isn’t my man a genius?! Using a flapper editorial as inspiration I immediately got to work. Thanks boyfriend!

Estée Lauder Sumptuous Infinite Daring Length + Volume Mascara in Black

The name of the new Estée Lauder Sumptuous Infinite Daring Length + Volume Mascara describes exactly what this mascara claims to do: add lots of length and volume. This is the first Estée Lauder mascara with a flexible plastic brush, and this helps the mascara to nicely separate and lengthen the lashes one by one without clumping. The special polymers and ultra black fibers in the formula give you an intense dark look with visibly longer, fuller lashes.

Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick in Red Ego

The new Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick is a hydrating, long-wearing – an amazing 8 hours on me! – and intensely pigmented lipstick that gives perfect coverage in just one sweep and has a lovely satin finish. Red Ego is a dark red berry shade and is one of the 20 available colors.

In addition to the Estée Lauder Sumptuous Infinite Daring Length + Volume Mascara and the Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick I also used the following products:

- Bourjois 1 2 3 Perfect Foundation
- NARS Exhibit A blush
- Smashbox Limitless Waterproof Eyeliner in Onyx
- Smashbox Fade To Black Fade In eyeshadow palette

I still have to get used to seeing myself with such dark red lips… it just looks so strange to me! But I can definitely feel the 20’s vibe when I look at the end result, so I’m pretty pleased with how my look turned out.

What are your thoughts on the new Estée Lauder Sumptuous Infinite Daring Length + Volume Mascara and Pure Color Envy Lipstick? Do you like dark lips and the typical 20’s flapper style?

  1. Ik vind het je juist wel erg mooi staan, vooral met die smokey eye look;) Maar ik snap je wel hoor, ik kies zelf ook meestal voor roze tinten. De 20′s look is absoluut geslaagd, wat goed dat je vriend met dit idee kwam!

  2. Red looks incredible on you!!! Definitely wear it more often! Since I’ve loved the regular Sumptuous there’s a good chance I’ll try this one but the brush kinda looks like YSL doesn’t it? I’m pretty excited about those lipsticks but as you may have guessed, I’ll go for a more tame color! :)

  3. Oh my gosh, so beautiful on you!! I love this look and hope to recreate is sometime, too.
    Also, the mascara is mighty tempting. I have yet to find a mascara formula to suit my sparse Asian lashes and I’m hoping to find it in this EL one. I will have to try it in counter when I visit soon.
    Beautiful as always, gosh!

  4. c’est rare de te voir avec un rouge a levre aussi foncé ! d’habitude, quand tu fais un MU si foncé sur les yeux, tu fais des levres nudes. ça change, mais c’est pas vilain du tout !! j’aime bien, et c’est tout a fait dans le thème des années 20 !

  5. Oh my goodness Melissa, the image of you is stunning. You look absolutely gorgeous in this Flapper inspired makeup. I know it’s not an everyday look, but it sure looks good on you. Kudos to your boyfriend!

  6. Such a phenomenal succes! The lipcolour is just stunning, envy is the word. Your lashes look very defined and long. How handy such a man who comes up with these ideas.

  7. Dat is gewoon prachtig!! Een verrassende look is dit en goed idee van Tom hoor!
    Je ziet er wauw uit,kan zo in een film van de 20′S! En die lippenstift staat je echt goed!

  8. Oehh, I love it! De rode lippenstift is toch wat feller en minder donker dan ik had verwacht, maar prachtig! Je wimpers zien er ook goed uit, misschien ga ik die mascara wel eens proberen.. als ik mijn huidige 3 opmaak.. enne, leuk idee van je vriend ^^

  9. What do you have to get used to?? You look like a doll, babe! And you’re boyfriend’s good, I mean really really good. I’m sure there are women out there who wouldn’t thought of the flapper look, I know I wouldn’t.:D

  10. That’s a stunning look :) I bought one of the lighter Pure Color Envy Lipsticks but wasn’t a fan of the texture as it had a tacky feel to it, the wear time was good though.

  11. I don’t know why you think dark lips don’t suit you, this is a stricking look on you! I love those kind of colours, such a classic hold hollywood feel to it!
