“The inspiration for today is a strong lady in the 1920s,” said James Boehmer, director of global artistry for Nars. “Similar to Lady Mary from Downton Abbey.” The eyebrows were the focus of Tuesday’s look. Using Brow Perfector Pencil, Eyeshadow in Coconut Grove and Brow Gel, Boehmer created a thick, defined brow. To showcase the eyes, he smudged Duo Eyeshadow in Pandora on the bottom. Next, Boehmer used Duo Eyeshadow in Alhambra to highlight the corner of the eyes and center of the lips. To finish, he topped off the cheeks with a bit of Blush in Zen, and applied Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara to the lashes.

“The look is centered around finger waves,” said Rolando Beauchamp, head stylist for Bumble and bumble. To achieve the 1920s-inspired style, Beauchamp used Bb Prep and a healthy amount of Bb Gel for a sleek finish. He completed it by deeply parting hair to the side and created finger waves around the face. The hair was then tied into a low ponytail, braided and secured into a bun.

“Today we went for a vampy red nail that we are calling ‘Devil’s Red,’” said Michelle Saunders, for Essie. To achieve the custom color, Saunders started with a coat of Licorice and then layered the nail with a coat of Bardot. “The color really complements the entire collection’s 1920’s embellished feeling,” said Saunders.
