BAFTAs Special: Get the look… Downton Abbey

Get the look… 20s make-up

Film fans will know that we’re well into awards season, with 16th February being the date of the BAFTAs. To celebrate the nominations for the excellent period drama Downton Abbey, we’ve put together a hair and make-up guide to help you get the look for the roaring 20s!

Vintage 20s flapper make-up is a simple look achieved by extending the eyebrows and creating dramatic eyes using a matt eye-shadow. In this in-depth video by BlushBeautyTutor shows us how to create this simple 20s inspired look.

Get the look… Vintage 20s

Create this soft yet dramatic 20s look using a matt black and burned plum eye-shadows and blending them well. Use a black eyeliner pencil to fill the lower lash line to give depth, then curl your eyelashes and use plenty of mascara to finish the look.


To achieve a classic 20s hairstyle, use hairpins to create dramatic waves. This technique works for both long and short hair and creates an instant vintage style.


The products

Finish your glamorous 20s look with some false eyelashes with long plumes and a Charleston headband.


Alternative looks

For a more glitzy flapper look, incorporate some shimmering gold eye-shadow and blend with a matt grey. Use a plum or red lipstick to create a warmer make-up effect.


Create a softer look with this fantastic up do by pinning soft curls in a shaped, low bun at the back of the head. At the front, pin a large curl up to create a dramatic wave and pin any loose tendrils out of the way.
