If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter (P.S. and you can now follow me on Instagram @helenmaegreen), you've likely seen a few photos starting to trickle through from my last photoshoot with the talented team Jac Williams from Tip Top Hair Design and photographer Steve Bond. For this shoot we focussed on looks from four separate decades beginning with a decadent 1920s style. We opted for two outfits with slightly different hairstyles - Jac was very inspired by Peaky Blinders which she loves but which I've never got around to watching. It did kick off my recent interest in 1920s styles though, and I've been really enjoying rocking a more wearable version of this look over the last weeks even if the amount of 20s-style clothing in my wardrobe is limited.
Ooh, and before I forget - I'm wearing almost all Bésame Cosmetics in these photos - Soufflé Foundation in True Beige, Brightening Violet Powder, Merlot Lipstick (1933) and Brown Cake Mascara (1932) on my eyebrows.
As I mentioned previously, I had to try really hard not to smile during this photoshoot because of the doll lips I'd painted on for the flapper look. I actually found it really hard not to smile at all (apart from a couple of giggling fits where I had to take a break to try and regain a straight face) but I think the shape of the lips really tops off the look nicely.
We also had a play around with this fun new background that really gave an interesting edge to the pictures.
I hope you enjoyed these images. If you have a favourite, don't forget to let me know in the comments which image it is, and don't forget to check back soon for another post in this series where we will be taking a hop, skip and jump forward to a sultry 1940s look.
