Great Gatsby Look Book: Daisy Buchanan

Hi Pandas! I am so excited for this post. As promised, and stemming from my obsession of the Great Gatsby recently reignited by the new movie, I decided to bring you guys some looks based on the movie/character makeup.
The first is Daisy Buchanan
I had such a fun time with this look. As we all know, Daisy Buchanan is Jay Gatsby's love and Carey Mulligan only emphasizes her perfection.
These are the pictures that I based the look off of. Daisy's makeup is simple but glamorous, with well-defined brows, black liner, pink/red lips, and her drawn on beauty mark.
Here are the products I used:
1: M.A.C Beauty Powder (LE/Barbie) in Pearl Blossom but any light pink blush will do.
2: Too Faced Boudoir Eyes for a light and natural look.
3: Physicians Formula Organic Wear FakeOut mascara (2 coats).
4: L'Oreal Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner in Grey to create Daisy's smudged-out eye.
5: NYX Collection Noir Liquid Black Liner for the beauty mark.
6. L'Oreal Color Riche Caress in Infinite Fuschia
The eyes are one of my favorite parts of Daisy's look because they are simple and clean, and almost everyone has the tools for a simple black winged liner.
Make your lips the focal point of the look, and don't let the beauty mark intimidate you. The smaller you create it, the easier it is to wear in public. Just make sure to use a very pigmented and water-resistant black liquid liner (if you want it to stand out) or pencil if you want it to look more natural.
On my nails I am wearing Julep Zora from the 20's collection that debuted last month, which was a perfect fit for this look!
And a black and white photo with my pearl headpiece and me pretending to be from the 20's.
I really hope you enjoyed this little look book of pictures inspired by the Great Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan. Will you try out the look?

  1. I love your look! I have some of the tools necessary to recreate, but I'm not quite so adroit with the black liquid liner. Plus, my nails are bright teal right now. I'm SO TERRIBLY BUMMED that I missed out on the May Maven box. D:

    1. It was one of their best boxes tbh, so much so that I am skipping out on this months, I don't think anything can compare. But thank you, I am glad you like it, and I checked out your teal nows. Fab!

  2. LOVE it!! You did an awesome job Margo! That lippie is so pretty on you!

    1. Aww thanks Tracy!!! Glad you liked it!

  3. A very pretty recreation and the beauty mark looks gorgeous on you also!

    1. Thank you Tina that is so sweet! And yeah, I am kinda digging the beauty mark as well!


Thanks for taking the time to comment! I appreciate it!
