Great Gatsby Look Book: Jordan Baker

Hi Pandas! Welcome to the second installment of my Great Gatsby makeup looks, where I am taking looks from the 2013 film based off the book, and making them just a little bit easier to wear.
This post centers on the lively Jordan Baker
While Daisy's look is a classic spin on something natural, Jordan had the darkest eye makeup in the movie, which was fun to play around with.
Her look is mostly metallic smoky eyes, some blush, and a berry lip. Simple, but pretty.
Altogether, this look took me under 10 minutes, and keep in mind that I don't have her gorgeous 20's bob, but the makeup can look equally awesome on anyone.
The Products:
1. The eye look was made entirely with the Khroma Beauty Kim's Kardazzle Palette. I used the black matte shade, the metallic silver, and the metallic white, blended together.
2. To add some color to my cheeks, I brushed on a very light layer of Milani Baked Blush in Red Vino.
3. Jordan's lashes are so fluttery, so I added some falsies. Katy Perry Lashes by Eyelure in Darling were perfect!
4. For the berry lips, I swiped on Tarte Lipsurgence in Pouty, a sparkling raspberry.
This look can easily be created with your own products, and falsies are optional if you do not have the time nor patience!
Here are two close ups of the eyes. You can blend the smoky eye in whatever way you want, but I chose a wash of metallic color and a little crease definition. I would also suggest liner, even though I have none on.
I think this is a perfect easy-going night out look. Just use your favorite foundation under it all and you are good to go! A grey smoky eye and a berry lip are also easier to pull off than harsh black and a red lip.
 And of course, the black and white, trying to be from the 20's picture!
I hope you liked this look! Stay tuned for the last of the series!

  1. Very pretty! I love that lippy on you and I adore metallic eyeshadows ♥

    1. Thanks Liesl! I love that lippy as well, an oldie but a goodie.

  2. Your eyes look awesome! :)I like the whole look a lot but I reckon I would look horrible with grey eyeshadows on my eye lids :/ :D

    1. Thanks Ann! That is so sweet of you! I am sure you would look beautiful with grey shadow though!

  3. Those lashes make your eyes look so BIG, waw! :-)

    1. Haha, and they are already big to begin with, but thank you :))

  4. Nice! I did love her makeup... and you did an excellent reinterpretation, as usual. :) Grey's a favourite of mine.

    1. Thank you so much!! I love grey as well!
