The Great Gatsby has been my favorite book since Mr. Kennedy's 9th Grade Honors English class. When I met Daisy Buchanan, I instantly found her intriguing — she's stunning, charming, complicated. I've been on Gatsby watch since plans for the movie were announced and what I'm most looking forward to is seeing Carey Mulligan (one of my beauty icons, naturally), portray Ms. Buchanan on the big screen. Mulligan oozes the glamour of the '20s with her cropped 'do and dark lips — all of which I cannot wait to copy.
So, while we wait in anxious anticipation to see the magic and drama of Gatsby's world unfold, I'm recreating some of my favorite beauty looks of the times: blunt bobs, blood-red nails, and pronounced cupid bows. If you're as Gatsby-obsessed as I am, join me in my nerd fandom and recreate a few of these timeless Roaring '20s looks.
