Create a 1920's flapper/Betty Boop makeup look for Halloween

Flappers held as their core fashion mantra that they wanted to liberate themselves from the rigidity of female forms of dress, from the petticoats and corsets, opting instead for manly attire. Not only was it more comfortable, but guys' clothing created a straight up and down silhouette, making all feminine curves disappear.

While flappers dressed in a novel, sometimes masculine way, they certainly didn't wear less makeup.
