Throw a roaring 20's speakeasy themed party

So for New Year's this year my friends and I got together and threw a Roaring Twenties speakeasy themed party at my friend's bar. So we're like hey you guys don't normally do anything, can we throw a party and so that's what we did!

In this video I'm going to show all the different DIYs that we put together for the party, things that we used to like decorate the tables and all that kind of stuff.

Spray painted bottles

So the first DIY are these bottles that we use for the centerpiece for all the tables. I saved up a bunch of wine bottles, doesn't matter the shape or anything like that, actually different shapes kind of made it more fun!

Our color scheme was black white and gold so I spray-painted all the bottles black and then I also did a bunch of feathers.

I was originally looking for black feathers but couldn't find them, so spray-painting them was my second option. I actually ended up liking them better though because once they were painted and dry you could still see some of the color underneath when you twisted the feathers.

So for each table I placed a bottle with a feather inside and either white or gold beads wrapped around the neck of the bottle.

1) Gold spray painted bottles with necklaces

Gatsby 1920s Flapper Girl makeup tutorial

I think I was born in the wrong era but with a little help from my friend called make up I can transform myself into the ultimate flapper girl!

Let's start off with foundation to help even out your skin with the stippling brush sponge or your clean fingers apply your foundation on your face. I prefer to apply my foundation first around the center of my face because I need a little more coverage here then the rest of my face.
