A MODERN GATSBY: Young & Beautiful

May 23, 2013Kelly Baum


“And as I sat there brooding on the old, unknown world, I though of Gatsby’s wonder when he first picked out the green light at the end of Daisy’s dock. He had come a long way to this blue lawn, and his dream must have seemed so close that he could hardly fail to grasp it. He did not know that it was already behind him, somewhere back in that vast obscurity beyond the city, where the dark field of the republic rolled on under the night”
-F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Hair-shoulder length curled with a 3/4 inch iron
Makeup-dark blue smoky eyes with a red lip, skintone blush, and matte foundation

Thanks for reading,
Kelly xoxo

    I think your natural looks suit the whole Great Gatsby theme. 🙂 But, I would’ve like this post much more if you had included some pictures in colour, to show your makeup. Maybe, softened to suit the theme or something, but still.
