'The Great Gatsby' - beauty looks and how to get them

'The Great Gatsby' is about to be unleashed - for the sensational trailers, click here and here - and you can bet however the movie is received, the looks from the highly-stylised film will be talked about long after the film is no longer on the big screen. For a post on the hair looks, click here.

Think the 'roaring twenties', winged eyeliner (1920s-style), softly-hued bow-style lips, slickly-chic hair, and a whole lotta charleston dancing.

To acheive this look - with a good dash of the year 2013 - here are some key beauty buys that will pull together a modern-day Daisy Buchanan, played by actress Carey Mulligan, below.

Clarins Rouge Prodige Raspberry Sorbet RRP $38
The iconic berr-coloured cupid bow lip is a step away with Clarins Rouge Prodige lipstick in the Raspberry Sorbet shade. This lipstick delivers what women want: long-hold, intense colour, high shine and comfort on the lips. The 'High Fidelity Pearl' technology means colour and shine stay true for hours while its creamy, rich texture provides nourishing skin care benefits to lips.

Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer RRP $59
A flawless complexion and porcelain skin dominated the 'look' of the 1920s. Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer is a lightweight, buildable formula which delivers the ultimate youthful, radiant finish. It also gives broad spectrum protection with SPF 20 and a unique dewy finish.

TRESemme Ultimate Lacquer Hairspray RRP $7.99
Finger waves were the hairstyle of the decade, and flapper girls lapped it up, sporting the look with class. The TRESemme Ultimate Lacquer Hairspray can deliver finger waves that will stay perfectly in place, thanks to the lightweight, shine-enhancing formula. It has a fast drying action, which gives any style ultimate hold and gorgeous shine in seconds. The ultra fine mist is easy to brush through and won’t leave hair sticky or stiff, protecting your style against humidity, while fighting off frizz and flyaways.

Clarins Instant Liner RRP $40
Long before we became obsessed with creating the perfect winged liner, the 1920s perfectly swept eyeliner was the look to copy. The Clarins Instant Liner is utter perfection, and will allow you to create the perfect eyeliner as sported by Daisy Buchanan. This tool is an easy-to-apply liquid eyeliner that ensures a precise, long-lasting line.

Nina Ricci ‘Ricci Ricci’ Fragrance 50mL RRP $118
Nina Ricci’s famous ‘Ricci Ricci’ fragrance is as divine as you'd imagine: at the heart of the fragrance is belle de nuit, known as the 'four o’clock flower', named this way because at night the petals reflect moonlight, giving them a magical, luminous quality. This scent opens with uplifting fresh scents of bergamot and rhubarb zest, develops with floral notes of rose and tuberose and deepens with base notes of sandalwood, patchouli and belle de nuit.

Here's more of Carey's/Daisy's look. Do you like this era of beauty?
