The roaring 20s was the age of the lip. It was the height of femininity and glamour and women were sporting bright reds and dark cherry lips without cause—everyday was the perfect day for a bold lip. For the ultimate flapper look, you need a dark lip that's mysterious and alluring. To capitalize on that "aire de mystaire," try Tom Ford Lip Color Matte in Black Dahlia.
