    Pearls or diamonds.

    As far as makeup goes a very natural look with a bright shade of red lipstick.

    Try to find a pair of cat-eye glasses to finish off the look!

    Wear a poodle skirt, a pair of converses, a white T-shirt, and a little scarf or piece of fabric around your neck. For makeup use red lipstick like everyone else is saying.

    they wore pearl earings and necklaces kind of like the popular beaded necklaces we wear today, scarves were also an accessorie. for make-up they wore liquid black eye liner just on the top eye lid, red lipstick is a must have, blush and mascara.

    They wore gigantic, gawdy costume jewelry which was really bright and ornamental. The make-up was bright red lipstick, eyebrow pencil, and bright eyeshadow.
