There are two looks I absolutely LOVE doing on myself and other people. One is the Smokey Eye, which I’ll discuss in another post, and the other is the Pin Up Girl.
The Pin Up Girl is all about flawless skin, black eyeliner, full lashes and of course, red lips. This is a classic look and a lot of people can pull it off. I won’t lie–it helps to be wearing the right outfit and hairstyle if you want to rock this look. This is a specific makeup look from a particular era, so you’ve got to follow through with the whole look, or at least look polished.
Here are the products I most often use for the Pin Up Girl look:
Laura Mercier Foundation Primer
Make Up For Ever Camouflage Cream in Green 17 to cancel out any redness (if needed)
Make Up For Ever HD Foundation
MAC Select Pro Longwear Concealer
Make Up For Ever HD Finish powder, buffed all over the face with a buffing brush
Benefit Hoola to contour
MAC Pink Swoon blush on apples of cheeks
Appropriate color brow powder to fill in brows (a must for this look!)
MAC Paint Pot in Painterly as eyeshadow base
On the lids, MAC Blanc Type eyeshadow
In the crease, MAC eyeshadow in Wedge. I also apply a thin line of it at the lower lashline.
MAC Fascinating Eye Kohl (white liner) in the bottom waterline
MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack gel liner to create the perfect winged liner
Dior Diorshow mascara, concentrated outer corner of top lashes
Ardell false lashes, usually flares, on outer two thirds of top lashes
L’Oreal Colour Riche Lipliner in Always Red to line and line fill in lips
MAC Russian Red, Ruby Woo or NARS Jungle Red lipstick
I often draw in a mole with a dark brown or black eye pencil
I’ve included a picture of Pin Up Girl look I did for a photoshoot.
Hope this post was helpful!
Have a beautiful day 🙂
