A little bit of Pinup

Sometimes one just wants to give an everyday look a little spice to make things a bit more exciting than the usual stuff. So I take on the Pinup look.

I'm just gonna give a short summarization of how to achieve this look. This is based on how I put my makeup but I'm just an amateur MUA though.

For some reason this picture turned out very pink. lol

These are the items I used:

Pro Flawless Nichido Liquid Foundation
Maybelline Clear Smooth Powder Foundation
e.l.f. Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder
Etude House Eyebrow Pencil
Etude House Eyelash Curler
Maybelline Magnum Volum Express
Ever Bilena Eyeliner Pencil (better with liquid if you don't want it to smudge)
Careline White Translucent powder (highlight the eyebrows)
Urban Decay Potion Primer
Nivea Lipcare Strawberry (I like to put this on before the red lipstick)
Ever Bilena Red Lipstick

  • Start with layering on your foundation.
  • Brush on your Powder foundation, make sure all is covered.
  • Countour the jawline, temple and nose bridge (this is to make your face appear smaller)
  • Add the primer to your eyelids (so it can dry before adding anything else)
  • Add eyeliner and follow the edge of your eyelids.
  • Curl your eyelashes and add on the mascara. (x3, wait for each layer to dry before adding the others)
  • Add a nude colored eyeshadow.
  • Draw your eyebrows and fill in the spaces and brush them afterwards. Use a clear mascara to keep the strands at bay.
  • Use a lipcare like for example Nivea and then add the lipstick so your lips stay moisturized. 
Voila Pin up look! :)
