tutorial: vintage pin-up makeup

A few weeks ago, I asked on Twitter what hair and makeup tutorials you guys would like to see, and I got an awesome suggestion from Susie [1] to do a Vintage Pin-Up Girl makeup look!

From that moment on, I couldn’t get this look out of my head.  In part because it’s so different from my usual makeup, and in part because because it just sounded so dramatic and fun! 

I originally thought of this as kind of a Katy Perry-inspired look, but with my new hair in loose curls, I thought it came out more like Veronica Lake [2].  I keep forgetting that I’m blonde now!  But if you’re looking for a little bit of old Hollywood glamour, this is a terrific one to try.

You could totally tone down this look a notch by eliminating the fake eyelashes, but for this video, I wanted to go all out.  Hope you guys like it!

I used: Kat Von D Tattoo liner [3], MakeUp Forever Carolyn false lashes [4], an old Sephora palette with a neutral shadow, discontinued Bobbi Brown brow kit, MAC powder blush [5], L’Oreal lip liner in Always Red [6], Neutrogena lipstick in Poppy Red [7], Bobbi Brown Crystal lip gloss [8] and MAC Mineralize Skinfinish [9] in Porcelain Pink.

The dress is so old it’s almost vintage itself — it’s ABS, and I think I got it for a formal dance my sophomore year of college!
