Pin Up Makeup Look

Hey guys! So one of my FAVORITE looks of all time is the classic pin-up makeup look. Bright red lips paired with dramatic eyes has been a timeless look that starts way back with the iconic Marilyn Monroe. Achieving this look is quite simple! The key is knowing what to emphasize, and how to emphasize – while at the same time, keeping everything looking neat and clean!

FACE:  Make sure you prep the rest of your makeup application by smoothing out any imperfections!

Eyeshadow isn’t a must, but if you wanna achieve that defined crease that the usual pin-up look features, try dark or warm colors and apply using windshield-wiper motions in the crease.
