Tips to do a Classic Pin-Up Style Makeup

Those who know a little something about makeup know that the pin up makeup is all about showing off women’s feminine side. In this case the focus is on the eyes and the lips. Although it may seem complicated at first, there are some simple steps that can lead you to the desired results.

Flawless Skin

In order to achieve perfect skin you will need to use foundation and illuminating primer. For the perfect look, the foundation should be a couple of shades lighter than your skin. Don’t forget that you need a porcelain finish, so opt for the mattifying powders.

The Eyes

First of all, you will need a primer for the eyes to ensure that the makeup will be long lasting. It is best to go for a white primer which will enhance the eyeshadow that you will use. Apply the primer on the entire upper and lower eye lid.

Adding Effects

You can add depth to the eyes by using a taupe eyeshadow. The crease and the outer corner of the eye should be connected through using the same kind of eyeshadow that will lift the eye. For a clean transition you should blend the two colors using a clean brush.

The Corners

All women know that it is important for the inner corners of the eyes to be bright and for this you will need an ivory pencil. Draw a line under the line of the eyebrow with the same pencil and blend the bright color into the brow bone.


In order to achieve the perfect results, you should trace the lash line with a black eyeliner. For a more dramatic effect consider adding a flick at the end. The specialists claim that it is easy to line the eyes if you start at the outer corners. You might have to experiment a bit with the different styles and shapes until you find the one that works the best for you.

The Space between the Eyes

How long you should trace the lash line depends on the distance between the eyes. If the eyes are set close, you might want to stop at the middle. However, if the distance between the two eyes is big, you can trace all the way to the corner.

Lips and Cheeks

Contour the cheeks with powder and add peach blush. Then line the lips with a red pencil and apply red lipstick for the perfect results.
