Makeup Trends for the Pinup Style

Posted on 6/3/2015
If you are going for a full on pinup girl look, you need more than just the right attire. Your hair and makeup will play a huge role in putting the look together. This can take some time to achieve, but the more you do it, the easier it will get. Soon, it will become like second nature to you. When putting on makeup, you have to consider all your features. You want to highlight certain areas so that they stick out more. This typically involves your eyes and lips. You will also need to make sure your eyebrows and eyelashes are also on point to really get the job done. Once you have accomplished the makeup portion, you will be ready to step out with your new pinup look. The guys will drool and the girls will be envious. Foundation The first step to achieving the pinup girl look is applying a foundation. You want to make sure you give your face a more uniformed look. If you have problematic areas like wrinkles or acne, this can be covered up with a combination of concealer and foundation. You want to be sure that you choose a foundation that matches your skin tone. Too dark or too light will only make you look silly. You will want to apply a generous amount without caking it on. Just use it like you would normally. Eyeshadow When applying eyeshadow, you want to make sure you choose the right color. Typically you would choose a neutral or shimmery light eyeshadow to apply to the lids. Make sure you put it all over from the eyelashes to the brow. In the creases, you want to apply a darker shadow and blend it in. This will help give you the darker eye look while also bringing out your beautiful eyes. Eyebrows Shaping your eyebrows can be disastrous. If possible, you want to see an expert to help you accomplish the look. If you are low on money, you can do it yourself by plucking your brows. You need to understand which shape is best for the look. Your eyebrows should have a slight curve in them with the ends going down slightly. This provides you the best look anytime but most importantly when trying to get the pinup look. It is always better to pluck them instead of waxing them. It is not only easier to accomplish symmetry, but waxing can decrease the elasticity in your eyebrows. You can also use an eyebrow pencil to help shapen them and make them a little darker. Be careful you don’t make them to dark or it just looks bad. Lipstick Every pinup girl must sport a bright red lipstick. It is one of the biggest factors in completing the look. In order to help accentuate your lips better, you also want to apply a lip liner around them. This will also help prevent any smudges. You son’t want to walk around with lipstick all over your face.
