Pin Up Makeup Look

Hello, my beautiful readers! Today I want to share with you this classic makeup look that I created a while ago. Unfortunately I don't have a pictorial of the process of creation, but I'll describe the steps for you, so you can recreate it by yourself. This makeup look is called differently: pin up look, rockabilly, Merilyn Monroe's look and etc. However, for me this will always be a classic winged liner and perfect red lip combination.  Let's get started!


1. Make sure that your brows are filled in accurately and tweezed/groomed nicely. 
2. Once the eyelids are primed, apply matte white shade all over the lid.
3.  Now using small pencil brush apply matte dark brown shade on the crease line. 
4. Using lighter brown shade, blend the dark brown crease line upwards, towards the browbone area. 
5. Highlight the brow bone area, apply white eyeliner on the waterline and draw a cat eye winged liner on the lash line using liquid liner. 
6. Apply mascara and false lashes, if you desire.
That's it! Elegant and classic winged eyeliner look that is perfect for any occasion is done! Hope you enjoy recreating it!
