Pinup Look Remixed

So today I did my rendition of a classic pin-up style look.  It's very easy! All you need is a matte cream color eyeshadow, matte brown eyeshadow, dark liquid liner, black mascara, and a bright pink/red lipstick! 
I started out with a base, I like to use painterly paint pot by MAC. It's a creamy neutral beige, with a matte finish. I applied this from my lash line up to my brow.  This will not only help your eyeshadow stay put longer, but it makes your eyeshadow color show up more intense and true to life. 

On top of the base I applied my Avon True Color eyeshadow in Nude from lash line to brow. Its a matte color, and as the name suggests, it's a very light beige.

The next thing I did was to take my Avon True Color eyeshado in Bark and apply it lightly to the crease. This very soft brown gives the crease just enough color to look defined, without looking heavy. I used my MAC 217 brush, but any fluffy blending brush will do.

With a steady hand and some Prestige liquid liner in Brown/Black, I lined my upper lid. I start thin in the inner corner and gradually make my line thicker towards the outer eye.  I then made a "wing" by extending that line out and up a bit from my eye. I use liquid
 liner ecause for this purpose I need a crisp line. 

A little bit of rose colored blush sets the look off. I used a generic pink eyeshadow actually, but if you have a rosey pink blush, that will do too. I also used my liquid liner to create a "beauty mark" under my eye on the top of my cheek bone just for dramatic effect! lol

Last thing to do is add some bright red or pink lipgloss, and pose like a pin-up!
