Hey everyone, today I’m back with a modern pin up inspired look.
Today I found a spare hour to sit down and put together this look, I knew I wanted to do something clean and fun and I think this modern pin up inspired look is really pretty.
Nyx Eyeshadow primer
Chi Chi bronzes palette
Maybeline Gel liner
Napoleon Glitter liner
120 Ardell lashes
L’oreal True Match Foundation
Generic Concealer palette
Elf high definition powder
Rimmel Stay Matte powder
Generic red blush
Mac Mineralize skin finish in Lightscapade
Nyx brow pencil in brown
Maybelline color tattoo in Taugh as taupe
Essence red lip liner
Nyx round lipstick in true red
I started out by patting the nyx eyeshshadow primer on my lid as always, followed by a beige eyeshadow from my Models prefer palette. Using a dense flat eyeshadow brush I packed the product all over my eyelid, followed by the lightest champagne shade from my Chi Chi bronzes palette on my brow bone. Once I’d blended that together so it was seamless I placed a very light brown shade through my crease. You want this to look like your eyelid, but better. The main focus is the liner and lips.
I then used the gel black liner to make a cat eye liner followed then by the silver Napoleon glitter liner, following the black liner. I then put on my lashes and perfected my skin.
Using my L’oreal true match as usual I buffed that into my skin, and then contoured and highlighted using the dark brown and pale yellow shade in my generic concealer palette, using a damp beauty blender to blend that all together. I then filled in my brows as usual while my foundation sunk in.
I set my under eye concealer using the elf HD powder and the rest of my face with Rimmel stay matte powder. I then bronzed my face and added a light flush to my cheeks with a small amount of red/pink blush.
I finished off this pin up inspired look with of course cherry red lips, using the lip liner first to make sure the lipstick doesn’t feather.
A black cat eye and red lip is such a timeless look, and I think the added glitter makes it modern and fun.
