Modern Pin Up Makeup Tutorial

Hey loves! So I wanted to go for a classic pin up makeup look but then I decided to add a modern twist to it 🙂 I hope you like it ♡

If you’d like to see how I got this look then you can watch the YouTube video or keep reading this post:) xo

Okay so in terms of eyeshadow I didn’t do much – I just applied a beige eyeshadow similar to my skin tone (or maybe like 1-2 shades lighter). That went all over the lid, in the crease and on the browbone as well. In my crease I applied a brown eyeshadow just in order to get some definition. I blended it out really well as I didn’t want it to be obvious that I have eyeshadow in there (pretty hard to do, the eyeshadow had a little bit of shimmer in it lol). And I smudged that brown eyeshadow on my lower lash line too.

Then I lined my eyes – this was the tricky part. Line your eyes and fill in the inner half (like you would normally do). Then only draw the shape of a wing but do not fill it in! Well, you can fill it in but the color that you want to apply next won’t pop up as much. In order to line my eyes, I used a gel eyeliner from Music Flower
So you have the shape of your wing.. take a white eyeliner and fill that area in. You can skip this step, but I figured that it would help the eyeshadow pop even more. I didn’t blend out that white, I just went ahead and applied a turqois-y/light blue eyeshadow right on top. Of course, you can go for any color of your preference, but I suggest choosing something bright.
Then I went back over the shape of the wing with a little bit of black eyeshadow just to make sure that it wasn’t covered by the blue.
I applied mascara and falses (again, totally optional) and I was good to go! 🙂 Actually not yet, no pin up look, no matter if it’s classic or modern, is complete without a red lip. I didn’t choose an exact red lipstick for this makeup though, I felt like going for a coraly-red one instead. And I topped that with a red lip gloss.

And that’s it 🙂
