~ Classic Pinup Makeup ~

January 21, 2010

A classic pinup look has five main elements. A flawless base, strong brow, rosy pink cheeks, winged black liner and a bold red lip and it makes a statement of confidence without saying a word…

Tiffany was a perfect canvas for the Pinup inspired look and just as sweet in person as she looks in her photo.

Thanks to Tiffany for opting to do this fabulous look for her bridal boudoir session.


Get the look:


Ben Nye Cream Matte Foundation

Ben Nye Setting Powder ( blend of banana visage and neutral set)

Ben Nye Blush in Dusty Pink (apples only)

MAC pigment in Vanilla to tops of cheekbones for Highlight  


MAC E/S in Vanilla (over entire eye area as a base), and Cork (crease, lower lashline)

MAC Pigment in Vanilla to brow bone and inner corner

MAC Fluidline E/L  in Blacktrack on upper lashline to create a wing

MUFE champagne eyeliner on lower waterline

Andrea ModLash #53 lashes (trim off the inner 1/3) and place on outer edge of upper lashline

Curl lashes and apply one good coat of mascara to upper lashes concentrating on the outer edge

Add a small amount of mascara to lower lashes


Red lip pencil in Hot Pepper by Jordana

Red  lip color  in 514-A by Wet n Wild

Pinup Makeup really breaks the rules  as modern makeup tells us to choose one feature and go neutral on others. However, in and emphasizing every feature of the face in a bold way, this classic look still seems balanced.

The Pinup makeup  is proof that anything that looks so good never seems to go out of style.

This look can go anywhere and do anything from black tie events to holiday looks, bridal and more. Try it for yourself and see just how glamorous and feminine you feel!

    lovely look! It looks awesome on her, great job.
    I prefer kevin aucoin’s rules: there are no rules! hahaha I almost always do bold lips, no matter if I’m wearing bold or neutral eyes. Hihi

    I’m the same way- ignore most of the rules, most of the time. I even use brushes for everything other than what they were intended for;) If it works….;)

    well there’s only one rule I can think of that I must ovey ALWAYS and is that your foudation must match your skin colour LOL
    It seems obvious but I’ve seen hundreds of times darker face ligt body or the other way around.

    BTW what was the pink lipstick name? haha I’m not forgetting it hihihi

    • KristineMarie Says:

      It is Wet N Wild, “521 A” and the lipliner is by Jordana and is called “Baby Dreams.”

      Both are dirt cheap but when I saw them, I had to have them. You never know when you will need some crazy colors like that;)
