Pin-Up Girl Makeup Tutorial

Hello dear non-existent readers! (haha) I have decided to revive this blog of mine to share some tips and tutorials on makeup. Feelingera mode - ON! 

Victory curls, Winged eye-liner, red RED lips - three main things you see in a pin-up themed makeup.

"A pin-up girl, also known as a pin-up model, is a model whose mass-produced pictures see wide appeal as popculture. Pin-ups are intended for informal display, e.g. meant to be "pinned-up" on a wall. The term pin-up may also refer to drawings, paintings, and other illustrations done in emulation of these photos. The term was first attested to in English in 1941; however, the practice is documented back at least to the 1890s." - wikipedia (Napaka credible ng source ko.) 

Apart from the posters actually being pinned up the wall the hair of pin up girls required massive amounts of hair pins to set the curls (look up "how to pin-curls" in youtube and you'll understand how much effort it took to curl the hair back in the day!).

My first tutorial would be the iconic Pin-Up look mainly because the eyeshadow routine is pretty simple and can be wearable for everyday with a few tweeks of course

Here's my interpretation of the look and if you want to learn how to achieve this read on ;)
pak na pak!
