“Classic retro pin up make-up is ever present today even if it’s a more modern version. This make-up consists of a matte, even-toned face, pink blush, black eyeliner, black mascara or false eyelashes and glossy red lipstick.

It works on any skin color or type and pin up make-up can easily be replicated too! There’s something undeniably glamourous, flirtatious and fun about vintage pin-up girls, like Lana del Rey for example. Think big doe-eyes framed with dramatic winged liner and sultry red lips. HOT!

Retro looks are some of my favorite to recreate as they are just so glamorous and feminine. When I make my make-up looks, most of the time, I feel like a little girl playing dress up!

As a huge fan of the cat eye look and a bold lip, this is a make-up look that I really like to wear and now I’m going to show you step by step how to recreate this look yourself.┬áCheck out my Shopcade list here to see and shop the products I used to create the look!” Looking for more retro inspiration?
