Retro Pin Up Girl

We love the retro pin-up girl look and think it’s the sexy/sweet solution for a last minute fancy dress idea for Halloween.  With the right outfit you can say you’re going as Dita Von Teese (watch out for our exclusive interview with her!) or Katy Perry.

For the makeup, start by applying your foundation and powder, making sure your products have a matte finish like this one by MAC which combines the two.  Then brush a pink blush (like this one in Spring Flower) to the apples of your cheeks.

For the eyes, apply a vanilla coloured eye shadow from your brows to your lash line.  Then use a neutral coloured shadow (like this one by Rimmel in Taupe) and apply it in the crease of your eye lid.  Use this same colour to lightly line the lower lash line.  Colour in your eye brows with a dark gray/brown shadow (similiar to Label Whore by Too Faced) and an angled shadow brush.  Use a black gel or liquid liner to create a thin line along your lash line and wing it out at the ends (Mac Black Track is the one that we’ve learnt Dita SWEARS by for her cat-eye look).  Apply mascara, we love Glam Eyes, or false lashes (either to just the outer corners of your eyes or a whole strip).

Use a red lipstick to complete the look—like a cherry red shade.  First outline your lips with a red lip liner (like this one in Redd) and then use a lip brush to blend the colour into the mouth.  Finish by applying the red lipstick (like Rimmel’s Signature Red) over the pencil.

The hair might take a couple tries before getting it right, you may want to practice.  Watch the video below to find out how to get the look.
