How to Do Your Makeup Like a Sexy Pinup Girl

Sexy Pinup Makeup
Pinup style can be cultivated overnight, and there's no better proof than Norma Jeane Baker's transformation into temptress Marilyn Monroe. You don't necessarily need to be more beautiful or more buxom than the next woman: it's really a matter of emphasizing a few highly desirable assets with makeup. Here's how to channel your inner pinup (hint: take your inspiration from modern day burlesque star Dita Von Teese or singer Katy Perry ).

A modern day pinup should channel the '50s by way of cat-like eye makeup, bold lips and wavy hair. A red, pillowy pout smacks of sensuality: Make bright lipstick and liner last by first applying foundation and translucent powder to bare lips, then create a rounded or pointed cupid's bow with lip liner (add definition by drawing just outside the lines with a flesh-toned concealer pencil).

Select a snow-white or gold shadow for the lid, and rim the top and bottom lashes with black liquid liner, extended a few millimeters beyond the outer corners. Add dimension with a dark shadow applied in the crease and blend well with a contouring eye shadow brush. A brow pencil a few shades darker than your natural hair will make your arches appear more defined. Brow stencils can be used to help you create symmetry. The pinup's skin has a paler, more powdery finish than the average gal and a strategically drawn faux mole under the eye lends a sexy touch. A heavier foundation will help you achieve this look and you can forgo bronzer for a pressed translucent powder.

I love the pinup look! Some can pull it off really well, while others...not so much :/ hahaha. I love the look on Dita von Teese, Evan Rachel Wood (when she doesn't cake her face with too much makeup), and Katy Perry!! This comment has been removed.
