The pin up are the most beautiful and sensual models of the 40s. They were portrayed with photographs and illustrations, and appeared with suggestive poses on the covers of magazines, comic-books or calendars. Her makeup style reminds us today of an elegant and seductive style. To make this type of makeup you must first take into account if this style matches your outfit. You can combine it with simple clothes, unicolor, vintage or prints. This type of makeup is ideal for parties or night celebrations, where you can show sensual red lips and cat-style eyes.

Next, we will give you the step by step to achieve pin up makeup like a professional. Do not forget that before starting to make up, it is essential to wash the skin of the face well, and moisturize; all this to take care of the skin from agents that can damage it.

After moisturizing the face, you should proceed to make the foundation. Use a liquid base to cover the skin of your face. You can choose the right base to take care of your oily or dry skin depending on the cataloging of each brand. Proceed to make the base of your eyelids, to absorb fat and prepare the eye area for the rest of the makeup. To make the base of the eyelid use vanilla powder or shade along the eyelid area.

When you finish making the base of your eyelid you will notice that your skin seems to have no depth. To avoid this, we must shade the eyelid area. Shade on the outside of the eyelid with a shadow or powder two shades higher than the base. Never start with the tear, but on its opposite side.

Use a liquid eyeliner to outline the upper eyelashes, located on the eyelid. There are many styles of cat eye. You can make a thick, long, delicate, curved or straight cat eye. Perhaps the straight is the easiest option for beginners, since you can help yourself by using a little sticky tape to mark the area you want to delineate.

Once you have finished outlining the eye you can apply rimmel, preferably the same color you used for the outline. The pin up are characterized, among other things, of having long and voluptuous eyelashes, so it was very common for them to use false eyelashes.

The cheekbones of the pin up were very, very pink, as they were a way of showing the women of the time blushing and sorry for their very sensuality. Although times have changed, and women (and men) have learned that there is no need to grieve for showing sexuality openly, a good blush never hurts. Apply a little pink color on your cheeks to give color and depth to the face.
