FOTD : Retro/Classic/Vintage Look 1

The pinup girls of the 1950s and 1960s had unique looks of their own that still inspire many women today, including me. It is a very sleek and clean look that can be adapted to modern times. To achieve this look, the foundation has to be matte finish because the make up that they wore back was pretty flat. For the eyes, eye shadows mostly varied in muted greys and browns. Here I had black eye shadow and a tiny bit of silvery white glitter on top of eye lids. False lashes are part of this look.
Eyebrows were kept fairly natural and manicured into clean, well defined arches and accented by use of a dark brown pencil. On cheek, not much contouring, I used a coral peach blush (suit my skin most). Lastly, put on a  red lipstick of your choice. It has to be matte finish. This will give a bold statement of your look.

That completes the 1950s Retro/Classic/Vintage pin up look. Give it a try for stunning look
