By Dipakdarji Subscribe to RSS | March 30th 2012 | Views:

As a professional makeup artist, we get the question all the time: "how to do pin up makeup?" and we completely understand why as it is one of the most sexy and attractive looks to date! When it comes to how to do pin up makeup it's all about the sensuality of the woman, bringing forward her strongest features and really daring to look bold and beautiful! So let's not just check out how to do pin up makeup, but also what products we need for it :-

* Liquid foundation in the same skin tone or maximum ½ tone lighter.

* Liquid concealer with a yellow undertone in ½ tone lighter than the foundation

* Translucent loose powder (the pre + prime one from MAC is recommended)

* Eye brow shadow in deep brown and a fine/angled brush

* Shiny vanilla colored eye shadow

* Shiny Taupe (preferably with purple) colored eye shadow

* Matt dark brown eye shadow

* Liquid Eye liner

* False Eye lashes

* Matt Bronzing powder

* Pink Blusher

* Red and matt lip liner

* Red and matt lipstick (Russian red from MAC is a great one)

It may seem like many products and to be honest- when it comes to how to do pin up makeup, we do need a lot of products as the looks is so polished and flawless, and often we use more than this- but these are the bare essential you must have to pull it off. So let's check out how to do pin up makeup and learn how to become a makeup artist

Step one:-

Apply your liquid foundation after moisturizing the skin well. Apply to the entire of the face- we need maximum coverage here, but still we want a healthy looking skin!

Step two :-

Use a liquid concealer under the eyes and place it in a triangular shape from the inner eye corner, down to the nose-wing, then angled up to the outer eye corner and fill in the area. This will give a great lift to the cheeks and even out the skin tone of course. Make sure the edges are completely blended into the skin.

Step three :-

Keep the foundation and concealer in check with a loose and translucent powder that you can retouch throughout the night without even using a mirror. Area such as under eyes, around nose and chin are extra important for powder.

Step four :-

Use an eye brow shadow (deep brown with a red undertone is always good) and a fine/angled brush to apply it with. The brows should be strong, symmetrical and with a great arch- just like in the 50s. Don´t be afraid to go big and bold here!

Step five:-

Apply your shiny vanilla eye shadow to the entire eyelid- from lashes and up to the brows, and also slightly in the inner eye corner. Take the same color and use as highlight down the nose, over the cheekbone, across the forehead and right above the lip and brow.

Step five:-

The shiny taupe color is important as it appears to be brown, but the purple undertone will do wonders for your complexion and eye color. Apply it just in the crease, paying extra attention to the outer corners. Never go too far on to the eye lid (on the eye ball) as this will close the eyes. Apply slightly under the eyes in the outer corners as well.

Step six:-

Now take your matt brown eye shadow OR simply go back to your eye brow pencil and apply the same brow color along the outer edge of your lash line and in the midsection of your outer crease corner.

Step seven:-

It's time for eye liner, which is an absolute must for a pin up look! Start applying from the midsection of your lash line and work it outwards. When you only have about 3 lash hairs left before the end- angle the brush slightly upwards in the direction of your upper ear and drag it out as far as you desire.

Step eight:-

Now apply the lashes of your choice- Ardell #116 will give a natural pin up look, but you can go bigger if you want!

Step nine:-

If you like a bit of color, take your bronzer and apply it in a 3-number shape; along the hairline of your forehead, down under the cheeks and along the underside of your jaw- pull it slightly down on your neck to tighten up that area.

Step ten:-

The pink blush goes on lightly just in the apple cheeks and pull it backwards. If you want a real authentic look, go back to your liquid eyeliner and place a beauty mark on the blusher!

Step eleven:-

Use the lip liner well around the lip to mark the lines and to keep the lipstick from sliding into the skin. Fill the entire lip with the lip liner for extra lasting power.

Step twelve:-

Apply the lipstick with a lip pencil if you want it to go on smoothly and stay on longer. Never cross the lip liner edge!

So now you know how to do pin up makeup and all that is left to do is to practice and remember; have fun with bridal makeup!
