How to Get a Retro Pin-Up Makeup Look

Find Out How to Get This Retro Makeup Look

Here's an excerpt of a retro-inspired makeup look from OnSugar blog The Make-Up Blogette:

Every year, I am in charge of organizing my office dinner and dance, and this year, my team and I decided to do a retro-themed event. And it's really happening, because for the first time, I can really see most people putting in the effort to dress to the theme. My whole team and I went all out, of course, and we turned up from the various decades past.

I went for a classic winged liner with red lips look, rather than the retro-mod style of Edie Sedgwick/Twiggy-type of big eyes/pale lips combo — simply because of my rad outfit. No time to set my hair, because we had to be there early running about and setting up the venue. To find out what makeup she used, just keep reading..

Here is the makeup breakdown:

  • Foundation: Lancôme Teint Miracle, MUFE HD Powder
  • Cheeks: MAC Sculpt and Shape, NARS Mata Hari
  • Eyes: NARS Abyssinia, NARS Sophia, L'Oréal Super Liner, Lashes from Sasa (don't know brand)
  • Lips: Chanel Rouge Allure Lacque Dragon, MAC Russian Red

Very nice dress! Were you able to sit down on a chair? Not to mention job well done to get a company to dress to the theme. :) Did you have a budget for them to get the costumes? Which event co. and hotel did you use? Need it for my reference. Thanks!
