At our parade this past weekend, I dressed up as a pin up sailor girl! I'm really happy about how my makeup came out, so I thought I'd share with you how to achieve the look!

Start by priming your face and using foundation or whatever your usual routine is.

For the eyes:

  1. I started with using a dark brown color for my crease (the area of your lid that when you open your eyes, well, creases!).
  2. Then, I used a pearly pale pink for my entire lid.
  3. With black liquid liner, I lined my lid and winged it out for a more dramatic look.
  4. Next, I curled my lashes and applied 2 coats of mascara. You really want your eyes to "pop"! You can also use false lashes.
  5. As for lining the lower lash area, I lined my water line (the area right above your lower lashes) with a nude eyeliner to give my eyes a more wide awake look.
  6. Lastly, I applied one coat of mascara to my bottom lashes.

To finish the look:

Add some pink blush to cheeks and add a highlight (a little shimmer) to cheek bones. I also added a fake beauty mark below my right eye!

Last but certainly not least...red lipstick! This step is a must!

I hope this tutorial will be helpful to anyone trying to achieve this look! If you would like a video version I'd be happy to do so. Also, if you want to learn how I did my pin up girl hair please let me know!
