Think Bettie Page, Betty Grable, Marilyn Monroe, or in recent times, Dita Von Teese and Katy Perry, the common binding image that pops to your mind is of red pouting lips, wavy hair and cat like eyes, all of which team up to exude sensuality from every pore in their body. These pin up girls have always managed to stir awake the imagination of the population.
While not conventionally pretty or beautiful, these girls by enhancing a few of their features, tend to become the toast of the fashion and entertainment world, as examples of women who are not afraid of showcasing their sexy side.
One of the key ingredients in creating this look and transforming the plain ol' Norma Jean Bakers of the world to become the seductive Marilyn Monroes, is the right makeup.
The different items that you will need in order to create this look is foundation, eyebrow pencil, eyeliner, eyeshadow in two colors, vanilla and blue, highlighting powder, false eyelashes, blush in rose color, and red lipstick. If you are trying your hand at mimicking one of the celebs' styles, then these are tips that you will need to follow.
● Eyebrows tend to be ignored by most women, but high lifting, groomed, perfect eyebrows are very important to the look. Your eyebrows should be at their thinnest at the inner corners and at their thickest at the outer tips.
If you want to try one of the less dramatic ideas, then you can substitute the red lipstick with a lip gloss in nude or pink shade. You could also use a thinner eyeliner streak. Pin up makeup is synonymous with femininity and gorgeousness. Try these tips, combine it with the right clothes and hairstyles, and work your magic.
