Pin Up Makeup look for photo shoot - Day 1

In my last post, I mentioned that I did a pin up themed shoot. It was 2 days in a row so I wore 2 different makeup looks as well as different outfits and accessories. I had to wake up at 5 am for both days. But I managed to do makeup that early without looking like a clown.
The pictures from the shoot aren't done being edited by the photographer and probably won't be for a few days. I figured I'd go ahead and share the first makeup look I did with you anyway.  When the photo shoot pictures are done, I'll post some on here to share with you. They are quite fun. :-)

Since we were going for a more authentic early 40's look, I opted to wear a wig, since my hair is currently red and black. I also took my nose ring out...which was a pain to get back in. I have to use pliers! Bleh.

Anyway, here is the first look.


Eyes (all applied in this order):
Coastal Scents Shadow worx eye primer (applied to upper lid, blending in gently with ring finger)
Sobe stick it! eye primer (applied all around the eyes patting then rubbing in gently with ring finger) 
Sobe - Latte (applied to crease and outer V)
Sobe - Pearl (applied to lid)
NYX - Nude Matte (applied under brow with MAC 217 by patting/sweeping) 
Kryalon Aqua Color - Black (applied wet with water, to upper lash line winging outward)  
Cover Girl Lash Blast Fusion Mascara - Very Black (lower lashes)
Ardell Lashes #120

Eyebrows: Sobe Fill Me In Brow Filler - Raven (applied with MAC 266)

Lips: Sobe Botanicals - Blood Red Tears with Pin Up lipgloss dabbed lightly on top

Skin MD Shielding lotion
Avon Ideal Flawless Invisible Coverage Foundation - Light Ivory (applied with a synthetic foundation brush by swiping it on, then patting to blend)
Sobe Powder Foundation - Light Warm (applied with Coastal Scents bionic buffer brush)
Sobe Tinted Illusionist (applied all over face/neck with a large powder brush) 
Sobe blush - After All (applied to cheek bones and blending back toward the hair line) 
Sobe Shimmer Powder - Bronzy Champagne (contoured cheek bones)


  1. You are stunning!

  2. You have to do a tutorial on the hair!

  3. That seems like a "bare" makeup on you since you usually use so much colour. Still beautiful! :)

  4. I really like how you did the eyes. Pearl and Latte worked perfectly together.

  5. i love this look on you! black hair fits you perfectly!

  6. wonderful look! i love the lipstick!
