Easy Pin Up Look

I hope that everyone had a great weekend! We finally head to watch Madagascar 3 yesterday :) I now have Afro Circus song as my ringtone!

Today I'll be sharing some tips to create an easy pin up look! It doesn't require much effort or a lot of time to complete this look. It took me about 20 minutes including taking pictures for the blog.

Finish Look

First and foremost, start with your primer or sun screen as you wish. Today I used Elf Flawless Finish Foundation for the first time with my Beauty Blender. 

For a more natural finish, remember to always wet your sponge (and squeeze out the excess water) prior to foundation application. This will help your make up to blend more easily and less likely to look cakey.

BEFORE Foundation

AFTER Foundation

Like usual, tight line (I used MAC's Black Track Fluid Line) and apply eye primer. 

Start off with applying a light shimmery peach colour across your lid, focusing on the inner corner and centre of the lid. Use the eye shading brush for this step.

Shimmery Peach Eyeshadow

Use the blending brush with a matte dark brown colour to blend lightly across the outer corner and drag the colour inwards just a slight bit. After, use eye shading brush with the same matte brown and line on the outer corner of the lower lash line.

 Clean the brush with a towel/ tissue, use a shimmery beige colour and highlight the rest of the lower lash line. Blend with fingers on the lower lash line.

Slight wing cat eyeliner + mascara

Line your eyes using a stiff tip liquid eyeliner for easier winged eyeliner application. Apply mascara.

Bobbi Brown Lash Glamour Extreme Lengthening Mascara

Contour the sides of your face and the bridge of your nose using a large stippling brush and  a matte bronzer.

Apply a peachy blush on the apples of your cheeks and blend out.
