Vintage Pin – Up Makeup : Modernized

Hello!  I got a request for vintage pin up makeup with a twist, so I did that look today!

Makeup I used:

Mon Ennui Cosmetics- Myrrh (dark gold on outer V) https://www.facebook.com/pages/Mon-Ennui-Cosmetics/179910115420725

-Ennui ( peach gold on lid) www.monennui.etsy.com

Dark Heart Designs- Bone Daddy (bone/cream with orange sparkle on highlight) https://www.facebook.com/darkheartdesigns

– Moonchild (pale silver on inner corner)  http://www.darkheartdesigns.com/

Lime Crime Makeup- Lipstick in Retrofuturist (true red) http://www.limecrimemakeup.com/idevaffiliate/idevaffiliate.php?id=1159

I also used a random matte brown for the crease

Milani- Black Liquif’eye eye liner pencil


For this look I kept the eyes neutral, but neutral does not have to be boring! I used metallic golds and silvers to make this look for modern, since the original look involves skin colored lids, a slightly darker brown crease to create depth, and a simple cat eye.  All of these colors were matte.  I love shimmery colors, so I decided to make this look metallic and chic.  The most versatile and expressive part of this look is the cateye liner.  This is the part where you can get creative and it is the staple, most identifiable part of this look.  You can go super thick on the end like Amy Winehouse, or do thin and delicate, gradate the line, make a huge one covering your whole eye * I was considering it*. You can make this very unique by experimenting with colors and textures as well!  Red lips are another staple of this look but don’t be afraid to try different reds or shimmers, or even black *I was thinking about it XD*.


Step by step tutorial

1. place the pale gold on the center of the lid *ennui*

2. use a silver for the tear duct *moonchild* and bring it under the eye about halfway

3. use a matte brown for the crease

4. add a pale cream *bone daddy* for highlight

5. using a dark gold *myrrh* on a small round brush and create a < shape on your eye *for right eye > * buff this color out as far as you like and bring it in a bit to the lashline and crease area.

6. Reapply some Ennui to center of lids to make this color pop more!

7. using a black liner, create the desired cateye shape, don’t forget to lightly trace your bottom lashline and blend in with the silver for a soft line.

8. Add mascara and lashes if desired

9. slightly darken brows- you want to accentuate the intense eye makeup with sculpted brows!

9. choose your wildest red! *if you DARE!* and apply to lips and cheeks.  I opt for a matte color since the eyes have a lot of shimmer. Adding a bit of lipstick as a cheek color is great when you want to match your lipstick to your blush! You also get a very natural looking flush since it does not lay on top of the skin as much as powder would!

10. Finish lips with gloss if desired, or set look with powder foundation

Good luck and don’t be shy to be creative with color choices!

Peachy Princess look ^__________^

Hey Everyone! Today I was feeling in a peachy nude girly mood today! So I created these looks using mainly 3 different brands of products: Lime Crime Coquette lipstick, Mon Ennui Cosmetics eyeshadow in Fairytale & nude jewelry grade crystals, Dark Heart Designs eyeshadow in Ghost Dog from Halloween on Christmas.  How to Achieve this look:

Start off with concealer, apply it in the corners of your eyes, under your eyes, sides of the nose and mouth, blend with your fingers (try not to tug on the skin!)  Apply your foundation of choice, I use liquid foundation and use a brush, starting at the nose and working my way outward in circular motions.  Apply Coquette to well exfoliated lips.  Dip an eye shadow brush in Fairytale, or a similar color that is pink with gold reflects.  Dip this into some water and then paint this on your lids! This is called wet application and will bring out the shimmery metallic elements in a loose shadow.  Take a shimmery white or Ghost Dog, a white with orange and red undertones and put that on brow bone and tear duct.  Using a plum liner line close to the lash line and do a wing if you would like.  Use a peach blush and apply to apples of cheeks for a healthy glow! Add fake lashes if you would like, I used Ardell Glitz and Glam in Naomi because I have little lashes and I want HUGE ONES! 😀 I also added the nude crystals to finish the look.  Feel free to get creative here and express yourself!!

Purple and Gold Makeup Look

This looks was also found on cutoutandkeep.net as a tutorial.  It involves purlple and gold colors.  These are complimentary colors and they work well together in this look.  I used Lime Crime Airborne Unicorn Opaque Lipstick on my lips and Lime Crime Magic Dust in Nymph.  A purple shadow was used on the outer part of my eye.  Airborne Unicorn is a lovely rich purple that is a stunningly vibrant shade.  Nymph placed in the corners of the eyes is a white shadow that when put on the lids turns into a pale gold, which works well on my skin tone since I personally have cool undertones and do not pull off gold and bronzes well.  This also helps the look achieve balance by using warm colors on the eyes, the purple is a more red purple and the gold is warm as well. The purple lipstick is more cool which contrasts nicely with this look.  My hair has purple and teal feathers and I have a turquoise necklace on! My favorite colors include purple and teal so I like to create looks that use both of them!
