Makeup collaboration: 50’s pin up style

Hello Beautiful women,
Today we are very happy to present a make-up collaboration between Sarah-Jane from Makeup by Sarah-Jane and Nicole from Nicole’s Beauty blog. We are both beauty bloggers, passionately in love with make-up and because of our similar taste we thought of doing collaboration and show our make-up tricks by following the same theme. We chose to do a 50’s pin up style theme, where each one of us will show you our own take on this theme.

Sarah-Jane:
I am very happy to do this theme because it is a style I like very much and have been doing this type of make-up for a while now. 50’s pin up was all about heavy eyeliner, long lashes and red lips. They didn’t have the products we have nowadays so they eye-shadow was very simple, and they focused mostly on the lips.

1. So first of all I used base colours like whites and beige from the e.l.f palette. (I do suggest you use a concealer before you apply the base colours to last longer)
2. Secondly I use a medium darkness shade of brown from the e.l.f palette and applied it on the inner crease and outer lid of the eye.
3. Then I applied heavy catlike eyeliner using the e.l.f cream eyeliner.
4. Finished off by applying some fake eyelashes to complete the look.
5. Finally I applied some red lipstick using my favourite loreal serum red lipstick.
It is a very easy look to do, and to pull off. I also tried to style my hair pin up style give the full effect of the theme.

Nicole:
Pin up inspired makeup is one of my favorite style to do and has recently become my go-to look! This particular style requires minimal products and it’s super quick and easy to create! A pin up look is all about the statement lip and the fabulous lashes, which everybody, regardless skin tone, can pull of!

1. Start by prime the eyelid and apply a white eyeshadow in the inner corner of the eye.
2. Apply a creamy/white eyeshadow to the rest of the lid.
3. With a blending brush, apply a skin toned or taupe colored eyeshadow in the crease and blend!
4. Start to define the crease, using a dark brown eyeshadow. To add some further depth to the look, apply a black eyeshadow to the crease and blend well!
5. Create a thick winged eyeliner and apply some false lashes.

My makeup look is slightly more dramatic than Sarah-Jane’s, but it’s a pretty look to wear on a night out! On my lips I am wearing my beloved Ruby Woo by MAC and of course I had to add a fake maul for this theme, just for some fun! 🙂

Hope you liked our post, keep posted for more!
