As requested by my dear cousin all the way across the country, I present to you all, my version of pinup girl makeup. I put a modern twist on a classic look, highlighting more than the true to period makeup. With so many advances in cosmetic technology, why not upgrade the look a little? My new must-have for a modern pinup look is MAC’s new Electric Cool eye shadow in “Pure Flash!” It adds the perfect amount of shine and irridescence to your lid for a hint of glamour. The most important factors in a pinup look are the winged liner and defined eyebrows. Tamed and sculpted brows give that polished finish that pinup models have. Brows are usually forgotten in most people’s makeup routine, but the attention you give to them can make or break your look. In my Pinup Girl Makeup Tutorial, I use some of my favorite beauty products including some new Sigma brushes. Thanks for watching. Enjoy!

Thanks for watching my Monster High makeup tutorial!
I got more Tokidoki makeup! I purchased the Soda Shop palette along with a Kabuki Brush and Pittura angled blush brush. As you will find from my review, I liked everything except for the eyeliner. I hope you enjoy my review and natural bronze tutorial using the Tokidoki Soda Shop palette!
I recently purchased Nars’ Orgasm line of makeup at Sephora. They had a box set with lip gloss, blush, highlighter stick and nail polish. I was reluctant to buy it for a really long time because I didn’t want to give in to the hype of the name. I finally gave in when this value set came out. I’m am a coral fiend, so this line was pretty much made for me. I love how perfect the blend of pink and orange pigments look on my neutral yellow skin. Please watch my NARS Orgasm Tutorial video to see how you can wear these products.
I really didn’t want to hop on the “Lash Blast” Bandwagon, but I decided to give it a try (mostly beacause it was orange). I had returned every drug store mascara I purchased because they were all pretty horrible, but this one’s a keeper! It wasn’t clumpy, flaky or dry. It separated, volumized dramatically and lengthened my lashes. This will definitely be the mascara in my makeup artist kit. LOVES IT!!! Watch my tutorial below that shows my very first time using Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara.
