I’m finally back to regular blogging here and I’m so excited to be bringing you new blog posts as well as hopefully launching myÂ YouTubeÂ channel in the very near future!
But for today, I thought I’d bring you just a little blog post on how toÂ incorporateÂ vintage style make up into your make up routine, especially for beginners to start getting the basics on how to look like the fabulous Dita, who is a prime example of classic vintage beauty styling. There are a few elements of stereotypical pin up/vintage style make up that can be used alongside a modern look or are great starting points. You can start with one or try all together, it really depends on you! I want to do posts about specific eras at a later date, so this one is purely a general makeup guide.
The pinup look is all about a matte finish, especially with foundation! This is achieved through using a liquid foundation set with a powder. The powder will not only set the foundation, but prevent shine.
There has been a very big shift in the past 2 years in the onlineÂ pin upÂ sceneÂ towardsÂ strongÂ defined brows that have an arch. The arch is veryÂ importantÂ as its what gives theÂ vintage shape. This can beÂ achievedÂ with drawing the shape with an eyebrow pencil or pot, if your brows don’t naturally have this shape.
