How To

The Pin-up Look for Beginners

Get the sexy pin-up look you’ve always desired!

Pin-up girls have been making men swoon and women jealous for over a century! They carry an undeniable sex appeal and an aurora of unmistakable confidence.

Here’s how can you get the pin-up look that will make men pant?

1. Hair

You will need bobby pins, hair spray, hair rolls, big curling brush, curling iron, bandanna and any other hair accessories you like.

Pick a 1940s hairstyle that complements your face shape. The classic 1940s hairstyle is usually a mixture of pin-curls, side-reverse rolls, or victory rolls. For a quick look change, you can find a good wig.

2. Makeup

The 1940s produced a glamorous look that focused on 4 points: eyebrows, eyelashes, eyes, and lips.

Pin Up Eyebrows – You will need: tweezers, ruler, eyebrow pencil.

First, you need to shape your eyebrows for the perfect look. Start off close to the bridge of your nose with a thick arch and as you get further towards the brow line, taper the brow off into a thinner line.

Once styled, eyebrows are emphasized with an eyebrow pencil. Make sure you chose a color that is the color of your hair or one shade lighter. Create a solid, defined line with the pencil. Fill it in.

Pin Up Eyelashes – You will need: black mascara, eyelash curler, fake eyelashes or extensions (if desired).
