I’m sure we can all agree that the pinup look is one of the best looks around. It’s feminine, strong, and in today’s day, unique. This look is great for any day and occasion and, if it’s not your usual daily wear, is fun to play around in and dress up with.
Let’s start channeling your inner Bettie Page!
Step 1 – Vintage-Inspired Makeup
Apply highlighter for a radiant glow.
Apply highlighter on the apples of your cheeks and under the arch of your eyebrows to create a healthy, natural-looking glow. To highlight the inner corners of your eyes, use a shimmery cream eyeshadow.
Step 2 – Vintage-Inspired Makeup
Contour your cheeks with a bronzer.
Using a bronzer, contour your cheeks to highlight your cheekbones.
Step 3 – Vintage-Inspired Makeup
Apply blush on the apples of your cheeks.
Apply a baby-pink blush on the apples of your cheeks.
Step 4 – Vintage-Inspired Makeup
Apply eyeshadows on the eyelids.
Using a neutral palette, pick the eyeshadow color closest to your skin tone and apply it on your eyelids. Next, pick the lightest shade and apply it on the inner corner of your eyes and below your eyebrows’ arch (on top of the highlighter you applied earlier).
Step 5 – Vintage-Inspired Makeup
Using brown eyeshadow, use your eyeshadow brush and focus at the base of the crease to achieve a gradient look.
Using a medium-to-dark brown eyeshadow, create a deep crease and diffuse it with an eyeshadow brush.
Step 6 – Vintage-Inspired Makeup
Create a winged eyeliner.
With an eyeliner pencil (we prefer liquid, but use whichever you feel most comfortable with), create your winged eyeliner look. Learn how to do winged eyeliner here.
Step 7 – Vintage-Inspired Makeup
Apply wax underneath the eyebrows to create a defined edge
Frame and define your eyebrows using wax and fill them in as necessary.
Step 8 – Vintage-Inspired Makeup
Apply flirty faux eyelashes.
To make your eyes really stand out, use false eyelashes. Dont’ be afraid; the pinup girl look is about channeling your feminine energy and going all out!
Step 9 – Vintage-Inspired Makeup
Apply your favorite shade of red lipstick!
To finish your makeup look off, apply bold red lipstick. Tip: applying lip tint before the lipstick will help the color stay vibrant for a longer period of time.
Step 1 – Vintage-Inspired Hair
Section hair and divide evenly.
Now it’s time to make some victory rolls! To get started, create a side part and then section your hair from your hairline to your ears (~ 3 inches) on both sides. Pull the rest of your hair back to make sure it doesn’t get mixed in with the part that you’ve sectioned off.
Step 2 – Vintage-Inspired Hair
Grabbing small sections, curl your hair in the same direction.
Now it’s time to curl your hair! When curling, be sure to create the curls away from your face and only grab small sections at a time. After you’ve curled your sections, secure the curls with a pin or clip.
Step 3 – Vintage-Inspired Hair
Once the hair cools down, remove the pins and apply hairspray to help keep the curls in place.
Once you’ve finished curling your hair, remove the clips/pins to let your hair loose.
Step 4 – Vintage-Inspired Hair
Comb the hair and apply hairspray to tame frizz.
Comb your curls to smooth them out and apply hairspray to tidy up any loose ends (or hairs).
Step 5 – Vintage-Inspired Hair
Create victory rolls.
We’re almost there! This is the last step to your pinup girl look. To create victory rolls, roll your hair twice around your fingers to create a donut shape (mmm, donuts). Once your donut is formed, secure it with a pin and move on to your next victory roll.
Ta-da – Vintage Inspired Makeup and Hair
Now you’re ready for the pinup girl calendar!
You’re all set to go!

When being a creative person working in a bustling business savvy world, it is most important to have a clear idea on what is important, what your brand stands for and to stay authentic to the brand you have built. Sometimes it is easy to feel motivated to book a job (or sell a product) by how large the outcome will be. Perhaps the client has a big budget but not exactly “in line” with who we are as a brand. Some times client will dangle the “great exposure” carrot or “there will be lots of celebrity presence” as a result of our work together.
Maybe the client wants us to sell something that is completely against who we morally –
In the age of social media rankings, popularity on a IMBD page, or how many “likes” a post has received- it can seem all too easy to slip away into the darkness of soulless branding.
If you are running your own business or working for another, chances are this has happened to you.
How can one stay upbeat about going to work, or working hard for themselves and still making an income?
CONNECT WITH LIKE MINDED BUSINESS AND BRANDS
There is nothing better in your work than to connect with other like-minded business partners to bring your brands to life knowing that both your integrity and personal beliefs can unite into one blissful business venture. One brand inspires the other and new possibilities are boundless.
Sure we all want to make money, and it is not always easy to turn down a client who is ready to make a deal but when your intentions get compromised for the sake of the sell- then is that truly a happy success?! Most millionaires will tell you that chasing money was not always the thing that satisfied.
When we are able to shine being authentic as to who we are on the inside- then everything on the outside will shine even brighter-
Be you- there is only one of you and this ride of life goes quickly-
Your business and your brand are a facet of who you are, what you believe and what you want to add to this world- so when you are thinking about how to sell your product- think about how you can do that with others of like minds-you will be amazed how things will unfold with grace and ease.
