Vintage Pinup Girl Video and Example

I just love the internet, especially now with websites like YouTube. You can find out how to do just about everything.

I’m always looking for ways to make myself look vintage or retro. Makeup tutorials are hard to find when it comes to old styles from the 30s, 40s and 50s, etc.

Luckily, I found a super great video on YouTube showing how to get a vintage pinup makeup look. Then I tried it out for myself.

Here’s the video for your enjoyment:


Great look, huh? It looks very vintage, especially with the model’s hair style.

Here’s how it turned out for me, following the directions:

The only thing I didn’t do was use fake eyelashes. I don’t have those on hand. I bet if I got some my rendition of this look would look better. We’ll see! Otherwise, I think this looks very good. I was happy with everything.

This pinup look uses liquid eyeliner. If you have any qualms about using it, check out How to Use Liquid Eyeliner.

What do you think? Did I pull it off? Would you wear this makeup look?

  1. Ooh I love this! I think you pulled it off very nicely — I’m inspired to try it this weekend!

    I love when girls can pull off the whole retro look… I can never figure out how to make my hair look more vintage though. hmm.
