makeup pin up

If there’s one style in which makeup is important, that’s the pin up style. But, what kind of makeup do you need to be really made up with this style? What should you enhance your face? And most importantly, how much do you have to spend for pin up makeup?

Pin up makeup, a titanic task?

It has always been said that «women take hours to prepare,» and the phrase was probably born with women in the 1950s, who spent a lot of time in front of the make-up mirror.

The pin up makeup works with the eyebrows, eyelashes, lips and tries to get the woman to have a porcelain skin, highlighting a little cheeks and cheekbones. The best way to save money is to buy a complete set of pin-up make-up, because if you go to buy each cream, lipstick, eye pencil… separately, you could end up leaving yourself a complete fortune.

Now, you have to be determined to pay what it’s worth. Although there are very interesting offers for which to get a good set of makeup for a fairly low price for your pocket, if you’re interested, of course. Although if you don’t want to pay for it yourself, it can always be a good gift.

There is nothing like being up to date with an old style, such as pin up aesthetics. Over the years, this fashion of the 40s and 50s in countries like the USA has returned to stay, especially thanks to renowned personalities like Dita Von Teese or Katy Perry.

What steps must you follow to get a perfect look with pin up makeup?

Formerly, every woman knew how to make up and be ready with this type of look. Today? Few women know the secrets of pin up makeup. However, it’s not something for you to worry about, because we’re going to update you right away with these simple steps.

Get your face clean
The first step is to cleanse the skin well. After all, the appearance of the skin is the number one key to pin up makeup. To do this, you’ll need to hydrate it and prepare it properly.

For facial cleansing you can subtilize a gel that fits your skin type, then a tonic and finally a hydrating cream. With this you will have it ready to take the first step in your pin up makeup.

Work towards a porcelain complexion
An impeccable complexion, pure and clear. This is how you should get your complexion with pin-up make-up, but how do you get it? You have to work in order to look like you have the face of a porcelain doll.

To do this, apply a makeup base of the same color as your skin, or a little lighter. This should be spread over your face, so that there is not a single unsightly cut. Finally, cover and hide those imperfections of the face, using a good concealer. Finally, seal the makeup, using a little translucent powder for your complexion.

Lined Eyes
The second protagonist, so to speak, in pin-up make-up are the eyes. You have to get what are known as delineated eyes. And how do you get that?

The first step is to apply light eye shadows on the upper eyelid, in nude or beige tones, well blurred. Next, use a black eyeliner, which will mark the expressiveness of the eyes.

The trick is to draw a well-defined line over the upper lashes. This line should be extended upwards, simulating a small tail, which tears the eyes and gives a feminine look. What do you want a softer look that brings more luminosity? Then make a water line with a beige eye pencil.

Very long eyelashes
Are you done with your eyes yet? Good, because it’s your turn to eyelashes. A pin up girl is distinguished by her extra long eyelashes, so she accentuates the length of these using an eyelash curler, as well as their curvature. You can improve them by applying two layers of black mascara, giving them more intensity.

However, if you’re looking for a more shocking look, you should bet on false lashes. This way, if you don’t have a lot of skill when it comes to working with eyelashes, it will be impossible for you to screw up.

Define the eyebrows
You did the eyelashes, but now it’s your turn to prepare the eyebrows, which must be well defined. This serves to frame the look. They must be the same color as your hair, and in just a few minutes you can have them ready, as there is not much to do with them.

Paint your lips red
You are almost at the end of the process to get a perfect look with a pin up makeup. The lips have to be painted in a red color, better if it’s a passion red color, which gives you a sexy and sensual touch.

What do you want the painting to last longer? In that case outline and fill each lip with a red pencil and then paint with the lipstick of your choice.

Blush for your cheeks
We’ve reached the last step! You’ll need to apply a little natural blush to give your cheeks a slight blush. To do this, use the color of a natural shade, which fuses well with the color of your skin. Don’t overdo it, and don’t use brushes that are too intense.

Any final advice to make your makeup perfect?

The truth is that making up like a pin up girl was something you used to do in the sleepovers of the 1940s, a simple and perfect activity for a group of friends. But if you want, we can give you some advice:


  • Remember that the face must be very clean, or the makeup will not adhere well to you. Or worse, you’ll look more like a monster than anything else. Not only with water, but also with good moisturizing creams, so that it fits you in luxury.
  • You don’t have to spend a fortune to get a pin up look, so you don’t fall into that deadly trap of buying all these products. Surely what you already have at home will suffice.
  • When you start making up, first work on one area and then another, or you’ll end up doing a mess. Don’t start with your lips until you’ve finished with your eyes, or your eyes before you’ve applied the first layer of makeup.
  • In fact, it’s best to count on a friend’s help to achieve the perfect pin up makeup. She’ll see you better than you can in front of the mirror, so you’ll get a more natural pin up look.
