Pin Up Look

The glamour ideal of a “pin up” girl is not merely a ‘look,’ it’s a style statement and a state of mind. She’s provocative, sexy and playful. She’s a scene stealer! It’s a vintage meets modern beauty, based on all those gorgeous starlets of the early motion picture business who first captured the attention of the world.

Soft wavy hair just like Lana Turner, the elongated cat eyes of Ava Gardner, the full red lips of Rita Hayworth…these women captured the public imagination and enraptured their leading men, while setting the first beauty trends of their time.

How to get that glamorous, sophisticated style? The VL team of make up artists will show you the way. The look is retro, but certainly has everlasting appeal!


Pin Up Look

Pin Up Look - Vincent Longo

Begin by applying a light colored shadow with a hint of sparkle to draw attention to the lid. Wet Diamond Eyeshadow in Dawn Flesh will add minimal color, but create maximum impact! High-tech, light reflective pearls in a creamy soft, full-color baked eye powder makes Diamond Eyeshadow unlike any other product available.

Add depth to your eyes by using a darker matte shadow in the crease of the eye and highlight the brow bone with a lighter shade that has a pearl finish. Try using shade #2 in the crease and #1 on the brow of our Trio Eyeshadow Pearl-to-Matte in Primitive.

Next you’ll want that perfect winged liner in velvet black, try using our #11 Angle Liner and gently tip the brush upwards towards the end of your stroke. Vincent’s Crème Gel Eyeliner in Blu Raven has a subtle pearl finish that gives added depth and dimension, plus it’s waterproof and dries to a supple, no-flake finish.

Using our new Volume Plus Mascara will allow you to build instant lash drama. Formulated with a signature blend of seaweed and marine extracts to help increase length and density, this mascara is long lasting and nourishes lashes.

For a fully flirty pin up eye, add Dolce Vita Lash Tips before adding mascara. Vincent’s La Dolce Vita Tips are 1/3 the size of traditional false lashes, so they fit snuggly along the outer corner of your upper eyelid.

Pin Up Look

Highlight the bridge of your nose and the highest point of the apple of your cheeks with a soft glow by using Water Canvas Blush in Lucky Light.

To achieve a stylized brow that is purposely full and arched, use Bi-Brow Powder Pomade to fill in your brow in any sparse areas, and guide the line of a groomed arch.

For the cheeks you want to keep it natural. Using your fingertips, gently blend just a hint of Water Canvas Blush in Tuscan Spell on the apples of cheeks.

Pin Up Look

A perfectly gorgeous red lip that lasts all day requires layering, so start off with our Lip & Cheek Gel Stain in Liquid Kiss, painting the full lip as a color base. On top, apply our Thinstick Lipstick in London along the natural lip contour.

Pin Up Look

Complete the look with a waist hugging dress, classic clutch, a vintage brooch placed just to the side of the décolleté…sexy never goes out of style!
