Supercharge Your Look: The Modern Pin-Up

Modernize the traditional ‘pinup girl’ look with a dramatic pop art color statement. You can choose whether to elongate, angle or tilt the shadow shape to best emphasize your facial features. Outlining the shape on the eye before adding powder helps to manage the application process easily, for mistake-proof results at home!

We will be using pencil to create a base and shape for this eye look. Begin by creating the desired shape by using a navy eyeliner, such as the Duo Pencil in Midnight/Smoke. Color glides on velvety smooth and it’s great for blending and smudging! Using the Midnight side, draw in a defined outline of the shape you want on the eye.

To determine what shape would work best for you, open and close the eye so you can see what looks most flattering overall. Look at the eye from all different angles to determine what you like.

Once you get the shape you like established, fill in the inside with the Duo Pencil. Don’t’ worry about getting this step perfect, as this is just the base shape and color. Blend this penciled line in with the  #11 Slanted Liner.

Now apply the color on top of the base you created with the Forever Trio Pearl-To-Matte Eye Shadow in the number #3 shade, a coordinating matte dark blue. A palette of three textures - soft shimmer, demi-matte, and matte blend beautifully for both day and evening looks. Pat color on top with the liner brush and blend to a nice finish, be sure to get color on top of entire base. The base makes the color pop and keeps it in place nicely! Clean up your edges with the #11 Slanted Liner Brush.

Curl lashes with the Mini EyeLash Curler to really open up the eye! This unique curler helps you curl lashes in smaller sections, keeping the curler a proper distance from the root.

Tight line the top lash line using the same dark blue eyeliner as before. Add a coat of black mascara and try to choose a formula that builds clean volume without appearing chunky on the lashes. Volume Plus Mascara creates full body, high volume lashes in a single stroke without ever clumping or flaking. Plus, peptides increase lash thickness and growth for healthier long-term lash results!
