pin up girl

Y'all ready for my first makeup how-to? Here it is! I want to apologize in advance because the photo quality isn't that great. I'm still working on this, but I think you guys will get the idea. So here we go!
This look is super easy, classy and fun to wear! 
Start off by putting on an eyeshadow primer like this one... It's from MAC and the color is called soft ochre.
 make sure to cover the entire lid. Second step is to apply a taupe color in the crease of your eye. This look is all about the liner, so you really don't have to focus on shading or blending anything too much. Use a round tip brush like this one below.
Then you're going to take you're going to take a black liquid liner and trace it along your lash line. Draw past where your eye ends as though you are going to trace it up to your brows. That will create that 'winged' look. Don't worry about creating a perfect line across your lash line, because you're going to go over the liner with a black shadow (I like carbon from MAC). Use an angled brush to trace over the liner to make it more bold, and soften up the harsh look of liquid liner. Then all  you have to do is add lots of black mascara. Dior is my favorite. Always has been, always will be:) It's a little pricey, but it's so worth it!!! It lasts about 4-5 months. After that pout those lips and apply some red liner and lipstick and you're ready to go!!! 

Again, I'm sorry for the bad lighting and quality of the photos, but I know y'all get the idea. Hope you liked it! Try going glam this weekend, you'll love it!
