FOTD: 50's Pin Up Girl.

I've always loved the 40's/50's Pin Up girl style make-up so I really enjoyed putting together the look for this post. I always think the celebrities who wear this style of make-up look stunning, like Dita Von Teese, Katy Perry and Christina Aguilera, as it is such a classic look and they always look flawless. The key to this look is the defined, arched eye brows, the cat eye winged liner and of course the cherry red lipstick. I think pale, matte eyeshadows are the way to go for this look, and a true baby doll pink on the apples of the cheeks. I hope you like my variation of the classic 50's Pin Up look :)
