Iconic Makeup: 50’s Pin Up Girls


Hello Loves,

Roll back the clock to the 50’s. The war is over, the men are back, and the women have a reason to pull all the stops to be as glamorous as possible. This is the time when Hollywood glamour came to the local stores, and was becoming an everyday thing. The irony of it all is that the looks that have come from this decade are some of the most iconic of our time.

The first look here is the classic pin up. Yes, alot of women, celebrity or not, used this same look, but that is because it is sooo universal. This look will literally look amazing on anyone and everyone. You can always switch out the lip color for something more pink, which only adds to the versatility of this look. If you can’t tell, this is one of my all time favorite looks ever!

The good thing about these styles is that although they are vintage, they work for anyone and everyone, making them so iconic. So without further adieu, here’s the Victory Roll tutorial:

    1. Thanks alot! It’s definitely alot of fun to play with makeup. I would try out some of the tutorials you see and just practice. It really does make a world of difference. Some of my older tutorials are terrible lol.

  1. I’ve always been fascinated with Pin Up models from the ’50s. There’s something so timeless about them. I love that their beauty is portrayed while not showing a ton of skin. I love the tips and video for how to pull of their makeup at home. I’ll have to give it a try and surprise my husband!
