This is a retro fashion blog with a twist of modern. I like to show how to be fashionable on a budget!
Retro Glam Pinup Makeup by Miss Mouse!
Today I am featuring a makeup artist from Texas that I found on Instagram, Mayra aka Miss Mouse. Check her out here! She has an amazing eye(no pun intended) for makeup and I love that she is into the retro glam look that is in style right now. I asked her to do a makeup look that was retro but with rainbow eyeliner.. a few of my favorite things. 🙂 Below is her how to pinup glam look!
Miss Mouse’s retro modern rainbow pinup look.
First you start off with a simple smokey eye look.Click here for a 3 minute brown smoky eye tutorial! For the simple brown smokey eyes, I used Too Faced Chocolate palette.
Next, add black eyeliner. I used NYX’s gel eyeliner in Jet Black. I don’t know if you’re like me but I Google everything! Check out wikihow’s article on how to get a perfect winged eye!
When in doubt wing it out! Miss Mouse adding the winged eyeliner.
For the rainbow eyeliner, 1st add the yellow eyeliner, then the pink, go over a little bit of the yellow with pink to get a good mix of orange, then add a light blue eyeliner and go over the pink to get a shade of purple.
Yellow gel liner is from Inglot in 84, which is unfortunately sold out when I went to their page. I
was able to find a lower end eyeliner pencil from Yves Rocher for $3. For a higher end option, I
would go with a waterproof eyeliner in Canary from Stila. The blue gel liner is also from Inglot
in 88(also sold out). Don’t worry, I was able to sleuth out some substitutes! For the lower end, you
could go with Rimmel’s waterproof eyeliner in Turquoise. I personally like Rimmel products. For
the higher end, I would recommend Stila’s All Day waterproof eyeliner in Light Turquoise. Last
but not least, is the Pink gel eyeliner from Anastasia Beverly Hills in Barbie Pink.
Completed Rainbow Cat eye look. Super glam!
For the final touches for the eyes, add eyelashes(which give this look more drama!), use a black pencil liner to your waterline, and then add two coats of your favorite mascara and voilà your done! 🙂
On my lips, I am wearing an awesome lipstick by MAC it’s a Retro Matte lipstick in the shade of “All Fired Up“
Next, curl your hair with a wide barrel curling iron to complete this #retromodern look and don’t forget to throw on a cute pinup print dress 😀 You can find some real cute ones on Modcloth. One more thing, I was able to find an article on 25 pinup hairstyles, a must read if you asked me. 🙂
Thanks for reading my first #retromodern beauty post! Stay tuned for more posts like this. 🙂
