Hello Beauties,

Happy Friday!¬† So glad, it’s the weekend. ūüôā ¬†Anyway, I did a makeup look awhile back that I think would work great as a makeup look for Valentine’s Day. ¬†Feel free to recreate this fun and sparkly look.

Recreate this look:

Eyes:¬†First off, I started with a neutral brown color in e.l.f’s¬†brightening quad eyeshadow ($1), all over the lid. ¬†Second, I used Profusion’s Absolute Eyes Palette¬†and used the dusty rose color at the corner of my eyes with e.l.f’s¬†contouring brush. Next, I used NYX‘s Primal eyeshadow in Hot Pink for $5 (a steal!) ¬†Again, I used a contouring brush and swept the hot pink shadow above my crease, I also took this color and lined my lower lashes¬†with a damp angled brush. Make sure to blend the hot pink in the crease with an eyeshadow brush, to blend out the color. ¬†Finally, I used a gel liner and winged out my eyeliner! *Tip: I like to use an angled brush to apply gel eyeliner. ¬†Oh and don’t forget to curl your lashes and use your favorite mascara.

Face: First, I primed my face with NYC‘s Perfecting Primer¬†(I like that it has a shimmer to it). ¬†I found it at Walmart for just under $4.

I’m not a fan of heavy foundation so I opted for a BB Cream. ¬†I used Covergirl’s Tinted Moisturizer in fair to light. I also sometimes wear concealer, go ahead choose your favorite one. ¬†I personally like e.l.f.’s¬†Cover Everything concealer. ¬†Don’t forget to powder your face with a big fluffy brush, I used e.l.f.’s ¬†flawless face powder in Ivory. ¬†Next, I used a pink blush, I chose what I had which is Mary Kay’s duo cheek color in Juicy Guava. ¬†*Tip: I like to use the neutral shade as a highlighter above my blush, under my nose, on the chin, and by the hairline.

Lips: For the lips, I used products from Sally’s Beauty Supply. ¬†The quality of these products wasn’t the best, but it was some of the makeup I had left over from my Jem and the Holograms look from Halloween. ¬†

Truly, Truly Outrageous!

First, I used Beautique’s Jumbo Lip Crayon in Shocking all over my lips. ¬†Next, I put on¬†Sally girl mini mood lipstick in Magic Pink. ¬†Finally, I put on Sally Girl’s Sparkle Effects loose glitter in Princess Pink all over my lips with my finger.

There you have it, a fun and flirty Retro Inspired Valentine’s Day makeup look! ¬†Let me know if you recreate this look and tag me on my social media with the hashtag #retromodern so I can see your look. ūüôā

Pinup and Rainbow Glam Makeup by Miss Mouse

Hello, Lovelies!

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 for makeup and I love that she is into the retro glam look that I live for. I asked her to do a retro-inspired rainbow eye look; a few of my favorite things. ūüôā Below is how to get her complete pinup glam look.

Miss Mouse’s #retromodern¬†rainbow pinup look.

First, you start off with a simple smokey eye look. Click here for a 3-minute brown smokey eye tutorial! For a simple brown smokey eye, use Too Faced Chocolate Bar eyeshadow 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 the perfect winged eyeliner!
When in doubt wing it out!  Miss mouse adding the winged eyeliner.

The Rainbow eyeliner!
Rainbow eyeliner how-to. 

1. Add the yellow eyeliner to the inner corner on top of the black wing you just created.

2. Next, add the bright pink eyeliner next to the yellow eyeliner.

3. Next, go over a little bit of the yellow eyeliner to mix in with the pink to give you an orange color.

4. Now add the light blue eyeliner all the way to the end of the wing.

5. For the final step, mix the blue eyeliner with some of the pink to get a pretty purple shade.

Eyeliner Details:
The Yellow gel liner is from Inglot in 84. For a budget-friendly option, I found a yellow eyeliner pencil from Yves Rocher in Lemon Yellow.
The blue gel liner is also from Inglot in¬†88. For those on a budget,¬† I suggest Essence’s long lasting eyeliner in Turquoise.¬†Last but not least, is the¬†pink gel eyeliner from Tarte in¬†Bubblegum Pink.¬†For the budget conscious, I would go for Nyx’s Vivid Brights Cr√®me Color in Love Overdose.

For the finishing touches, and to complete the look 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 voil√† your done! ūüôā

Lips:

For the lips, Miss Mouse is wearing her favorite red lipstick (a retro matte lipstick) in the shade All Fired Up.

The Finale!

Hair:

Next, curl your hair with a wide barrel curling iron to complete this retro-modern look and don’t forget to throw on a cute pinup print dress. ūüôā You can find some really cute ones on Modcloth. Lastly, I was able to find an article on 42 pinup hairstyles, a must read if you ask me.¬†

Keep smiling,
