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. 🙂 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 TurquoiseLast 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 Crème 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 voilà your done! 🙂

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. 🙂 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.

Catching up with Jemma aka Dorkface! The Interview.

Hello Fashionistas,

I got the chance to chat with the lovely Jemma: Dorkface from Twitter. This is my first fashion interview and I’m excited to share this with you all. 🙂 My goal when interviewing people is to figure out why people wear what they do and how it makes them feel! Without further ado, here’s our interview.

Hi Jemma,
I’m starting a new blog that focuses on fashion, particularly retro fashion and the history behind what we wear in the current time. Below are my questions and her answers.
R: Why is fashion important to you?
J: A great outfit can instantly change my mood, and make me feel amazing. Plus being able to express myself through what I wear is pretty awesome 🙂
R: How do clothes make you feel?
J: It depends. If I find something flattering, in my style, I’m extremely happy! I feel as if my true self is being represented. However, I also experience a lot of bad feelings often, as I can’t find anything which feels like ‘me’.
R: Where do you go to buy your clothes or which websites do you buy your clothes from?
J: All over! I like to collect clothing from anywhere and everywhere. At the moment I absolutely LOVE everything from Lazy Oaf, and ASOS is always brilliant.
R: What is the most important thing you consider when you are shopping?
J: Comfort, and being able to wear it more than once. If it does neither of these things, then it’s pointless. It sounds quite boring but honestly, I’ve wasted so much money on crap in the past that I’m not entirely comfortable wearing, and I never wear them again. 
R: I noticed on Twitter that you are rocking the Pink hair. How does this affect your clothing decisions?
J: I tend to avoid red now!! I love red, but I feel it clashes with the pink of my hair. But I’m now loving wearing matching clothes and accessories. Pink is one of my favourite colours and now that my hair is pink, I feel more confident wearing it too which is ace.
R: If you could only wear clothing from one particular decade which one would it be and why?
J: This one! I love everything modern, bright, holographic. 90’s throwbacks are also AMAZING as a lot of it appeals to my colourful, kawaii side. But yep I’d stay here, to be honest.
R: What are your favorite accessories to wear i.e brands, homemade, local, Etsy etc.
J: I love unique, one of a kind Etsy stores. I’m a huge supporter of small business and I always try to buy there first 🙂
R: How does makeup play into how you dress?  What is your favorite makeup looks and where do you buy your makeup products?
J: I love a bright lip and a subtle but smokey eye. I do love anything super girly, bright, and kawaii. Lipsticks are one of my favourite makeup products, especially MAC. It feels like such a treat to wear them.
R: Please describe one of your favorite outfits and if possible the links to where you got the items and or descriptions.

J: At the moment it would be my very bright coloured dungarees-

These are only from Primark but I love them! Very ME. Unfortunately I can’t link them though!  *Check them out below, I love the bright and fun floral pattern, ooh la la!*
