Anatomy of a Pin-Up: Winged Eyeliner

Hey Guys & Dolls!
A few weeks ago, SimplyBe asked me to create a series of Beauty Looks breaking down a classic party look. I thought this would be the perfect time to break down one of the most sought-after looks, A Classic Meets Modern Pin Up! For the next few weeks I’ll be breaking down the anatomy of a Pin-Up look: the Winged Liner, Perfected Skin, False Lashes and The Perfect Red Lip! Today we’re exploring Thick Winged Liner!

For those of you unfamiliar with SimplyBe, it’s a British clothing store that carries US sizes 10-28! They have some of the CUTEST on-trend clothing, not to mention great basics for plus-size women. At the end of the month I’ll be sharing a party themed Lookbook featuring different looks that all work with my modern take on Pin-Up style makeup!

  1. That pin-up look is simply beautiful and I totally agree with you when you say that it suits everyone. The video is also very helpful and, what’s more important, its so fun!!

  2. Hi Cora! I’m in my prime now, as I’ve finally gotten the kids out of the house, and I’m young enough to have fun exploring myself πŸ™‚ As a younger woman, I concentrated on work and my family, which left little time for me. Well, I still have to work, but the kids are taking care of themselves. I drive a fork lift at work, outside, at night, if you can imagine. I’ve been there for almost 7 yrs, and my boss is pretty comfortable with me and my skills. That being said, I have a lot of freedom with self expression that others may not be able to enjoy in the workplace. I love your tutorials, and try different looks regularly, much to the enjoyment of my husband and coworkers. Sometimes I don’t get it quite right, but I keep trying. Anyway, I wanted to say that I am learning as I go, and I always take something from your videos. You’re helping me to be a better me, and I want to thank you for that. You’re a truly wonderful person! Kudos πŸ™‚
