Pin-up Hair, Makeup and Clothing…on a budget!

Hello lovely ladies!

If any of you have ever dabbled in the “pin-up” craze; but don’t have the funds to furnish that wardrobe, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Rockabilly/pin-up clothing can be expensive, but luckily for you, I have found ways to successfully create the look without the expense. All items I’ve posted are under $40. I have also added a video that will show an easy pin-up makeup & hair combo that anyone can do!

Firstly…your staple “pin-up” items

1. High-waisted jeans

You can purchase high-waisted jeans in a lot of stores. What you’re looking for is; flat color(no shimmer, sparkle or fading), no tears or embellishments (unless we’re talking buttons),tight fitted, ankle length or pedal pushers. You can even roll up these jeans at the bottom and it looks awesome!

2. High-waisted shorts

The key to these shorts are that they should be: short but still “lady-like.” Meaning, short but not so short that you have to continually pull them down to cover your tushy. Feel free to go with patterns and bright colors. Just again, no tears or fading. Also, shorts don’t have to be tight 🙂

3. Feminine blouse

I tend to wear…tight fitting with loose fitting. So if I’m going to wear a loose blouse, I will wear it with tight pants and vice versa.

4. Cardigans

The trick with cardigans is that…again, they be tight and short. Bold colors and prints are perfect!

5. The pencil skirt

These should be tight and high waisted. They should always hit at or below the knee.

There you have it. Check out the video below to see me put the pin-up hair and makeup into action. I had to cut a lot of it, turns out I talk a lot.

3D Mascara Tutorial

So this is my 3D Fiberlash Mascara tutorial. I was asked how to use it, and here it is!

You’re going to have to mind my facial expressions while putting the mascara on. I don’t think there is a pretty way to do it!

Makeup Haul!

I have been waiting patiently for this to come in the mail. I’ve been stalking the mail man since I found out that it’s been shipped. As I’ve said before, I don’t splurge unless I love the products. I love Younique products and they just came out with a few new products I had to try! I made the money conscious decision of purchasing a Collection because I calculated my savings.

Let’s get right into it!

SAMSUNG CSCThis little box brought me so much joy 😉

So what was inside? Only all these amazing products!

SAMSUNG CSCIn this set you get:

  1. Moodstruck 3D Fiberlash Mascara
  2. Lip Pencil (I got Primal shade)
  3. Eye Pencil (I got Proper shade)
  4. One fantastic sharpener
  5. 2 Mineral pigment eye shaddow’s (I got Awestruck & Provoked)
  6. Mineral Touch Pressed Powder (Taffeta shade)
  7. Stiff Upper Lip Stain (I got Sultry shade)
  8. Beachfront Bronzer (Sunset shade)
  9. Amazing Younique makeup bag that has built in pockets for your brushes

First, I pretty much started with a blank canvas. Just concealer and primer.

Next, I only used the Mineral Touch Pressed Powder and the Bronzer. I was really happy with the texture and coverage of the powder. It was very soft! The bronzer had a little shimmer but not too much.

Next, I started playing with the mineral pigments. I kind-of expected an explosion of powder when I opened them but the powder was not as loose as some of the cheaper brands I’ve tried.

Next, I applied some eye liner and regular mascara…

Then, I did something awesome…I used my 3D Mascara! I also applied a neutral lip. I’ve been using this 3D Mascara for a while and it’s my favorite. All my girlfriend’s use it and all my colleagues at work. Everyone is hooked on it! It literally makes your lashes look so much longer and it’s water resistant!

Finally, I wanted to check out the Lip Stain but it would be too much together with my eye makeup so I wiped that off. Be warned though, this is a lip stain; it will stay exactly wherever you put it! I also used my Lip Pencil. Younique lip pencils are great. If you get a neutral color, you can use it all over your lips and NEVER re-apply during the day.

One of my favorite part about shopping at Younique is their Monthly Kudos. This month, when you spend $75, you get $10 Y-Cash! That’s pretty awesome.

If you like this set, it is called Show Stopper and the link to order is below.
