Video Tutorial - 40's Pin-up Inspired Makeup

I had wanted to do a tutorial on a vintage-inspired look since I started this blog, and I finally did it over the weekend. This can also be called the "Dita von Teese look", since it is also heavily inspired by her signature eyeliner and red lips. To be honest I don't think I look very good in this kind of makeup, it makes me look like a trashy vampire. :p

Here is the video:

And here are a bunch more photos of the final result. I tried doing a video of how I did the hair, but since I don't have a tripod with me I couldn't really do it.




Hope you enjoyed this tutorial! :)
