Rockabilly Pin-Up Makeup




This look was inspired by the 1950s vintage pin-up style, Rockabilly, and Dita Von Teese. I wanted to do a new spin on the classic pin-up look, by paring down the look a little bit and making it more simple to wear for everyday if that is your style. I also needed an excuse to wear MAC Lady Danger lipstick, a new surprising favorite. Who knew that an orange-toned tomato red color would actually suit me? It's a nice change from the blue based red lipsticks I would normally go for.





Face
Lancome Teint Idole foundation, MAC Studio Finish concealer

Cheek
MAC Stereo Rose MSF, Bobbi Brown Clementine blush

Eyes
NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk, MAC eyeshadows in Solar White, Malt, Soft Brown and Vanilla, MAC Blacktrack Fluidline, Max Factor Natural Glaze eye kohl, Maybelline The Colossal mascara

Lips
MAC Redd lipliner, MAC Lady Danger lipstick

  4. Oh Julia,
    You are the best ever!!
    No one else does tutorials like you do. Not trying to flatter but this is the truth.
    Perfect lighting,no noise in the background, very well organised. All these things make such a difference.

    I have looked at your videos many many times and they have a great degree of quality.
    My makeup applying skills have improved and you know why?... because of the mighty Julia.. ..
    Thanks a million!!!

    Cheers :)

  5. I'm glad to see someone using the Solarwhite eyeshadow, it is my favorite....and this is the kind of look that I go for so thank you very much. It's just a shame it was a limited edition eyeshadow.

    Beautiful look !

    May I just ask what shade of foundation you used ? Because I'm really fair, as you, and looking for a good pale foundation shade.

    Oh, and which number is the thin painting brush you used for the liner. Every brushes I tried for liner were to thick.

    Thanks for your videos and keep doing some ;)

  18. This is in reaction to one of the tweets tou wrote but since you don't follow me you wouldn't be able to read this, So I'm writing it here. About people that get you down because they expect you to be perfect...
    I'm so sorry those people get you down. I hope you also see that you have soooo many fans. And for good reason! 'Cause you rock, your looks are fantastic and you seem like a very sweet person to me. Please don't let the dumb, jealous and ignorant get to you. They are NOT worth it.

    I love your tutorial, very creative!

    I am getting married in late September. My dress is a glamour dark red, I would like to do a makeup similar to this one. What colour for the lip should I wear? Same as the dress? I thinks it might be too dark. I am not a lipstick nor a lipgloss person.

    Thanking you in advance for any help.

    Hi Julia, just looking around for halloween ideas and found you on Youtube. Sooo happy I did because I love the pin-up look and have been trying on my own, but am make-up brain-dead.

    PLUS your skin tone is fair like mine and the green eyes as well, it's hard to figure out how to accent them.

    Beautiful, keep up the good work!!

    Julia ! I was wondering if that MAX FACTOR pencil was a good substitute for the MAC chromagraphic pencil nc15/nw 20. Thanks ! (or anyone knows besides Julia)

  29. I absolutely adore this look and you make it look so acheivable and wearable. I'll be wearing this for my vow renewal in Las Vegas soon.
    One thing, the MAC blush and a couple of the shadow shades are no longer available, would you be able to recommend any alternatives?
