more pin-up girl

Two important things I have learned today about pin-up girl makeup:

1. It really is all about the mascara. I may even consider false eyelashes, that’s how All About The Mascara it is.

2. the makeup guy whose demo I watched was right: eyeshadow must be neutral. Very pale pink (which is what I had handy…the silver seems to have disappeared) turns out to give Too Much Pink on the face. Especially when I’m warm. Back to Boots with me.

Also, to my surprise, a plain ponytail with the makeup and the dress looks surprisingly 1950s, so possibly I’ve been worrying too much about the hair. I think I might attack my head with pincurls tonight (assuming I can manage to pincurl it) and see what it looks like tomorrow. This is starting to be fun.
