Pin Up Girl Makeup Tutorial

September 21, 2011

Hello, Gorgeous!

Retro looks are some of my favorite to recreate as they are just so glamorous and feminine. When I make my tutorials, most of the time, I feel like a little girl playing dress up! I wanted to really highlight that a bit more in this video. While editing this video, I was inspired to inspire you to do the same. So, post a video on YouTube of yourself glammed up and looking like a pin-up and tell me what makes you feel confident! Leave it as a video response to this video (Don’t know how? Google it! It’s really simple!) and on October 3rd, I will be announcing the winner.

The winner will receive a makeup bag filled with some of my favorite beauty products as well as their choice of a piece of jewelry from Jewelmint!
