FOTD: 'Pin Up' Glamour!

Today i thought i'd show a quick look i've been wearing a lot recently. I've been loving the 'pin up' look - red lipstick and winged liner - for both day and night! I've seen it on a few tanned ladies recently: Rita Ora, Karis Anderson from Stooshe and Rihanna rocking this look so decided to give a shot myself! 



MAC Prolong wear Foundation
MAC Mineralise skinfinish natural powder
Blusher from the ebay blush palette (top row last on the right) - full post here
MAC 'dazzlelight' eyeshadow 
MAC 'blacktrack' gel eyeliner
Avon Supershock mascara
Avon ultra colour rich lipstick 'Red 2000'
MUA out there pluming lipgloss 'Buff'


I love this lipstick from Avon (available here)- it's extremely pigmented yet creamy and moisturising at the same. All you need is one layer and you have a full opaque bright red. I find this lipstick looks best when a light layer is applied with a lip brush. It lasts such a long time too. For £7 it's not expensive nor cheap - i found it on offer in the brochure - so keep an eye out!
MUA pumping lip glosses are great as they add a nice gloss to the lips without looking wet and they aren't sticky either which is a huge bonus (full review here)! The shade 'buff' is a nude colour - so it tones down the brightness of this lipstick slightly and makes my lips look shiny and full. 

I love this look - it's so classic and will suit everyone! I never thought i was much of a red lipstick girl but my opinion is slowly changing.. 
I even have another red lipstick to share with you soon ;)

What do you think?


  1. I love the pin-up look, I did a FOTD wearing the look myself a few months ago :) This looks lovely on you, that red lipstick is gorgeous!
