Nearly every makeup lover goes through a pin up makeup phase – there’s just something so compelling about the drama of a dark eye and a red lip. But just because the style is classic doesn’t mean it’s easy to pull off.
Makeup for the pin up look is very specific: you need a full-coverage base, a precise black eyeliner, and, of course, a flawless shade of red lipstick. The best products for the pin up look should also come in cute packaging, too, because getting dolled up is half the fun!
Whether you gravitate towards the playful innocence of the original 1950s face, or prefer to toughen up the look with some rockabilly flavor, here are the top pin up makeup products to add to your arsenal right now.
