A.M. to P.M.: A Two-part Pinup Makeup Tutorial


You’ve got your 1950s-inspired A-line, patent peep toes to match, and your hair’s styled so sleek even Bettie P. would be jelly of your style! Now, all you need to secure your polished pin-up look is the makeup to match.

Lucky for you, Andie, our go-to makeup gal, has returned to teach you how to achieve both daytime and evening versions of this luscious look in a two-part tutorial that simplifies the winged eye, tinted cheeks, and that classic rockabilly red lip we all crave.


Try ‘em out, and don’t forget to show us some pics via Facebook or the ModCloth Style Exchange!

    Loved this! Is there any chance of getting names of the products that Andie used? I’d love to track down that red lipstick!

    I would also love to know the names of the products and brushes she used. I feel like that has a lot to do with how pretty everything turns out in the end. She is so talented and cute!!! I wish I could hire her to do my makeup everyday. I will try this at home!

    PS) I forgot to mention. This is one of the BEST makeup tutorials I’ve ever seen. I’m a total dud at doing makeup and I need to see everything step-by-step. Great job, and thanks!

    What fantastic tutorials. I lovethis look and never knew how to achieve it before. It would be great if these came with a shopping list so you could make sure you have l the essential ingredients.

    I don’t wear any make-up, and this is helpful, but, wow, it takes a lot of time! You look great Andie, but I’m not so sure I have the patience to do either look.

    Love this tutorial! I cannot apply eye shadow to save my life but I decided to give this look a go for my senior portrait pic and it came out great. Thanks!
