MAC Bronze, Tempting & Contrast Pin Up Look

Hello Followers!
I am sorry that I have been MIA lately, I've been very busy doing wedding makeup & working.
This is from a few weeks ago, I was doing makeup for a photo shoot & playing photographer assistant for the day. I'll post a few pictures of the model when I get the pictures back.
I used UDPP as a primer, I applied MAC All That Glitters to my eyelid. I used MAC Tempting on my crease & MAC Bronze on the outer corner. 
For me, a pin up look is based on the eyeliner. I like to do a very precise cat eye with liquid liner, usually black or dark brown. It took me years to figure out how to work with liquid eyeliner, I started by using gel liner & a very small angled brush & then worked my way towards using liquid liner.
A better view of the eyeliner. This is Maybelline Lash Stiletto Liquid Eyeliner in Blackest Black. Hands down, my favorite eyeliner, I just wish it was waterproof! I do not use tape ( I get this question all the time). I draw a straight, thin line across my eyelid, then wing it out on the corner. I connect the two lines and fill in the rest.
I used MAC Contrast under my lower lash line. I always us MAC Fluidline first, in either Blacktrack or Dipdown then set it with an eyeshadow color. If it's a warm color, I use Dipdown (brown) if it's a cool color, I use Blacktrack (black). 
Here's how I wore my hair. This was REALLY easy, my hair was already wavy from the previous day. I took my bangs & twisted them to get a bump or poof, then I bobby pinned that section. Next, I took a teasing brush & combed my sides as slick as possible. My hair is very thick so I used a clip to help keep the pony tail high. I also teased it to get some volume. Next, I sprayed it with a very strong hold hair spray and tied the bandanna in.  I got so many compliments & it took me less than 10 minutes!
Thanks for reading & have a great night!
