Halloween Eye Series: Pin-Up EOTD

I have always been a huge fan of Marilyn Monroe. She was an amazing comedienne and in some absolutely classic movies (How to Marry a Millionaire would be one of my all-time favorites!). I also really love that whole era, so fabulous!

I thought this would be a cute look for anyone that wants to keep things fairly simple for Halloween! Add some red lipstick and fix your hair and you're a sexy pin-up girl! My inspiration was (of course) Marilyn. She had fabulous bedroom eyes as her career progressed.


True to the time period, I didn't line my lower lashline, however, I did add some black glitter to my winged liner (reflects white in this picture for some reason) to spice up the look a bit. This is a copy of one of the many pictures I used for inspiration HERE.

Here's what I used:
  • Urban Decay Primer Potion (patted all over upper lid)
  • Fyrinnae Nijiro shadow (patted all over upper lid, dabbed into inner corner, and swept along lower lashline)
  • Fresh Cosmetics Amman Black Tea shadow (swept along crease, focusing color in the center and inner portion of the crease)
  • MAC Beauty Marked shadow (blended into crease over Amman Black Tea)
  • Fyrinnae Marshmallow Puffs (blended into edge of Amman Black Tea upward towards brow)
  • Fyrinnae Snow White Shadow blended with Pixie Expoxy (created winged liner on upper lashline)
  • Black Eye-safe Cosmetic Glitter mixed with Pixie Epoxy (patted over winged liner)
  • Red Cherry Lashes #113
What do you think?  I love it and would wear it any day of the week (minus the glitter, which I don't tend to wear on an average day), but that's just me ;)
