1950's pinup

Instead of resting up today because I'm sick, I joined Sabrina's 1950's pinup look contest. I couldn't help it, I was bored so I just did my best! I even tried to curl my hair but...alas, teh hair would not cooperate. :/ Pff.

I used:
Face The Face Shop makeup primer in green, Ellana intense coverage foundation in hazelnut latte, Ellana finishing powder in espresso con panna, Ellana blush in lust, ELF blush in glow, Aziza blush duo for highlight

Eyes PAC palette (gold, brown and black), MAC Bagatelle e/s, Elianto shimmer e/s in Ivory, Aido shimmer/glitter powder in gold, ELF brightening eyeliner in black, Elianto stay-on eyeliner in black, no-brand false eyelashes, Aido eye putty (for lash glue), Cinema Secrets mascara

Lips Revlon lipstick in Copperglaze Brown

Please ignore the splotchiness of my skin, it's my skin asthma acting up.




I know the blush looks uneven here, but I swear it's because I had a lamp coming from the other side so it caught the shimmer and made the pink disappear. O_O

Why yes, I did dress up for this!


Look, falsies! I'm so proud of myself, it only took me one try this time!! I'm starting to love falsies...I think I'm gonna get more. :D


Here I tried a few pinup poses but they didn't really work out -- hey, it's hard to take pictures on tripod you know! Plus it was so hot, I was sweating my makeup off! Not to mention I'm sick.




I know, I need to lose some weight :(

I hope you liked it! :D I had fun.

URY said...

You're not fat...u look sexy with that pinup look and white dress promise =D

Chrissy said...

@Gia - find another room? ;P If you can't use your tripod, you can just put your camera on any other solid surface. And I did look sick, my concealer just works wonders. ;)

@Cheysser - thanks for tagging me, babe! Will do it tomorrow, or whenever my next haul arrives! <3

@URY - I am fat. D: I guess those are just good camera angles for me. Lol! Thanks. I made the white dress myself! :D

Catherine said...

This is really gorgeous and elegant Chrissy!! I am so impressed! And lol, you don't need to lose weight at all, you have healthy curves! Believe me, I wish I weren't such a stick, I don't think I could ever pull of a dress like that, but you look amazing in it! Great job!

Crissy said...

I loveeee the lipstick. You pull it off so well :D

You could knit some more. It's good for stress haha.

I hate using a tripod or any surface. The pose looks good in your mind but it doesn't come out exactly right D:

p.s.

I'm going to follow!

Chrissy said...

@NicNic - Thank you, I do love red. :D

@Ida - I sure did my best! Thanks, I'm feeling better already. :)

@Karma Cee - Thanks, girl! You should try pin-up, you'd look hot! Thanks for following. :)

@Catherine - Thanks for the sweet sweet comment. :) And you would look good in a dress like that, just need a nice belt ;] and a good bra lol!

@Crissy - Thanks! Sometimes I think red is the only color that looks good on me. I will knit some more when I have the time. I know how it is with tripods and surfaces. Thanks for the follow, love!

Vanessa said...

I like the Art Deco Base! My friend from the UK sent it over to me since we don't have it (or its hard to find) here in the US. I did a review on it awhile back on my blog and I love the scent it has too!

Chrissy said...

@Vanessa - I'm really glad you liked it, I'm crazy over it! I even told my cousin to get it and she fell in love with it too. XD

Miss Yaya said...

i like the dress and no you don't need to lose weight silly rabbit!

Chrissy said...

Aw, thanks. :D And well..yes I do need to lose weight, just to get fit. :) I don't want to be wheezing for breath all the time (it's usually the case).

nikki said...

You don't need to lose weight! :) The red lippie's HOT, I like!♥ btw, adding you to my blogroll, ok?

Chrissy said...

Thanks, you're so sweet. :)

Shakira said...

Ooo. I love it :)
You look lovely - The red lipstick & red shoes = Top notch :P and you don't need to lose weight - You look good! :)

Chrissy said...

Aw, thanks! I did think those red shoes would add a nice touch. :) I love them!

Lucy said...

Found your blog on Brooke's "Getcha Nails Done". Your a gorgeous girl. Please don't say you need to lose weight. You look lovely to me. If you get out of breath you just need to exercise. No need to lose weight. I'm loving your dress and it's fantastic that you made it yourself. You should be very proud of yourself. My Mom sewed everything for me when I was growing up. I can't sew at all!

Chrissy said...

Lucy - thanks! I guess I do need to exercise. I'm walking more, now that I have summer class and my classes are quite far from each other, so that's a start.

I'm still learning to sew but I'm getting there.

Thanks for the sweet comment!

The last picture is definitely a magazine cover hit...Very glamorous and cute look and you look terrific in the dress.

Chrissy said...

Aw, gosh! -blush- Thank you!!
