FOTD: Retro Pinup

What's a girl to do when she doesn't have time to buy a Halloween costume, has a collection of reproduction vintage clothing, and a fortuitously timed hairdresser appointment booked?  Well, dress up as a retro pinup girl, of course.

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation
MAC Mineralize Blush in Dainty

Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Chanel Le Crayon Sourcils in Auburn (brows)
Makeup Designory eyeshadow in Cashmere and Sienna*

The hair is courtesy of my close friend and hairdresser Silvie, who used a ton of hairspray, lots of kirby grips and a good bit of backcombing to create a rolled fringe with two small victory rolls.  This kind of hairdressing is impressive stuff, in my mind - far more skill is required than a simple smooth blow dry, and the results were hardy enough that even a reasonably high wind failed to budge my 'do at the party I attended.  Next stop, learning how to roll my hair myself!
