What exactly is a pin-up workshop?


Well, it’s an event created to teach you how to play dress-up. Where heavy makeup, fun clothes, and posing is a must. The day started with makeup, this process took about an hour and a half to complete. Beginning with heavy foundation to give the skin a flawless appearance, dark eye lined upper lids with very exaggerated fake eyelashes, colored in eyebrows, pink cheeks, and a very bright red lip. After makeup, hair. My hair took about an hour, due to me having to curl it. My friend was kind enough to help me with the victory rolls. I like how she put them more to the side, as apposed to the middle, it helped me to know which way to angle my body toward the camera. If you get an itch to take yourself back in time, here is a tutorial on how to do the victory rolls. Next, wardrobe, the style was geared toward the 50′s. I had brought a dress that I wore during Christmas that had that vintage feel and paired with sparkly silver/gold heels. The photo shoot only lasted a few moments, I was able to give the perfect pose about the 5 picture in. I was anxious to get away from the camera. I won’t give away the props in the photo shoot, I plan on gifting it to my hubby for his birthday. I will say it was very conservative/sexy and I was taken back in time. Doing this workshop left me feeling very beautiful and inspired to explore different styles and looks and to play with makeup more.
