My Attempt at a Valentines' Day Classic Pinup Look

For Valentines' Day this year I decided to make an attempt at the classic 'pinup' girl look, with thick, black, winged eyeliner, a neutral eyeshadow, bronzed cheeks, and a fiery red lip.

In the look below I used:
Chanel Mat Lumiere Foundation in Clair 1.0 all over face
Tarte Park Ave Princess Mineral Bronzer under my cheekbones
Urban Decay Primer Potion as a base on the eyelids
Smashbox Eyeshadow in Vapor on the eyelids
Stila Smudge Pot in Black for winged eyeliner
Stila Major Lash Black Mascara
Benefit Eye Bright Pencil for lower waterline
Stila Kitten Eyeshadow (I know it's an eyeshadow, but I love it for a highlighter!) for above the cheekbones and brow bones

For the above lip look I used Tarte LipSurgence Natural Matte Lip Stain in Fiery as a base with MAC Venomous Villains Cruella DeVil Lipglass in Wicked Ways on top for a glossy finish.
    Overall, I was happy with the look, however, I wish I would've made the winged eyeliner shorter and more curled at the edges. Have you ever tried the 'pinup' look? How did you do your makeup this Valentines'? ♥
