Guest Blog- Lauren Does a Pin Up Look!

Hello TruBeauty Fans! I had an overwhelming urge to shop this weekend, and in selecting my war path, I remembered Jessica's recent post about her the Balm score at TJMaxx. I had to check to check mine out.

I ended up finding the "Black Tie Kit," which contained all the fixings for a super-glam night out. I didn't own any the Balm product before this, so this kit had a great selection of products to try. For just $12.99 I got:

-2 Shady Lady Shadows (caught in the act courtney and shameless shana)
-1 Overshadow (no money, no honey)
-Hot Mama blush
-Cheater mascara
-Balm Shelter lip gloss (pin-up girl)
-Hot Ticket nail polish (Better off Red)

All full sizes!!!

Tonight I decided to try out the look outlined on the back of the box. Being a make-up amateur, I wasn't sure if I could A) pull off this look or B) accomplish it without looking like a clown. This instructions were actually very easy to follow and the look is super sexy. I really do feel like a pin-up girl without looking like a hooker and/or drag queen :)

Here's some pics:

Me without makeup. It's a little scary to me, but I think we should all wear our natural faces loud and proud every once in a while.

The kit only came with colors, so here is me with my basic base makeup. I use:
-Clinique Supermoisture makeup in Linen (02)
-Clinique All About Eyes concealer in Light Neutral (01)
-Clinique Stay-Matte Sheer pressed powder in Stay Buff (01VF)

(Yeah, I'm super pale.)

What do you think? I only lined my upper lids, but other than that I followed the directions to the letter. I love this look! It's really glamorous without being over-the-top. I like that the dramatic eye is paired with a sheer lip.

I did the nail polish too! It went on like a dream! I used Sally Hansen Miracle Cure as a base coat and American Classics In a Hurry top coat, I hope it lasts!

Overall, I am very impressed with the Balm and I can't wait to wear this look on my next date night. I may have to but some sexy pin-up girl underwear to go with it ;)

Yours in Beauty,


  1. Looks like the pictures didn't make it up, but I can't wait to see how this looked!

  2. This looks so pretty on you! You look like a bombshell without going over the top.

  3. Very pretty! Love the nail polish too! These are such a great deal at TJ Maxx, you get high end makeup for a very low cost! -Jessica
