Tsiknopempti!!!

So yesterday was Tsiknopempti (compound word originating from the words tsikna — the smell of roast food and Pempti — Thursday) ~ taken from wikipedia ~
which is basically the official start for the carnival fest (something like Halloween) here in Greece.
I went out with my friends, dressed up as a 1940's pin-up girl, and had an amazing time.

This is the look i went for, a classic pin-up look with the signature hairstyle:






Face:
MAC SFF in NW20
MAC studio finish concealer in NW15 as an under eye concealer
MAC studio sculpt concealer in NW20 on blemishes
Manhattan Compact powder in 1

Eyes:
Dior Jazzclub Palette in No1 the light brown colour to fill and darken my eyebrows
MAC e/s in Vanilla all over the lid up to the eyebrow arch
MAC e/s in Gesso on archbone
Dior Jazz palette in No1 the light brown colour as a contour on the crease
L'oreal Paris eyeliner in Carbon Gloss
Random eyelashes from Hondos Center(a greek version of Boots)in Natural
MaxFactor False Lash Effect mascara in Black
MUFE kohl liner in white on waterline and under the flick to intensify
Erre Due eyeliner pencil in Black for the mole

Cheeks:
MAC blush in Pinch O' Peach

Lips:
MAC lip pencil in Auburn to shape the lips
Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick in No14/Passion





What I wore:


White/creme lace dress by Primark
black tights by Calzedonia
black flats from a shop in Athens(intended to go for heels but my feet would be in pain after a couple of hours so...)

So, yeah this is it. I surely enjoyed being a 40s pin-up for a few hours and had a FANTASTIC time!

What do you think? Let me know.
