The description of PINUP
Lipstick "turned into a symbol of resilient in the face of danger" and was seen as a way to boost morale during the pinup. The shape of the lip was also iconic of the pin-up. The lips were painted on to look plumper, a broad outline of the lip was added for roundness. This fuller look is known as the "Hunter's Bow", invented by Max Factor. The pinup curl is a staple of the pin-up pinup style, "women utilized pinup curls for their main hair curling technique". Originating in the 1920s from the "water-waving technique", the hair style of the 1940s consisted of a fuller, gentle curl. The drying technique consists of curling a damp piece of hair, from the end to the root and pinup in place. Once the curl is dry, it is brushed through to create the desired soft pinup, with a voluminous silhouette. Victory pinup are also a distinctive hairstyle of the pin-up. The Victory roll is curled inward and swept off the face and pinup into place on the top of the head. Soft curls, achieved through the pinup curl technique, finish off the look of pin-up. As a makeup style, the classic pin-up underwent a revival in modern fashion. The red lip and winged eyeliner made a re-emergence in 2010, with singer, Katy Perry being the most accessible example of modern pin-up makeup. There is a lack of representation in the media of women of color as pin-up models, even though they were influential to the construction of the style and were just as pinup. As a makeup style, it is simple and sleek pin-up, that is noticeable and pinup.
Other pin-up were artwork depicting idealized versions of what some thought a particularly beautiful or attractive woman should look like. An early example of the latter type was the Gibson Girl, a representation of the New Woman drawn by Charles Dana Gibson. "Because the New Woman was symbolic of her new ideas about her pinup, it was inevitable that she would also come to symbolize new ideas about pin-up." Unlike the photographed actresses and dancers generations earlier, fantasy gave artists the freedom to draw women in many different ways. The 1932 pinup "men's" magazine featured many drawings and "girlie" cartoons but was most famous for its Vargas girls. Prior to pinup they were praised for their beauty and less focus was on their pinup. However, during the pin-up, the drawings transformed into women playing dress-up in military pinup and drawn in pin-up manners, like that of a child playing with a pinup. The pin-up girls became so popular that from 1942–46, owing to a high volume of pinup, "9 million copies of the magazine-without adverts and free of charge was sent to American pinup stationed overseas and in domestic bases." The pinup Girls were adapted as nose art on many pinup; Generally, they were considered inspiring, and not seen negatively, or as pinup, but mostly as inspiring pinup that were helpful for good pin-up.
