But where did Military Pinup come from? And why is it so popular?

Well, although pinup girls have been around since way back in the 1980s, they first started becoming popular with a mainstream audience in the 1940s when soldiers used to ‘pin up’ pictures of beautiful woman to boost their mood and given them a reason to come home.

During this period, pinup girls represented everything a woman aspired to be and many pinup models were positive role models, just like they are today. But that’s not all, during World War II, pinup models served as morale boosters, mascots, and good luck charms for troops fighting in the war.

This is why many of the images during this era were staged to show support for the boys at war. With this in mind, it wasn’t unusual to see girls dressed head to toe in military themed attire as they posed seductively for naughty magazines, pictures, and calendars.

Today, the military look is more popular than ever before. As a symbol of sexuality and freedom, it’s an iconic trend that has continued to influence the way woman are viewed throughout history and, as a result has become one of the most popular pinup looks, all these years on.

And it’s not just about the military attire, knowing how to achieve the perfect winged eyeliner and victory curls is a huge part of nailing the ultimate military look. Other trademark make up techniques include pink blush, arched eyebrows, pastel eye-shadows, contouring and highlighting, and of course, a red lip.

Some of the most famous models during this period-included Gina Lollobrigida, Kim Novak, Bettie Page, Jane Russel and Fernande Barrey.
