Celebrity Makeup: Marilyn Monroe
I can never think of any woman I know who is not familiar with Marilyn Monroe, even her name strikes a cord of your memory when you hear the name Marilyn Monroe is an icon, and even if she passed at an early age, people still remember her and even copy her style. Just recently a film about her ‘My Week with Marilyn’ was shown all over the world that brings the memory of her back. Marilyn was played by Michelle Williams and after this movie was shown it is not surprising that there are lots of ladies who wore her famous look (and even posted how to videos on Youtube or on their beauty blogs) in tribute to her.
Marilyn’s makeup is classic and simple, yet you need the confidence to give it justice and bring it to life the way Marilyn did. To get this look, you need to start with a fresh and clear face to have that flawless finish. It’s better to apply primer and go on with your usual foundation and concealer routine, and dust your face with a translucent powder to have that matte effect which is the best option for this look. Groom and give your eyebrows a defined and high pointed arch by using a soft brown brow liner. Apply a vanilla colored eyeshadow all over your lid and give your eyelids a very thin line using a brown eye pencil or shadow and finishing it with a subtle cat eye wing on each other corner of your eyes. Apply individual strips of faux eyelashes just on the outer corner of your lashes to emphasize the cat eye look and apply a coat of mascara. Skip the blush to have that bare look on your face and line your lips with a red lipliner, and finishing the entire look by applying a bright red lipstick. You also have the option to apply a faux mole on your left cheek with a black eye pencil to really have that Marilyn Monroe look.
