Marilyn Monroe Makeup Tutorial

10 Feb

Want to resemble Marilyn Monroe? Luckily, it’s not too difficult. Needless to say having blonde hair, unbeatable charisma and a perfect figure all help, but for now let’s just focus on the make up. Here’s a simple step by step guide on how to look like the iconic fifties film-siren.

1. Eyes & Brows

  • To recreate Marilyn’s seductive gaze, eyeliner is key. Benefit’s Babe Cake eye lining kit is great for drawing a distinctive line (all you’ll need is one smooth stroke.)
  • Starting from the inner corner of the eyelid, draw along the upper eyeline, pass the outer corner and end with a feline, almost triangular flick.

2. Lips

3. Finishing touches

  • False eyelashes are optional. However, if you do decide to wear them, here’s a tip from Marilyn makeover model Aoife McIvor:

“False eyelashes are often stiff when you first purchase them. To make them more flexible and easier to apply, twist the base of the lashes around an eyeliner pencil (or any other thin tube-shaped object you have!) Trim the base of the eyelashes to suit the width of your eyelid.

Then, put some eyelash glue on a cotton bud. Using the cotton bud, gently pat the base of the eyelashes to the eyelid. Once the lashes are in place, dab more glue along the upper lash line to ensure extra hold. Remember, put false eyelashes on AFTER doing all your make up!”

  • Last but not least, don’t forget to draw on Marilyn’s infamous beauty spot with a well-sharpened black eyeliner pencil.

Thank you Aoife for being the best Marilyn possible x

    Individuals originate from families that has a lush, full head of hair
    will have their eyelashes come home during a quicker rate.
    Use the actual paint primer right to the actual
    eyelashes and also let it dry out totally before applying the
    particular mascara. Combine a Hair Supplement and Eyelash Conditioner to Encourage Fast Hair
    Growth.
