Marilyn Monroe Tutorial

Marilyn Monroe has been an icon for classic beauty. I was inspired by her look for a Pinup/burlesque Contest going on at Mon Ennui Cosmetics.  Below is a tutorial on how to achieve her timeless look.

Face:

1.  Conceal and use a foundation that you like, I used L’Oreal True Match in C1.

2. Set with powder on a Kabuki brush for a flawless finish!

Eyes:

1. Fill in your brows and try to create an arched shape, you can use a photo of Marilyn to help you out.

2. Apply a pale shimmery white/offwhite to the whole eye area.  I used Mon Ennui Cosmetics Antique Pearl, a pearly shimmery highlighter color in an off white ( https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=221094364635633&set=a.196849527060117.47267.179910115420725&type=3&theater Photo of it here).

3.I then took a metallic silver and applied it to the whole lid area and extending it to the inner corner and under the eye. I used Mon Ennui Cosmetics Slipper a high shine metallic silver (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=209697792441957&set=a.196849527060117.47267.179910115420725&type=3&theater Photo here).

4.  I took a matte brown and lightly at first, drew a crease higher than my natural crease to create a large eyed illusion, similar to Marilyn in photos.  I used the same brown that I filled my brows in. Darken this area as needed to create a sharp darkened crease for depth.

5. Take eyeliner of your choice, I used Milani’s liquif’eye liner in black and created a thin line on the upper lashline and extending it out to a small cateye.  A good reference on how far you should go is to meet the brown shape you made in the crease area.

6. Take a brown color and using a liner brush accentuate the lower lashline.

7. Use a mascara of choice and use a few coats to get large lashes, add false ones if desired.

Lips & Cheeks

1.  Use  a liner to fill in your lips to get the desired shape. I already have very full lips so I just filled in my natural lashline but you can alter yours to be like Marilyn’s or create any lipshape you want.  Fill in with the pencil.

2. Using a lipbrush or straight from the tube, apply a red lipstick (Monroe used reds with a more orange undertone but choose whatever red fits your mood!) I used Besame’s Red Hot Red, a replica of Monroe’s favorite color! Clean up the edges with concealer/foundation for a crisp bold lip!

3. Take a small amount of the same lipstick and apply to the cheekbone area and BLEND!

4. using liquid liner you can either make a fake beauty mark, or accentuate a beauty mark that is already on your face (like I did!) I personally like to accentuate a beauty mark that I already have, it makes each look different in my opinion!

Accessories

1. Curl your hair or use a wig!

2. Add flashy diamonds (they are a girls best friend!)

3. Add a sassy dress!

4. Rock a smile!

I hope you guys liked this tutorial!  And head on over to Mon Ennui to make a pinup/burlesque look of your own!

Colorful Winter Wonderland Submission and Tutorial

When I think of a colorful winter wonderland, I think of pastels and metallics.  The spatter of color is reminiscent of the way snow flakes fall on you when you are walking around on a fresh winter day. The lashes are coated in white also representing snowflakes collecting there during a snowstorm! The pastel colors are from the inspiration of a sunrise on a winter day with snow around, everything is softened so dramatically with the snow in its presence. The rhinestones are representative of the way fresh snow glistens when the sun reflects off of the ground.

For this look I went very organic with shapes and soft blended colors in the lips and eyes to obtain a seamless mesh of pastel colors to represent the way the sky blends colors.

How the look was created :

Face: L;Oreal true match foundation in c1 Alabaster all over face blended well.  Lime Crime Magic Dust Shadows in Mirror Mirror *silver*, Empress *dark purple*, Twilight *pale purple*, Mon Ennui Cosmetics shadow in Gold Digger *mustard gold* tapped onto face for spattering pattern.  Apples of cheeks has Mon Ennui Cosmetics shadow in Fairytale *pink gold*

Eyes: Wet application of Dark Heart Designs shadow in Jadis *white silver duochrome with aqua sparkles* all over eyes.  Using the BH 120 color palette, I took a matte dark magenta/purple and applied to the crease, extending to part of the browbone.  Took another color from the BH palette a periwinkle and applied to the outer browbone section, blending with the magenta.  Took an pale aqua from the BH palette and applied to inner part of eye.  Took Dark Heart Designs shadow in Absinthe and applied to center of lid.  I then took the blue colors from the BH palette and colored my brows. Took Milani Liquif’eye liner pencils in black, silver, and gold.  I created a large wing on the top lid with black and brought it under the eye.  The silver was placed in the inner corner of the eye, extending into a point where the nude crystals from Mon Ennui Cosmetics were placed. The silver was also brought out to where the second crystal was placed.  The gold was used to accentuate the tear duct area.  Lash Stilletto by Maybelline was used in 3-4 coats on lashes and while wet, Mon Ennui Cosmetics eyeshadow Lina Blanche was patted onto lashes thickly * a white with pale purple undertones*

Lips: Lime Crime Opaque Lipstick in D’liliac on outer lips, then applied Lime Crime Opaque Lipstick in Airborne Unicorn to center lip.

I hope you enjoyed my look! I had a lot of fun pushing my creativity to make this look! XO
