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!

Cute Look

Hi there! This was a look i did for school one day.  I was trying to see how big I could make my eyes look using makeup.  I have pretty large lips and eyes so manipulating the camera a bit gave me the huge doll eyes and smaller lips I wanted for the picture.  I used Retrofuturist by Lime Crime on my lips adn rubbed a bit of that onto my cheeks *this is a great tip when you have a lip color and you want a matching blush! Magic! I learned this tip from Lime Crime owner Doe Deere on her blogazine http://www.doedeereblogazine.com/* and for eyes I took a shimmery white for my browbone and inner tearduct, a silver for my lid, and a matte brown for my crease.  I took a pencil liner in black and outlined my top and bottom lashline getting larger and thicker towards the outside to create the large eye effect.  To avoid counteracting my large eye effect I avoided the inner corner of my eye. If I had smaller eyes I would have only extended the eyeliner to the middle of my eye and blended inward.  A few good coats of black lash thickening mascara and voila!

Classic Starlet Look

This look is a classic starlet look created with some Lime Crime Products.  On the lips  is Retrofuturist by Lime Crime, a bright opaque super red, it is gorgeous.   On the eyes is a simple winged line, a few coats of a volumizing mascara and silver eyeshadow by Lime Crime called Mirror Mirror, followed by LC Top Hattie on browbone.  The crease consists of a matte brown color to create depth in the eyes!
