Celebrity Inspired Makeup - Marilyn Monroe

Hi everyone. I want to start a new series where I do Celebrity Inspired Makeup Looks. To start off I will be doing a makeup look inspired by Marilyn Monroe.

I did a makeup look that I could get to look as close as possible to Marilyn's makeup but just keep in mind that it is an inspired makeup look so it does not look exact because I do not have the exact products that Marilyn uses. That being said... Lets get started!

1. Prime your eyes- I used MAC's paint pot in Soft Ochre

2. Use a skin toned color all over the lid and up to the brow bone- I used MAC's Brule

3. Next, I used a light brown color in the crease to add dimension- I used MAC's Soft Brown

4. Now used a darker brown color and apply it to the outer corner- I used MAC's Brown Down

 5. Now use a liquid eyeliner to create a winged line like MArilyn has- I used Revlon Colorstay (a felt- tipped)

6. Mascara Time!

7. Now line your lips with a red color- I used ELF's Bitter

8. Next, use a red lipstick and apply it to you lips- I used Shiseido's Berry Sheer

I hope you enjoyed and leave a request in the comments for another celebrity inspired makeup look. If you want a specific look leave the link in the comments!
