It's-a-mee, Marilyn!

I don't often watch makeup tutorials, but I happened to stumble across Lisa Eldridge's Marilyn Monroe tutorial, and I wanted to try and recreate it. I made a Marilyn tutorial at some point too, but compared to Lisa Eldrige's tutorial, my Marilyn tutorial looked like a five-year-old did it :D 
So check the link if you want to do a really good Marilyn look!

I used mainly 88 neutral palette, and MAC #34 lashes.



I used less bright lipstick (this was my LOTD), and my wig is from Hell, but I think I did quite well :D



And last but not least, pic with heavy photoshopping around the whole lip-area. I tried to smile like Marilyn, so that my teeth were showing, but my face just doesn't work like hers did. I always looked like I was heavily drunk or something, so I took a large portion of photoshop and created a new smile for me :D

  4. Beautiful recreation, you really captured the essence of her beauty without it looking too forced or weird. The wig definitely helps to sell the look too. Great job, a fabulous transformation.

  16. OMG - the more I love an icon especially like Marilyn the more I feel uncomfortable creating the look but I saw the video (link above) last week and it made me feel so more comfortable to recreate the fabulous bomb shell. You did a great job and I love reading your blog!! You're an amazing artist!!! :)
