Question ID# - 121
How do you do Marilyn Monroe's makeup step by step?
I asked Gabriela Hernandez, Founder of Besame Cosmetics (my favorite vintage-inspired cosmetics) how to recreate the sexy Marilyn Monroe look. Here are her detailed instructions:
concealer and sponge,
golden brown shadow,
white frosted shadow,
rose color blush,
and red lipstick.
Use concealer under eyes and smooth on foundation with a sponge. Use heavier
coverage if doing photography. Dust on loose powder, and use extra powder under the eyes. Use brown shadow to fill in eyebrows and arch the ends down toward the temple. Apply brown shadow on the crease of the eye and blend. Use the white shadow for the lid and brow bone. Apply a black liner close to
your lashes and slope down as you reach the outside edge. Add the false lashes and press the ends down, so the lashes droop on the ends. Use black mascara on top and bottom of the lashes. Draw a thin line with the white
shadow close to your lower lashes and a little past them. Apply the rose blush on apples of cheek and blend upward toward your temples. Sweep away the extra powder under your eyes and any excess shadow that might have fallen there. Fill in the lips with a
strong red lipstick. For more pout, dab a bit of clear gloss to the center of your bottom lip. Use the eyeliner to make a round beauty mark to complete the look!
