How to Do Your Makeup Like Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe Makeup
From her soft voice and ample curves to her pouty red lips, Marilyn Monroe had a knack for making men weak in the knees. You can make Marilyn Monroe's makeup look your own with a few simple beauty tricks, or try it on first in our virtual makeup studio.

Marilyn Monroe's arches were amplified. Because you should never pluck your brows in an attempt to look like someone else, modify Marilyn's makeup by playing up your natural arch. Simply fill in the top part of your brows with colored powder.You can also use brow pencils to create the illusion of a slightly pointier eye brow.

Keep your eyelids bare, save for shimmery white eye shadow, applied from lashline to brow bone. Apply black liquid liner in one continuous, sweeping motion, winging it upward and outward at the outer corner of each eye (this will create the illustion of sleepy bedroom eyes). The real trick to copying Marilyn Monroe's eye makeup is in the false eyelash application. Cut full lash strips so that they are dramatically longer at the ends and apply them with tweezers.

Copy Marilyn Monroe's signature beauty mark by drawing a small dot just above the upper lip using a sharpened eye liner pencil in brown or black. Set your entire face with translucent powder.

Starlets such as Charlize Theron, Christina Aguilera and Katherine Heigl have attempted to pull off this pin-up inspired look with ruby red lips and undulating waves. Their look is slightly more modernized thanks to of-the-moment accessories and wardobe choices. Manipulate Marilyn Monroe's to make it your own. --Stephanie Simons

I absolutely adore Marilyn Monroe. She always seems to exude this goddess-like, sexy allure regardless of what role she stars in. This comment has been removed.
