How to Create a Marilyn Monroe Makeup Look

Get Marilyn Monroe's Sexy Makeup Look


We're happy to present this article from one of our favorite sites, Real Beauty.

We know Marilyn Monroe's the epitome of sexy glamour, reducing men to jello, and so on and so forth, but it's nailing the look we're most inquisitive about. Thank goodness a gloProfessional makeup artist, Kate McCarthy, was thoughtful enough to whip up this quick face chart outlining what to do to copy Miz Monroe's classic bombshell makeup.

For the eyes, she suggests using a shimmery white like Diamond in the inner corner and contouring with a warm, sandy brown like Twig. Finish it up with a swipe of cream eyeliner on the upper lid only. Try blush in an apricot hue, like Sandalwood, and finish with a generous swipe of lipstick in classic red. And just like that, you're ready to sidle on up to the hottest dude at the bar and purr something along the lines of, "Happy birthday, Mr. President." If he looks confused, don't worry—he's just wondering who is this sex goddess that strolled up.
