She is a beauty and style icon, famous for her blonde hair, big red lips and that beauty mark.
I'm going to show you a few beauty products that I use to create the Marilyn Monroe pin-up moviestar look! I genuinely own all these products and use them in creating the pin-up look I wear most days, I just didn't have time to photograph them!
The classic red lipstick for beauty addicts the world over. Miss Monroe's favourite lipstick was a Guerlain red, but if MAC had been around in the 50s, I bet Marilyn would've worn Russian Red. A favourite of modern pin-up and burlesque star Dita Von Teese its perfect for creating the look.
Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette:
Marilyn always wore lots of champagne coloured eyeshadows, with a darker brown in the crease. The Naked 2 palette is perfect for creating a pin-up eye look.
Rimmel Glam' Eyes Liner:
No Marilyn Monroe make up is complete without black 'cat eye' eyeliner, and of course, her famous beauty spot!
Sleek Brow Kit:
All 50s pin ups and actresses had extremely well groomed brows. Use Sleek's Brow Kit for perfect brows.
Illamasqua Powder Blush in Tremble:
Pink cheeks are a staple in the pin-up look. Use Tremble sparingly for a sheer flush of colour!
Katy Perry for Eyelure 'Oh Honey!' Lashes:
Popstar Katy Perry is another example of a modern day girl who loves the pin-up look! These lashes in 'Oh Honey!' are perfect for creating big bambi eyes.
These products should have you looking fabulous like Marilyn! I hope you enjoyed this post, I'll leave you with one of Marilyn Monroe most famous performances, from my favourite film, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes:
