Iconic Beauty: Marilyn Monroe
two days ago marked the 47th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe's untimely death. i don't know about you, but i think she is the icon of beauty that can never be matched, duplicated or replaced. to celebrate the life of hollywood's golden girl, you can always find inspiration with these timeless tips!
flawless skin: Marilyn always had a flawless, radiant complexion. to get ready for your close up, try Per-fekt Skin Perfection Gel. this three-in-one primer, foundation and color corrector gives skin a matte, air-brushed look.
blushing bombshell: never afraid to act the innocent, Marilyn knew the power of a subtle blush. to get a "just-pinched" look try Too Faced Brightening Blush in Pinch My Petals. the pink-mauves brighten the cheeks, forehead and chin for a perfectly pretty glow!
bedroom eyes: master Marilyn's "come-hither" look with Sue Devitt Eye Intensifier Pencil in Pointe-Noire. the rich, velvety formula creates an instant and dramatic finish in a dramatic shade of black. complete the look with Laura Geller's Full Figure Lashes Mascara-- the short and long nylon fibers combine to lengthen and thicken the look of lashes while the carbon black shade finishes off the seductive look.
perfect pout: Marilyn Monroe was rarely seen without her signature red pout. to get the look try coating lips with Michael Marcus's Lipstick in Debbie, a bold red. the classic shade stays put while the silky formula keeps lips kissable.
