MAC Marilyn Monroe! Xx


Launching in October M∙A∙C Marilyn Monroe, 

includes Eye Shadows in shimmering metallic and diamond tones,
a dramatic 35 Lash, False Lashes Extreme, 
Lipsticks in a variety of Marilyn's signature red shades, 
and beautiful Nail Lacquers

so as the girl says:

“I said pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick,
 and pull yourself together.” 
― Marilyn Monroe


Make up was definitely Marilyn's best friend
and her routine was rumoured to take around 3 hours.

To study totally how to create the iconic Marilyn makeup look -
 the best video to watch
is on
explaining all about her long term make up artist 
Allan Snyder known as  'Whitey',
and based on the look they perfected together
towards the fifties, specifically around 1953.

Whitey was Marilyn's make up artist for 16 years,
having met her in 1946 during her first screen test for
Twentieth Century Fox.

From the Vaseline layer under the foundation 
for that youthful luminous glow of Marilyn's skin, to 
 the meticulous shading around her eyes, 
her false eyelashes, arched eyebrows,
shading, blush and highlighting on her face, 
to the five layers of red lipstick
and secret recipe of Marilyns lip gloss, 
Lisa Eldridge has all the historical facts at her fingertips.
This is an amazing makeup tutorial.

So all you have to do now is buy the MAC range
and reproduce your own Marilyn look.

Available from October.

'I am involved in a freedom ride protesting 
the loss of the minority rights belonging 
to the few remaining earthbound stars. 
All we demanded was our right to twinkle.'
Marilyn Monroe 




“Beneath the makeup and behind the smile 
I am just a girl who wishes for the world.”
Marilyn Monroe







“I don't mind being burdened with
 being glamorous and sexual. 
Beauty and femininity are ageless 
and can't be contrived,and glamour, 
although the manufacturers won't like this, 
cannot be manufactured. 
Not real glamour; it's based on femininity.”

Marilyn Monroe
