Marilyn Monroe – Iconic Make-up Look


Although it’s very difficult to get all the exact details as her make-up artist never betrayed her secrets, it’s fun to talk about the tricks and details of Marilyn’s make-up. Marilyn had lots of different looks and was pretty natural most of the time (especially in her everyday life) but this video concentrates on the very glamorous look she had for her movie poster shoots from 1953 through to the end of the 50s. Lots of the tricks were geared towards the lighting, film and camera lenses of the time. I’m creating an ‘illustrative’ version inspired by her most glamourous and made up look. Its just a bit of fun, hope you enjoy it! x Watch this video on my site www.lisae.me.uk for product links, tips and more info.
