Get this Look! Modern Day Marilyn Monroe Makeup

One of my most favorite shoots ever!  We used the Dolce and Gabbana with Scarlett Johansson ads as our inspiration to create these Marilyn Monroe - ish pictures.  Kristina Lindenburg was absolutely the best model for this.  She easily captured the subtle sexiness that we were going for!  With the right lighting and photography from Cole Garcia of Shin Kicker Studios and hair by Stacey Barton, Makeup by me, it was a winning combination! 

An easy way to get this look:

Eyes-  This is a glamed up 50's version.  So we didn't go skimpy here.  We used MAC All that Glitters eyeshadow all over the lid and MAC Espresso eyeshadow in the outer v and the crease.  Add drama with bold black eyeliner and false eyelashes.

Lips- Go with a dark berry look.  Here we used MAC Lipstick in Rebel.

Face- Keep the foundation Matte looking and add a very soft berry pink blush.  We used Mary Kay Strawberry Cream blush. 

Tip:  Make sure to fill in the brows for a slightly bold look.
