Marilyn Monroe Contest Entry

Mz.Robyn from Fashionista514 is having a Marilyn Monroe inspired contest.
I know I DO NOT look anything like the Goddess herself.
But I have always been inspired by her beauty, her looks, pictures, fashion, etc.
So I just had to enter this contest.
I actually had a lot of fun posing in my bed! lol
So this goes out to all of the beautiful women AND bloggers out there-
You don't have to be a certain size to be beautiful.
That's what inspires me the most about Marilyn Monroe.























The Inspirational Photos

Products I used to create the look:


Skin Prep
Cosmedicine: MegaDose Serum
Cosmedicine: Medi-Matte Oil Control Lotion SPF20




Foundie's & Powder
I mixed MUFE #125 with MAC Min.Skin.Fin. NW20 and blended this out with Sonya Kashuck's Blending Sponge
Then to go over scars, pimples, etc. I used CoverFX Foundation in E40 with the same sponge
(I also used CoverFX as my concealer)
For Powder: I used my sample of Smashbox Halo in Light (lovin' this stuff!)




Highlight & Contour
NARS Albatross (cheek-bone highlight)
TheBalm Bahama Mama Bronzer (for my contour)



Cheeky-Cheeks
MAC Blush in X-ROCKS (LE from Neo Sci Fi)




EYES
BASE: MAC Soft Ochre Paint Pot
Lid: Urban Decay Matte e/s in YeYo
Crease: UD Matte e/s in Naked & MAC e/s in Symmetry (pro-shade)
To slightly deepen the crease: I used MAC e/s in Ground Brown (pro-shade)
Highlight & Inner tear-ducts: MAC e/s in Dazzlelight




Liner & Lashes
Liner: Urban Decay Liquid Liner in Oil Slick
Lashes: Elegant Lashes from Eeyelash.com #705 w/MAC dark duo lash adhesive
Finished the lashes with a coat of MAC's DazzleLash Mascara



Brows
Marilyn always had a strong, but clean brow
MAC Lingering Brow Pencil (to shape & define)
MAC Brow Set in Beguile to fill in sparse hairs (making a fuller brow shape)




Red Lips
Always use a liner when you wear a red lippie
Liner: MAC Cherry Lip Pencil
Lipstick: MAC Russian Red
Lipglass: Jampacked (for slight depth)
