I am a huge of Marilyn Monroe and have always heard that she was an expert at applying make-up. I found this article and thought I would share:

http://teamsugar.com/group/137941/blog/197582

Apparently, she used products from erno lazslo, elizabeth arden and even cleansing oil from shu uemura Shock !

Thanks for sharing - I'm not a great Marilyn fan, but have to admit her makeup knowledge is incredible!

Skinaddicted-I love MM and her makeup. I found that link fascinating-most of her techniques are still in use today-unfortunately, I haven't found a red lipstick that I can wear due to my reddish hair.

Gee! I had forgotten how much I miss Marilyn Monroe! Crying or Very sad

I have always been fascinated by her ... possibly because I recall vividly the day they found her dead in her home! Shock I was heartbroken!

Thanks for the article link!

She was such a lovely looking woman ... although I often preferred her look without makeup. I don't know how much touch-up they did on photos in those days ... but her skin looked flawless!

The eyeliner/white highlighter tip sounds interesting, but 5 colors of lipstick? I am lucky if I have time to use lip liner AND lipstick. Anymore, it's a sweep of gloss and I'm done. Maybe if I had 1 1/2 hours to do my make-up, but who am I kidding--my kids or my dog (don't get grossed out--he's a sneak attacker) would just kiss it off.

Thanks! I have always wondered how that girl looked so hot. In fact I thought she never wore much makeup so to find out she took hours is a bit heartening. The lower eyeliner trick is interesting; will try that. I think she had a certain je ne sais quoi in her look which made her such an icon.

Wow! I love the eyeliner part! I'm going to try it. It really sounds right along the lines I learned with the Lauren Hutten Face Disk Video.

I'm going to try the eyeliner part on the lower lashes with the highlighter from LH.

This was fun to read! Thanks for posting.

I wonder what Avalange would say about MM using Vaseline? Laughing

what a fun thread--thanks!

I have a "tip" to add:
Most people don't look at all good with eyeliner that runs from corner to corner across the upper lid. It worked for MM because she had such large, deep, wide set eyes.
For those of us without kate moss or MM's eyes, the best trick is to line on EITHER side of the iris only, meaning from the corner to the top of the iris, and from the top of the iris on the other side to the outer corner, getting a bit heavier towards the outer edge of the eye if you want a cat-eye look. THEN line the INSIDE of your eye (underneath the eyelashes) to pull it all together. Sometimes I even dab with a very fine brush some pigment anywhere where there might be skin color left at my lash line. This trick works WONDERS, and saves those people who thik they can't wear eyeliner. I hope someone will try it and corroborate what I'm sayin'!
for instance:

Back then, there weren't many options as far as emollients went! I just think that now since we are much older and wiser, we should use the best options available to us. but to each her/his own! my mom uses vaseline religiously on her skin, and she does look great.

but hey, I think layering vaseline and powder is a GREAT way to get SUPERIOR coverage! No wonder she needed the heavy duty cleansing oil! Wink

This is such an interesting thread! It was great to gather a few new (old) tips, and to find out how celebs managed such great make-up effects when the products were so limited!! I do remember though when the Laszlo products were the HG of the day!!! Very Happy

wow Mary! I was just watching my documentary dvd of Marilyn's final days and they said that many people were devastated when they had announced her death and the amount of women who sympathized with Marilyn was astounding since it was assumed that she largely had appeal for men only. that must have been so interesting.

isn't it interesting how brands have their boom and busts? never thought of erno lazslo as being all that big but then again i don't much about the company at all.

avalange--that's a really nice recreation. as a marilyn fan, i say your eyes looks like hers when you do it that way. awesome job!

i won't have time to play around to achieve Miss Monroe's look for a while but i hope everyone else enjoys the thread and you're welcome of course Smile .

Kristen~

Hi K,

Actually, I took those pictures months ago, just to show myself what my eyelashes were looking like after Revitalash. I decided to glam it up that day, and didn't really think about taking pics until afterwards--hence the not-so-precise job on the liner. so I didn't actually MEAN to try to look like MM, but wow that's such a compliment. I look absolutely nothing like her!

She was indeed a goddess in more ways than one. Since I'm a total glamourpuss and love to feel sexy (I'm talking garter belts and fine stockings, cashmere pencil skirts, shelf bras, ettc...) AND I'm a bookworm, my favorite period of MM's life is when she became all intellectual and married Arthur Miller and wore thick black rimmed glasses. She made reading literature very sexy!

Your eyes are beautiful.

Got to try the tip about using the white between the upper and lower lashes.

I don't think I can put Vaseline on my face. My face is oily enough as it is Exclamation

Avalange, I am confused by your post about not lining the entire eye:

If you line your eye from the corner to the top of the iris and then from the top of the iris to the outer corner, doesn't that make it the entire eye? Do you leave a gap on the top of the iris?

hi c!

yes, I do. Then i take a fine brush, almost perpendicular to my lash line, and dot more liner right in between my lashes, where i did not line (over the iris). and use liner underneath the top lashes, just to cover all the skin-colored parts--that's the key, it's what pulls it all together.

hi lisey,

you can really use any eyeliner. in these pics i happened to use jane iredale eye shadow, the one that comes in the "day" palette. but really, it's the right brush that counts. I've been using vincent longo's #7 brush for many years with excellent results--not too fine of a line, and easy to control. I also achieve this look with lancome's liquid eyeliner pens, but i always like to go over liquid eyeliner with a tiny bit of the same colored shadow.

hth!

Avalange, When you go over the liquid eyeliner, do you wait until it's dry? what type of eyeliner do you use on the inner part of the top lid? I usually use mmu shadow moistened but have never tried it on the inner lid. Thanks.

the one i have dries instantly, i think it s called artliner. like you i just use a little mineral powder; never seems to get into my eye if i do it right. i suppose now that i think about it, liquid would work best there.
i'm hoping someone will try this technique soon and let me know if it works on them!

p.s. i think you can see better what i've done (and where i've screwed up) here:
