Get the look: Marilyn Monroe
How to recreate Ms Monroe's sexy signature look:
1.) Create a flawless base with a long-lasting foundation.
2.) Line your upper lash line with a long-wear liquid eye liner, before carefully applying some individual false lashes to the outer corner of each eye (click here for a step-by-step guide to false lash application).
3.) While your lash glue dries, accentuate your brows with a pencil in a shade slightly darker than your natural brow shade.
4.) Using a fire-engine red lip liner, slowly define your pout, before filling in your lips with a matching red lipstick.
5.) Finish with a slick of mascara and – if you want to recreate Ms Monroe’s signature beauty spot – a dot of long-wear eye liner just above the outer corner of your mouth.
