Marilyn Monroe Hair & Make-up Tutorial using Bare Escentuals!

So one of my closest friends has a little obsession with Marilyn Monroe, so I have done this tutorial to see if I can do her justice. HER being, Marilyn and Kaytay! I'll let Kaytay be the judge!

As I was having a little snoop at Marilyn images I came across this one, which I think is BY FAR the best picture of Marilyn I have ever seen! She was too cute for words!

There is no denying that she was amazing. 

Here are some others I found as well...

Here was my inspiration...

1. bareMinerals Medium Beige Foundation
2. bareMinerals Bisque Concealer
3. bareMinerals Mineral Veil
4. bareMinerals Pure Radiance 
5. MAC Mylar Eyeshadow
6. MAC Brulee Eyeshadow
7. MAC Omega Eyeshadow (also used on eyebrows)
8. MAC Copperplate Eyeshadow
9. MAC Wedge Eyeshadow (uesd on eyebrows)
10. Black Mascara
11. Screenface 321 Eyelashes
12. Be Never Too Busy to Be Beautiful Liquid Eyeliner in Black
13. MAC Brick Lipliner Pencil
14. MAC Russian Red Matte

For my Hair:
1. Hair pins
2. Hairspray
3. Curling tongs!



Please check out bareMinerals at:

If you want good make-up with no cakey feeling and no added BADDIES to your make-up then go for bareMinerals. I felt like I was hardly wearing any make-up at all and look forward to getting all the eyeshadow shades as well! Whether you have dry or oily skin this can work for you. I'm SOLD!

Thanks for watching!
