Marilyn Monroe Inspired Look

It is Robyn's 24th birthday today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROBYN! She is one of the sweetest bloggers & she is so generous. Check out her blog here.

I did a contest entry for her Marliyn Monroe inspired contest. Here's the inspiration pic.

[Click images to enlarge]

Here's the look that I ended up with. Obviously I'm not a blonde or as light skinned as her so the colours showed up different on me.If you look close, the inspiration pic has what looks like a dark brown or black line, probably to make the eyelid look bigger. So I did the same using the darkest eyeshadow from the Sultry Smoke palette by Revlon & blended it in.
Products Used
(once again, all drugstore brands.. woohoo!)
1. Maybelline Dream Matte Powder in Honey
2. NYX Blush in Dusty Rose
3. Prestige eyeshadow in C-153 Angel
4. Revlon eyeshadow palette in 11 Sultry Smoke
5. Maybelline Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Black
6. Almay one coat triple effect mascara in 02 Black
7. Softlips lipbalm in Honeydew Melon
8. Maybelline lipstick in 360 Cherry Brown
That's the same lipstick I used for my biker babe look. I love that red!
Hope you liked the look.
