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.

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!)
Face:
1. Maybelline Dream Matte Powder in Honey
2. NYX Blush in Dusty Rose
Eyes:
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
Lips:
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.
