Beauty Icon: Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe (Norma Jeane Mortenso) is one of my favorite beauty icon.
Her makeup artist Allan "Whitey" Snyder was the magic maker of her polished look from the beginning of her career until her funeral makeup. With couple of products he made her face perfect, he knew how to make everything look bigger. He used white eyeliner inside the eyes and in the outer corner of her eyes, this made her eyes open up more. With dark brown eyeliner he added two little lines in the corner of her lower lid, and this gave her lashes fuller look and made her eyes look bigger. He also made her lips look bigger using lip liner over her real lip lines.
