Although it’s very difficult to get all the exact details as her make-up artist never betrayed her secrets, it’s fun to talk about the tricks and details of Marilyn’s make-up. Marilyn had lots of different looks and was pretty natural most of the time (especially in her everyday life) but this video concentrates on the very glamorous look she had for her movie poster shoots from 1953 through to the end of the 50s. Lots of the tricks were geared towards the lighting, film and camera lenses of the time. I’m creating an ‘illustrative’ version inspired by her most glamourous and made up look. Its just a bit of fun, hope you enjoy it! x

I can’t guarantee that all of the make-up and skincare products I recommend will suit you. I only use products I personally think are good having tried them on myself and my clients but everyone’s skin is different and it’s possible to be allergic to anything. Wherever possible, test products out on yourself before purchasing.

I only feature products I like, or want to try. The products I use in these videos are either purchased by me or sent to me by make-up companies to use in my professional capacity as a make-up artist for fashion and celebrity photo shoots, red carpet etc. I am also sent products by many of the top magazines to judge for awards.

I do not accept payment and am not sponsored to make any of the films on this channel. Some of the links under the videos and blog posts on my site are affiliated however and as stated before, I only feature products I like, or want to try.
