My Make-up With Marilyn by Maria Comparetto

After watching a week with Marilyn and being mesmerised by Michelle Williams‘ performance I felt compelled to talk you through the most iconic look in history! 

The makeup has so many different interpretations but could work very well with a nude lip using Dior Addict Lipstick in Nude rather than the bright red mouth we automatically associate with Marilyn’s look. This would keep it looking modern and would best suit those with thinner lips.

The thing that really makes this look for me us not the lips though it’s the defined soft brow and taupe (‘not really there’) socket line.
Keep both these elements by defining firstly with a pencil, blending with a brush then softly intensifying using a powder of the same tone such as the SislePhyto-ombre éclat eyeshadow in Dune. This makes the eyes ‘pop’. 

Apply a micro thin liquid liner such as Dior Style Liner close to the lashes then apply black mascara on the outer corner of the lashes having curled them first with (my favourite are Shu Uemera) eyelash curlers! 

Do not apply any mascara to bottom lashes. Contour the cheekbones with a Guerlain terracotta bronzer and there you have it!

As well as the nude matt lip, another variations on this could be a cherry lip-gloss such as the Chanel 

Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in Triomphal from the Christmas Collection. (RRP £23.50)
