My Muse...

Marilyn Monroe will now and forever be one of my biggest inspirations. I believe every girl has at least once fanisiced what it might be like to be or look like her. I came across a tutorial from Kevyn Aucoin on how to do your makeup like marilyn Monroe modeled by Liza Minnelli and also some of Marilyn's famous beauty secrets!


Some of Marilyn's most famous beauty secrets...

Used Nivea Skin Moisturizing Lotion

Her first husband claimed she washed her face 15 times a day

When she wasn't wearing makeup, she smoothed olive oil on her face

Marilyn liked to take ice baths to smooth cellulite. She would sometimes add Chanel NO. 5 to her bathwater

Erno Laszlo was a Hungarian born dermatologist, who moved to New York in 1939, and set up the Erno Laszlo Institute specialising in beauty treatments and cosmetics. Marilyn was a massive fan, and you can still buy some of the products she used today
