MAC Marilyn Monroe Collection Inspired FOTD



Hey Guys!
I was looking for face charts online for the MAC Marilyn Monroe Collection and came across the one featured at the side. I thought this was a gorgeous look inspired by the late and great Marilyn Monroe. There wasn't a list of products used, but I'm sure at the store they have those details. I ended up improvising and using products I already had in my makeup collection, in addition to products that I purchased from the new collection. It feels like it has been FOREVER since I've featured a Face of the Day on my blog, but these are definitely my favourite posts to do! I hope you enjoy this look as I really enjoyed recreating it!



It's funny because in some photos my face shape is ALMOST like the face shape in the MAC face chart! LOL Also, red lips really bring out my green eyes...I feel I look like Christmas, so I use to avoid red lips, but have been LOVING red lips lately!
