So to start, here is a Marilyn Monroe tutorial because she is one of my favorite vintage inspirations and I've actually never been her for Halloween.
I started with a black and white photo of Marilyn, but I wanted to make this look more severe to really emphasize all of her famous features and because it's for Halloween. It's a bit of a mix between a regular Marilyn makeup and and a pop art Marylin with muted colors.

I started by adding the highlights. I just roughly applied them using a flat brush.

I also went over the highlights with a white eye shadow to set it and even it out.

Here is the final look. If I were really wearing this out, I would have also applied makeup to my neck to make it match my face.
