Going in to the MAC Marilyn Monroe collection, I knew my goal was to incorporate the legendary look in a casual way.  My favorite photos of the late Ms. Monroe are not the glamorous glossy lipped and liquid lined celebrity, but rather the joyful and confident woman.  This is the reason I purchased the Smolder Eye Kohl rather than the Penultimate Eye Liner.  It’s also the reason I was pleased that Charmed I’m Sure is a matte shade.

I set off to compile a look inspired by Ms. Monroe, but unique to my own features.  I wanted a glowing base and the simplest of makeup.
