The Truth Behind Marilyn Monroe’s Makeup – MUA Lisa Eldridge Shares In-Depth Details

The internet is peppered with Marilyn Monroe video makeup tutorials, but most of them only skim the surface of an art-form mastered by a makeup artist that was close to Marilyn’s heart, Allan “Whitey” Snyder.  In this video, Lisa lifts the bar with a quality tutorial appropriate for the legendary screen icon.

In UK Makeup Pro Lisa Eldridge’s newest video posted below, she drew me in, getting down to demonstrating and discussing every detail surrounding the craft of Marilyn’s iconic makeup look and taking time to properly explain the purpose behind almost every stroke.  Don’t expect to hear lots of product brand mentions as Lisa goes along transforming her model into a believable image of Marilyn because it’s really all about remembering this gone-too-soon beautiful woman and the makeup artist who knew her well.    Watch this video.
