Sharing is caring: The classic Marilyn Monroe look by Lisa Eldridge

Beautiful, vulnerable and damaged, Marilyn Monroe remains endlessly fascinating though it's been almost 50 years since she passed away. We know both too much and too little about this enduring Hollywood icon who famously said, "All I want is to be loved, for myself and for my talent." We still love you Marilyn, and I think we always will. So today I wanted to share this fantastic video from makeup maestro Lisa Eldridge which is, I think, one of the best I've seen on recreating the classic Marilyn look.

I LOVE Lisa's videos and I found this one so interesting! I loved the little history lesson as she did the make up and the reasoning behind everything. Definitely one to watch!
