All images from nifties fifties. My love for marilyn would never cease, somehow she seems to have this inner grow from her face, like a light switch had turn on within her.
I read her biography once, she used to be doing make up and hair all by herself, and put vaseline on her face as a primer generously. Apparently that is how she achieve all the light reflections hit on all angles on her face. To imagine the movies star to do their hair and make up themselves these days is simply far to rare. She guarded her make up method very seriously, and would not be seen without it for public appearance. I just love her confidence on her own skill, she is definitely a self made star.
