You are very beautiful but none of the makeup techniques you used are what Marilyn used. Not even close. The black eyeliner and lashes look like something off of a cheap doll. Research what she actually did. For instance she never used full eyelashes. She used demi or took fake eyelashes and cut them in THIRDS and used on theouter part of her lids. The eyebrows not even close. The eyes look garish and painted. She rarely wore blood red lipstick instead she opted for super dark pinks. Cherry blossom (not Cherries in the Snow) was one by Revlon lipstick. She had some interesting techniques worth looking into for accuracy.
