Brief Bio: Anne Marie grew up in San Diego, where she enjoyed sunshine and warmth all year long. After almost 10 years in the Bay Area, she is still adjusting to Northern California weather! She loves the Bay Area though and is here to stay, but she says she will always be a So Cal girl at heart. She loves food — especially sushi — and enjoys hanging out at home with her fiance and their pet bunny, Buckaroo.
Anne Marie wanted a celebrity look, so I picked Marilyn Monroe as my makeup inspiration. Marilyn Monroe’s makeup falls in the 1950s decade makeup style, such as subtle eye shadow with shimmery white on the center lid, false lashes, and red lips with the outer corners filled in.
I also made a fake mole on her cheek to add a fun beauty mark to this look. I placed the mole on the same side of her face as Marilyn Monroe’s mole. Anne Marie told me about how she used a pencil to make a fake mole for fun when she was younger. I like to make moles three dimensional so that they look more realistic — it takes a little longer to do than a pencil, but it has a very natural look to it. Here’s an action shot of me making the mole and a close up of the finished product:
Anne Marie was the last person I worked on at the makeover event. My sister Wyette curled her hair, and I quickly rolled and pinned a few sections of her hair so that she could have a last minute pin-up look.
