One of the most iconic faces of pop culture knew precise makeup techniques: Quoting Marilyn Monroe’s makeup artist, Allan Whitey Snyder: “Marilyn had makeup tricks that no one had or knew. Most of them she didn’t learn from me. She discovered it herself”. In fact, Marilyn did her own makeup for many occasions. Photographer Sam Shaw talked about one day while she was getting ready. “I asked her: ‘Marilyn, don’t you think that this makeup is a little too much?.’ 'Sam, you don’t understand’, she answered: ’This make-up is for my fans, those people waiting inside the movie houses, or outside on the street waiting in the crowd at an opening. They are the people the studios won’t let close to the theatre unless they pay to get in. When I arrive there I’ll turn to wave to them and they’ll see me and won’t be disappointed. My fans want me to be glamorous. I won’t disappoint them.’                                                                                                          

Skin: Marilyn liked her skin with a flawless finish, but yet glowy - you note in many picures that her cheeks, tip of the nose, and under brow area are glowing, she liked the effect that it gave, especially with the studio lights

Eyes: Marilyn expanded her eye crease by overdrawing it with brown eyeshadow. Her eyeliner was not too thin or huge, and it always gave the classic cat eye effect. She also drawn with brown pencil a line in the under eye area to fake a 'shadow’. She prefered individual fake lashes, applying them in a way to maintain the shape that she wanted for the eyes. She also arched her brows with eyebrow pencil.

Lips: By far, the most iconic part of Marilyn’s makeup are her lips. As you can see in her makeup free pictures, they were by far not as plump as they appeared to be. Marilyn always overdrawn her lips, (so did almost all the other female stars on that time period), but she had a especial trick - Marilyn used at least 4 different colors of red lipstick to create a 3D effect; the lighter shades on the center of her lips, and the darker ones on the edges. She applied vaseline to finalize the glossy and plump effect. Her beauty mark was not fake, in fact, you can slightly see it in the makeup free picture - but it’s not as noticeable because it was almost the same color of her skin, so she enhanced it with makeup.  

“One can never wakeup in the morning, wash the face and look like Marilyn Monroe. She knew every trick on the book to compose her look” Photographer (and Marilyn’s friend) Milton Greene

tag yourself as movements in classical music
  • Medieval: often ignored, shy, secretly gay, likes to stay in the same place all the time, dreams of being a monk
  • Renaissance: loves to dance, likes fancy things (but not too fancy), nobody else could pick them out in a crowd but everyone is friendly to them
  • Baroque: very particular about everything, draws immensely detailed doodles, gets super side-tracked on pointless tangents, everyone's distracted dad friend
  • Classical: very neat bedroom, makes bad puns constantly, has a 9-5 job, everyone's helpful but slightly exasperated mom friend
  • Romantic: can never make up their mind about anything, gets shivers when they go to art museums, cries a lot (and you'll know about it), sad bisexual (TM)
  • Impressionist: super gay, loves music that isn't in their native language, cries easily, just wants to have a good time
  • Early Modernist: just like Romantic but also does drugs and is afraid of but also super interested in sex
  • Serialist: angry at everything, "you don't understand my torment", probably a communist
  • Neoclassical: wants to be just like classical but has never gone to sleep before 1AM, keeps a very neat bedroom except for a single massive pile of clothes in the closet they refuse to acknowledge, occasionally steals Renaissance's hoodies
  • Total Serialist: 500% angrier than serialist and proud of it, has never had fun, has probably killed someone
  • Academic Avant-Garde: has never done the same thing twice, trusts nobody else, has an on-again-off-again relationship with total serialism
  • Minimalism: loves technology, still wears Google Glass and the Apple Watch, meditates for fun, trying to learn Hindi (and horribly failing), often incomprehensible to everyone else but is actually super friendly
  • Polystylism: originator of the term "pastel grunge", wears immensely clashing outfits, steals everyone's looks, memes

Classical music listening tips:

- Just because it starts off slow and pretty doesn’t mean it’s not going to get seriously intense later on. In fact, there’s probably more of a chance.

- Most pieces average about 8-15 minutes long. Entire symphonies can last roughly an hour, but you can always find separate movements. Be patient and wait. Even if you already know it and just want a specific part, just enjoy the build-ups, man. 

- There’s all kinds. Anything from dark Russian waltzes to peppy English marches, to thousands of symphonies by various composers. Even if you don’t like a certain tone, there’s always more and if you find something you like, and if you listen on YouTube, the recommendations are pretty good at linking similar styles.

- Non-lyric stuff is great for studying, relaxing, or just spacing out.

- In the quiet parts, try to avoid turning up the volume too loud (but of course if you need to, then 2 clicks or so should do), unless you want to jump a foot out of your seat when the dynamics suddenly change.

- Cool stuff to get you started that you might recognize from cartoons or movies or something:

Johann Strauss II - The Blue Danube Waltz , Tchaikovsky - Waltz of the Flowers , Verdi - Aida - Grand March , Vivaldi - Four Seasons , Pachelbel - Canon in D Major , Frederic Chopin - Nocturne In E Flat Major, Op.9 No.2 , Gioachino Rossini : The Barber Of Seville - Overture , Rossini - William Tell Overture Final

- “But it’s so boring and quiet and slow!”

Well, there’s always the ones who skip the intro, if you’d like that better:

Khachaturian - Masquerade Suite - Waltz , Franz Schubert - Marche Militaire , Johannes Brahms - Hungarian Dance No. 5 , Mozart-The Marriage of Figaro , Wilhelm Richard Wagner-Flight of the Valkyries

- It’s not just old, dead guys either- there’s cool modern stuff too:

Blue Shades - Frank Ticheli , Into the Storm - Robert W. Smith , Equus By Eric Whitacre , The Hounds of Spring - Alfred Reed

- A few pieces I personally like:

George Gershwin - An American in Paris , Dmitri Shostakovich - Waltz No. 2 , Rossini - The Thieving Magpie Overture , Franz Liszt - Hungarian Rhapsody No.2 , Bach - Air on G String , Prokofiev - Dance of the Knights , Shostakovich - Symphony No 7 in C major, Op 60 - Gergiev , Gustav Holst - The Planets, Op. 32 , Mussorgsky - Pictures at an Exhibition , Tchaikovsky - 1812 Overture

- I can’t even really think of every piece I like just off of the top of my head right now. There’s just so much out there! So go out there and listen, and have fun.

  • Hermes: stupid adulting
  • Dionysus: yeah it sucks, but at least I can buy wine so it all comes out in the wash

Ah, the carnival... so many fun attractions to go on!

First, check out the merry-go-round, and treat yourself to an ice-cold…

…“Clused Pop!

They come in three flavors: chary, leem, and opal.

Next, prepare yourself for the wacky thrills…

…of the Fun Hose!

We don’t know exactly how this virtual world designed to be the best amusement park possible managed to lose a sign letter, but we suspect the clown entrance ate it.

After that, consider running from the jaguar-headed ape thing straight into…

…the “Foature” tent!

Warning: sign may change later to properly read “fortune” in closeups when the animators finally notice.

And last of all, when you’re tired of the boardwalk, come on down to everyone’s favorite – the classic, the unforgettable…

…”Fun.

Do you eat it? Play it? Ride it? Is it full of kittens? In all honestly, we have no idea, but there’s a good chance it’s illegal.
