Marilyn Monroe photographed by Gene Kornman (1953) / Marilyn Monroe photographed by a fan in NYC (1955)
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

I was suddenly ripped off of him and thrown in to the wall.
“what the hell?” I said struggling to get up.
I looked up to see Liam growling at Nolan. This was all my fault.
Nolan went to get up but Liam shoved him back down.
“you may have her fooled but I can see right through to who you really are.” Liam growled.
Liam backed Nolan up in to the wall still growling at him.
“Liam.” Scott said suddenly appearing and putting a hand on his shoulder.
Liam looked to Scott and then me before storming out of the holding cell. I could tell he was angry but when wasn’t he angry. Scott came over giving me a hand up.
“are you okay?” He asked giving me a smile.
I nodded giving him a half smile. The truth was I wasn’t okay at all. Nolan told me he loved me and now I felt like I had to choose between being with him or saving my friends. I knew Scott would understand better than anyone, he was in my position once. Scott grabbed Nolan’s arm so he could be escorted to another room. I walk over picking up the vial of wolsbane.
“thanks for saving us.” Jiang said giving me a small smile.
“saving us? She was making out with the enemy that’s hardly saving us!” Tierney growled her eyes glowing for a split second.
It was only a split second but I saw them. Blue. She’s killed an innocent, exactly what we were trying to prove that we weren’t doing. I glared at her before walking out of the holding cell area. I watched them handcuff Nolan to a desk in another room and an officer was to stand by at all times and keep watch on him. What really struck me was he didn’t put up a fight, he fully complied. Scott came walking towards me giving me an apologetic look.
“check their eyes.” I said simply.
He gave me a confused look but just nodded at me before walking away. Liam stood across the room glaring at me. I took a step forward to talk to him when an arrow flew through the window before sticking in a support beam. I pull it from the wood releasing a piece of fabric. I pick it up, it’s a bloodstained number seven.
“Brett.” Liam growled grabbing the fabric from my hand.
He started breathing heavily.
“there just trying to mess with us.” Lydia said running a hand through her hair.
“It’s working.” Theo said.
Suddenly a loud scream shakes the station.
“Nolan.” I breathed running to the room he was being held in.
I walked in seeing the officer in charge of watching Nolan hanging from the ceiling, a noose wrapped around his neck. I couldn’t hear a heartbeat.
“I didn’t touch him I swear, he did that to himself. I tried to stop him but he wouldn’t stop.” Nolan cried.
I walked over wrapping my arms around him.
“I know you didn’t it’s okay.” I said running my hands through his hair.
Suddenly I look up and it’s not Nolan I’m holding but the creature with no face. I quickly let go of him falling back in terror. The creature stood up from the chair walking towards me.
“GET AWAY FROM ME!” I yelled backing up.
I couldn’t think of a time I had ever been as terrified as I was right now. The creature kept walking towards me. I quickly grabbed my belt snapping my katana in place. I got up charging at the monster holding up my sword, while commanding the fox in me to come out.
“WATASHI WA KITSUNE, AKU NO KUCHIKA-KANDA!" I yelled charging at the creature. (I am the fox, the destroyer of evil)
"Y/N STOP!” Scott roared flashing his alpha eyes.
I quickly stopped, dropping my sword. Nolan stared at me terrified. I looked around quickly but didn’t see the creature anymore, and I realized it was only in my head, the fear was playing tricks on me. I was going to attack Nolan.
“Nolan, I..” I started but he cut me off.
“GET AWAY FROM ME” Nolan yelled and tried backing away from me but he was still handcuffed to the desk.
I could feel the tears fall down my cheeks as I slowly walked out of the room. Before I could leave Scott grabbed my arm making me look at him.
“when did you learn how to speak Japanese?” He asked looking in my eyes.
“I don’t know how to speak Japanese?” I questioned confused.
“you just did, before you almost killed Nolan.” He said looking at me up and down.
Suddenly a gun shot rang hurting our ears. Scott and I turned around to see another deputy had shot herself causing everyone to rush in the room.
“get him out of here." Noah says pointing to Nolan.
Liam grabbed Nolan who looked even more terrified now.
"Nolan I’m sorry.” I cried but he wouldn’t even look at me.
“Scott we only have ten minutes until midnight” Malia said checking the clock.
“what are we going to do?” Quinn asked, tears running down her cheeks.
“I already have two dead bodies, I’m not giving Monroe two more.” Noah said running a hand over his face.
Parrish and Stilinski exited the room along with everyone but myself. I looked around the room. It seemed so real, the creature standing in front of me. Also I spoke Japanese? Kira used to do that while her fox spirit was taking over her body.
“It’s in here with us, I feel it too.” Lydia said coming to stand beside me.
“I almost killed Nolan, it was so real I could’ve swore the real creature was in here. It’s almost as if I wasn’t in control anymore.” I said frustrated.
“It’s playing on your fears, I think you’re afraid that Nolan really is bad and it knew that.” She said patting my shoulder.
I shrugged my shoulders not wanting to acknowledge that she was right. I wasn’t just afraid, I was terrified that Nolan will actually go through with the hunters. We walked out seeing the rest of the pack shoving the two dead deputies in body bags. I gave them a questioning look.
“Monroe said dead or alive, she doesn’t actually know what they look like so.” Scott explained to Lydia and I.
“Do you think it’ll actually work?” I asked.
“Hopefully.” Scott said.
“just one more thing.” Noah said before firing two gunshots.
Scott, Theo, Parrish, and Noah took the bodies outside while the rest of us crowed around the window. Maybe we could all make it out of here alive. I looked at Monroe’s face and could tell she wasn’t buying it. That’s when all of the hunters aimed their guns at Scott and Theo. I was about to run outside when we heard loud sirens and saw flashing lights. Scott, Theo, Parrish, and Noah came back inside.
“Scott what’s happening?” Liam asked.
“I don’t know.” Scott said disappointment in his face.
Rafe McCall came back in looking at all of us. I could tell what he was going to say next wasn’t going to be good.
“you all need to leave Beacon Hills.” Rafe said looking at all of us.
“what no we can’t!” I immediately protested.
“I agree.” Liam growled.
“I am not leaving.” Lydia said crossing her arms.
“look I know you guys don’t like the idea but a little de-escalation is what’s needed here, that is why you called me right?” Rafe said looking at us and then at Noah.
“It doesn’t matter if we leave, they’re just going to keep hunting us down.” Malia said.
“No they agreed to it.” Rafe said.
We all looked to Scott to help us, but so far he’s stayed silent. He was either plotting or he’s ran out of hope.
“fine, we’ll go.” Scott said looking at all of our faces.
We’re escorted out of the station all the hunters staring us down. Nolan runs out of the station immediately back to Gabe. I realized we were never going to be together. He’s already made a choice. Jiang and Tierney were dragged out of the station and put in a separate van. The hunters cleared as we went to our homes to pack our bags to leave. I walk in my house feeling nothing. I grabbed some clothes throwing them in the duffle bag. I looked up seeing the picture of Nolan and I. I grabbed it off the wall along tearing it in two. That wasn’t enough for me though. I ripped it until it couldn’t ever be put together again.
“Is that what you think of me?” A voice said from the doorway.
I snapped my head up seeing Nolan standing there. I didn’t say anything, I just went back to shoving clothes in my bag.
“I just wanted to say I’m sorry.” He said.
I quickly turned around, angry tears streaming down my face.
“sorry for what? sorry for lying to me? sorry for choosing them? Nolan it’s you I feel sorry for, because once this is all over you’re not going to have anyone left who cares.” I said shoving past him.
“I didn’t lie.” He said grabbing my arm and making me stop.
“yeah well you didn’t exactly tell the truth now did you. Nolan waiting for you is like waiting for rain in a drought, useless and disappointing.” I said jerking my arm out of his grasp.
He didn’t say anything, just stared at me.
“goodbye Nolan.” I said turning to leave again.
Nolan grabbed my arm pulling me to him before crashing his lips on mine. I quickly pulled away from him.
“No, you don’t get to just kiss me and everything goes away. I’m leaving Nolan, because of you and your friends, you don’t get to do this to me anymore. Goodbye Nolan.” I said walking towards the door.
“but I love you.” He said making me stop in the doorway.
“you don’t hurt the people you love.” I said before walking out the door.
I didn’t look back either. I was gone, physical and emotionally, just gone.
“well hello again.” The familiar voice of Tamara Monroe rung out.
Remember how I said Nolan was going to get me killed? I think he just did.
I looked up glaring at Monroe. It was only Monroe and one other guy but, they both had their guns pointed at me. I could take them, I just needed a distraction. She put the barrel of the gun right between my eyes.
“you know I always thought of myself as a bit of a psychic, I had a feeling you were going to die, and well it looks like my prediction came true.” Monroe said moving her finger to the trigger.
“HEY ASSHOLE UP HERE.”
The other hunter turned his attention to where Theo stood waving his arms. He aimed his gun emptying his rounds on him. I took this time to grab the barrel of the gun that was pressed to my head before head butting Monroe in the face. She fell backwards grabbing her bleeding nose.
“I thought you were a psychic, bitch.” I growled before kicking the gun away from her.
The man, realizing what was happening, struggled to reload his weapon. I pulled out my belt clicking it in place. I swung it in one swift motion and the hunter fell to the ground.
His head separated from his body.
I killed him.
Monroe looked in horror, as did I.
“oh my gosh.” I breathed looking at what I had just done.
A arm reached out pulling me away. I looked up at Theo dragging me back to the car we came in. Liam was in the backseat passed out. The tires squealed as we pulled away from the zoo. I stared straight ahead lost in my thoughts. That man probably had a family and I took him away from his family. Nolan was right, I really was a monster now. So many thoughts were going through my head I barely heard Theo speak up from beside me.
“are you okay?” Theo asked glancing at me.
“I killed him. I killed a man.” I said looking at him.
“you get used to it.” Theo said.
“DON’T TELL ME I’LL GET USED TO IT! OH MY GOD I KILLED SOMEONE!” I screamed.
“if you don't calm down you can join Liam in the back seat.” Theo growled.
“HOW CAN YOU EXPECT ME TO CALM DOWN? OH MY GOD SCOTT, WHAT IS HE GOING TO SAY? HE’S GOING TO KICK ME OUT OF THE PACK.” I said putting my head in my hands.
“It was self defense, theirs a difference.” Theo said.
“YOU KILL PEOPLE NOT ME!” I said breathing heavily.
“I haven’t killed anyone today. Can’t say the same for you.” Theo smirked.
He thought it was funny. This most definitely was NOT funny.
“I’m going to add you to my list if you don’t shut up.” I growled finally slowing my breathing.
“are you finally calm?” Theo asked.
I shook my head yes not really believing it myself. An awkward silence filled the car.
“oh god I’m going to throw up.” I said causing Theo to pull over.
I threw open the door releasing everything I had eaten for the past few days. The images of the man's decapitated head filled my mind making me throw up again.
“what’s going on?” Liam asked finally awakening.
“Y/N killed someone.” Theo shrugged like it was no big deal.
“YOU DID WHAT?” Liam asked shooting straight up.
“seriously would you both chill out. He was going to put a bullet through your head if you didn’t take his off.” Theo said.
“I have to tell Scott.” I said looking at my hands.
Theo sighed before making a right turn to Scott’s house. I didn’t know how I was going to tell him but I needed too. I didn’t mean to kill him, I wouldn’t want to hurt anyone. Theo pulled in to Scott’s driveway giving me an annoyed look. I got out of the car taking deep breaths. I walk inside to see Scott, Malia, Lydia, Mason, Melissa, and Chris crowded around a map.
“Scott.” I started causing everyone to look at me.
I wanted to tell him but nothing would come out. He walked over putting his hands on my shoulders.
“what happened?” He asked looking concerned.
“Scott I’m so sorry, I..” I started but was interrupted by Rafe McCall bursting through the front door.
“the guns, they’re all gone.” Rafe said looking at Scott.
“yeah we know.” Scott growled.
“No I mean they were distributed. Distributed to the citizens of Beacon Hills.” He said looking at all of us.
distributed? they were supposed to be destroyed.
“guys.” Lydia said but no one was paying attention.
“GET DOWN!” she screamed.
the first bullet shattered the window making us duck for cover but it was no use they poured in one by one. I cried out before everything became one big blur.
NOLAN’S POINT OF VIEW
“Y/N!” I screamed as she rolled down the hill.
Liam growled coming at me, I tried to move past him but he threw me back. I couldn’t see where she was and it killed me.
“Liam I have to get her!” I said
“THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT.” Liam growled coming closer to me.
He was in full werewolf form backing me to the wall. I flinched as he punched the wall directly beside my head. He kept punching it again and again but never directly hit me. Suddenly Liam fell limp on the ground. Another guy stood behind him glaring directly at me.
“I’d run.” He said.
The other guy grabbed Liam dragging him off. I had to find her. I jumped up quickly trying my best to walk down the steep hill but I fell and went rolling too. I hurt my ribs on the way making it hard to breath. I hit the bottom feeling pretty rough. I was a little ways away but I could see everything. Monroe had the gun pointed right between her eyes.
“you know I always thought of myself as a bit of a psychic, I had a feeling you were going to die, and well it looks like my prediction came true.” Monroe said moving her finger to the trigger.
I tried to protest but I got the wind knocked out of me on the way down.
“HEY ASSHOLE UP HERE!”
the other hunter turned to where the guy from earlier was and started shooting at him. Y/N grabbed the barrel of the gun Monroe was holding before hitting Monroe in the face with her head. Monroe fell backwards clutching her nose.
“I thought you were a psychic, bitch.” Y/N said kicking the gun away from her.
“watch out.” I croaked but it was barely audible.
the other hunter was reloading his gun about to shoot her. Y/N removed her belt which I now know was a sword all along. She clicked it in place before swinging it. I watched in horror as the man’s head was severed by her blade. The man’s body fell limp and his head right next to the body. She jumped back in awe of what she did.
“oh my gosh.” She said dropping the sword.
The other guy came over pulling her away. Monroe got up examining the body of the hunter. She soon noticed me laying in the dirt. She came over helping me up.
“this is who she really is Nolan.” Monroe said pointing at the dead hunter.
I couldn't get the image of the hunter out of my mind. I couldn’t get the image of her doing it out of my mind either. I laid awake all night thinking of it. What bothered me most is her killing him did nothing to me. I still wanted her, I still wanted to help her, protect her, love her.
I walked in to school exhausted from everything that happened yesterday. I managed to make it through my first three classes but there was no sign of Gabe anywhere. I got up when the bell rang dragging myself to the next class. Gabe suddenly appeared blocking my way. He had a cut on his face with blood still seeping out of it.
“we have a problem.” He said grabbing my arm.
He led me to the locker room showing me the cracked mirror.
“what happened?” I asked.
“Liam and Theo, they were here asking about what happened at the McCall house.” Gabe said looking at me.
I gave him a confused look.
“what do you mean what happened at the McCall house?” I asked.
Gabe looked down guilty.
“Gabe what did you do?” I asked.
“I did it for you.” He said.
“Gabe what are you talking about?” I asked again.
“I shot up the house, but I told Monroe it was you. All of them were inside except for Theo and Liam.” He said.
I immediately thought about Y/N.
"why did you do that?“ I growled.
"you should be grateful, you’d be dead if it weren’t for me.” Gabe said getting in my face.
I took a deep breath taking off. I could feel the tears cloud my vision. She didn’t escape Monroe just to get killed by Gabe. I quickly got in my car driving to Beacon Hills Memorial. I ran up to the front desk asking if there was anyone with the last name Yukimura there. The nurse said no sending me away. More tears fell down my cheeks as I got back in my car. I refused to believe she was gone. I drove to her house seconds away from a panic attack. I ran to her door throwing it open.
“Y/N?” I called up the steps.
no answer. I quickly ran up the steps in her room but she wasn’t there either. I fell to my knees letting the tears roll down my cheeks. Suddenly the door slammed making me whip around. Scott stood there with his arms crossed in front of him.
“I knew you’d end up here eventually.” Scott said looking at me.
“where is she?” I asked.
“I can show you, but I’m going to need you to do something for us.” Scott said negotiating.
If I said yes there was no going back to Monroe.
“okay.” I said without hesitation.
“follow me.” Scott said walking out her door.
I followed behind him keeping my eyes on the ground. He led me to a blue jeep signaling for me to get in. I nodded my head getting in the passenger seat. To say this was an awkward situation was an understatement.
“what do I have to do?” I asked.
“you’ll know what to do when the time is right.” Scott said glancing at me.
what the hell did that mean?
“how did you know I would show up?” I asked.
“because I’ve been in love before, and I know what it looks like. You’ve never hurt anyone Nolan because deep down you’ve always known she was different but you loved her anyways. Now you just know what makes her and the rest of us different..” Scott said not taking his eyes off the road.
I took a minute to take in what he was saying. It was true, I always knew she was a little different but that’s what made me fall in love with her in the first place.
“She killed someone and I didn’t even care.” I said glancing at Scott.
“yeah Theo told me. He also told me how she proceeded to panic and then threw up afterwards. She would never mean to hurt anyone Nolan, I know her and so do you.” He said pulling in the parking lot.
I looked up to see the sign for Beacon Hills Animal Clinic. I gave him a confused look.
“we couldn’t take her to a hospital.” He said getting out of the car.
I followed after him. He opened the door before stepping to the side. She was laying on metal table, Liam was there holding her hand. His head snapped up as soon as I entered the room.
“what’s he doing here?” Liam growled.
“easy Liam, he’s here because he cares.” Scott said standing in front of me.
“whatever. I keep taking her pain but it isn’t doing anything.” Liam said.
Scott walked over leaning over her. She wasn’t moving.
“Is she dead?” I choked out.
I could feel a single tear run down my cheek.
“no but she’s going to be if we can’t get her to heal.” Liam said looking to Scott.
I walked closer to her. She had three bullet holes in her chest. I felt angry. I wanted to make Gabe pay for this.
“how do we get her to heal?” I asked looking at both boys.
“I don’t know, she needs to command the fox inside of her to heal itself but she can’t exactly do that right now.” Scott said.
“taking away her pain isn’t working either.” Liam said grabbing her hand again.
“can I try something?” I asked looking at Scott and then Liam.
Scott nodded his head moving out of the way. I walked to the side of her looking down at her perfect facial features. I took a deep breath before pressing my lips to hers. I kissed her with everything I had in me. I didn’t know if it would actually work but I needed to try.
“look.” Liam said.
I pulled away looking down at her. The three holes in her chest were healed over, like they were never there. She gasped shooting up off the table.
I like cliffhangers so you can have one more. Beaten coming soon xoxoxo
