Two Iconic Looks: Priscilla Presley and Marilyn Monroe

When it comes to timeless beauty and iconic style, few names resonate as strongly as Priscilla Presley and Marilyn Monroe. These two legendary women not only left an indelible mark on the entertainment industry but also became style icons whose makeup looks, especially their captivating eye makeup, are celebrated to this day. 

Effortlessly elegant Priscilla Presley, best known as the wife of the King of Rock 'n' Roll, Elvis Presley exuded timeless elegance. Her eye makeup, in particular, was the key element of her signature look. Priscilla often embraced a subtle yet captivating approach to eye makeup. Her eyes were framed by thick, winged eyeliner that accentuated their almond shape. The elongated wings added a touch of drama, making her gaze both mysterious and alluring.

To achieve Priscilla's iconic eye makeup look, start with a neutral eyeshadow base to create a clean canvas. Then, carefully apply a well-defined winged eyeliner using a liquid or gel formula, like our Hyper Performance Gel Liner. Finish with a few coats of volumizing mascara (Full Control Lash Sculpting Mascara) to achieve that wide-eyed, glamorous look. She also loved to add false lashes like our Visionary Lash 008for that bold look. Priscilla's eye makeup remains a timeless inspiration for those seeking classic Hollywood beauty.

The glamorous bombshell Marilyn Monroe, the ultimate blonde bombshell of the silver screen, is synonymous with glamour and sensuality. Her makeup, especially her sultry eye makeup, played a crucial role in defining her iconic image. Marilyn's eyes were the focal point of her face, often adorned with a seductive combination of dark eyeliner, voluminous lashes, and a hint of shimmering eyeshadow.

To channel Marilyn's captivating eye makeup, opt for a neutral eyeshadow palette with shades like champagne and taupe. Use a black eyeliner, like our Pure Pigment Kohl Liner to create a bold, defined line along the upper lash line, extending it slightly for that classic winged effect. Finish the look with volumizing mascara (Full Control Lash Sculpting Mascara) and, if you desire, false lashes like our Visionary Lash 001, for that extra touch of Hollywood glamour.

Both Priscilla Presley and Marilyn Monroe's iconic eye makeup looks have stood the test of time, continuing to inspire beauty enthusiasts and makeup artists alike. Their styles, while distinct, share a common thread of sophistication and allure. These timeless looks serve as a reminder that classic beauty transcends eras and trends.
