Goodbye Norma Jeane by Chuchy5 Goodbye Norma Jeane by Chuchy5
Goodbye Norma Jeane (Request 5)

I know it's been a while, but I had a big bruise in my jaw and I couldn't do my lip desings. Today I'm feeling better and I want to do my 5th request. And today is the Marilyn Monroe 50th Anniversary I thought that it was a good date for this request.

I used red lipstick and black eyeliner. I did a previous stencil with a little piece of plastic with the Marilyn's face. And I desaturated the left part of the photo in photoshop and added my signature.

Hope you like it as always :heart:

This is a very impressive and lovely Norma Jeane/Marilyn Monroe tribute and I am 100 percent positive that any Marilyn Monroe fan would be satisfied with the lip makeup. Nice job with drawing Miss Monroe's face on your bottom lip with a stencil and it doesn't look very messy. Plus, I could recognize the famous Hollywood idol right away without looking at the title. I really liked that you desaturated the left side of your face for the picture. It almost seems like the left is the past and the right is the present here. Although, I feel like you should have added Marilyn's trademark beauty mark onto the look just to make it feel more Marilyn Monroe. Like I said earlier, impressive lips tribute for the Marilyn Monroe 50th Anniversary Memorial.
I hope that you have a nice day and hopefully, I didn't make the critique sound confusing or rate this too high or low.

Hi ^^
I'm french and I speaker English very very Bad. So, I Will ''critique'' (I don't Know .. That's a word ?) in french, sorry x)

Je trouve ça très beau. Je n'ose même pas imaginer comment je pourrais faire ça avec mes lèvres. C'est juste magnifique, très délicat, adorable. C'est original, intéressant, j'espère en voir d'autre, pour l'instant je n'ai pas le temps pour ça. Mais en tout cas, j'adore, c'est pourquoi j'ai mis ton œuvre en favori. Voilà !

I Hope you Can understand with Google translate xD

I am a huge admirer of Marilyn Monroe, and this is absolutely stunning. I had to do a project on her, and I learned a lot about her personality, early life, etc. I know this is random, but I'm sure if Marilyn Monroe could somehow see this she'd be proud of this art work and DEFINITELY flattered.
