Marilyn Monroe dress up

I'm looking for some help. I'm going to a Hollywood legends fancy dress party. I'm reusing wedding dress (antique gold lace over silk), I've borrowed a stole, bought gloves and wig.

Now I need to get some make - up. I'm fair & red haired so need a good instant wash off tan.
Id like some nice red lipstick, kkpink blusher, and false eyelashes. I don't want to spend a huge amount.

Any other tips to discovering my inner marilyn ???

Wow! The easiest thing would be to copy a photo of her makeup. Heavily black lined eyes and don't forget the beauty spot!!!

I don't think you need a tan, she was usually pale, red lips and a black line over the top eyelid, close to your eyelashes with very pale pearly almost white eyeshadow is the way I think of her. Laluna is right, don't forget the beauty spot.
