2. Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn Monroe was incredibly envied for her lovely flirtatious on-screen presence and her radiantly glowing skin. Her deep red lips were also a part of her trademark style.
To get this look, you can blend a pearlescent primer with some cream foundation. This will help you to get radiantly glowing skin like Marilyn's. For the red lips, you can try some matte lipstick and use a lip liner trick to make your lips appear fuller.

3. Bettie Page
Bettie Page was naturally blessed with beautiful skin and a well-toned body. However what really added to her pristine and timeless beauty was her smiling face and lit-up eyes. She would try her best to be stress-free. For this she would work out on time, eat well (without starving herself), go out for walks and slept well. She avoided alcohol and cigarettes which helped her to keep her skin young and glowing.
To imitate Bettie Page's look, you can style your hair like hers with the adorable fringe. It was this trademark hairstyle of hers that made her stand out from other pin girls of her time.

4. Jane Russell
Jane Russell is considered to be one of the greatest actresses of her time. But if there is something else that she is also well-known for, then it is her simple and unforgettable beauty. Her idea of style was very simple. She always matched the color of her nail paint to the lipstick she wore.
Learning Jane Russell's style is very easy, but putting the same level of charm in your look is the hard part. She believed in maintaining her cool at all times. Her pleasant look and welcoming smile was a trademark to her beauty.

5. Joan Crawford
What you cannot learn from Joan Crawford, is the better question to ask! This beautiful American actress did not use expensive products to maintain the smoothness and taut of her face. Apparently she would chew on gum as she believed that it would help to firm up her jaw line. She also believed that it would burn the toxins from under her chin. She would religiously wash her face 25 times a day with ice cold water to cleanse her skin.
Things to learn from her is splashing your hair and body with cold water after a warm shower so that it closes your open pores and makes your hair shiny. Also a massage with upward strokes on your face and neck is a highly Joan Crawford's recommended practice.

This German beauty's signature style was her perfectly sculptured look. Marlene Dietrich highly believed in accentuating the lines on her face by contouring them heavily. She also never applied mascara on her lower eyelashes, as she felt that they cast a shadow on your face. Her best feature was her perfectly shaped eye-brows. Apparently, she used to shave off her eyebrows completely and would draw them using a kohl.
Now, shaving off your eyebrows is an extreme measure and we do not recommend that. But, you can surely see to that your eyebrows are shaped beautifully. Marlene is the evidence of the fact that a woman's eyebrows add glamour and definition to her whole face.
