How to Create Your Own Week with Marilyn

Marilyn Monroe was known for her sexy rouge pout, so in honor of “My Week with Marilyn,” staring Michelle Williams, we are bringing you a nod to retro glamor.  Channel your inner Hollywood siren to expose confidence, class and ultra-femininity.

Our fave lip picks to recreate this glam effect is the Madame Rouge collection – a luxurious lip duo that creates beautiful long-lasting color.  

Two ways to achieve this look:

1.  Velvety Matte Finish: The Lip Pencils in Red Velvet and Crushed Velvet ($20 each) are formulated with conditioners so the soft, moisturizing texture glides on for a flawless satin finish. 

To Apply: Begin by outlining the lips, then lighten up your touch and fade to a lighter hue towards the inside - this will create a plumping effect.

2.  High-Shine Sparkle: For shiny, dimensional sparkling color, lacquer lips with Lady Ultra Shine Gloss ($26), to deliver a deep, berry shimmer.

To Apply: Outline the outer edges of the lips with the tip of the applicator, then fill in uniformly and let the shimmer work its magic.

Of course, we have to add our two cents and remind you this is a evening look – don’t show up to the office or an early meeting decked out like a vampy vixen.
