This season, it’s all about the old Hollywood glamour, and M.A.C Cosmetics launches its Marilyn Monroe collection just at the right time. A tribute to the beauty icon of the 50s, the collection consists of luscious red lipsticks, eyeshadows in shimmering metallic and diamond tones, dazzling nail lacquers, dramatic lashes, and more.
‘When you look at images of Marilyn, you immediately notice her perfectly arched brows, defined lash line, and lips. She had a very heavy eyelid that she accentuated with lighter colours, which was contrasted by her signature cat eyeliner that started in the middle of her lips and winged out, making her eyes look sleepy and sexy. Her other signature, red lips, were shaped in a voluptuous bow. And let’s not forget her beauty mark and platinum hair! She is iconic because her look epitomizes femininity.’ -Gregory Arit, Director of Makeup Artistry, M.A.C Cosmetics.
Our favourite item from this limited edition collection? The red lipstick and matching red lip liner for sexy lips! Haritha Shan, M.A.C Malaysia’s Senior Artist, also gave two tips when we mentioned our love for the ‘Charmed I’m Sure’ lipstick and ‘Redd’ lip pencil: firstly, always use a lip liner before applying lipstick to shape your lips, and secondly, use a brush to apply lipstick to your lips – this will give them a more even and flawless look.
Wanna know more about this collection and how you can use it for both daytime and nighttime looks? Check out our video with Haritha!
