Seeing Red

Red lipstick will never grow old for me. It’s a powerful beauty staple able to flawlessly transform any outfit from a day at the office to a night on the town. Immortalized thanks to the old Hollywood glamour of Marilyn Monroe, Lucille Ball and Elizabeth Taylor, red lipstick is a necessary tool to keep in your makeup arsenal. Finding the right shade can prove tricky, but fortunately this Fall MAC Cosmetics is coming to the rescue with their Marilyn Monroe limited-edition collection. Inspired by the blonde bombshell, MAC’s 30-piece line will include eyeshadows, eyeliner, nail polishes and retro lipsticks. “Her look not only defined a generation but also is relevant today,” MAC Senior VP James Gager said to the Hollywood Reporter. I agree, especially after seeing Angelina Jolie, Rooney Mara and Milla Jovovich sporting the crimson color at this year’s Oscars. Well done, red. Well done.
