It's almost Halloween, which means it's time to knock the cobwebs off your imagination and have some serious fun playing dress-up! And year-after-year, while witches and warlocks fill the streets, there's another equally popular costume that's anything but spooky - Hollywood siren, Marilyn Monroe. Here are the beauty must-haves you'll need to pull off her iconic look ...
From the hit TV Show Smash to Michelle Williams unforgettable performance in My Week with Marilyn, Norma Jeane was everywhere this year. Even Paris Hilton channeled her beauty in this image from the launch of her fragrance Tease. While bleach-blonde locks are a given, no matter who wears the look, there are two key items that will polish-off any Marilyn-inspired costume perfectly.
Crimson Lips - If Marilyn had a signature accessory other than sex appeal, it was her stunning red pout. And thanks to Dior, finding the ideal shade of crimson is kind of a no-brainer. Simply snag the new Marilyn Diorific Lipstick and you're ready to go! Need help with the perfect application? Check out the behind-the-scenes video from our Retro Glam fall photo shoot.
A-list arches - While not as recognizable as her red lips, there's not a Marilyn photo I've seen where her brows weren't groomed to perfection and defined with brow pencil or powder in a deeper shade than her bombshell blonde locks. To get this same effect, choose a brow definer that's the same tone as your hair color but one to two shades darker. I like LAMIK's Celebrity Brow Kit or Benefit Brow Zings With two shades in both of these kits, it's easy to achieve a set of A-list arches all your own.
