Take a hint from Marilyn Monroe when it comes to lipstick

These days, it seems like more women are looking back in time to find makeup that truly pops and gives them a unique appearance. The 1950s come to mind when most people think of Hollywood glam, and for good reason. This is a time when women like Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor reigned supreme, and their makeup styles are still trendy today.

Specifically, fire engine red lips are back at the top of every woman’s list, according to InStyle magazine. Why? Because it’s sexy and easy to do with the right long-lasting, bold lipstick. Just because you aren’t a movie star doesn’t mean that you can’t rock this look. It’s also being seen more often in the office – thank “Mad Men” for that!

To pull off red lipstick like a pro, it’s important to be confident. Don’t be shy about smiling and showing off your pout when you’re wearing this color. Real Simple magazine also recommends picking a soft, sheer shade for the daylight hours to avoid creating an in-your-face appearance. Reserve opaque hues for your nightlife when you really want to stand out!

Sharon Stone steps out of her comfort zone with bold makeup

There’s nothing quite like the look of a bright, fresh face, which is what Sharon Stone is known for in Hollywood. However, she took her appearance to a new level on April 5 at a gala to raise money for AIDS, according to The Huffington Post. Stone, who is typically seen wearing neutral makeup that highlights her natural beauty, decided to go bold.

On her face, Stone decided to wear dark purple eyeshadow and apply black eyeliner around her peepers. A deep magenta lipstick was on her pout, which made her smile seem more radiant when she posed for photographers. Not everyone loved her makeup choices, but Stone proved that you can still break all of the rules and look fabulous in the process.

If you’re interested in going bold with a vivid shade on your lips, there are a few ways you can pull it off without looking clownish. As a rule of thumb, Glamour magazine recommends toning down the makeup you wear on other parts of your face. It’s also a good idea to take your time while shopping for a bold lipstick – don’t make any purchases until you’re sure that the shade complements your skin tone!

Tips for wearing bold makeup

Tips for wearing bold makeup As is often the case in the sunny summertime months, bright colors are popping up everywhere – especially on celebrities’ faces. But before you give these bold shades a go, heed a bit of expert advice when selecting products.

Shiny, fruit-stained pouts are huge right now, currently being rocked by such stars as Selena Gomez and Kate Walsh. But before you lacquer your lips, InStyle recommends selecting a hue one shade lighter than your original pick, as your lips’ natural pigment can amp up the tone a few degrees.

To keep your smile from looking too formal, the magazine suggests using a richly pigmented, water-resistant gloss, like Too Faced Glamour Gloss, instead of a stick.

If you’d like a sultry stare instead, opt for a swoosh of colorful eye makeup. Amanda Crew, who plays Zac Efron’s love interest in Charlie St. Cloud, dazzled at the film’s premiere with dark blue-lined eyes, and her makeup artist revealed how to create a look that will last.

“Layering a powdered shadow on top of a creamy pencil gives an added boost of color intensity. Plus, it helps the makeup stay put for hours,” makeup artist Rachel Goodwin told the news source. To try this technique, thickly line eyes with Sothys Waterproof Soft Eye Pencil then top with the brand’s Two Way Eye Shadow.ADNFCR-3538-ID-19908369-ADNFCR
