It may have been custom made, and was used in a photo-shoot by Richard Avedon for Life Magazine. Marilyn Monroe was an invention of hers. A genius invention that she created, like an author creates a character… She understood photography, and she also understood what makes a great photograph.
She related to it as if she were giving a performance. Trevor will certainly not be bidding at the forthcoming auction, though he retains a keen interest in unfolding events.
He is dismayed by the crass commercialism surrounding Monroe of recent times, and the undignified parade of her personal items through various auction rooms. Capote was also a friend of the English stage and film actress Constance Collier , who later became a widely respected acting and voice coach. What she has — this presence, this luminosity, this flickering intelligence — could never surface on the stage.
There is also an unmistakable touch of the heroic about her, given where she came from and where she went. Her unique and intoxicating combination of beauty, talent, sensuality, impulsiveness, and emotional turmoil continues to beguile and haunt. She suffered from the thwarted ambition and unfulfilled promise that afflicts so many of us- and yet she demonstrated great resilience. Sometimes it seems as though the desperate pathos of her tragic demise might threaten to overwhelm the pleasure her work continues to bring.
It is as though Monroe anticipated this paradox when she mused,.

A pretty light pink nude without any shimmer that gives a lifelike warmth and glow to my cheeks. And of course, I love carrying this blush with me, just to show off the pretty packaging — and the fact that I was able to score one of these coveted pieces of makeup. How fab would an Audrey Hepburn line be? Or one for Elizabeth Taylor?
Sorry for the late chime in.. The man has passion behind his creation, let me tell you. What I really liked seeing was the never before seen photos of Marilyn and they were something.. So much so, that I made sure to get pictures of the photographs.. Regarding the packaging, I love it! So unique with her face on them. Overall the colors were pretty but like Stef mentions.. But I did love the red lips they put on me in Deeply Adored — Deep scarlet :. And I have to avoid direct sunlight and holy water. I use this as a whole-face powder and the hint of pink warms and brightens my complexion, while still letting me maintain my pale.
Pingback: The Lipstick League — Week of There are so many of these that I love. I adore this whole collection! It was a sad, sad day indeed when I had to decline attending this particular launch. Truly, I cannot think of a makeup event of any kind more up my alley. First up, that lipstick! Phenomenal smooth matte feel, extraordinarily long lasting and, of course, great looking! This is a true fifties-era red a la Lucy, a la Marilyn, a la a lot of movie matrons, madams and sex kittens.
No doubt MAC did some formula perfecting with the super-sexy orange-red and came up with a hands-down classic.
Unlike Stef, I was thrilled with the eyeshadow as well. I remember that famous close-up photo of her wearing a sweater, tousled hair and eyes seemingly caked in white pearl with super thick black liner on her half-closed eyes. She looked lipstickless perhaps what inspired that nudish lipstick and unadorned and simple as only Marilyn could while wearing so much eye makeup. I never thought it was the most flattering makeup face, but for me it was her most memorable and iconic. How To Marry on the lid and browbone with a swipe of a soft light brown in the crease along with a thickly lined top lash and tons of mascara make an eye that is all Marilyn.
After all, who wants their eyes totally whited out? Nice retro shimmer with a new world, finely milled soft and silky application. Phyrra Beauty for the Bold. Keep up the great work! It adds a lovely sparkle to my eyes. I must get a back up Nothing else appealed to me from this collection. Okay so I went to the pre-launch and got Phiff!
