Meet the New Face of Max Factor: Marilyn Monroe
The blonde bombshell is the makeup giant’s new ambassador.
(SPOT.ph) Yup, you read that right. Although it’s been over 50 years since her death, beauty brand Max Factor has named Marilyn Monroe as their new "Global Glamour Ambassador" to celebrate the label’s 80th anniversary.
It may seem a little strange for a brand to choose an icon who is no longer alive, but Max Factor takes pride in the way they were able to transform a simple Norma Jeane Mortenson (her real name) into a Marilyn Monroe-the stunning sex symbol that the actress still is today.
Monroe was a longtime client of founder Max Factor’s son Max Factor Jr. in the 1940s, before she was known for her signature look: the "red lip, creamy skin, and dramatically lined eyes."
