Marilyn Monroe returns to Max Factor


Max Factor has announced one of the most famous women in the world as it’s new Global Glamour Ambassador – the late Marilyn Monroe.  In the late 1940’s a brunette Norma Jeane Baker entered Max Factor Juniors ‘Blonde Room’ and emerged with platinum blonde hair, a beauty look fit for Marilyn Monroe.

“Marilyn made the sultry red lip, creamy skin and dramatically lined eyes the most famous beauty look of the 1940’s and it’s a look that continues to dominate the beauty and fashion industry” said Max Factor Global Creative Design Director Pat McGrath.  “It is the ultimate look that defines glamour – nothing else compares.  Ruby Tuesday, inspired by one of Marylin’s favourite Max Factor lipsticks, is still my go-to red for an instant shot of glamour, and continues to be one of the most popular shades for both make-up artists and real women.  It’s the ultimate glamorous red.”

Marilyn Monroe famously said, “I used to think as I looked out on the Hollywood night, ‘There must be thousands of girls sitting alone like me dreaming of being a movie star.  But I’m not going to worry about them.  I’m dreaming the hardest.”  With a little help from Max Factor, who gave her the ultimate glamourous transformation from Norma Jeane to the stunning Marilyn Monroe, nothing could hold her back from fulfilling her dreams.
