The world’s most famous woman, glamorous Marylin Monroe, is the new global ambassador of the American cosmetics brand, Max Factor. The main reason for the company’s choice, 53 years after the death of the beautiful actress, is believed to be the contribution of Max Factor’s son, Max Factor Junior, to the transformation of the ordinary brunette American girl, Norma Jeane, into the platinum-blonde Hollywood queen, known worldwide under the name of Marilyn Monroe.
“Marilyn made the sultry red lip, creamy skin and dramatically lined eyes the most famous beauty look of the Forties 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 Marilyn’s favourite Max Factor lipsticks, is still my go-to red today for an instant shot of glamour, and continues to be one of the most popular shades for both make-up artists and real women.”
This is not the first time her unmistakable style inspired famous brands worldwide – Marilyn was unveiled as the face of Chanel No.5 in 2013 after she declared that she wore nothing in bed but a few drops of the famous fragrance.
