Marilyn Monroe announced as new face of Max Factor

Marilyn Monroe passed away more than half a century ago, but the blonde bombshell is still being recognised for her iconic beauty.

Cosmetics giant Max Factor have just announced Marilyn as their 'Global Glamour Ambassador'.

Their choice is down to the fact that Mr Max Factor transformed Norma Jeane into Marilyn Monroe at his Hollywood make-up studio.


Mr Max Factor was partly responsible for tranforming Norma Jeane into Marilyn Monroe

"Through expert diagnosis and make-up artisty, Norma Jeane's facial features were pulled out and dramatised through make-up," said Pat McGrath, Max Factor Global Creative Design Director.

"Her skin was creamy and flawless, the shape of her eyes was elongated through clever use of eyeliner and her lips were accentuated with a sultry red shade, becoming the key focal point of the entire look."


Alongside their new announcement, Max Factor have launched a #GlamJan campaign, which calls women to upload a selfie using the hashtag while wearing their most glamorous make-up and revealing how it makes them feel.
