'You are not born glamorous. Glamour is created.'.
The brainchild of Russian emigrant to the US, Mr. Max Factor spent a lifetime working his magic on Hollywood’s leading ladies, even earning an Oscar for his efforts. Today his lovingly crafted makeup from mascara and foundation to eye shadow and lip gloss are sold worldwide, allowing women everywhere to create their own personal glamour statement. After all, as Mr. Factor believed, any woman can be glamorous given the right tools and make-up artistry skills. This iconic brand is credited with ‘Ten Firsts’ including Flexible Greasepaint, the first ever makeup seen on screen, Pan-Cake, the first ever foundation, Crème Puff, the powder for a touchup-in-a-flash, Erace, a concealer in a stick and Lipfinity, a long wear lipstick. Mr. Factor also created the Wand Mascara, Calorie Mascara (now rechristened the 2000 Calorie Mascara) and False Lash Effect Mascara that continues to go by the same name. 
Continuing its legacy as the makeup brand of the stars, just a fortnight ago, Max Factor announced Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow as the new face of Max Factor's Modern Icon campaign. The star will model some of the most influential and iconic beauty looks of the past few decades, transforming into modern interpretations of yesteryear idols, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot, Farrah Fawcett and Madonna. Her first appearance oozed glamor; a very low-cut gold sequined  number, loose blonde curls, flawless foundation,  ridiculously long eyelashes and bronzed cheekbones. Sensational! Just like Max Factor.
