Yes, you read that correctly: A celebrity who died in 1962 is the new face of a cosmetics campaign in 2015. Because why should we let a trifling thing like death get in the way of finding
the perfect bombshell red lippie?
Max Factor has just announced that Marilyn Monroe (and her pre-fame incarnation as Norma Jean) has been tapped as the face fit to celebrate their 80th anniversary. The blonde bombshell was reportedly a huge fan of the brand back in the 40’s, and if anyone is a makeup icon, it’s
the platinum blonde who made red lips and winged liner a thing (that’s still a thing decades later).
