    Nice women never wore makeup. Even the word was taboo in polite society—until Max Factor entered the scene. Born in Poland in 1877, Factor worked as a beautician for the Russian royal family, the Romanovs. In 1904, he fled to America, where he opened a cosmetics store in Los Angeles. Creating makeup originally for silent films, then the talkies, and, ultimately, color motion pictures, Factor designed looks for Katharine Hepburn, Rita Hayworth, Bette Davis, and countless other beauties of the day. Soon women everywhere wanted to look like their favorite glamorous stars, and Factor was there to help, bringing his innovative cosmetics to the general public.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Very interesting story about a very interesting man.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Samantha Worthen?

    I would cast almost any human over Samantha Worthen, who sounds like a robot that doesn't understand how a sentence is supposed to be read for it to flow. Strange and unnecessary pauses, almost as if words were recorded independently of each other then strung together to make this recording. While this does improve over each individual chapter, the beginning of the next chapter is just as bad as the last
