Marilyn Monroe Named Max Factor Ambassador

She's been dead for more than 50 years...but she's still got it.

Meet the new face of Max Factor - Marilyn Monroe. The makeup brand announced the iconic blonde bombshell, who died at the age of 36 in 1962, will be the 'global glamour ambassador.'

She'll star in advertisements that emphasize the role make up played in her transformation from Norma Jean to the most well-known sex symbol.

The late starlet was a Max Factor client in the 40s and a spokesman for the company told The Daily Telegraph she's responsible for one of the most popular looks of today.

"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. It is the ultimate look that defines glamour - nothing else compares."

Monroe was also brought back to life in a 2011 fragrance commercial for Dior. In fact, the classic beauty is still making money from the grave- pulling in more than $16 million a year.

...Which she'd be thrilled about given that her salary for her final unfinished film was only $100,000.
