The "kissing machine": measuring lipstick's staying power.

for salon, and both George
Burns and John Wayne
came regularly for toupe fit-
tings.
Mr. Factor spared the
thespians frequent trips to
his salon by creating wooden
heads, which measured each
actor's hairline from ear to
ear and from forehead to
neck, and could be used
again and again.
Also on display at the mu-
seum are some of Factor's
cosmetic firsts, like the
makeup base he created es-
pecially for film.

Directors had been quick
to discover that skin tone, no
matter how beautiful in real
life, did not necessarily
translate to the silver
screen. So they turned to
Max Factor, whose first con-
coction was a greasepaint
used in a 1914 movie. His
panchromatic base, de-
veloped specifically for films,
came next; 600 gallons of it
were used to cover
charioteers in the original
Ben Hur. By 1938, Factor
had developed an even finer
product, pancake makeup,
used in the first Technicolor
film, Vogues of '38. One
critic raved: "Never have
actors looked so natural."

Factor, who coined the
term "makeup," also created
the first lip brush and lip
gloss, the first human hair
wig and the first false
eyelashes. He made the first
eyebrow pencils, among
whose greatest fans was
Marlene Dietrich, who shav-
ed off her own eyebrows and
regularly penciled them in.

Beauty apparently was not
in the eye of the beholder but
in the "beauty calibrator" as
far as Max Factor was con-
cerned. The metal device,
which resembles a sort of
science fiction helmet with

vertical metal slips and
thick pins, fit over the head
of a woman. The pins would
then measure the lengths
and distances needed to ob-
tain perfect makeup.

For example, a woman
might find her eyes were not
nearly as far apart as the
calibrator deemed
necessary. Factor would
then know the exact makeup
needed to make the client a
perfect beauty.

The "kissing
machine" had two
pairs of rubberized
lips which were
pressed together
under 10-pound
tension (which
Factor believed to
be the perfect kiss)
to measure
lipstick's staying
power.

Another Factor concoction
on display is the "kissing
machine." The device had
two pairs of rubberized lips
which were pressed together
under 10-pound tension
(which Factor believed to be
the perfect kiss) to measure
lipstick's staying power.

Factor's original plan had
been to use two attractive
employees to test the
lipstick. But he found they
had little energy to perform
the kiss, which required 40
minutes to completely test
the product.
Located at 1666 N.
Highland Ave. in
Hollywood, the museum is
open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mon-
day through Saturday.
There is no charge. ❑
