He created the first flexible theatrical greasepaint in 1914 and become an authority on cosmetics. In 1926, he created the first theatrical water proof makeup. The pan-cake makeup was developed in 1938. His son, Max Factor Jr. developed a smear proof lipstick called Tru-Colors which has 6 variety of red. Max Factor launched the first clear mascara in 1988.
