Joelle Talks Max Factor and its Muse, Marilyn Monroe

Entrepreneur and all around beauty powerhouse, Joelle Mardinian took to the red carpet for Max Factor’s glamorous event held at Sass Café in Dubai. Beauty addicts gathered together to watch Max Factor makeup artists transform a Norma Jean lookalike into a full on Marilyn Monroe. Why Marilyn? Well, this year marks 80 years since Mr. Max Factor himself transformed a young Norma Jean into an iconic beauty—complete with red glossy lips, feline eyeliner, and beauty spot that we all admire.

As both Max Factor’s regional creative director and a Pantene ambassador, Joelle has built a beauty portfolio that includes her own self titled makeover TV show, Joelle for MBC 1 and presides over no less than 7 Joelle Beauty Clinics (Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Qatar.) Her avid fans will soon be tuning into Fashion Time on Rotana Khalijia for her segment on makeup tips for Arabic skin tones, so stay tuned.
