Did you know??- Make-up !!

Make-up has become part and parcel of  our life. It not only helps to beautify our natural self but also gives boost to our confidence.

So from where did this 'Make-up' word originated from? All thanks to chemist and cosmetician extraordinaire Max Factor the founder of Max Factor and Company. He started as a wig maker but with his knowledge of chemistry he replaced the earlier greasepaint used by actors with a cream-based greasepaint which didn't crack and continued to invent different products.He is know as the Father of Modern Make-up.

He was the first person to use 'Make- up' as a noun form and popularized it. He is not only the founder of our modern day make-up but also the genius behind naming it make-up.
