In the 1930s “Golden Era of Hollywood,” Max Factor was the makeup supplier to the stars. Jean Harlow, Claudette Colbert, and Bette Davis were regular visitors to his salon, just off Hollywood Boulevard. Decades after its heyday, the building was restored to its original condition, and became the Max Factor Museum, dedicated to the history and glamour of makeup. It underwent another renovation and re-opened as the Hollywood History Museum. Featuring four floors of memorabilia and over 5,000 displays of rare movie props and costumes, the museum still has some of the original Max Factor collection, such as original black-and-white photos of early 20th-century starlets, as well as original furniture, mirrors, and makeup tools.
