GETTING TO KNOW DEAN FACTOR!!!

GETTING TO KNOW DEAN FACTOR!!!


Dean Factor. What can one say? The pedigree is pure fabulous. Yup, he’s the spawn of a legend. The Grandson of Mr. Max Factor himself. Can you imagine being Max Factor’s grandson? There are tributes to him all over town. There is a MUSEUM to his greatness.

If I were a Factor I’d be drinking Tequila Sunrises at Sunrise. Not in this family gene-pool. They are a hardworking bunch. SMASHBOX COSMETICS grew from Dean and Davis Factor. They knew their niche and modernized it.

Meg had the opportunity to find out what makes Dean tick. Is he a trust fund no good or a trust fund so good!! Smashbox is amazing. Here’s what Dean-O has to say!

My name and hometown:

DEAN FACTOR – LOS ANGELES, CA

My start in life was to do this…
but the path I took towards cosmetics was driven by this…

DAVIS AND I STARTED SMASHBOX STUDIOS OVER 15 YEARS AGO. THE STUDIO BUSINESS INSPIRED US TO CREATE A LINE OF COSMETICS THAT WOULD WORK ON THE PHOTO SHOOTS. OUR GREAT GRAND FATHER WAS MAX FACTOR AND WE KNEW A BIT ABOUT THE INDUSTRY – WE SAW THIS AS A UNTAPPED NICHE.

I want all women to know this about themselves…

CONFIDENCE IS THE BEST BEAUTY TOOL.

My goal is to bring each user of my products this…

MAKEUP THAT IS HEALTHY FOR YOUR SKIN AND VERY WEARABLE.

I believe in all of my products but if I could urge each women to try
this one (pick your favorite) I would…

PHOTO FINISH FOUNDATION PRIMER WITH DERMAXYL AND SPF 15. THIS PROCUCT ACTUALLY IMPROVES YOUR SKIN, FILLS IN FINE LINES, AND PROTECTS FROM THE SUN.

Style influences vary, I would say my style is most like this…

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA STYLE BUT INSPIRED BY THE TRENDS THAT ARE SEEN IN THE STUDIOS.

I started my line because I couldn’t find this…
but I deliver it with each product…

PRODUCT THAT COULD BE USED ON PHOTO SHOOTS AND IN EVERYDAY LIFE.

When I see a women make this mistake I cringe…

WEARING TOO MUCH LIP LINER.

My products care about the way you look like no one else’s because of
this…

THEY ARE HEALTHY FOR YOUR SKIN AND ANIMAL FRIENDLY.

Lastly, if I were at a bar I’d order this…

VODKA TONIC

True or False, I’m going to tell you when there’s spinach between your
teeth…

TRUE
