From makeup artist to cosmetics mogul
Bobbi’s message remains the same today as it was when she launched in 1991: "The secret to
beauty is simple—be who you are.”

With the launch of Bobbi Brown Essentials in 1991, Bobbi Brown changed the face of cosmetics with 10 lipstick shades, created to fill a void in the market of simple, flattering and wearable makeup. Bobbi’s philosophy was simple: "Women want to look and feel like themselves, only prettier and more confident." Her unique approach was a gift for women who wanted a more natural look, and in 1995 the company was acquired by The Estée Lauder Companies. In addition to being a founder, Bobbi is a makeup artist, beauty and lifestyle editor, and New York Times best-selling author, creative consultant at Lord and Taylor and their justBOBBI shop, and founder of Beauty Evolution .
