HISTORY OF MAKEUP Bobbi Brown Cosmetics
"In the 1980s, when look-at-me colors, stark contours, and shiny red lips were in fashion, Bobbi Brown designed cosmetics to highlight a woman's natural look....."
Bobbi Brown moved to New York after graduating from her college in Boston with a degree in theatrical makeup and a beginner's portfolio. She had built her way up from freelance makeup artist!
In 1991, she and a chemist released a line of new lipsticks under the brand Bobbi Brown Essentials, which debuted at Berdorf Goodman in New York City. Today, the line is available at few fine retailers such as Lord & Taylor The success of that makeup line led Estee Lauder to buy the company in 1995.
