Bobbi Brown is the founder and chief creative officer of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics. Bobbi first arrived on the beauty scene in 1991 with the launch of Bobbi Brown Essentials, and changed the face of makeup with 10 brown­-based lipstick shades created to fill a void in the market of simple and flattering makeup. Bobbi’s philosophy was simple: “Women want to look and feel like themselves, only prettier and more confident.” Today, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics is a global color cosmetics, fragrance and skincare brand with a presence in more than 65 countries and 50 free-standing stores. She is also editor­-in-­chief of Yahoo Beauty and beauty & lifestyle editor of Elvis Duran and The Morning Show, a nationally syndicated radio show. A New York Times best-selling author, Bobbi has written eight beauty and lifestyle books. Her impact extends well beyond the beauty and fashion industries. In 2008, she received an honorary doctorate from Montclair State University. In 2010, Bobbi was appointed by President Obama to the Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiation. As the brand continues to grow globally, Bobbi’s message remains the same today as when she launched in 1991: “The secret to beauty is simple—be who you are.” Bobbi is also a serious foodie interested in the link between wellness and diet. She truly believes that beauty starts from within.
