Bobbi Brown – Bobbi Brown Cosmetics
The story: Bobbi Brown may now be a household name in cosmetics, but her career dates back to 1980 when she first moved to New York City to become a professional make-up artist. She quickly became known in the industry for her use of neutral, moderate tones, which offered a stark contrast to the bright hues used by other artists in the Eighties. Bobbi Brown Cosmetics was born in 1991, when she worked with a chemist to create 10 natural-hued lipsticks. The line quickly grew – and its success over the coming years led Estée Lauder to buy the company in 1995. The make-up artist stayed firmly at the helm for over 20 years, before the announcement of her departure last year. Where to buy: There are a whopping nine Bobbi Brown stores across the UAE.
