    Bobbi Brown

    Founder & CEO, Beauty Evolution; Founder, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics

    Bobbi Brown is an entrepreneur, author and makeup artist. She recently left her eponymous beauty company Bobbi Brown Cosmetics to launch Beauty Evolution, a new lifestyle platform that celebrates confidence, wellness and beauty through empowerment. 

    Brown first arrived on the beauty scene in 1991 with the launch of Bobbi Brown Essentials, which changed the face of cosmetics with its ten brown-based lipstick shades created to fill a void in the market for women who wanted a more natural look. Brown's unique approach to beauty and her ability to translate the latest trends into wearable, real-life looks has made her a sought-after expert, including backstage at New York Fashion Week. She has appeared on Good Morning America, The Oprah Winfrey Show and The View, along with many other outlets. She is the Beauty & Lifestyle Editor of “Elvis Duran and The Morning Show,” a nationally syndicated morning radio show, and served as editor-in-chief of Yahoo! Beauty, beauty editor of The Today Show, and a contributing beauty & lifestyle editor at Health magazine. In 2013, she launched an eyewear collection with Safilo, and recently, was named creative consultant at Lord & Taylor, where she created JustBOBBI, an in-store and digital lifestyle concept boutique.

    A New York Times best-selling author, Brown has written nine books, most recently, Beauty from the Inside Out. She was appointed by President Obama to the Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiation, and has received the Glamour Woman of the Year Award. Brown’s message remains the same today as it was when she launched in 1991: "The secret to beauty is simple — be who you are.”
