makeup artist and founder of bobbi brown cosmetics
This is a picture of me, Bobbi Brown
My name is Bobbi Brown and I am a makeup artist. I also invented my company Bobbi Brown cosmetics. Although I do not own the company now, Estee Lauder does, I still remain in full creative control of the company. I was born in Chicago, Illinois. Now my products are sold in more than 400 stores and 20 countries all across the world I am very proud of myself and so is New Jersey. I currently live in Montclair, NJ with my husband Steven Plofker and kids. New Jersey is proud of me because I do a lot of charity work.
I currently support two charities. One of the charities I support is "Dress For Success". This charity gives less fortunate people nice clothes and tools to help them succeed in work and life the other charity I support is "Jane Addams High School for Academic Careers". This organization has a very meaningful story of why I support it. I would've been a teacher if I weren’t a makeup artist. Over the holidays, for the past 4 years I have been donating money to this cause. Normally what I do with the money is remodel a classroom, donate laptops, and even offer paid summer internships to the students.
I had a hard time in school. At first I went to the University Of Wisconsin and University of Arizona. I decided I wasn't following my dreams, dropped out, and attended Emerson College in Boston. I also obtained my degree in theatrical makeup in 1979. I started my life as a cosmetic buyer at Bergdorf Goodman, an upscale department store in New York City. When I went to one of the parties for Bergdorf Goodman a lady stopped me and asked me about the lipsticks that I had recently produced. That lady provided me with a booth at Saks Fifth Avenue. That is how I started selling my products.
Now days my company has grown outside of lipsticks. I now manufacture concealers, blush, foundation, mascara, eyeliner, bronzer, eye shadow, and pretty much any makeup you can think of. To imagine this all grew out of lipsticks!!! I now have written five instructional books teaching young adults and adults all about makeup and how to use it. Most of all I teach them what I think " You can be beautiful without makeup. You are beautiful." I have had a very mixed up life but I think maybe, just maybe I have found my true passion.
