Even before her brand became synonymous with a fresh, simple, modern expression of beauty, Bobbi Brown was the go-to woman in the New York fashion world for natural make-up looks. "When you worked with photographers like Bruce Weber, Brigitte Lacombe and Patrick Demarchelier, skin had to look like skin and lips had to look like lips. It wasn’t about unusual, artificial make-up – it was much more about underscoring natural beauty", Bobbi remembers.

In an era of exaggerated contours and unnatural make-up, Bobbi Brown and her concept of natural looks represented a refreshing new impetus. "It was the 80s, and the look was always: very light-colored skin, red lips, contoured cheeks – everything I didn’t find beautiful", says Bobbi. Frustrated by the dearth of flattering colors available, she decided to create her own nuanced shades. In collaboration with a chemist she developed Brown Lip Color - "A lipstick that looks like your own lip color, only better" – followed by nine additional brown tones.

In 1991, Bobbi Brown started selling her first ten lipsticks at a stand at Bergdorf Goodman’s in New York, and was surprised by her own success. She sold 100 lipsticks on the very first day – the sum she had expected to sell over the first month. Four years after the launch of those ten lipsticks, Estée Lauder bought the BOBBI BROWN brand.
