Meet our brand new Belmodo Guest Editor ... miss Bobbi Brown.

Makeup has always been my passion - it started when I was five years old and got into my mother’s makeup drawer - I began playing with her makeup, applying it to my face, the sink and even the bathroom walls. As I grew up, I still loved playing with makeup and my parents encouraged me to “go for it.”

I went to Emerson College in Boston and graduated with a degree in theatrical makeup. After graduating, I headed to New York to fulfil my dream of working as a professional makeup artist. It was the 1980’s and the look of the moment was loud, garish, and overdone. I soon became frustrated by the lack of flattering makeup on the market. It was impossible to find makeup that looked good on skin. I almost always had to ‘fix’ the products I bought, blending shades together until I got something that looked natural. I saw a major void in the cosmetics industry that I knew I could help address. My vision was to create a cosmetics line that looked natural and would match and complement women's complexions. I started with creating lipstick shades that made lips look like lips, only better.

In 1991 I launched Brown Lip Color and nine other brown-based shades that flattered a women’s natural lip color at Bergdorf Goodman in New York City.  I thought we’d sell 100 in the first month but sold 100 in the first day. I guess you can say the rest is history.
