What does Bobbi find beautiful? The answer may surprise you? "A strong brow, bedroom eyes, a bump on the nose - these are the features that inspire me. Beauty isn’t about looking perfect. It’s about celebrating your individuality.
Bobbi’s view might seem unconventional. But to women around the world, it comes as a welcome relief.
Bobbi believes that “makeup is a way for a woman to look and feel like herself, only prettier and more confident.” Through Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, Bobbi enables every woman to enhance her unique beauty. With straightforward, easy-to-use cosmetics in timeless hues, all formulated to create a smooth, natural, and healthy appearance.
Even as a young girl, Bobbi was enthralled by makeup. “I remember watching my mother apply her white eye shadow and black liner in her blue gilded bathroom—she was glamorous, but fresh-looking.” And as soon as she was able to work, Bobbi raced to the small cosmetics store in town, where she got her first taste of formal training.
Bobbi’s education continued at Boston’s Emerson College, where she earned a B.F.A. in theatrical makeup. Upon graduation, she moved to New York City to make it as a professional makeup artist. She showed her ever-growing portfolio to anyone who would look at it, slowly built up contacts, and experienced the challenges typical of most freelance makeup artists trying to make it in Manhattan.
But despite the ups and downs, her talent and drive earned her coveted gigs with top magazines, photographers, and models. Bobbi began her collaboration with photographers Bruce Weber, and Arthur Elgort for American Vogue, as well as with the late Francesco Scavullo for Cosmopolitan and Self. A seven-page spread of full-face beauty shots of supermodel Tatiana Patitz—shot by Wayne Maser—also put Bobbi’s work front and center.
Bobbi’s big breakthrough was her first American Vogue cover. The image was shot by famed photographer Patrick Demarchelier and featured the soon-to-be-supermodel Naomi Campbell, made up by Bobbi Brown. Seven years after arriving to New York City knowing no one, Bobbi was part of the club. The industry took notice.
Bobbi’s Big Idea
As a successful makeup artist with access to everything in the market, Bobbi found nearly all products looked too artificial, making it impossible to create a gorgeous, no-makeup look.
Ten years into her freelance career, a chance meeting with a chemist at a magazine photo shoot changed everything. “I had the idea to create a lipstick that didn’t smell, wasn’t dry or greasy, and looked like lips, only better—and I told the chemist about it,” she says.
The chemist made the lipstick following Bobbi’s unprecedented specifications and the result was Brown Lip Color, a pinky-brown shade. Nine other brown-based lipstick shades followed soon after, and Bobbi’s set of lipsticks was complete.
In 1991, her 10 lipsticks debuted at the Bergdorf Goodman under the name of Bobbi Brown essentials. Bobbi was expecting to sell 100 in a month. She sold 100 within the first day.
The message was clear: Women wanted makeup that was simple, flattering, and wearable.
The Birth of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics
Word spread quickly. Bobbi’s unique approach to cosmetics was a long-awaited gift for women who wanted a more natural look. The magazine industry’s most prominent beauty editors got behind Bobbi, and her small, insider brand garnered big time buzz.
The range expanded beyond lipstick. Bobbi’s foundations were yellow-based, not pink, revolutionizing face makeup as it’s known today. And, before long, she showed that she was as adept at neutrals as she was at bright and bold colors.
This sea change in the beauty market caught the attention of cosmetics empire Estée Lauder, who bought Bobbi Brown Cosmetics in 1995, just four years after the company’s inception. Today, Bobbi Brown retains creative control of the brand.
Bobbi Brown Today
In addition to running her company, Bobbi continues to pursue her craft by creating the runway looks for New York Fashion Week. A permanent fixture backstage, she works with the industry’s best designers including Rachel Roy, J. Mendel, Erin Fetherston, Tory Burch and Cynthia Rowley.
Bobbi often does how-to segments on The Today Show and The Oprah Winfrey Show, and her advice can be found in syndicated columns and advice features for magazines and websites around the globe.
Of course, you can always find Bobbi where she began—on the set. Bobbi is still the world’s most celebrated makeup artists for personalities and fashion magazines.
A New York Times bestselling author, Bobbi has written five instructional and engaging beauty and lifestyle books: Bobbi Brown Beauty, Bobbi Brown Teenage Beauty, Bobbi Brown Beauty Evolution, Bobbi Brown Living Beauty and Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual.
For Bobbi, making other people’s lives better simply makes sense. “I love helping others because it feels good,” she says. On a year-round basis, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics donates generous financial and in-kind support to organizations including Dress for Success and the Jane Addams Vocational High School.

Bobbi Brown - General Terms and Conditions for Online Product Sales
Date of Last Update: January 31st, 2019
Welcome to our Bobbi Brown UK website (the “Bobbi Brown UK Site” or the “Site”).
By placing an order with Estee Lauder Cosmetics Limited (“Bobbi Brown”, “we”, “us” or “our”) for products which are sold on the Site (“Products”) you will be deemed to have read, understood and agreed to these Terms and Conditions (“Terms and Conditions”). Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully and, if you are unhappy with any aspect of these, then you should contact one of our customer service advisors before placing an order with us.
We amend these Terms and Conditions from time to time. Please look at the top of these Terms and Conditions to see when these Terms and Conditions were last updated. Every time you order Products from us, the Terms and Conditions in force at the time of your order will apply to the contract between you and us. If we have to revise these Terms and Conditions and this has a material impact on your order, we will contact you to give you reasonable advance notice of the changes and let you know how to cancel the contract if you are not happy with the changes.

2. Other Policies
The following additional policies (which can be accessed by clicking on the link below) also form part of these Terms and Conditions and should be read carefully before placing an order:
3. Our Contract with You
We will notify you by email as soon as possible to acknowledge receipt of your order and to provide you with an order number. If we are unable to fulfil your order following this acknowledgement, we will contact you by email or telephone advising you of this. We will confirm acceptance of your order by sending you an email that confirms that the Products have been dispatched (“Dispatch Confirmation”). A legally binding contract between us will be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation (or, in the unlikely event that a Dispatch Confirmation is not sent due to a processing error, when we dispatch the Products to you) (“Contract”). If you require any information concerning your order please email us at email@example.com quoting your order number. We may not accept your order if an item you have ordered is out of stock, if we have identified a Product or pricing error if we are unable to obtain authorisation for your payment. Please note that we reserve the right to reject any offer to purchase by you at any time.
If you wish to make a change to the Products you have ordered please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the Product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change. If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the Contract (please see clause 5 below).
A Product will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the Product to the address you gave us or you collect it from us.
You own a Product once we have received payment in full.
4. Purchase-Related Policies
The Products and services available on the Site, and any samples thereof we may provide to you, are for personal use only. You may not sell or resell any of the Products or services, or samples thereof, you purchase or otherwise receive from us. Please note that samples are subject to availability. We reserve the right, with or without notice, to cancel or reduce the quantity of any orders that we believe, in our sole discretion, may result in the violation of our Terms and Conditions.
The images of the Products on the Site are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device’s display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the Products. Your Product may vary slightly from those images. The packaging of Products may also vary from that shown in images on our website.
The purchase of Products through the Site is strictly limited to parties who can lawfully enter into and form contracts on the Site in accordance with English law.
You may only purchase Products from our site if you are at least 18 years old.
5. Cancellation Rights
We hope that you are delighted with your order, however, because you are a consumer and have purchased your Product online, you have a legal right to cancel your Contract under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 from the date of the Dispatch Confirmation (the date on which we email you to confirm our acceptance of your order) until the date which is 14 days after you receive the Products. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep a Product, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund.
Your right to return goods does not apply to goods:
- made to your specification; or
- which have been clearly personalised (such as by being engraved); or
- which by reason of their nature cannot be returned or are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly; or
- where sealed goods have been supplied which are not suitable for return due to health protection or hygiene reasons, if they become unsealed after delivery.
To cancel a Contract, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. The easiest way to do this is to complete the cancellation form on our website. If you use this method we will email you to confirm we have received your cancellation. A copy of the cancellation form may also be included in hard copy form with your order packaging. In addition, you can contact our Customer Services Team on 0800 054 2988 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are emailing us or writing to us please include details of your order to help us to identify it. If you send us your cancellation form by email or by post, then your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the email or post us the letter.
If you cancel your Contract we will:
- refund you the price you paid for the Products. However, please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop (or you can choose to have such goods returned to you within 14 days of our notification that we intend to make a deduction). If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
- refund any delivery costs you have paid, although, as permitted by law, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer.
- make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within 14 days after the day on which we receive the Products back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Products back to us.
- refund you on the credit card or debit card or other payment method used by you to pay. If you used vouchers to pay for the Products we may refund you in vouchers. You will receive email notification of your refund from our Customer Services Team.
If you indicate in your cancellation request that you would rather receive an exchange than a refund then this will be processed within 7 working days of receiving your returned goods and will be delivered via standard delivery. In these circumstances a new Contract will be deemed to have been formed between us in relation to the new Product you have selected (and your various rights of cancellation and return as set out herein will apply to that Product). In the event that we are not able to satisfy your request for an exchange then we will refund you the cost of the Product and the original Contract between us will be cancelled.
If a Product has been dispatched to you or you have received them before you decide to cancel your Contract then:
- then you must return it to us without undue delay (in the original product packaging if possible) and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the Contract;
- you can either send it back to us at Bobbi Brown Online Customer Services, Constellation House, 3 Kite’s Croft Business Park, Warsash Road, Fareham, Hants, PO14 4FL or return it to any Bobbi Brown store with your completed cancellation form (please note that online orders will not be able to be returned in store if you paid by PayPal);
- when returning goods please obtain a proof of postage (we do not accept responsibility for goods lost in transit) and ensure that the parcel is adequately sealed;
- customers wishing to return fragrance Products should have regard to any labelling and packaging guidelines produced by Royal Mail or any other courier that is used; and
- unless the Product is faulty or not as described you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Product to us.
If you cancel your order but do not send off such goods to us within 14 working days of notifying us of cancellation, we shall be entitled to withhold payment of any refund.
If you made your purchase through a partnered retail location, such as an airport or department store, then any return will need to be made in accordance with the returns/cancellation policy of the relevant retailer and should not be returned directly to us. Similarly, if you purchased products on the Bobbi Brown website or in a Bobbi Brown store, you must return them in accordance with the procedure outlined here and not directly to a partnered retail location.
6. Your Other Statutory Rights to Return Products under the Consumer Rights Act 2015
Because you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply Products that are in conformity with the Contract. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights (which are summarised in general terms below) are not affected by your right of return and refund in clause 5 above or anything else in these Terms and Conditions or elsewhere on this Site.
The Consumer Rights Act 2015 says goods must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. During the expected lifespan of your Products your legal rights entitle you to the following:
- up to 30 days: if your goods are faulty, then you can get an immediate refund.
- up to six months: if your goods can’t be repaired or replaced, then you’re entitled to a full refund, in most cases.
- after six months (depending on the type of Product): if your goods do not last a reasonable length of time you may be entitled to some money back.
7. Our Liability for Loss or Damage Suffered by You
We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these Terms and Conditions, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the Products as summarised at clause 6 and for defective Products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
We only supply Products for domestic and private use. You agree not to use the Products for any commercial, business or resale purposes, and we have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
8. Transfer of Rights
We may transfer our rights and obligations under these Terms and Conditions to another organisation, and we will always notify you in writing if this happens, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these Terms and Conditions. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these Terms and Conditions to another person if we agree in writing.
In case of complaint about your online purchase, you may contact us by email at email@example.com or write to us at Bobbi Brown Online Customer Services, Constellation House, 3 Kite’s Croft Business Park, Warsash Road, Fareham, Hants, PO14 4FL.

These Terms and Conditions shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales and proceedings may be brought in relation to the matters set out herein in the courts of England and Wales.

Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
At Bobbi Brown, we respect the human rights of our employees, suppliers and the communities in which we operate. We are committed to upholding the principles contained in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015.
By law, companies like ours in the UK are required to disclose publicly the steps we are taking to identify and eradicate forced labour and human trafficking from our supply chains. We are part of a multinational group of companies that operates around the world. The following describes the efforts of our group, including in the UK:
We require our suppliers to operate in compliance with all applicable laws, including laws pertaining to forced, trafficked or child labour. Under no circumstances do we allow suppliers to use forced, trafficked, child, prison, indentured or bonded labour, or use corporal punishment or other forms of mental and physical coercion as a form of discipline.
Our work in this area is governed by our Global Supplier Relations team (GSR), which has representatives in each of our regions. GSR, in partnership with Global Quality Assurance, Research & Development, Global Regulatory Affairs, and Global Corporate Responsibility, is responsible for ensuring that the suppliers with whom we do business meet the expectations for ethical behaviour outlined in our Supplier Code of Conduct.
Our Supplier Code of Conduct is the foundation we use to set expectations. It is the basis for how we evaluate and help our suppliers meet our high ethical and quality standards in the procurement of our product ingredients and materials. The Supplier Code of Conduct, in conjunction with our standard purchasing contracts, requires that suppliers be in full compliance with all applicable governmental, legal, regulatory, and professional rules and regulations. The Supplier Code of Conduct includes our prohibition on employing forced, trafficked, child, prison, indentured or bonded labour, and using corporal punishment or other forms of mental and physical coercion as a form of discipline.
Forced and child labour are included as risk categories in our supplier risk evaluations and when necessary, we use a third-party firm to assess the potential presence of child labour or forced labour in the supply chain.
New suppliers must agree to comply with our Supplier Code of Conduct before they are awarded our business. Bobbi Brown requires its high-risk suppliers to undergo an audit conducted by an independent, third-party auditor at least every two years. Currently, the auditors utilise the Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit (SMETA) Best Practice Guidelines and audit report format. If a supplier appears to be in non-compliance with the Supplier Code of Conduct, Bobbi Brown expects the supplier to co-operate and provide such additional information to Bobbi Brown as may be required by Bobbi Brown in order for it to make a determination whether the supplier is in compliance. If Bobbi Brown determines that the supplier is not in compliance, then the remedies may include, among other things, termination of business with Bobbi Brown or the development and implementation of a corrective action plan that would need to be implemented within a certain fixed time period. Bobbi Brown may follow such implementation with an audit, as it deems appropriate.
In addition to requiring our suppliers to comply with our Supplier Code of Conduct, Bobbi Brown has used some certification standards providing third-party certification that certain raw materials we purchase are produced without the use of forced labour, including the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) and the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
Internal Accountability and Training
Regarding our employee base, Bobbi Brown is committed to the highest standards of professional and personal conduct. All employees and officers of Bobbi Brown are expected to conduct themselves within the letter and spirit of our Employee Code of Conduct. at all times.
All newly hired employees must sign an acknowledgment that they have received the Employee Code of Conduct, understand its contents, and agree to comply with its terms throughout their employment with Bobbi Brown. Breaches of the Employee Code of Conduct are treated with the utmost severity and will result in disciplinary action.
In addition, on an annual basis, certain management employees are required to re-certify their compliance with and continued commitment to compliance with the Code.
For further information about our wider sustainability efforts, please see our latest Sustainability and Citizenship Report.
Since the publication of last year’s anti-slavery and human trafficking statement, we have taken the following further steps to tackle forced labour and human trafficking during the fiscal year ending 30th June 2017:
- Included specific provisions in our standard purchasing contracts requiring suppliers to comply with the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and commit contractually that neither they nor any other person in their supply chain uses trafficked, bonded, child or forced labour or has attempted to use trafficked, bonded, child or forced labour within their supply chain.
- Required prospective suppliers in higher-risk industries to provide information about the steps they are taking to eradicate forced labour and human trafficking from their supply chain when bidding to supply goods and services to Bobbi Brown.
- Provided additional training on our Supplier Code of Conduct to select Bobbi Brown employees responsible for engaging with suppliers.
This statement is made in accordance with section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes Bobbi Brown's slavery and human trafficking statement for the fiscal year which ended on 30th June 2017. It was approved by the board of directors of Estee Lauder Cosmetics Limited on 5th December 2017.
