ABOUT BOBBI BROWN
Tonia DeCosimo, president and editor of P.O.W.E.R Magazine, is proud to spotlight such an empowering woman on the cover of the winter issue. Bobbi Brown has revolutionized beauty through her color palate of natural tones.
Bobbi Brown is a beauty industry titan, world renowned makeup artist, best-selling author, sought-after speaker, and serial entrepreneur. As a professional makeup artist, Bobbi created 10 simple lipsticks that evolved into a global beauty empire. She has written nine beauty and wellness books, many of them New York Times bestsellers, and has launched Beauty Evolution LLC since leaving the eponymously named Bobbi Brown Cosmetics in October 2016.
At a time when stark contours and shiny red lips were in fashion, Brown designed cosmetics to highlight a woman’s natural look, and introduced Bobbi Brown Essentials in 1991. This line of color cosmetics revolutionized the industry. The original brown-based lipstick shades offered a simple way for all women to embrace and highlight their lips. Other groundbreaking products soon followed. Bobbi’s philosophy is straightforward: “Women want to look and feel like themselves, only prettier and more confident.”
In 1995 Bobbi Brown Cosmetics was acquired by The Estée Lauder Companies, where Bobbi served as Chief Creative Officer, building a billion-dollar brand.
Unwilling to rest on her laurels, Bobbi has returned to her roots as an entrepreneur. Her latest endeavor is EVOLUTION_18, a line of lifestyle-inspired wellness products that launched on QVC in the spring of 2018. Another, justBobbi.com, also launched this past spring, is a platform for Bobbi to share many of her life inspirations. In addition, Bobbi and her husband Steven Plofker recently opened and redesigned The George, a 32-room design-inspired, boutique hotel in Montclair, New Jersey.
Bobbi’s gift for translating trends into real-life applications has made her a sought-after expert on television, in magazines and newspapers, and online. Bobbi’s message resonates with diverse audiences. She is the Beauty & Lifestyle Editor of Elvis Duran and The Morning Show, and she continues to work editorially, penning columns for Charlotte’s Book, Purewow, and Naturally, Danny Seo.
Born in Chicago and a graduate of Emerson College, Bobbi’s entrepreneurial impact extends beyond fashion and beauty. She has received the Glamour Woman of the Year Award, The Fashion Group International Night of Stars Beauty Award, and The Jackie Robinson Foundation’s ROBIE Humanitarian Award, to name a few. She was appointed by President Obama to the Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiation and has been inducted into the New Jersey Hall of Fame. She also holds honorary doctorates from Montclair State University, Fashion Institute of Technology, Monmouth University, and Emerson College.
