Bobbi Brown had a revolutionary idea: to create a natural-look makeup line that would make people feel like the best version of themselves. She launched it from her home to overnight success, and today is back with her blockbuster clean DTC brand, Jones Road.
Bobbi Brown started out as a makeup artist in New York City, but hated the gaudy color palette of the 1980s. She eventually shook up the industry by introducing "nude makeup" with neutral colors and a natural tone. In 1995, Estée Lauder acquired Bobbi Brown Cosmetics and Bobbi remained there for 22 years, until she realized the brand was no longer the one she had built.
Timeless Interview: Bobbi Brown, Founder of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics & Jones Road
How Leaders Lead with David Novak
How does the creator of one of the world’s most well known beauty brands, pivot to the wellness category and find her footing in a place where authenticity, realness and reality are key? David gets the story behind Bobbi Brown, the brand and the woman who turned her lipstick-making hobby into a billion dollar brand, only to sell it in search of a new challenge – the wellness market. He gets to the story behind the story, where from an early age, Bobbi watched her grandfather in his business, building up security and comfort to be “Just Bobbi.” Always working to make things better, Bobbi left Estée Lauder after 22 years to try her hand at wellness products. This gave her the freedom to solve problems in unexpected ways and lead a creative team who is not content with the norm. Her lack of fear and excitement to jump into new opportunities with a risk of failure, keeps Bobbi from feeling like she missed a moment. Her desire to create something more authentic has driven her through her career. Whether it be more natural toned lipsticks and makeup that bring out the innate beauty in women, or finding that natural product that brings out the best in someone - has naturally guided her devotion to raising up other women, creating role models and to pursue wellness and success in life.

Habits and Hustle
Bobbi Brown is the Founder/CCO, Jone Road Beauty and Evolution_18. Embracing the overemphasis on “normal” Bobbi has cut out an accessible and long-lasting position in the makeup world.

Certainly, it helps to be interested in makeup, but this episode has so much valuable information on starting and growing a business, making earnest connections and seeing those through to opportunities, knowing how to ask for what you want, and so much more.

It seems crazy to think that there was a time when entrepreneur, creatrix and makeup maven Bobbi Brown didn’t know what she wanted to do with her life, but like many young people it took some coaxing to decide on a career path. However, once she realized her passion lay in makeup artistry, there was no looking back. Working as a freelance artist in NYC, Bobbi was unimpressed with the popular color palettes at the time, preferring to mix her own shades. Credited with popularizing the “natural” makeup look, Bobbi’s creativity led to her own makeup line, which then paved the way for a multitude of businesses to follow. This Renaissance woman has written numerous books, owns a hotel, and has launched several wellness and makeup brands since her namesake line first debuted, all the while carving out time for herself and her family and learning the art of patience along the way.

Ep 49: Building a Beauty Empire: Staying True to Yourself, with Bobbi Brown
All That Glitters
Building a business doesn't happen overnight. But safe to say, if you don't start somewhere, it will never happen. A freelance makeup artist early in her career, Bobbi Brown started in the trenches of the beauty industry before working her way to the top of her own business empire. Now a successful entrepreneur, a bestselling author, and a public speaker, Bobbi Brown shows how far a vision and strong work ethic can take you in your career. In this podcast we discuss Bobbi's new venture, Jones Road, which was born from the idea that every product should be a hero product - that makeup should be clean, and should enhance rather than alter. Bobbi also weighs in on what the idea of beauty means to her, her experiences building - and selling - a company, her internal emotional struggle after stepping away from her namesake business, and most notably, how important it is to stay true to yourself throughout the journey.
Bobbi Brown is a makeup artist and serial entrepreneur, whose eponymous makeup line launched in the early '90s with just 10 lipsticks and quickly became the beauty empire it's known as today. After four years, she sold Bobbi Brown to Estée Lauder with a 25-year non-compete clause in the contract, vowing that she would never want to work in her sixties. But on the day her non-compete expired, Bobbi revealed her new makeup line Jones Road Beauty.Bobbi joins Jennifer on "Just Something About Her" to discuss how the beauty industry has changed since she started as a makeup artist, why adopting a uniform gives her more confidence, and what it's like to be the boss again.
