Following 25 years in business, make-up artist, and Montclair resident, Bobbi Brown has announced she is stepping down from her namesake company she founded in 1991, by the end of this year, reports Forbes.
Bobbi Brown Cosmetics was acquired by Estée Lauder Companies Inc. in 1995, with Brown as the Chief Creative Officer. Fans of the line don’t have to worry, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics will continue.
