Acclaimed makeup artist Bobbi Brown is stepping down from her role at her namesake brand by the end of 2016
The line was founded 25 years ago and was bought by Estée Lauder in 1995, but even after the sale, Bobbi played an active role in the brand. Now the news of Brown's departure has been confirmed by Estée Lauder Companies.
In a statement issued by Bobbi herself, she said that the brand's 25th anniversary, “made [me] realise it was time to start a new chapter and move on to new ventures.”
Through her brand, Bobbi helped launched the 'natural makeup' trend that changed the way we thought about beauty and makeup. Who hasn't had a Bobbi Brown stick foundation in their beauty arsenal at one stage or another?
There's no word on what her 'new ventures' will be, but we expect them to be very interesting indeed. She already has a successful blog, and then there's the matter of her eponymous eyewear.
