Estee Lauder

Now, what can we say about the amazing Miss Lauder that you don't already know! How about she was the only women in the TIME Magazine's 1988  20 most influential business geniuses of the 20th century! Not only that but we have her to thank for innovating department store makeup counters and celebrity endorsements.

Florence Nightingale Graham

I bet you never knew that the founder of Elizabeth Arden was actually called Florence Nightingale Graham. However, because of the names association with our super hero nurse Florence her products weren't selling and she had to change the name of her brand! She taught women how to apply makeup and dress for careers outside the home after World War 2! 

Eugene Rimmel

Rimmel is the man who changed billions of eyelashes by inventing the first commercially available mascara. To this day, “rimmel” is still the word for mascara in languages ranging from Italian to Turkish.

Who are your favourite inspirations?
