Estee Lauder. The Woman, The Legend.-Beauty in History.

Find out some great real facts about the woman behind the brand, "Estee Lauder".

Hello Inquisitive beauties!

Today I'd like to give you a little history about the legend which is Mrs. Estee Lauder.

Estee Lauder started her company in 1946 with just four cosmetic products and a dream to take women's beauty to another level. Josephine Esther Mentzer (Estee Lauder's birth given name) was raised in Queens, New York. She developed a love for beauty and beauty products when an uncle came to visit her family and he created a skin cream. Estee was apparently swept away with the idea of making people beautiful because all through her young adult life she worked in numerous beauty professions. Her first major sale was $800 worth of beauty products to +Saks Fifth Avenue  and the rest was history!

Just four products turned into an 8 billion dollar empire of over 20 brands! Some of which you are all familiar with but may not have known were connected with Estee Lauder Companies. They are as follows:
