The beauty industry has always been a male-dominated field, but that doesn’t mean women haven’t made their mark on it. Whether you’re looking for a new lipstick color or some new hair products, there’s no denying that some of the most famous makeup brands have been created by women—and many more are still being run by them today. Here are just a few of the women who revolutionized the makeup industry:

Helena Rubinstein

Helena Rubinstein was born in Poland and moved to Paris as a young woman. She quickly became one of the most influential businesswomen in Europe, founding her own cosmetics company on Rue Royale in 1909. A socialite and trendsetter, she hosted lavish parties at her home in Paris’s Faubourg Saint-Honore (which still exists today).

She was also an outspoken advocate for women’s rights, supporting suffragettes like Emmeline Pankhurst during World War II by providing them with makeup kits so they could paint their faces when protesting for equal rights outside Buckingham Palace or Parliament House.

Revlon’s Frank Angelo

Frank Angelo was the first man to head a major cosmetics company. In 1972, he launched a national advertising campaign featuring model Lauren Hutton as spokesperson for Revlon’s newest fragrance, Charlie. At the time, this was considered revolutionary: no other brand had ever used a celebrity spokesperson in an ad campaign before–and it paid off; sales of Charlie increased by more than 50 percent within three months of its release!

Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel was the first to introduce the idea of a designer brand. She made fashion as a form of self-expression popular, and she was a pioneer in using perfume as an accessory.

Coco Chanel is credited with inventing the little black dress, which has become one of the most iconic pieces in womenswear history. The classic look was born from Coco’s desire for simplicity and elegance–she wanted women to feel comfortable while wearing what they wanted rather than being dictated by society at large or their husbands’ tastes. Because she was able to think outside of this box (and break down barriers), Coco became an inspiration for many other female entrepreneurs who followed her example!

Elizabeth Arden

Elizabeth Arden was a pioneer in the beauty industry and is credited with introducing many of its most important concepts. She was the first to introduce the concept of the spa, which became popular during her time as a businesswoman. She also revolutionized how cosmetics were packaged by wrapping them in paper instead of putting them into glass jars or bottles so that they could be sold at drugstores like other products.

Finally, Elizabeth created a line for men’s grooming products called Eau de Cologne that would later become known as Brut cologne after World War II (1939-1945).

Estee Lauder

Estee Lauder was the founder of Estee Lauder. She was born Josephine Esther Mentzer in Queens, New York in 1908 to Jewish immigrants from Austria-Hungary. Her father Max Mentzer could not read or write but supported his family by working as a tailor while her mother Edna Fiedler worked as a bookkeeper at Macy’s department store. She attended public school until eighth grade when she dropped out to help support her family by working at various part-time jobs including babysitting and assisting with household chores around their apartment building–a task made more difficult due to her diminutive stature (she stood 4 feet 11 inches tall).

Estee married Joseph Lauter who sold cars for GMC; they later divorced after having two children together: Leonard and Ronald Lauter (who went on inherit much of their mother’s fortune). After divorcing Joe Lauter she met Arthur Taubman who was running Saks Fifth Avenue at the time; he fell in love with her instantly but she rejected him because he wasn’t Jewish enough for her standards! Years later when Arthur became chairman & CEO of Saks Fifth Avenue Holdings Inc., he finally got his wish when they married again – this time legally binding their relationship forever!

Women have been involved in the beauty industry from its earliest days.

Women have been involved in the beauty industry from its earliest days. In fact, it’s believed that ancient Egyptians were the first to use cosmetics and apply them to their skin.

In today’s world of makeup, you can find many different brands that cater specifically to women. There are also some companies that offer more than just one type of product; they offer several types of products including: foundation, blush and eyeliner–just to name a few! These companies often sell these products at department stores or online stores like Sephora and Ulta Beauty (which both sell makeup).

The history behind how this all came about is pretty interesting too! It turns out that over time there have been many different types of people contributing towards improving how we look by way of using things like color palettes or even brushes made outta animal hairs insteadta synthetic ones (like today).

Conclusion

Makeup is a powerful tool for self-expression, but it’s also a way for women to feel more confident in their own skin. Many of the women we’ve featured here have used their influence to help others feel this way too, whether through their work as makeup artists or by advocating for positive body image in mainstream media.
