by | Aug 5, 2018

The launch of the trailblazing makeup line Ruby & Millie exactly 20 years ago this Monday. Developed by magic hands makeup artist Ruby Hammer & Millie Kendall who went on to co-found BeautyMART & British Beauty Council, this was a pivotal event in beauty being truly new, exciting & entrepreneurial – it positively reshaped the curve – launching in Harvey Nichols first, Selfridges & Boots. Of that time Millie recalls that “it was all word of mouth – that was the way to build a business. So it had to be a good product because you relied on honest endorsement & recommendation”. Ruby & Millie was a great product & a big step forward for our business on many levels.
