Robin is a 25-year beauty industry veteran with successes as a writer, editor, public relations/media expert, and entrepreneur. Following a bucket list trip to India in 2020, she witnessed how Western consumerism impacts developing nations – and decided she didn’t want to perpetuate this cycle any longer. With a passion for beauty, travel, learning about cultures, and media savvy, Robin created Beautyologie.com in 2021, an online beauty marketplace catering to conscious beauty consumers who want their dollars to make a difference. Since Beautyologie’s inception, Robin has secured 50+ brand partnerships with global producers, and garnered favorable press in media outlets (including Bloomberg, Byrdie, and The Good Trade). Beauty Independent recently awarded Beautyologie an Honoree Retail Award for “Audience Educator.” She has been recognized as one of “40 Social Entrepreneurs to Watch for in 2022” by Cause Artist. Additionally, Robin has opened 3 brick-and-mortar shop-in-shop locations across Southern California. Robin received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from the University of California – Irvine. During her undergraduate degree, she fueled her love of travel by completing a study abroad in South France. Eager to continue exploring the world, she secured internships in London and began working as a freelance writer for several media outlets, including Entertainment Weekly magazine. In 1998, she landed her first beauty editor position at teen magazine Jump. The daughter of an entrepreneur, Robin has always had the drive to create. In the early 2000s, she conceptualized and launched two retail businesses. Wrap Star, a hair accessories company, sold products in 200 retailers across the U.S. (including Fred Segal and Henri Bendel) and was featured in InStyle, Glamour, and People magazines. She also co-founded Innies ‘n Outies, a children’s clothing line, which launched 2 successful seasonal collections.
