The founder

Bésame Cosmetics was founded by Gabriela Hernandez, who immigrated from the United States from Buenos Aires, Argentina at the age of 12. She has created a line infused with a romantic sensibility that is rich in historical details. Her inspiration for it all was sparked by a combination of her background in art and design, a love for feminine detail, and fond memories of her glamorous grandmother.

beauty-bookLaunched in September 2004, Bésame Cosmetics was a culmination of Gabriela's passion for design and her desire to create an original cosmetic with details and formulas that make women feel glamorous and unique. Gabriela created Bésame to become a company that reaches beyond the product, one with solid morals, which acts as a strong role model for young women.

"I want to make a mark of what I am and who I was in the world" Hernandez explains, "I want to contribute something worthwhile through this line and inspire young women to follow their dreams."

Gabriela takes you on a grand tour of the many trends and styles of the classic beauty looks throughout the ages in her book, "Classic Beauty:  History of Makeup".
