How did Milani come to be the cosmetic line that we know and love today? The founders of Milani, siblings Ralph Bijou and Laurie Minc, originally owned a cosmetic company by the name Jordana. In 2002, after having been inspired by the cutting-edge fashion of the city of Milan, Italy, they chose to open another makeup brand in the same store as Jordana. They called their new franchise Milani
, as a tribute to the city of its inspiration.
Milani is a high-end drugstore cosmetic brand – quality makeup for a reduced price. Its popularity lies in its unique color shades that are appropriate for all skin tones, including women of color and the very fair-skinned. Similarly, their makeup is known for its rich, pigmented color and superior quality.
