Dirty Girl Cosmetics was founded in early 2014 out of New York City by Dina Cohen. It was an expression of her love for a classy but yet sexy style aesthetic that she discovered while living in the concrete jungle.
A Dirty Girl is curious in trying new things and not afraid to express her inner, true self. She is the epitome of an independent woman - she defies the traditions of a working woman who can do it all.
I grew up in New Jersey frequenting New York City evenings and weekends. I have always had an eye for fashion and aspired to empower the working woman in the city.
It was back in 2009 that I began styling, branding and doing aesthetics for close friends and family. Soon my passion and dreams blossomed into a growing interest from friends and women who heard of my work. I found myself doing hair, makeup and styling for women of all walks of life with one common thread - they all aspired to be independent, sexy and driven women. This is was the catalyst for starting Dirty Girl Cosmetics. For the Sexy, bossy woman who isn't afraid of what people think of her. She is busy changing the world and looking sexy doing it. She doesn't shy away from being feminine, she embraces it.
Dirty Girl Cosmetics encourages me to continue to be the woman I am today. It is a reminder that that breaks many societal beliefs. I can be a woman and still be independent. A woman and be a boss. A woman and be sexy. A woman and happy.
