Behind luxury beauty brand By Terry

Created by Terry de Gunzburg, By Terry was inspired by the art that she had collected over many years that created a bold, original vision of beauty with innovative products.

Originally from the southern Mediterranean, Terry lives between Paris and London, and loves to travel. She is a master of design and has established herself as an architect of women's beauty who sees colour in all its depths.

Coming from a family of scientists it was only natural that Terry should begin studying medicine. However, she soon abandoned these studies for the world of art and creation. It was during a summer session at the prestigious beauty school of the Carita sisters that Terry's life took a new turn. She went on to spend ten years with Maria and Rosy Carita. Following a last-minute cancellation, Maria Carita asked Terry to do the make-up on a model for a photo session with Vogue. From that moment on, she imposed her own, distinctive style – and it remains her style today.

The brand creates true objects of beauty that hold treasures of technology and sophistication, excellence and expertise. Including Make-Up, Skincare and Fragrance, the philosophy of the brand is embodied in multi-purpose, multi-benefit formulas that also offer superior technological and sensorial properties.

Beauty is not a stereotype; your personal style is your own signature, to be expressed day by day. - Terry de Gunzburg
