Charlotte Ronson didn’t have to look far to find inspiration for her new beauty line. To introduce Charlotte Ronson Beauty — coming exclusively to Sephora this fall — the designer hosted an intimate dinner at Il Sole in Los Angeles Tuesday night with friends and family, some of whom are muses for the line.

“I’m always inspired by friends and family, that’s how you learn and these are the women in my day to day so it just made sense to name products after them,” Ronson told PEOPLE of friends including Nicole Richie, Rashida Jones and sister Samantha Ronson, all of whom inspired products.

The line, which features cosmetics, accessories and haircare, was a natural fit for the accomplished designer. “[Sephora] did beauty for my runway shows for the past couple of seasons and we connected and had the same vision,” Ronson said. “It has the feel of being based on a fashion brand.”

Made for ‘the girl on the go,’ the products are designed to go from day to night. “For me less is more always and I’m also about layering,” she shared. “A lot of the products you can use a little and it looks soft or you can really layer for the nighttime and really push it.”

And not surprisingly, Ronson’s work is already receiving raves. “I look up to her as an artist so much in general and what I do respect about her so much is that she doesn’t take on projects just to take on projects,” pal Richie told PEOPLE. “She really studies them and gets to know her craft and that is what she did with this makeup. When it finally came to life I was obviously so proud of her and honored that she asked me to take part in her collection.”

Charlotte Ronson Beauty is set to debut Sept. 15 and will feature new products each season.
