ESTEEMED MAKEUP ARTIST TRISH M C EVOY SHARES HER SECRETS FOR A RADIANT WEDDING DAY.
What are your favorite wedding day looks? A woman looking like herself at her prettiest, happiest, radiant best! Her makeup should suit her personal style and be natural looking, longwearing and adjusted to photograph well.
Any tips for the groom? He should get his skin exfoliated and eyebrows groomed.
The Makeup Planner is one of your best-selling products. How can it help streamline the getting ready process?
t 25, McEvoy founded Trish McEvoy Beauty, which became a multimillion dollar company just five years later. Then in 1978, she partnered with her husband, Dr. Ronald Sherman, to open the Trish McEvoy/Dr. Ronald Sherman Skin Care Center—the very first medispa in the U.S.—in New York City. Well known for her amazing brushes, products and Makeup Planners, McEvoy is eager to teach every bride how to glow.
When should a woman start preparing her wedding day beauty plan? As soon as she gets engaged! In the months leading up to the big day, she should follow a customized exercise, facial and skincare regimen, depending on her specific needs, to make sure she looks her best.
My patented Makeup Planner is the only portable makeup vanity. I designed it to make women’s lives easier when it comes to makeup organization. Its refillable mirrored magnetic “pages” hold individual pans of eye and face color, keeping all your makeup in one place and visible at a glance, while adjacent brush sleeves are instantly accessible. The allaround zipper makes it portable.
Can you tell us a little about your makeup lessons? Women leave my lessons and the makeup lessons my artists teach confident in their ability to apply their own makeup well. We demonstrate and test the client on each step one feature at a time, ensuring a woman can execute the step herself and duplicate her look at home. We take the guesswork out of the steps that make a difference, and demystify how each of our clients can achieve her desired look.
What’s new at the Dr. Ronald Sherman/Trish McEvoy Skin Care Center? It houses a full medical and cosmetic dermatology practice and beauty studio under one roof. All my skincare products are created in partnership with my Skin Care Center. From injectables and laser treatments to facials, microdermabrasion and chemical peels, to airbrush tanning, lash extensions, brow and makeup services, we have a well-edited list of popular treatments that are all recommended based on the age and needs of the individual.
How much should time of day and time of year influence a bride’s makeup choices? I don’t believe they should. Beautiful wedding makeup is timelessly beautiful. But a dramatic red lip and smoky eye, while timeless, are probably not appropriate for a bride. B R I D A L
