ABOUT FACE

PERFECT PLAN

By Elizabeth Abbey

Waltz into winter with a fresh glow courtesy of internationally renowned makeup artist Trish McEvoy’s beauty secrets. During her recent visit to Atlanta’s own Woo Skincare + Cosmetics, McEvoy shared her tricks of the trade, ranging from minimized eye shadow to maximized highlighting. “My favorite beauty looks are either when you look very natural or just that pop of definition that dresses up the face,” says McEvoy, who uses her iconic Even Skin water foundation ($85) to create a silky and flawless base that melts into the skin for an ultimately natural and perfected appearance. If au naturale is too low-key for the evening’s gala or dinner soiree, enhance it with special attention to brows and eyes for a dramatic yet demure look by swiping her brand-new brow mascara ($30) through the brows and her classic eye pencil ($25) on the upper lash line for added boldness. Her customizable planners are just the thing to put your best face forward this season. 3509 Northside Parkway NW, 404.869.0300, wooskincareandcosmetics.com; trishmcevoy.com
