Before lip kits and Sephora, there was Trish McEvoy, whose makeup brushes revolutionized the beauty world. The makeup maven was also the first to open a science-based beauty clinic with her husband, helping New York’s celebrity set look their best for nearly four decades.

Now she’s just come out with what’s being described as “an inspirational playbook for the Everywoman.” Part manifesto, part how-to guide, The Makeup of a Confident Woman is all about how to ditch your insecurities and become your best, most confident self (and look great doing it, of course).

 

Want to hear even more of her tips? McEvoy is coming to Build Studio (692 Broadway at Fourth Street, NoHo) this Friday, March 17, at 1 p.m. for a chat and signing. The event is free with RSVP; books will be available for sale.
