5 Steps to Better-Looking Skin, Multitasking Products & More with Trish McEvoy

Trish McEvoy interview with Nordstrom.

More than a makeup mogul renowned for her artistry, Trish McEvoy is also a master innovator. She started her company back in the ’70s when, unable to find makeup tools she liked, she hand-cut artists’ brushes into the shapes needed for perfect application. Women and artists around the globe took note when she started manufacturing those brilliant brushes, and her business was born. Today, McEvoy has a full range of beauty products and tools—including amazing fragrances—but at the core her intent is the same as it was from the beginning: to provide women with the tools and techniques to simply unleash The Power of Makeup®.

Former Pro Cricketer and Triumph & Disaster Founder Dion Nash Makes Poetry and Grooming Manly

Shaving is often singled out as something that fathers teach their sons. It is a rite of passage that signals a boy has lived enough to become a man. There are tools; there are potions; there is a certain way one must proceed. It separates the civilized from the less so. Wounds may happen. Blood may spill. Some faces emerge from shaving victorious and smooth. Other faces surface marred by stubble and nicks. It is a skill that men practice throughout their lives, and it is an activity that for many recalls the advice of their fathers.

Triumph & Disaster shave

Dion Nash, a former New Zealand pro cricketer and the founder of men’s grooming line Triumph & Disaster, is keenly aware of the intersection between fatherly advice and self-care. When Nash was a surly 13-year-old, his thoughtful dad handed him Rudyard Kipling’s poem “If,” which contains the line, “If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster/And treat those two impostors just the same”, and concludes “you’ll be a Man, my son!”

Triumph & Disaster Gameface moisturizer

We spoke with Nash about his products, which favor natural ingredients from the South Pacific, whether cricket will ever catch on in the U.S. and what he internalized from that great poem.

Charlotte Tilbury, Makeup Artist to the Stars, Wants to Empower You with Beauty

Charlotte Tilbury makeup artist signature looks.

When your client list reads like a who’s who of the top celebrities and models on earth, you know you’re probably doing a thing or two right. Earlier this month, Charlotte Tilbury, one of the most famous makeup artists out there (go ahead and google it!), came to visit our headquarters and Seattle flagship store. On a whirlwind trip, Tilbury managed to fit in private luncheons with customers, a meet and greet with local influencers and editors and a final in-store appearance, which packed our first floor with scads of fans waiting for her to descend the escalator followed by 10 models, each sporting one of Tilbury’s signature looks. Oh, and she even popped in at our Beauty Stylist call center to pick up the phone and answer a few live questions from customers.

One of the highlights of this gregarious British makeup guru’s visit was witnessing her master classes, where she and her most trusted artists demonstrated makeup looks as she offered tips, tricks and shared a serious wealth of knowledge about her products. Charlotte fell in love with makeup (namely mascara) at a young age and eventually began developing collections for some top brands. As a freelance artist, her talents soon became sought after by, well, pretty much everyone. Now, with over 20 years’ experience in the industry, Tilbury half-jokingly says, “I’ve pretty much done everyone’s makeup but the queen of England.”
