‘I don’t know if I was always confident. I always felt that it was important to understand that you have to be the strongest that you can be in life and if you’re strong then everything comes and you really have to build yourself every day and strengthen yourself every day.’
When Trish McEvoy founded Trish McEvoy beauty back in 1975, how women used make-up and what might be missing from their bags was at the forefront of her mind.
She started with brushes, after which she continued to add to the range, but always with the view that products should be hardworking to deserve a place in a busy woman’s mirror time.
In this episode, she tells her compelling story, and explains how a dash of chutzpah and her innate ability to see things through helped her enormously in business.
She also touches on working as a make-up artist in 1970s New York and her hugely famous clients (Jackie Kennedy and Madonna feature), her thoughts on ageing, and how beauty can act as a mask in the best possible sense.
