About Trish McEvoy

Beauty maven Trish McEvoy revolutionized makeup application in the 1970s with the advent of makeup brushes shaped to simplify and enhance makeup application. With her husband, renowned dermatologist Dr. Ronald Sherman, she opened the doors of the Dr. Ronald Sherman/Trish McEvoy Skin Care Center in New York in 1978 and pioneered the marriage of beauty and science that is now an industry standard.

For more than three decades Trish has been committed to the creation of the highest quality products while putting professional makeup application skills in every woman’s hands through her unique teaching program. The invention of her iconic Makeup Planner in the early 1990s established Trish’s place as the author of makeup organization and functionality. Through countless public appearances Trish and her team have a grassroots, one-woman-at-a-time approach to teaching makeup applications that work and stripping away the inessential clutter from our makeup bags, beauty routines and lives.
