Cosmetic artist Andrew C. Petersen is an internationally trained beauty expert who’s worked with Chanel and Christian Dior Beauty, and spent a decade and a half globetrotting with Trish McEvoy as he accompanied the famed cosmetics maven on personal appearances and helped lead her artist-on-location workshops. “She really taught me the importance of not just doing makeup, but of teaching makeup,” he says. Petersen’s work has been featured in the New York Times, Southern Living, Southern Bride, Domino, Charleston Weddings, The Post & Courier, and Skirt magazine. In Spring 2011, Petersen collaborated with Aesthetispa owner Dr. Christy Cone to launch Misiu Beauty, a cosmetics line he designed to reintroduce high-demand lip gloss shades discontinued by their national lines (“misiu” is a Polish term for those whom you hold close to your heart). He was also featured as one of the six top makeup artists in the country in 2013 for InStyle Magazine in their Little Black Beauty Book! He teaches classes in everyday and theatrical makeup at the Art Institute of Charleston and the Paul Mitchell School. You can find him at his new makeup studio located at Lowcountry Beauty and Wellness Spa. A passion for makeup, beauty, and people has always been Petersen’s driving force. “My goal is to enhance the beauty in individuals one brush stroke at a time,” he says. Photo credit: Diana Deaver
