If you've never tried Trish McEvoy cosmetics - and you're game to work in a little clothes shopping this weekend - I would make plans to hit Serendipity Boutique.
Serendipity owner Barbara Lym and regional makeup artist Alex Adell - with makeup artists in tow - are hosting a makeover event featuring the Trish McEvoy line from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the boutique, 5362 H St., next to Selland's Market.
What's so special about Trish? Well, she really knows the how-tos of applying makeup. As a makeup artist in the 1970s in New York, she figured out that most women had the cosmetics, they just didn't have the proper tools, especially the brushes. So, a good set of brushes was one of the first things she came up with.
Much of Trish's line includes palettes of color (some just for lips, some just for eyes, some with everything you need).
After you have your makeup done Saturday, check out Barbara's great supply of cotton tees, breezy dresses and skirts, plus one-of-a-kind accessories and jewelry.
Heck, then have a cool drink at Selland's. And take dinner home. Don't cook. After all, you just had your makeup done!
