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, Charleston Magazine, Charleston Weddings, InStyle Magazine, 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 from time to time and theatrical makeup at the Art Institute of Charleston and the Paul Mitchell School. Andrew has recently made the big jump and gone on his own to pursue his passions. He loves working with brides, but insists on making it a very personal experience with no rush. Andrew will commit to only one wedding per day so the bride gets all of the attention she deserves. He has had the pleasure of working with the cast of the View, John Mayer, Pat Conroy, Julie Newmar, Anna Wintour, Katie Couric, and Jennifer Lopez. He is now settled in Charleston where he has the most wonderful clients. Andrew also really focuses on weddings and travels around the country to make sure the bride looks absolutely gorgeous. Recently published in his first book, which was small but so flattering for a friend to include him in her masterpiece. Call it an opening door, but it has unleashed a passion for the many facets of writing. He is the beauty expert for his beloved and has many exciting things coming up in the near future. Andrew loves Charleston and is will always be indebted to those that have been here for generations, help make it a home. Since he is all over the place, please reach out to Andrew for Wedding, Bat Mitzva, Event Makeup, and Personal Beauty Shopping/Concierge. Either email at [email protected] or phone 843 817 0303 to contact Andrew personally. 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.

The beauty philosophy I share with treasured clients is simple: makeup should enhance your features, conceal little secrets and ultimately showcase the most gorgeous you! The beauty products I apply are individualized and perfected to your comfort level. I understand that every woman is different and unique, and my makeup reflects that -- some revel in natural beauty while others love to bring on the drama! MY BRIDES: From our initial one-on-one consultation and trial run, bridal portrait makeup, pre-wedding events makeup, all the way to the wedding-day application, the end result will be flawless, suiting your style, dress and the overall feel of your event. It's always the bride’s vision, combined with an expert's guidance that lends to wedding beauty perfection. Two bits of advice that I share with all of my brides are: pamper yourself and splurge on your special day by working with a makeup professional who specializes in customizing a look that specifically cateres to your desired style. The second bit of advice is that whether you're going for a minimal clean look, a modern-day classic finish, or an enhanced dramatic look, makeup should render timelessness and elegance. It's important to know that for years to come, you'll want to look back at your wedding photos feeling confident in your beauty choices for that special day. I'm committed to working with only one bride and her bridal party on any given day, therefore there's absolutely no rush and you can rest assured knowing that all of my attention will solely be on you. MY EXPERIENCE: Twenty-two years of experience in the makeup industry has allowed me invaluable experience with countless personalities. I’ve gained an innate understanding for texture and color for a variety of skin tones and types, and how they wear color differently, as well as knowing which products to use to ensure that my makeup is long-wearing and photographs beautifully. I’ve been mentored by some of the most notable and powerful women in the cosmetic industry. I’ve also developed my own line of lip glosses, Misiu Beauty. My work has been featured internationally in print, on-air and online including the New York Times, Glamour Magazine, Southern Living, Coastal Bride, The Knot, Wedding Wire, Charleston Magazine, Charleston Weddings Magazine, Charleston Style and Design Magazine, Travel and Destination, Country Living Magazine, Skirt Magazine, The Post and Courier, The Wedding Row, and The Fashion Group International. **The 2013 Beauty Black Book for InStyle Magazine named me as one of six go-to artists in the entire country!** My celebrity glam-ups include Jennifer Lopez, Katie Couric, and some of the best-known magazine editors worldwide. Aside from doing event makeup, I entertain clients as a one-on-one beauty concierge/consultant. I meet with them when convenient and update their beauty routine, while simultaneously shopping for any current makeup needs.

Mission: Providing an attitude free zone where clients can come to me or I can come to them. I love teaching and demonstrating through showing them tips and techniques to update their looks and current needs. To share with others what I have learned along the way from amazing mentors. All with a different approach, to the sometimes overwhelming beauty arena. This allows the client to feel at ease, while they EXPERIENCE latest products in skincare and makeup, as well as indulge in having fun while receiving first class service. My mission is simple….. Service, Standards, and Style.

One of my favorite bronzer's for Fall from @guerlain what it is:
With the effect of a makeup bronzer and the ease of a gentle spray, Terracotta Spray is an entirely new way to get a temporary sunny glow. Employing the technology used in a professional airbrush makeup application, Terracotta Spray goes on in an ultra-light mist. The homogenous spray diffusion ensures a uniform application that covers every inch of the face evenly in just seconds.

What else you need to know:
Available in two shades, each can contains 130 applications and even has the added bonus of SPF 10 protection.

General information

I would consider myself fun, a perfectionist, I will only sell you and show you the products that you need and will actually use. And since I don't wear make, thank the Lord, I view each client differently and choose products and colors customized for them. Makeup should not be intimidating and nor should the artist. When I write, I write from the heart. So many things in the world are serious, I believe in living in the now but looking to the future. If I write it, I feel it!
