Andrew was recently featured on The Charleston Fashion Group International for this month of May, talking about his career path and his launch of his Misiu Beauty cosmetics.
As an internationally trained and renowned cosmetic artist with Chanel, Christian Dior Beauty and Trish McEvoy, the passion for makup, beauty and people has always been Andrew Petersen’s driving force. Currently, Andrew represents a major player in the renowned world of beauty – The Cos Bar – and is collaborating with Dr Christy Cone on a new beauty formula. Misiu Beauty, a Polish term of endearment making reference to the one whom you hold close to your heart, will launch in Fall 2011.
Andrew’s experience level runs the gamut. He’s professionally well-heeled in all print, editorial, and event cosmetic artistry. He has been featured in the New York Times, Southern Living, Southern Bride, Domino Magazine, Charleston Weddings Magazine, Charleston Post & Courier and Skirt Magazine, to name a few. The main goal of this cosmetic guru is to enhance the beauty in individuals one brush stroke at a time. He maintains that his priorities are to ‘help others achieve their own personal and professional success’. As Petersen sees it, ‘beauty shines from within and makeup frames that’.
Petersen, a University of Nevada graduate, began his career in 1991 with Chanel cosmetics. His illustrious career has taken him from New York to Europe. He’s now made his home in the picturesque city of Charleston, South Carolina, where he serves his exclusive clientele.
His avid volunteer record includes work with the Ryan White Foundation, LowCountry AIDS Services, Charleston Center for Women, Charleston Fashion Week, South Carolina Association of Professionals and Advocates, as well as Leadership South Carolina. In 2009, he received statewide recognition in the form of the Unsung Hero commendation for his unparalleled work with HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention.
With the launch of Misiu and the new beginnings at Cos Bar, Petersen has gone full force into the wedding market of Charleston. Andrew’s makeup talents are available for your wedding day, where he will ensure you look and feel your absolute best.
