Five for Friday w/the EVIE EVAN team

Ivonne Ruggles (left) and Michelle Perez are the owners of the flagship Evie Evan store located at 504 Congress Avenue. We caught up with the ladies to get tips on looking great at Austin events, learn more about Evie Evan, and talk about tonight’s store grand opening event.

Your location puts you in good proximity to many Austin events. Will the store be available for pre-event styling?

Definitely! The store is open until 6:30pm, perfect for freshening up your look between work and events. For larger parties, the store can stay open late – all you need to do is give us a call to schedule in advance.

What about Evie Evan products sets you apart from other brands?

We look at our products in terms of life stages. Unlike some lines that you grow in and out of, our line grows with you. Whether that be the needs of a 20-something beginning their career, a new mom, or someone who is just affected by day-to-day stress, we have products that can address any individual’s specific needs.

With the change of the season from summer to fall, what are some quick tips to look great and prepare our skin?

The change of the season is a great time to stop and see where your skin is at. Some people will begin to need more moisture in the fall. One way to slowly bring that transition into your regimen is a light, moisturizing toner. It is also a great time to treat yourself and your skin with a mask. The Evie Evan Fairy Godmother Kit is a great way to firm skin and get ready for winter.

You have your Evie Evan store launch tonight. What do you have planned for this evening?

Tonight’s event is our official launch and goes from 1:30 – 6:30 pm today. The entire store will have a festive feel with decor and cupcakes for customers. Our staff of experts will be on-hand for skin and make-up consultations, there will be beauty bundles for sale, and discounts on products throughout the store.

And one for fun:
With Halloween a week away, what fun looks are you loving?

Halloween is a time to pull out the black eyeliner, glitter eyeshadow and colors you feel you can’t normally wear.
Ivonne:  I love a Cleopatra look with green eyeshadow and big, cat-eyed liner.
Michelle:  We have a new plum lipstick for fall called “undercover.” It is a great addition to a vampire/Twilight look.

Evie Evan Flagship Store Grand Opening is today from 1:30 pm – 6:30 pm
504 Congress Avenue, Suite 100
Austin, Texas 78701

*Prior to the store opening, Evie Evan was an online store with the ownership based in Los Angeles. The move has brought the header-quarters to our great city. Join Austin Social Planner in welcoming Evie Evan to Austin!
