Heart Evangelistais, of course,beautiful. This is precisely why Previewmagazine chose her tograce the cover of its Beauty Specialthis November. Preview describesher beauty as an "Oriental brand of elfin," characterized by chinitaeyes and a flawless skin that elicit raves from no less than Bobbi Brown's regional director for artistry Sebastian Tardif, who does her makeup forthe cover shoot.
"My main inspiration for her look today is her skin, it isjust so flawless," Sebastian says. "She has nice open eyes and a generous lashline aswell. Three coats of mascara and all of a sudden... boom!"
It almost seemsunbelievable that she maintains such a simple beauty regimen. Heart tells Preview,"I just cleanse and moisturize around my eyes before going to bed."
But what makes Heart more beautiful nowadays is the candor with which she presents herself to the public. She arrivesat the Preview cover shoot armed with a diary of answers to all of Preview'squestions. "I really wanted to answer your questions well, to think aboutthem," she tells the Preview team earnestly.
True enough, asthe Preview team leafs through pages and pages of exclamation points,underlined and capitalized phrases all in Heart's own handwriting, it is clearjust how much thought she has given to every question.
Preview lifts from that diary, which Hearthas made out of the magazine's questions, to give readers a picture of just how emotional she really is. As she writes about the lowest point in her life and peppersit with much emphasis, it gives an idea of how wrung her feelings were during one period of her life.
She writes, "All of a sudden everything in my life changed. Mycareer was just about DEAD, and my personal life was a DISASTER. I would wallowin self-pity. I lost my family. I lost my love and passion for life. I thoughtit was the end of the world."
Showbiz also reared its uglyhead as Heart faced scrupulous scrutiny from the public that once adored her. "Itoyed with the idea of leaving before it destroyed me," she says, "but Irefused to leave the industry that way."
With her career back in full swing,it looks like Heart is not leaving just yet. "It's really what I love. Thepassion is really there," she says, "I'm just not over it yet, I feel it, thatthere's so much more to give."
