10 years ago today, the beauty world lost some of it's sparkle...
Kevyn Aucoin, the legendary make-up artist, who not only transformed the faces of celebrities, but everyday women as well, and seemed to find not only the best in people, but the hidden beauty waiting to shine in each person...
Kevyn was and will be greatly missed and I can't believe it's been 10 years.Kevyn's books were and will always be such a source of inspiration, with not just just his amazing skill, but with the amazing way he saw beauty in people that was beyond their outside appearance.
(His books are make-up artist staples: The Art of Make-Up, Making Faces and Face Forward)
Calista Flockheart into Audrey Hepburn...
I never met Kevyn Aucoin...but I wish I had. I've only heard from friends who have met him, how amazing he was. I would love to tell him what an inspiration he was, is and will continue to be.
The day he passed away it truly felt the world of make-up lost a pioneer, a leader, and a true inspiration. I am so glad that he wrote his books...they are a like love letters of inspiration and beauty that will continue to carry on his love, message, story...and will continue to inspire.
If you've never seen his books...you must. They have been beauty staples...and for many years, rested next to my nightstand.
KEVYN AUCOIN QUOTES I LOVE:
"Perfection is boring. If a face doesn't have mistakes, it's nothing."
