Happy Birthday Kevyn Aucoin!

14 Feb

 Ridiculously talented Makeup magician=Kevyn Aucoin.

 Kevyn Aucoin is a legend in the makeup and photography world, he has worked with hundreds of A-list stars and countless models,  he authored three of my favorite makeup books and had HUGE makeup company endorsements.  Aucoin was the first EVER recipient of the CFDA(Council of Fashion Designers of America) award for makeup artistry. Would you expect anything less from a guy who moved to NY to pursue his dream and less than a year later was booked with Steven Meisel for his first Vogue cover?  Soon becoming one of the most sought after makeup artists in the world, Aucoin was at the top of his game when he passed away in 2002, today he would have celebrated his 50th Birthday.

Aucoin was named one of the top 7 makeup artists by ifashion network, a global online fashion portal.  I name him the best makeup artist that ever lived.

Check out any you tube video footage that you can find and his best-selling books. *Making Faces   *  Face forward   *The art Of  Makeup 

So many timeless tips for all faces:)
