In 1983, makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin took a Greyhound bus from his hometown of Lafayette, Louisiana, to New York City with his portfolio under his arm, and no formal work or credits on his resume. After a chance meeting at Vogue, Kevyn's fate in the industry was sealed; within months he was working for Steven Meisel on the set of high fashion shoots and backstage at couture shows.

By the end of a decade, Kevyn had become a makeup legend; painting and sculpting the faces of magazine cover models and celebrities including Cher, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Janet Jackson, revealing true timeless beauty in a way no one had before or since. Despite his untimely passing in 2002, Kevyn Aucoin's legacy lives on through his unrivaled, time-tested techniques, his New York Times best-selling books The Art of Makeup, Making Faces, and Face Forward, and the Kevyn Aucoin Beauty brand he founded and launched in 2001. Through his life's work, Kevyn Aucoin set the standard for makeup artistry, recognized today as the makeup artist that continues to inspire the world of beauty.


“Glamour is not self-conscious; it’s not trying really hard. It’s just expressing your own truth. I think that’s what the essence of glamour really is—expressing your uniqueness.”
