“Makeup may not change the world or even your life, but it can be a first step in learning things about yourself you may have never discovered otherwise.” –Kevin Aucoin
If you follow beauty or fashion in any way Kevyn Aucoin really needs no introduction. From his work with Vogue photographer Steven Meisel, to his outspoken column in Allure, to his refusal to work with models he felt were too young Aucoin made a name for himself not just as a celebrity makeup artist but also as an extraordinary human being. He was a huge proponent of the idea that makeup was a tool to help a woman to discover herself and to feel beautiful in all ways.
Kevyn Aucoin would write three bestselling beauty books, “Making Faces,” “Face Forward,” and “The Art of Makeup,” that would go on to become beauty Bibles for everyone from professional makeup artists to the everyday woman.
His life and work have been such an inspiration for me. So you can imagine how excited I am to say that Katrina Hess Studios now carries a full selection of Kevyn Aucoin’s cosmetics. These are really professional grade tools that are so classic and so luxurious that they really fulfill Kevyn’s belief that every woman should have the chance to feel beautiful.
