He wanted people to know his book wasn’t really about makeup, rather, about helping others find their true beauty within and reflecting on the outside their inner beauty and how transformative that can be.

That's exactly what you'll be able to do with the help of books authored by legendary makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin.He was a guest on many television programs, including Oprah, the Today show, Good Morning America, VH-I's Fashion Television, MTV's House of Style and Entertainment Tonight. However, it's good to be reminded of the theory behind make-up application and it will certainly be of good use as a reference for make-up looks of a certain decade. It is an ambiguous blend of different facial features from different races: the uptilted eyes of East Asians, the full lips of black women, golden tan skin of Latinx people, sharp cheekbones of Native Americans, long dark lashes of Middle Eastern women etc. I've kept it through several moves, including a period of my life where all my belongings were split between the three friend's houses I was couchsurfing on.

I got this book thinking I should wear more makeup so I won't be mistaken for an undergrad all the time, but it left me feeling like makeup is not necessary at all.Aucoin's gift was seeing the beauty in everyone and in bringing it out by being present and highlighting what's already there, and that is something which is simply not bound by time; it's just pure artistry. Bee-sting pucker, pin curls, false eyelashes and the exact right eye-liner, the night was magnificent. it contains what feels like a great number of fonts, one of which is the most difficult to read that ive ever encountered in a book before?

Beautiful photographs, clear instructions and drawings, with makeup styles which are still fashionable today, you can read in detail, or just flick through, it is absorbing. According to Kevin, he argues that makeup can make anyone any race they want, saying he can be Asian one moment and Spanish the next. Also, a BIG plus, is that Kevyn was not afraid to use women of all colors, black white, asian, whatever. Kevyn Aucoin's story of growing up, the stories of his siblings, and their role in the development of his talent is compelling and inspiring.

Seeing a book by Kevin Aucoin written in the early 2000s reinforces the fact more than ever: lines are blurring and boundaries in beauty are disappearing. Couch sheen is Fern's uncle/ Bailey's dad, he couched ambrose before the incident then couched him back to his old self after. I'm not saying he had to go nuts with special effects makeup, but a bit more diversity in coloring would have been nice.
