Jan 29, Sharon rated it bsautiful liked it Shelves: I was home from school, sick or probably pretending to be sick and this amazingly tall, smiley man was on the Oprah show, doing makeovers.
His name stuck in my head because it was so unusual – I wrote it down and kept coming across it for years after. When I saw his name on makeup products a few years ago, I remembered him, and wanted to find out what he had been doing.
Sadly, I discovered that he had passed away in This book, written after his tragically early death, contains stories and anecdotes from people who worked with akcoin and loved him. It has hundreds of beautiful pictures of Kevyn beautifhl all the actresses and models he made up. Everyone who worked with him loved him – some of the stories made me cry. This book also tells us about Kevyn’s early life, and his journey to find his birth parents.
It has a strong message – be yourself. I miss him and I didn’t even know him!
If you think you don’t know his work – think again. Gwyneth, pink dress, Oscars – Kevyn. Britney Spears first album cover – Kevyn. His makeup has been described as “bulletproof”, he had only one goal when doing makeup – not to transform, but to make you feel beautiful.
His message was “seeing the beautiful in everyone and everything”. It was Kevyn, too, who first introduced the notion of “naked” makeup in the early s with his work on Revlon’s Ultima II line, with the tagline “look like yourself, only better”. It was the first range of makeup created for all skintones, designed to enhance a woman’s natural beauty instead of covering it up. If you are, however, interested in makeup or cosmetics and want to read about one of the people who took it from a cover-up to an art form, then this is the book for you.
Jan 23, Phyllis rated it liked it Shelves: After I finished this tribute to the late, great legendary Kevyn Aucoin, I had a reaction like “that was sweet, but why the heck isn’t there an interview or an essay from his husband? I was so befuddled over this major insight in an otherwise very thorough tribute that I googled Jeremy Antunes, and was pretty horrified to discover that Aucoin’s family disowned him and basically cut off all contact with After I finished this tribute to the late, great legendary Kevyn Aucoin, I had a reaction like “that was sweet, but why the heck isn’t there an interview or an essay from his husband?
I was so befuddled over this major insight in an otherwise very thorough tribute that I googled Jeremy Antunes, and was pretty horrified to discover that Aucoin’s family disowned him and basically cut off all contact with him following Aucoin’s death.
Which is weird, because apparently they were totally supportive of their son’s homosexuality and not in one of those bogus situations where people are like “we love you and everything, but we still disapprove of your lifestyle and think you’re going to hell” deal some people have with their gay kids. I’m guessing the author had to pick a side, and the Aucoin family had all the contacts and archival photographs, so he was like “sorry Jeremy, later days.
Reading this book, I never realized how many iconic photographs from the 80s and 90s feature makeup art by Kevyn Aucoin. Oct 15, Gretchen rated it it was amazing. Who knew a make up book could make someone cry!
Nov 07, Lenette Graham rated it it was amazing Shelves: I have every single book he has ever published! He is such an inspiration for me! This is a book about his life, not one of his makeup manuals as I like to call them.
This book is filled with personal photographs and Kevin’s commercial work. He was a talent larger than life and I miss him!!
Kevyn Aucoin Book- A Beautiful Life
Aug 27, Lofe Siddle rated it liked it. This gives some interesting perspective into the career of a top makeup artist, but ljfe no secrets or revelations. It was published very shortly after Aucoin died, and contains nothing but lavish praise. That said, it’s nice to read about a highly successful person being celebrated for his kindness as well as his skill.
Oct 29, Martina rated it really liked it Recommends it for: I adore Kevyn Aucoin, I think he was an incredible artist. I wrote a paper on him for a class and this book is where I got a lot of material. Not surprisingly it can be quite sad, but also pretty inspiring. This is a really lovely review of Kevyn’s life, and work.
