Overview

Kevyn Aucoin partners with the industry's greatest talents to create an exquisite, star-studded collection of portraits, and reveals some timeless beauty tips that helped earn him his super-status in the fashion industry.

It's a visual feast as supermodels and celebrities such as Susan Sarandon, Jessica Lange, Grace Jones, Christie Brinkley and Janet Jackson, to name a few, are exquisitely made up by Aucoin and photographed by the world's most famous photographers, including Richard Avedon, Patrick Demarchelier, Steven Meisel, Michael Thompson and Peter Lindbergh.

The Art of Makeup includes an introduction by Linda Wells, editor of Allure, and essays by Donna Karan, Cindy Crawford, Polly Mellen and Liza Minnelli that discuss Aucoin's talent, his incredible rise in his field and what he's like to work with. It also features tips to help women achieve the Aucoin look. Through step-by-step instructions, sample makeovers and an explanation of the 10 most common beauty mistakes and the four basic makeup combinations, Aucoin helps women accentuate their positive features, enhance their beauty and look and feel their best.

Elegant and instructional, this book is a celebration of beauty and a remarkable showcase of the talents of a man who has defined the look of the '90s.

Author Biography: Kevyn Aucoin came to New York in 1983 and less than a year later was booked with Steven Meisel for his first Vogue cover. He has more covers to his credit than any other makeup artist, and is the recipient of the first-ever CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) Award for makeup artistry. He lives in New York City.

    From Drab to Fab Diva!

    This awesome compliation of how-to's, tips and masterpiece make-overs of regular folks & celebrities is a must have for every woman. Kevyn simplified some of the most complex make-up challenges. I bought this book for myself when it first came out and have bought it for several friends and relatives since - sometimes just to avoid having them try to take mine. Kevyn was truly amazing and Hollywood as well as the everday woman will truly miss out on all of the beauty that he had left to offer.

    Truely an Art

    I think this is an outstanding display of how makeup can be used in a positive way, without making people look cakey or fake. Mr. Aucoin has a true talent for makeup. Kudos, Mr. Aucoin, keep on amazing people!
