I didn’t have anyone around to teach me how to put on make-up when I was growing up, so what did I do??? I discoverd Kevyn Aucoin, fell in love with his work, and collected all his books! My cousin Kimmy and I would try to follow his methods and used his books as our Make-Up Bible.

If you truly appreciate the arts, you would know that make-up is an art in itself. Make-up is the medium and your face is your canvas. “It’s not meant to camouflage your face, but to enhance the beauty that is already there.”

He will always be one of our favorite make-up artists of all time ❤

oh yea, and i LOVE make up. proud to say, i taught myself on how to apply it according to my own standards of my own beauty. i’m always claiming i’m wearing a mask, a painted face. a “fake” face. hey! but its my very own creation rite?! you are so rite on point with all the little things in life. i love to agree with you!
