Holiday Must-Haves from Kevyn Aucoin


Last night I attended a fabulous Retrospective Gallery Showcase of Kevyn Aucoin’s career. From his artistry, drawings, signature quotes to the first products he launched and celebrity notes it was a beautiful presentation of his work and words.

“I’m not saying that putting on makeup will change the world or even your life, but it can be a first step in learning things about yourself you may never have discovered otherwise. At worst, you could make a big mess and have a good launch.” – Kevyn Aucoin


The event also served to showcase the fall and holiday collection. Some of the new products I’m absolutely dying over:

The Contour Book Volume II The Art of Sculpting + Defining ($65, $225 value) – The perfect follow-up to Volume I. If you happened to own the original you know the formulas were perfect but the circular shapes of the compact made application a bit challenging. Volume II is the solution to all. A Sculpting Cream, Sculpting Powder, Candlelight Cream, Candelight Powder to perfectly sculpt and highlight and four eye shadow shades, two matte and two shimmer to shape, define and sculpt eyes. The most convenient contour kit in travel size.
