Synopsis:
Kevyn Aucoin led the kind of glamorous life that can only be imagined. He tended to the faces of every A-list star and did the makeup for countless music videos, magazine shoots and fashion shows. However, few would have predicted his incredible rise given the heartwrenching difficulties of his childhood. But at a young age, he discovered his talent for applying makeup and dreamed of leaving his small Southern town to make it in the fashion world of New York. He did just that and within eight months he was working for Vogue magazine. During his amazing career, Kevyn kept detailed diaries of every assignment he received and filled each entry with polaroids, names and places. A BEAUTIFUL LIFE showcases the most exciting of these pages and brings the behind-the-scenes world of fashion, celebrity and music to life for the reader. And of course it contains a 'greatest hits' of Kevyn's favourite celebrity makeup tips, some revealed for the first time ever. Kevyn was so beloved by his fans and his famous friends because of the message behind his makeup: self-respect and tolerance. For Kevyn, leading A BEAUTIFUL LIFE was first and foremost about inner beauty and this book builds on that legacy.
