The Makeup Show NY celebrates makeup legend Kevyn Aucoin with Icon Gallery

See also

In the world of makeup artistry few individual artists have risen to become household names.

Most of those who do are cosmetic moguls, carving their places into history by way of product lines that become mainstays on every woman's vanity. Perhaps Kevyn Aucoin would have joined the ranks of Bobbi Brown and Trish McEvoy, become a little more well known all around, had he lived a little longer.

Though short, his life was by no means tragic. Aucoin not only touched the lives of the stars whose faces he painted, he left a legacy that opened doors and paved a path for makeup artistry as a viable career beyond suburban mall counters.

His classic makeup line and books, though they are well into their second decade now, are still a fountain of inspiration for both aspiring and seasoned artists alike.

The Makeup Show NY is turning the spotlight on Aucoin and how he influenced the lives of the entire beauty community with the very first TMS Icon Gallery.

Premiering at a gala to benefit Charity:Water on May 2nd, and on view through The Makeup Show hours on May 4th and 5th, attendees will be able to view a collection of personal effects, archive items from Kevyn Aucoin beauty, and keepsakes on loan from Aucoin's closest friends and family.
