He famously created the revolutionary make-up technique of contouring and now Space NK are launching a new exhibition in their Knightsbridge store honouring the late make-up artist, Kevyn Aucoin.
With a host of celebrity clients including Gwyneth Paltrow, Janet Jackson and Cindy Crawford, Kevin was the the make-up artist of choice during the nineties. Unfortunately, Kevyn died of an overdose in the 2002, but has reigned supreme through his work ever since, as make-up artists worldwide use his infamous contouring technique, hailed by celebrities everywhere.
The new exhibition, Kevyn Aucoin: The Legacy of a Makeup Icon, will show a series of photographs of Kevyn at work and play with his clients and the editorial results of his handiwork. Personal artefacts, sketches and a short film will also be on show, contributed by his friends and family.
