If you haven’t heard, Kevyn Aucoin’s beautiful products just launched on our site. It’s a pretty big deal, and to say we’re excited is an understatement. If you know anything about the iconic makeup artist’s cult line, you know that Fashion Month was his forte. Which is why this is the perfect time to introduce the brand to our site and talk about how we can incorporate their classic, fashion-forward looks into our modern day routines.

Kevyn Aucoin moved to New York City in 1982 to pursue his career in the beauty industry. It wasn’t long before his talent captured the attention of Vogue, and landed him Cindy Crawford’s first cover. From there, he took the supermodel era by storm and was a well-known name behind every relevant runway show. Aucoin worked with countless fashion, film and beauty icons, and ended up publishing a number of books on his art.

Even after Aucoin passed away in 2002, his established brand continues to hold the same status and quality as it did when he was Courtney Love’s go-to. Today, Kevyn Aucoin holds an impressive collection of bold colors, intricate palettes, and the smoothest lipstick you’ll ever put on.

We’re going to take a look back at some of the brand's most fashionable moments, and pair them up with current products available on our site now.
