was a man ahead of his time. The self-made makeup artist turned industry icon painted and sculpted some of the day's most famous and beautiful faces in his short, yet prolific career. Though he worked with celebrities and royalty, he is an inspiration, most profoundly, to all women, revealing true timeless beauty in a way no one has before or since. His talent went beyond the technical, able to highlight and transform not only a woman's assets, but reveal something deeper within her soul.
Despite his untimely passing in 2002, Kevyn Aucoin's vision lives on through his unrivaled, time-tested techniques, his New York Times best-selling books The Art of Makeup, Making Faces, and Face Forward, and the Kevyn Aucoin Beauty brand he founded and launched in 2001. Kevyn's most important legacy is the passion he left us with, imparting the wisdom that while true beauty is more than skin deep, it is through the transformative power of makeup that we can discover something deeper about our true selves. Kevyn Aucoin Beauty celebrates uncovering the beauty of the soul, which continues to thrive in our ever-expanding line of iconic products designed to bring out the beauty in you.

First, I am honored that I was invited to this event. Kevyn Aucoin Changing Faces was the first book I along with everyone else purchased when I discovered my love for makeup. The presentation was very intimate but packed full of important information...
So lets get into what we discussed starting with the Bloodroses line. The Expert Lip Color is a very popular shade and is sold out at most locations. The deep wine color is perfect for fall and is very moisturizing. This fall 5 new lipstick shades will be added to the Bloodroses Collection...
There is also a mascara, matte lipstick, lip gloss, lip liner and palette in the Bloodrose line...

Now, lets move on to the New Foundation that will launch at the end of October 2016. The Etherealist Skin Illuminating Foundation will be available in 16 shades. The Etherealist Skin Illuminating Foundation blends effortlessly for shine-free, comfortable wear while hyaluronic acid boosts hydration. It features light diffusing particles and high definition pigments work together in a silky smooth formula to deliver medium coverage with a semi-satin finish.This foundation is infused with Pearl Powder and leaves a nude, dewey look to the skin.
Next up, Sensual Skin Powder Foundation that will be available in 12 shades.
The Sensual Skin Powder Foundation achieves the versatility of desired coverage and makes the skin appear youthful and fresh. Enriched with topaz and quartz minerals to reflect light, this foundation creates an ultrasoft, radiant finish.
I'm impressed with the fact that the powder can be used wet or dry. This powder is oil free and leaves a velvet finish.
Before I start with the Holiday 2016 line, just thought that I would let you guys know that Kevyn Aucoin is sold at Neiman Marcus, Barney's, and Sephora. There are a few other authorized dealers like Camera Ready Cosmetics that carries the brand also. Unfortunately, I can't show you the line yet but it is their biggest launch yet. The line will include an Expert Lip Kit, Loose Shimmer Set, and an Exclusive bag...
