|Using Creamy Glow in Pravella on Carrie Keagan of VH1|
If you're a makeup artist or just always dreamed of being one, chances are you have one (or ALL!) of his genius makeup books... but do you have his beauty products? If the answer is no, you should take a field trip to your local Sephora or select department stores and change that. Seriously, I'm loving the Celestial Bronzing Veil in Tropical Days and Nights, The Creamy Glow in Pravella (but all colors are worth getting!) and of course the Sensual Concealer... yes, even foundation can be sexy!
Thank you Kevyn Aucoin for being an inspirational artist and for being brave enough to chase your dreams and pave the way for other artists in pursuit of their bliss. His legacy and exquisite work live on as his beauty brand continues to inspire and equip makeup mavens around the world.
Thank you to Kaci and Viviana at Kevyn Aucoin Beauty for such a generous gift! I am now a forever fan... the products are luxurious, great pigment & staying power... not to mention my favorite color is red, so I'm in love with the luxe packaging!

I just adore the soft, ultra feminine makeup and the messy bed head... but my fave just might be that fishtail at the end of the video... what do you think?
Monica Belucci, Sophie Marceau and Eva Herzigova are my heroines! Finally, women brave enough to grace the cover of an International Magazine such as French Elle... without a stitch of makeup on. (And an Editor-in-Chief whose finally daring enough to let them) Of course they still have the best photographers with all the right illuminating touches, but these women are baring their true beauty and look so comfortable doing so. No lip gloss, no mascara, no bronzer to create supermodel cheekbones or gorgeously smudged eyeliner to brighten their eyes- just a twinkle in their gaze and healthy, well taken care of skin. How refreshing it is to see authentic beauty and not just a computerized version of a celebrity. Thank you French Elle for showing us refreshingly natural yet feminine women, sometimes I feel the Fashion Industry has forgotten what that looks like.
May these Covers serve as a pep talk to all women... never hide behind your makeup- you were born beautiful and makeup should only enhance your natural loveliness. And that my dear, is the naked truth.
I was so inspired by these women, I set out to create my own 'Stars sans Fards' moment...
(sans fards is a French idiom that literally means “without rouge/makeup,” but implies “openness.”)
