Kevyn Aucoin: Famous Celebrities of Yesteryear

In Makeup Artists on February 23, 2010 by facesbyangie

Beauty is about perception, not about make-up. I think the beginning of all beauty is knowing and liking oneself. You can’t put on make-up, or dress yourself, or do you hair with any sort of fun or joy if you’re doing it from a position of correction.

Kevyn Aucoin, a renown celebrity makeup artist, is famous for his work in transforming todays celebrities into the iconic faces of the past.  He was truly an artist in my book. My favorite is the Twiggy transformation.  Hmm…wonder who I’d request to look like for a day?

Gwyneth Paltrow as Faye Dunaway

Calista Flockhart as Audrey Hepburn

Hillary Swank as Raquel Welch

Julianne Moore as Twiggy!!

Liza Minelli as Marilyn Monroe

Winona Ryder as Elizabeth Taylor...pretty impressive.

Martha Stewart as Veronica Lake, WHOA.

Last but certainly not least, Gwenyth Paltrow once again, this time as JAMES DEAN!

ooh one more, Christy Turlington as Marisa it.
