Legendary makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin arrived in New York City from the small town of Lafayette, Louisiana after spending his childhood expressing himself through drawing, painting and makeup. In search of relief from confusion surrounding his identity and constant bullying, Kevyn found instant acceptance in the fashion world. Due to his groundbreaking contouring techniques, his infectious personality and a mission to make everyone feel beautiful, he shot to fame quickly, doing makeup for every supermodel and celebrity throughout the 80’s and 90’s. At the height of his fame, Kevyn died mysteriously in 2002.
“Larger than Life: The Kevyn Aucoin Story” explores every corner of Kevyn’s rich, beautiful and complicated life. Featuring Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell, Isabella Rossellini and Tori Amos.
Talkback and reception with director Tiffany Bartok and producers Jaybe Bartok and Troy Surratt to follow.Buy tickets/get more info now
