Dedications page in Kevyn Aucoin’s Making Faces (1997). He thanks all the makeup greats - Pat McGrath, Way Bandy, Serge Lutens, Shu Uemura, Linda Mason, Mathu Andersen, Laura Mercier and François Nars. Even Tori Amos’ makeup artist (when Mr Aucoin was predisposed), Leslie Chilkes.
Neat how all the up-and-comers of the time whom he mentored (Billy B, Dick Page, Charlie Green) are in there too. Charlie has keyed Victoria’s Secret fashion shows, Dick took over Kevyn’s role in Allure Magazine, and you all know what Billy B is up to. Kevyn launched the careers of many.

Christy Turlington shot by Francesco Scavullo for the April 1990 issue of Cosmo. The hair and makeup are probably by Oribe and Kevyn, respectively, given that they collaborated with Scavullo on virtually all of these supersexy early 90s Cosmo covers.
