Space NK very kindly invited me down to the launch of legendary American make up artist Kevyn Aucoin. Not only was Kevyn renowned as a make up artist he was alas a published author, photographer and is known as the creator of Kim Kardashian’s favourite technique…contouring.
Gathering some of his most insightful sketches, portraits, photographs and even old make up props that were used in his show, the Space NK event space in the basement of the Knightsbridge store was a hot house of pure make-up genius.
Famous face from past and present adorned the walls, (the bare faced Whitney Houston being a fave) as well as a shrine to the worlds leading ladies, hidden behind a red velvet curtain letting you absorb all the beauty in a private worship like space.
It was a gorgeous event with the likes of Pam Hogg and numerous established make up artist who I spent most of the night grilling for tips!
