There are so many make up products that have sprouted in the past few years that catching up has been as hard as tracking new trending stories on Facebook. But a classic cult brand like Kevyn Aucoin is going to take you to places. I remember owning his book way way back in 2005 , unable to afford his make up let alone pronounce his name correctly ( A-kwayn?!!). Anyhow, he inspired me heaps about make up as a platform to transformation and this was way way back prior youtube vloggers and the Kardashian dynasty . I've always dreamed of getting a nose job but holy dooley! this guy can make a nose look like a million bucks. Page after page , he discusses and demonstrates how contouring is done in the Aucoin way. Since then on, I became obsessed with it. To hell if I'm just going to go in the grocery to buy milk and eggs, i shall contour my nose first! And my classmates, teachers, friends, frenemies, strangers, bad strangers , feeling close strangers, pervs would ask me if my nose was "done" under the knife. And back then I could only use a brown eyeliner and smudge it on the sides of my nose . Ugh kids these days and their Morphe contour kits haha. Back in our time ( god i feel old) they'd ask for watercolour palettes but ask a kid now what they want for christmas and they'd be saying Anastasia's name without batting an eyelash. So Kevyn Aucoin lives in me and he comes in this cute tiny compact. I just wish he still lives now and he'd be slaying all those make up kids and be teaching them the right way. Oh well, I can say that I'm the old school type of kid. I do watch youtube tutorials for like 20 min and that's it. I still love reading make up books but. Anyhow, I I cannot wait to show you how lush and gorgeous they are on my next post!
It's a brand new day. Brand new perspective. I am thrilled about what I've been seeing in the menswear right now. the softening of the look, the conjuring the 1970's romantic , the music era and that fab glam overload. Studs was 2010 while Silk is the now. Not being a fashion Hitler here but that's merely my observation. Deadly delicate is the key term. It suits me well at this point of my life. No loud music ( except Beyonce if that's considered loud) , no club dancing anymore (ugh, I'm sorry but ). Only softness, refinement , lazy eyed guys in skinny tops and mammoth pants with floral something and a silk wrapped around their necks. I tried it and i love it. Wait til' I lose 10 lbs more and I'll be some guy in that magazine editorial wearing Alessandro Michele's Gucci and there's no stopping me haha. For now, this.
