Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy happiness negativity pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life not to deny my humanity but embrace it.

Life is too short to spend hoping that the perfectly arched eyebrow or hottest new lip shade will mask an ugly heart.

Growing up my ideals were Barbra Streisand Cher and my mom.

Kevyn Aucoin Mom Quote

Another thing that’s pathetic is this rule that you have to look ugly to get respect as an actress. Jessica Lange had to make herself look really bad to prove that she had amazing talent.

Kevyn Aucoin Amazing Quote

Beauty has a lot to do with character.

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.

Soon I realized that if beauty equalled forgiveness I was never going to be forgiven.

That’s why I began doing makeup in the first place: I was hoping that through helping people see the beauty in themselves I could try and find it in me.

Today I see beauty everywhere I go in every face I see in every single soul.
