Larger Than Life: The Kevyn Aucoin Story

The art of make-up has a strong history, but it was revolutionized in the 80’s and 90’s by a man who would become an icon. From his roots in the small town of Lafayette, Louisiana, to his highly successful career in New York City doing make-up for supermodels and big magazines like “Vogue” and “Cosmopolitan”, Kevyn Aucoin became a legend and one of the individuals fighting at the forefront for the LGBTQ+ rights. Follow his legacy and find that not even an untimely death could stop the revolution he began.
