Coming from the land down under is our latest fragrance addition, Mor Cosmetic's Marshmallow Eau de Parfum. This softly sweet perfume consists of Vanilla Musk, Jasmine Flower, sugar dipped rose petals and a base note of Cotton Candy. This is one of those scents that is very wearable for a daily fragrance and easily brings back memories of childhood and the sweet tooth we carry through into adulthood.
“Perfection is boring. If a face doesn’t have mistakes, it’s nothing.”
This refreshing, unexpected quote from Kevyn Aucoin represents the central struggle and triumph in this makeup innovator’s tragically short life.
Kevin Aucoin’s childhood and early adulthood were marked by rejection and violence. Yet rather than give in to self-pity, he survived incessant bullying, moved to New York and eventually became one of the most sought-after makeup artists of our time. Celebrities so respected his work that he earned as much as $10,000 for a single magazine shoot. He published several gorgeous best-selling guides on makeup, and his own line of cosmetics thrives past his death, in 2002, of painkillers he took to cope with a rare pituitary tumor. Yet this “rags-to-riches” life story is more than just one of wild success – it’s also about vision, passion and drive.
Makeup was always a central focus in Kevyn Aucoin’s life. As a child, he frequently did his sisters’ makeup and recorded the results with a Polaroid camera. (He continued this habit throughout his life; the inside covers of his best-selling book Making Faces features dozens of these Polaroids from throughout Aucoin’s career.) His childhood home of Lafayette, La., wasn’t very tolerant of Kevin Aucoin’s unusual preferences for gentle activities over more traditional male hobbies. At the age of six, Aucoin realized that he was gay, and the bullying began in earnest.
