Will you go there?

How do you think some of these people compare to someone like Kevyn Aucoin?

I wish I was going! I went to the one in Canada and it was fantastic!

Kevyn Aucoin is one of a kind and he was the reason I wanted to be a makeup artist. He was just a magical person and I wish I could have met him. The makeup artists being featured at the show are some of the top in the business and tres talented. Every artist is different and brings something unique to the industry.
