“Like any person living with a physical anomaly that requires correction, Eveline, too, had a physical challenge - she was born into the wrong body. Transgendered people are probably the most misunderstood on this planet. How can any of us know how it feels to be living inside a shell, not of our own making, that we are desperate to break free of? They say ‘don’t judge another person until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes.’ Let me tell you, I couldn’t walk a block in Eveline’s stilettos. Don’t get me wrong, I love her dearly, but I don’t think I could handle the hurt and pain she has had to endure - herself, and so many others faced with the same issues.”

THE TIP-OFF: KEVYN AUCOIN’S TIMELESS BEAUTY ADVICE

Seven quotes from the legendary makeup artist.

If you know your beauty history, then you know Kevyn Aucoin. The famed makeup artist was not only loved by celebrities, models, and editors for his incredible talent, but he was also kind enough to share his knowledge with the masses through his beauty books—including his now-iconic contouring tutorial. Enter: The Contour Book, The Art of Sculpting + Defining. New from his namesake makeup line, this set gives you the product and the how-to in one kit. In celebration of its launch, we’ve collected some of Aucoin’s best bits of beauty wisdom. KELLEY HOFFMAN

ON CONTOURING
“Light colors highlight and make things come forward. Dark colors shade and make areas recede.”

ON EYES
“The key is for people to notice your eyes, not the eye makeup.”

ON EYEBROWS
“The eyebrows are the most important feature of the face…all emotion states are conveyed by the eyebrows.”

ON INSPIRATION
“Today I see beauty everywhere I go, in every face I see, in every single soul, and sometimes even in myself.”

ON EXPERIMENTATION
“If you want to look your best, be creative, try some new ideas, and have fun doing it.”

ON GLAMOUR
“Glamour is not self-conscious; it’s not trying really hard. It’s just expressing your own truth. I think that’s what the essence of glamour really is—expressing your uniqueness.”

ON HAPPINESS
“Beauty might bring happiness, but happiness brings beauty.”
