Kevyn Aucoin Beauty Glams Up 2023!

Posted by Maryanne Salvat On January - 5 - 2023

With the resurgence of the 90’s, one trend that has reemerged has been the ‘Glazed Brownie Lip’ – similar to other current trends, this is a revival of something that has already existed in many communities. To Kevyn Aucoin’s Global Director of Artistry & Education, Nick Lujan, it reminds him of time spent as a budding makeup artist in the 90’s studying how friends, family and celebrities wore their makeup.

Late makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin created lip liners in a variety of shades to add dimension to client lips, that quickly became a go-to lip that could be paired with any eye look – being seen on Janet Jackson, Mary J. Blige, Naomi Campbell, and many more.

“The ‘Glazed Brownie Lip’ is flattering on all skin tones. It’s as simple as pairing a lip liner one to two shades darker than your natural lip color with a clear or sheer color lip gloss. The key is to not over-blend the lip liner, keeping it more visible.”

To create the look today, Nick recommends pairing the Kevyn Aucoin Beauty’s Unforgettable Lip Definer, available in 6 nude/natural shades, with the brand’s Glass Glow Lip in Prism Rose. Looking for something less glossy? Nick loves using Unforgettable Lipstick in Suspicious to achieve the same look.

To compliment the newest lip color, Kevyn Aucoin has created 4 new palettes that will allow you to contour, highlight and create multi-dimensional eye looks for all skin tones, Contour Eyeshadow Palette.

Because the palettes are magnetic, you can rearrange and customize your palette making it perfect to mix and match. Nick Lujan, Global Director of Artistry & Education for Kevyn Aucoin, loves using shades found in the Medium and Deep palettes for a simple eyebrow color or as a liner by using a lightly damp brush – we’ve included some inspo from Nick for each palette below!

“For a seamless application, I would recommend loading your brush up with product for the best application – just pack your brush with product and work the bristles on the back of your hand for less cleanup. Say ‘bye’ to fallout!”
