"Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success."Kevyn Aucoin on Swami Vivekananda
"Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it."Kevyn Aucoin on Bruce Lee
"A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him."Kevyn Aucoin on David Brinkley

"Beauty has a lot to do with character."
"Beauty is about perception, not about make-up. I think the beginning of all beauty is knowing and liking oneself. You can't put on make-up, or dress yourself, or do you hair with any sort of fun or joy if you're doing it from a position of correction."
"That's why I began doing makeup in the first place: I was hoping that through helping people see the beauty in themselves, I could try and find it in me."
"Today I see beauty everywhere I go, in every face I see, in every single soul."
