"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it."Kevyn Aucoin on Confucius
"To love beauty is to see light."Kevyn Aucoin on Victor Hugo
"Beauty is only skin deep. If you go after someone just because she's beautiful but don't have anything to talk about, it's going to get boring fast. You want to look beyond the surface and see if you can have fun or if you have anything in common with this person."Kevyn Aucoin on Amanda Peet
"A woman whose smile is open and whose expression is glad has a kind of beauty no matter what she wears."Kevyn Aucoin on Anne Roiphe
"People are like stained - glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within."Kevyn Aucoin on Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

"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."
