"Kevyn was a genius makeup artist — his talent for transforming his subjects into iconic characters and people was amazing, but you could always recognize the woman herself underneath. He made makeup artists become stars — much like what Joel Robouchon did for cuisine, Kevyn did for our craft. I never had the opportunity to work directly with him, but I did know him and we were friends. He was such a wonderful and fun person to be around."
— Tom Pecheux, Estée Lauder creative makeup director
