“This broadcast was truly inspiring! Kevyn Aucoin is definitely the first makeup artist I ever knew by name. His work is beyond incredible and so was his life story that Donna so generously shared. Kevyn was a blessing to our industry and to every person that encountered him. I did not realize how he really paved the road for future makeup artists. Donna's teachings always surpass my expectations! She too is such a blessing to all of us. Her knowledge is more than spot on. I have never seen another artist teach with her passion. Donna wants to train her students to be the best artists in the world. Aaron Paul is definitely a good example of one of her most talented graduates! His skills are impeccable! His personality is magnetic. Everyone loves him, just like Kevyn:) I highly recommend Donna's classes and broadcasts to everyone. Knowing her has changed my career and my life and I am forever grateful! XOXO”

-Vanessa Lee

“This tribute was truly heartfelt and beautiful, so much so it brought tears to my eyes. Kevyn is definitely a massive inspiration to me, as he is undoubtedly, to thousands of other artists as well. His work continues to mesmerise with his books and for me, I continue to be blown away by his extraordinary talent & ability to turn celebrities into other celebrities in Face Forward in particular. He was a big game changer for the industry and a pioneer for artists to pave the way. It saddens me that his talent was lost so early. It always makes me wonder where he could have been today had he not sadly passed. One could only imagine the dominance he would have had in our industry. Sadly, the world will never know. Thank you Donna for putting on such a beautiful and enlightening tribute to a beautiful soul and I loved learning more about him that wasn't known. Aaron was also great to watch and hear his journey along the way as well. He is also an inspiration to myself and many more. A wonderful way to spend time learning about the Man, the artist, the icon that is Kevyn Aucoin.”
