James Vincent

Meet celebrity makeup artist and educator, James Vincent.

As Director of Education and Artistry for The Makeup Show and The Powder Group, James Vincent is fortunate enough to work with makeup lines and makeup artists at all levels of the industry. Over the years, James’ passion for the art of makeup encompasses nearly every genre of makeup artistry, from film and theater, to television and celebrity work, editorial and runway work.

When James moved to New York, he assisted many artists he considers mentors, including our brand founder Kevyn.

James is currently the Beauty Editor for On Makeup Magazine and Galore Magazine. He contributes to countless blogs and publications including Refinery 29. He has been featured on numerous television shows as a beauty expert such as NBC’s The Today Show, CBS This Morning and NY1.

The Makeup Show is a way for me to help artists figure out who they are through inspiration, education, and access. We help provide community and support.

When Kevyn started there were 8 working makeup artists in NY, and if you wanted to learn the craft, assisting a mentor was the only way. I hope that, through The Makeup Show, we are able help artists connect with mentors & answer questions.

James' Favorite Kevyn Product

Sensual Skin Enhancer
"I love it not only because it is the most iconic Kevyn product, also because it’s a product that people misunderstand. It's an educational opportunity. A chance for me to pass down the techniques I learned from Kevyn."

PRO TIP: “Everyone needs to have shade 9! If you don’t have it, you don’t have a complete kit”
