The Kevyn Aucoin Base Products

Over the past year, my love for Kevyn Aucoin beauty has grown a huge amount. Whether it's his famous sculpting powder that gives cheek bones girls dream of or the incredible product range, I admire his work and the products he has created. Kevyn Aucoin takes up a massive chunk of my makeup collection and many of the products have become a part of my daily routine. Kevyn Aucoin created his products to bring out the true beauty in women and with that I can agree, each powder is so finely milled it simply sculpts and illuminates ones face, each cream is so buttery it melts on the face, creating makeup that looks like your skin, but better. 

From foundations to tinted moisturisers to highlights and blushes, the range within the brand is extensive. Kevyn offers a product for the modern women that brings out natural beauty whilst perfecting the skin. His base products are my favourites of his and having adored the Creamy Glow Duo #4, I wanted to extend my collection and pick up more of his cult products. 


The Sensual Skin Enhancer is one of Kevyn's most famous products. Renowned for it's multi tasking properties and containing ingredients such as honey and jojoba oil, this is a formula not to miss. Created to enhance the appearance of healthy, youthful looking skin that beams with radiance, this can be used as an all over foundation or simply a product to conceal where you need it. With a build-able coverage, you can really blend this out when mixed with an oil or moisturiser or you can apply it straight from the pot, for a more full coverage finish. Which ever way this is chosen to be used, your skin will appear naturally flawless. 


Designed to sculpt, enhance and define ones face, this cool toned powder is formulated with red and brown pigments to create the most natural looking shadow. Adding structure to your jawline, temple, nose and cheek bones is made easy with this extraordinary Sculpting Powder. The results with this are endless, simply apply a light dusting under the cheek bone to create something soft, subtle and easy. For a more dramatic, intense look then build up the colour, apply and blend until you have reached your desired look. 


Suitable for all skin tones and complexions, the Celestial Powder is a sophisticated, beautiful pigment that gives a soft champagne glow to the high points of the face. This non glitter highlight adds a powerful dusting of shimmer to the bridge of the nose, cupids bow, forehead, cheek bones or even the apples of your cheeks for an easy, lit from within glow. Applied generously, this Candlelight powder lights up the face and adds a touch of colour. 


For the healthy flushed cheeks you admire in the summer and wish for in the winter, reach for Kevyn's Creamy Glow. The gorgeous cheek colours are sheer and buttery, blend-able and build-able and are not at all greasy. For a sheer wash of colour that enhances your natural glow, these are idyllic and Tansoleil, is the perfect mid season pick me up with it's peachy, coral tones. For the complete look, apply to the apples of the cheeks and the lips or for a more day to day, wearable face, simply dab some colour onto the cheeks and watch it melt into the skin.  


Nothing makes beauty any simpler than this on the go, Creamy Duo. Packed in a slim, sleek case with a mirror inside, this is an on the go palette that will take you from easy cheeks in the day to sculpted, killer cheek bones at night. Think the sculpting powder and candlelight highlight in cream formula and put together as one. It's a thing of beauty. To enhance, the sculpting shade is essential and with a formula as silky as the blush, this blends into the skin beautifully. For an incredible shimmer fix, pat some highlight on the areas you wish to accentuate, the champagne hue is incredibly light weight and looks stunning on the tops of the cheek bones.


Not only is the Candlelight Celestial Powder available in cream form, it's now available in an elegant, skin changing liquid formula. This illuminating liquid can be worn as a simple highlight to dab on top of your base to highlight or a stand alone product to create the most beautiful, natural looking skin. The silky Liquid Lighting formula blends into the skin like magic and develops on the skin, allowing you to easily choose how much to apply. With hydrating properties, this is one of Kevyn's most luxe products and deserves a spot on any glow loving girls shelf.
