If you haven't tried Kevyn Aucoin before, let us introduce you to some of the team's favourite products and how to use them like a pro...
The Kevyn Aucoin Complexion Products
Kevyn Aucoin has a selection of foundations that are customisable and buildable so you can take the coverage from medium through to full.
If you want a foundation that feels light as air on the skin, boosts luminosity and evens out your skin tone, then this is a perfect choice. Applied with fingers, a brush or sponge you can build this up in light layers to increase the coverage.
If you love a matte finish, then the Foundation Balm will be ideal for you. Again, this is buildable from medium to full coverage but it feels totally weightless. The flat-topped brush that comes with it is incredible for buffing in the product for a blurred, flawless finish.
This nifty little pot of concentrated product is pigment-rich and incredibly versatile. You can use it neat as a high-coverage concealer or you can mix it with The Sensual Skin Primer, €55, and blend it all over your face as you would a foundation. A little goes a very long way.
Packed with ultra-fine pearl particles, this liquid highlighter creates that enviable lit-from-within glow. It can be layered under or mixed with any of the foundations or blended on top as you would a regular liquid highlighter. Apply this and wait for the compliments to roll in...
The Kevyn Aucoin Colour Products
To complement the foundations, Kevyn Aucoin has a selection of colour products that are beautifully chic and totally wearable.
This nourishing lipstick cloaks lips in a matte, but not flat, hit of richly pigmented colour. Long-lasting and comfortable to wear, it comes in 6 seriously beautiful and wearable shades.
With three glorious shades in one compact palette, the matte, satin and pearl finishes, can be swirled together to illuminate your cheeks. Or, use each shade separately as a blush and highlighter.
With the perfect blend of brown, red and grey pigments this sculpting powder perfectly mimics the look of natural shadow on the face to create a totally believable contoured effect. The sheer powder can be blended on to the skin seamlessly and thanks to its waterproof formula it lasts.
Packed with pigment and with a velvety smooth texture and sheeny finish, this eyeshadow duo will become your easy, everyday go-to. Lean on the lighter shade in the day, then ramp up your look with the darker brown shadow come nighttime either by creating a full-on smoky effect or using the darker shade for a cut crease.
