This Top Five comes from Kevyn Aucoin, the eponymous brand founded by the world-renowned makeup artist in 2001. Today, Kevyn Aucoin Beauty is a visionary collection of cosmetics and tools that reflect artistic expertise and philosophies, which is deeply rooted in values of empowerment, originality, and inclusivity.
Foundation Balm (£42)
The newest product in the collection, this multi-action balm formula blends effortlessly into the skin while diffusing the appearance of any imperfections, leaving skin looking visibly smoother, more even-toned for a virtually bare, brave and beautiful canvas. A full coverage, buildable foundation for all skin types available in 20 shades.
The innovative balm texture contains skin-pampering antioxidants that enhance the look of natural skin and protect against environmental aggressors, while providing comfort and a long-wearing formula.
The Foundation Balm formula delivers a silky flawless finish for younger-looking skin. Fortified with Hyaluronic Acid with bonus antioxidants, such as Vitamin E, and infused with Avocado Oil, Phytosterols, and Olive Fruit Oil, it enhances the skin barrier function and protects again inflammation and external damage. Where some full-coverage foundations can dry out the skin, the Foundation Balm hydrates for a supple look and feel. It comes with a specially designed brush for effortless blending and application.
The Sensual Skin Enhancer (£39)
A must-have Kevyn Aucoin cult classic. An original, created by THE Original. While on a trip to Japan, Kevyn Aucoin was intrigued and inspired by the radiant, flawless skin of the geisha. His curiosity to learn more about their beauty secrets, led him on a quest to find those products used to achieve this signature, youthful dewy complexion. Kevyn went on to collaborate and successfully create, with chemists from Japan, what is still the most iconic, versatile, skin-perfecting makeup product in the beauty world today.
This versatile, waterproof face perfector covers, conceals and corrects, and is available in 16 universal shades. It hydrates and mimics the appearance of healthy, radiant skin with its ability to provide medium-to-complete coverage.
Formulated with jojoba oil, honey, and minerals in order to hydrate and create the ultimate soft, dewy complexion. Transfer resistant. Long wearing. Sweat Proof. Perfect for all skin types.
Glass Glow (£26)
This universal lightweight gel-oil illuminator creates youthful looking, well hydrated skin with a glassy complexion. Available in three shades, this multi-purpose luminiser can be used on the face and body leaving skin appearing clear, radiant and seemingly transparent. The lightweight formula absorbs quickly for a smooth, even application.
The formula includes Passion Fruit Oil and Marula Oil both rich in omega fatty acids to improve skin hydration and packed with anti-inflammatory properties.
Glass Glow can be applied directly to the skin or blended with primer or foundation to transform into an illuminating elixir. It can also be used all over the body for a radiant glow.
The Volume Mascara (£23)
This mascara amplifies lashes for a stand out look. The groundbreaking formula is infused with bold pigments and volume-building fibres to thicken, separate, and dramatically lengthen lashes. Tubed technology prevents the lashes from clumping and holds the natural curl of the lash all day long. Jojoba oil ensures lashes are soft and shiny from root to tip. Smudge-resistant and long-wearing, the unique skinny-styled brush makes application effortless and coats each and every lash.
Eyelash Curler (£17)
This slim, professional quality eyelash curler helps create wonderfully curled lashes. The easy-to-use, award-winning eyelash curler is designed to catch each individual eyelash—without pinching—for the perfect eye-opening look. The wide opening of the curler is designed to accommodate all eye shapes. It features a red silicone cushion pad that contrasts with eyelashes and the lash line for precision and ease of use. The curler can also be used upside down to curl bottom lashes for a Hollywood siren look.
Kevyn Aucoin is available from SpaceNK and Harrods.
