Smooth as Silk :: Kevyn Aucoin Beauty

Where can I begin with the attributes of Kevyn Aucoin Liquid Airbrush Foundation? Would it be the delicate texture, the subtle yet effective coverage or the next to nothing feeling on the skin? The best foundations are stellar in all three areas and while it would seem like a no brainer these days given the technology in cosmetics, you would be surprised by just how many fall short.

No so, with Kevyn Aucoin Beauty. This pigment rich, yet dewy finish foundation has buildable coverage which means you can use just the right amount, wherever you need it.

If your are like me and don’t really love the idea of wearing a full coverage makeup, yet you find that adding some color to blur and smooth out any imperfections is a must, then this may be the foundation for you. The product comes in a sleek pump bottle that allows the user to dispense a controlled amount of product at any given time. I use a very large pointed foundation brush when I put my makeup on — I am a bit of a speed freak when it comes to doing my own makeup and really haven’t the patience for a long drawn out makeup session, but I do want the fantastic finish, so a bullet-point brush is my go-to for foundation application. This makeup allows me to do a quick color wash to finish my skin and then go over the areas that need a little bit more coverage. It has a nice velvety finish— Not too dewy-shiny yet not powdery either. I think it makes the skin look polished, yet fresh all at the same time. Because the texture is buttery without looking oily, you need only a small amount of powder if any to set it.

For photo shoots, Kevyn Aucoin Liquid Airbrush Foundation really holds up well and think it would be great for anyone who needs a long wearing base that won’t look cakey or or dry after a long day. Think weddings or red carpet events.

Available in 8 shades, it’s $45.00 at Bloomingdales and Neiman Marcus“>Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdales
