Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight & Sculpting Creamy Glow Duo
 
We all want life to be easier, we want our winged liner to be easier, we want eating healthy to be easier, we want our commute to work to be easier, and we want our lives to sometimes be easier. So when you have a compact that offers full proof makeup application, what couldn't be easier?


The Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight & Sculpting Creamy Glow Duo is one of all-time favourite products; it may not be as popular as the others but this little dynamic duo are my go too most days. This duo is features the creamiest dark, rich contour and the most angelic, shimmery highlight I have ever tried, they glide onto the face and are incredibly easy to blend with fingers or a brush so it’s full proof. The creams are incredibly pigmented so a little really does a go long way, but if your like myself and enjoy a stronger contour and highlight, they can be built up without looking harsh or overlay noticeable. I like to apply mine with my fingers quite boldly to the areas of my face that I want to highlight/contour, and then go in with my Real Techniques' brushes to create the airbrushed/nautral effect.

The sculpting shade has been designed to accentuate and enhance your features, to your face a more sculpted appearance. It has been created with brown, grey and red pigments to basically mimic a natural shadow, so there’s no ill looking strange grey tone to your face nor will you have any resemblance to an orange umpa-lumpa.

The highlighting shade is ideal for really drawing attention to the high points of your face, for example the cheekbones, brow bone, temples, forehead etc, anywhere that the sun would naturally just caress around. The best way to describe the colouring of this highlighter is surreal, the highlighter provides a shimmer of the more pearlescent tones but also gives warmth back to your face thanks to the golden-apricot tinge within, without looking glittery.


Used in conjunction this duo will give a full face of make up a polished refined finish or a no makeup day face the cheekbones of  Angelina Jolie, or as close as you can get. I absolutely love using this duo and although it is slightly more expensive it is so worth it, you’re basically paying for a perfect, full proof, contour and highlight every time you do your makeup.
