This spring sees the launch of the Featherlights makeup collection by Kevyn Aucoin Beauty. Geraldo Frazao, the lead makeup artist for Kevyn Aucoin Beauty in London, is a renowned natural talent, especially in blending and contouring. On meeting him, we were inspired to take a close look at the brand.
Geraldo describes himself as an “artist who works with make-up”, with his work having featured in numerous international glossy titles. He was the personal makeup artist for one of the most powerful fashion icons of our time, Isabella Blow. We have featured below some of our favourite products from the Featherlights Collection:
Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Skin Liquid Lightening
Celestial Skin Liquid Lightening adds Starlight to its line-up of colours. This vèry lightweight cream and gel hybrid formula can be used to illuminate, or alternatively as a skin treatment primer and foundation developer. Blended with foundation, it achieves an instant radiant looking skin, or if used alone, it creates a wonderfully fresh dewy glow.
Skin care meets the key to complexion perfection in Kevyn Aucoin’s Celestial Skin Liquid Lighting – a gel/lotion hybrid that blends seamlessly to give skin a beautiful, lit-from-within lustre (without any shimmer or glitter)! Infused with anti-oxidant Raspberry Stem Cell Extract and Bearberry Complex, the silicone-free, skin-friendly formula protects against environmental attack to prevent the damage caused by everyday exposure to pollutants and free radicals. The warm, champagne hue makes this flattering for all skin tones and textures, while its long-wear (12hour) formula doesn’t crease or migrate into wrinkles, so you stay looking flawless from dawn until dusk. Sexy, subtle and sophisticated – think Cate Blanchett as Galadriel in Lord of the Rings. After all, who doesn’t want to resemble an Elvish queen (sans spiky ears)?
Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder Light
Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder Deep
The Sculpting Powder in the new shades of Light and Deep has been launched to add an even broader choice of colours to its spectrum of skin tones. This product is key to achieve a sculpted, well-contoured face.
If you long for razor sharp cheekbones but yours are a bit on the blunt side, Kevyn Aucoin’s The Sculpting Powder is all you need to fake a Kate Moss worthy pair. With a unique combination of pigments, this matte powder creates the illusion of shadows without looking chalky (or orange!). Just choose from three shades; Light, Medium or Deep depending on your skin tone (and the preferred intensity of the effect).
Kevyn Aucoin Guardian Angel
The ultimate way to grant skin an ethereal gleam, this stunning silvery-toned crème-to-powder highlighter lends light to cheekbones, collar bones, or anywhere deserving of attention. Perfect for subtly ‘strobing’, this applies and blends seamlessly – just blur with fingertips to achieve an angelic glow.
The Guardian Angel highlighter compact is a must-have to easily create the strobing makeup look for spring ‘16. With its ultra-creamy texture and lightweight formula, it creates a subtle shimmer, while miraculously blurring lines, creases and imperfections.
Kevyn Aucoin Lip Gloss Starlight
Kevyn Aucoin Lip Gloss Candlelight
Inspired by the best-loved ‘Celestial’ powders, these sheer lip lustres create the illusion of enhanced lip fullness thanks to miniscule, pearlescent particles and a glossy (but non-sticky) finish. Incredible when worn alone, these can be layered over lip colour to create a beautiful, ‘plumped’ effect.
The Lip Gloss collection has had two additions to their colour line-up – the warm tones of Starlight and Candlelight. With their patented applicator that mimics the look and feel of a makeup artist’s pinkie finger, these rich but lightweight glosses are formulated with vitamins to ensure lips are protected and well moisturised against the summer sun.
