Beauty might bring happiness, but happiness brings beauty
Kevyn Aucoin, make-up artist
Kevyn Aucoin Neo-Setting Powder, a beautiful three-in-one, silky translucent setting powder that takes skin from matte to satin to radiant in one swipe.
Apply light to areas you want to bring forward.
Set your makeup dial up or down with the first ever, three-in-one flexible setting powder. The exclusive Neo-gradient technology takes any makeup look from matte to satin to radiant with just one swipe. The silky, featherweight, triple-milled powder formula glides on to even skin tone and blur imperfections, and never looks powdery or cakey.
How to use:
Use the Neo-Powder Brush to sweep across The Neo-Setting Powder once, and apply a sheer veil to the face for an all over ethereal glow.
Swish The Neo-Powder Brush through the semi-matte part of The Neo-Setting Powder and apply to glow-set your makeup.
Slide the Base/Shadow Brush through the middle to shiny side of The Neo-Setting Powder and apply to high points of the cheekbones, brow bones, bridge of nose and cupid’s bow for naturally highlighted skin.
*Use the powder in sheer layers for the best result. There is a gold overspray over the area of more intense shine that will disappear after the first use. This is solely to show the side of The Neo-Setting Powder that will create more of a shiny highlighting effect.
Applying the Neo-Setting Powder to high points of the face will enhance the bone structure.
A true Holy Grail! Wakes a face up in a beautiful tone. Absolutely love it. Maybt you only need a smaller purse size to carry in your handbag.

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.
This palette by Kevyn Aucoin Beauty includes everything you need to sculpt, highlight and define your face, eyes and brows. Designed to work on all skin tones, this full-size collection of 12 classic eyeshadows, The Celestial Powder (which adds a subtle light to your skin) and The Sculpting Powder (which creates the perfect shadow with its effortless combination of brown, red and grey pigments) glide effortlessly onto your skin.
