Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder

There aren’t many products on the beauty market created specifically for contouring. There’s plenty of bronzers and blushes that you can get away with for this purpose, but on my very pale skin those don’t work very well most of the time. They either look too warm or too yellow or don’t have a matte finish.

On the other hand Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder is a finely milled matte powder. The colour is neutral, slightly cool toned brown. When blended, it has a grey undertone. It’s pigmented but easy to work with as it blends easily.

The shade is, I find, a bit demanding. The colour creates the look of a natural shadow. You need to know how to contour (and I’m not really an expert!) in order to get the most out of it and avoid looking “dirty”. I find it easier to start with a light hand and slowly build the colour. I use it to sculpt my face and cheeks as well as eyes (it’s a perfect colour for crease). This way it works great for me. I love pairing it with a cool toned blush, these often look much warmer on my skin then in the pan, but combined with Sculpting Powder they look closer to their pan colour.

Overall, a must have product from Kevyn Aucoin if you are into conturing and have pale skin. It retails at £35/3.1g.

  1. Pravo savršenstvo od proizvoda, na vrhu mi je svih lista želja, nemam nijedan dobar proizvod ove namene, a mislim da bi ovaj za moju svetlu put bio fenomenalan :)

    1. Nisam sigurna :) Mislim da bi mogao da prodje kao blagi kontur jer se lepo nadogradjuje. Zavisi koliko prirodno volis kontur da izgleda, za veci kontrast i dramaticniji izgled mozda nece odgovarati. Pokusavam da se setim, ali mislim da nisam videla nigde review na kozi tamnijoj od N15-20.
