Kevyn Aucoin contour powder

I have dreamed about this powder for so long before I was able to purchase it. No one talks about this brand anymore in social media but I still believe in it as I believe in the name of this professional make up artist.

I haven’t tried a lot of contour powders I must admit. But when I found this it is just amazingly perfect.
It is matte and it has the right tones to just mimic the true shadows which enhances the face. It’s the perfect shade of browns, reds and gray. This contour powder is so easy to blend. And it is so soft that you can build it up how much you would like the intensity.

Looking at the description of the product on their website, there are a lot of ways on how to use this powder. I am surprised to know that it is not exclusive for the face only. It can also be used as an eyeshadow on the lid in order to sculpt the eye crease, to line the eyes I believe as an eyeliner, as an eyeshadow base and as a brow fill color.

Kevyn Aucoin Beauty was started in 2001 and founded by the iconic and legend Make up Artist Kevyn Aucoin. He believes in self expression and the transformative power of make up. He came to New York and applied for Vogue magazine. And finally became the first make up artist to be on the cover of the same magazine.

I love his philosophy of that he believes that all women are beautiful and make up is his tool to help discover that beauty. His work has been highly-acclaimed, from the music videos, backstage, album cover and fashion advertising.

He actually pioneered PRO artistry and made Contouring mainstream!

He’s the author of the bestselling make up books in which he shared his make up techniques:

  • The Art of Make Up 1994
  • Making Faces 1997
  • Face Forward 2001

He passed away in 2002 after launching his legacy brand: Kevyn Aucoin Beauty

I have an utmost respect to this legendary artist and I think that even the Beauty Brand speaks for itself and Kevyn’s make up philosophy. The brand is all about inclusivity, modern, luxury and quality, and promotes self-expression. There are products not only for make up artists but also for each individual who uses make up.

This is not the first time I have written an article about him, In fact I did feature him in one of my articles at the beginning back when I write articles in italian.

This is the only contour powder that I own as to date but as you can probably notice on the photo, it is really old. I don’t contour as much as I did before to be honest. I probably will just repurchase this again because I have already found this, and this the one and only perfect contour powder for me!

I wish I can purchase more of the brand’s other products because I am truly in awe and I really do want to try some other ones but unfortunately the prices are high. And I rarely do purchase high end make up products unless they are on sale hahaha! Although I think that this is worth every single cent. From the luxurious packaging (it also has a velvet pouch and it looks really elegant!) up unto the product itself!

The work of this pro make up artist is admirable and I always appreciate people who know their craft. Kevin dedicated his life into pursuing his craft and talent, sharing it to the world to make a difference.
