Sculpting and contouring has a long history in the beauty community. Although it has risen to prominence in recent years and become a staple step in many beauty routines, it was once a technique reserved for makeup artists to be used on models and celebrity clients.
Kevyn Aucoin had been practicing sculpting and defining with makeup for decades before the launch of his eponymous line – which in turn has become known for its array of contouring products which truly reflect natural skin tones.
Contouring is all about dimensions. It’s about highlighting and deepening certain areas of the face for more drama and more definition
Kevyn Aucoin – The Art of Makeup
Adding depth and highlighting the complexion allowed Aucoin to create a divine, sculpted effect which accentuated the bone structure of those he worked with for a truly captivating, dramatic look.
The secret to a beautiful, skin-like contour is the perfect cool-toned shade which mimics the natural undertones of our skin. Before the launch of Kevyn Aucoin Beauty, finding such a product was near impossible.
Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder
The Sculpting Powder was one of the first products to be released as part of Kevyn Aucoin Beauty line up and has possessed cult beauty product status ever since. Even though more and more brands have released their own contouring products, The Sculpting Powder is still a firm favourite for makeup artists, beauty editors and beauty lovers.
Unlike many contouring products, The Sculpting Powder truly mimics shadows on the complexion. Kevyn Aucoin’s original formulation blends brown, red and grey pigments to create a natural shadow on the skin, creating the illusion of a more defined, sculpted visage.
The sheer formula glides over the skin and blends seamlessly for an ultra-natural, undetectable contour.
The brilliant @salihughesbeauty pictured wearing our Sculpting Powder in Light. The original ‘contour’ Powder, Kevyn’s formula was created to mimic shadows. Originally only available in ‘Medium’, two new shades were added to our line in the last couple of years- ‘Light’ and ‘Deep’. Brilliant as eye shadows as well as Sculpting the face ❤️
From The Sculpting Powder, Kevyn Aucoin has developed a whole range of sculpting products which enhance and define without looking heavy on the skin. Whether you want to add subtle definition or create a truly dramatic, contoured look, Kevyn Aucoin contour products are the secret to a beautifully sculpted complexion.
