We all jump at the chance to streamline our makeup bags and find products with multi-uses that look genuinely beautiful on our skin. Finding a multi-use product which is heralded as a makeup kit staple by some of the most influential makeup artists in the world is even more exciting.

The Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer is such a product. An ultra-pigmented, rich cream-based formula, the Sensual Skin Enhancer is the ultimate multi-use product.

A must-have cult classic, the Sensual Skin Enhancer is the one product Kevyn Aucoin is known for. Taking inspiration from the radiant, flawless skin of geisha women whilst visiting Japan, Kevyn set out to create a product which could emulate their perfect, youthful complexions.

The Sensual Skin Enhancer is the result of Kevyn’s curiosity. Richly pigmented, waterproof and wonderfully versatile, this unique product has reached such acclaim in the beauty industry quite simply because there is nothing quite like it.

How to use the Sensual Skin Enhancer

Originally released as a foundation, the Sensual Skin Enhancer can be used in so many ways depending on how it is applied and what it is mixed with. Enriched with Honey and Jojoba Oil, the whipped-cream texture glides over the skin, leaving behind beautiful coverage that does not appear heavy or cakey.

Start by taking a small amount of product from the pot onto the back of your hand for full control over your product. Applying the Sensual Skin Enhancer this way will help you ensure you’re never using too much and helps to warm up the product before it is blended into the skin.

As a foundation

Originally intended as a foundation, Kevyn himself supposedly applied Sensual Skin Enhancer all over the complexion, using the rich, thick base to create a flawless, radiant complexion that still looked like skin. Perfect for editorial work and photography, the finish in reality can look a little heavy on the skin. If you long for the super high coverage Skin Enhancer is capable off, apply with your fingers to truly work the product into your skin.

If you prefer a slightly more sheer, radiant base, Sensual Skin Enhancer is beautifully smooth when blended with The Sensual Skin Primer. Simply combine both products on the back of your hand and apply onto clean skin with The Foundation Brush.

As a concealer

Perfect for correcting and concealing blemishes, imperfections and dark circles, the Sensual Skin Enhancer works beautifully for precise, pinpoint concealing. Take the product from the back of your hand and place over any imperfections. The cream formula will set on the skin and last all day thanks to its waterproof, sweat resistant formula.

Lightweight and virtually undetectable on the skin, using the Sensual Skin Enhancer as a concealer will leave your skin looking flawless and beautifully even.

For sculpting and defining

Smooth and blendable, the Sensual Skin Enhancer in one shade lighter and one darker than your skin tone can be used to sculpt the face. Using the darker tone underneath your cheekbones, along the jawline and on your temples can accentuate the natural shadows of your face, creating a more defined, sculpted appearance.

A lighter shade can be used to highlight and accentuate your features. When blended underneath the eyes, on top of the cheekbones and down the bridge of the nose, the Sensual Skin Enhancer instantly lifts the complexion and perfectly compliments any sculpting work.

With so many uses, the Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer is the perfect product to help you to slim down your makeup collection. Wonderfully versatile, the Enhancer continues to have a dedicated, loyal following in the beauty community. Available in sixteen skin-flattering shades, catering for a wealth of undertones, the Sensual Skin Enhancer is an essential in any beauty lovers collection.
