When it comes to autumn/fall beauty, hydration is key. The cold weather can be harsh on your skin, causing it to appear dull and dry – and let’s face it, nobody’s got time for that! Thanks to make-up mogul, Kevyn Aucoin, your seasonal beauty woes are solved. The Kevyn Aucoin Foundation Balm is a new revelation in make-up hydration. But what sets it apart from other foundations on the market? Enriched with Vitamin E and Hyaluronic Acid, this Foundation Balm has the nourishing properties of a moisturiser, whilst keeping your skin flawless, smooth and even.

The multi-purpose balm blends effortlessly into the skin, providing buildable, full coverage that doesn’t feel thick or cakey. With a creamy consistency that sets with a matte finish, this foundation glides onto the face fuss-free and can be used on blemishes or darker areas of the skin as a concealer or all over as a foundation. What’s more? It has exceptional staying power, meaning you won’t need to re-apply during the day.

Day to Night Autumn/Fall Make-up Look with Kevyn Aucoin

So, whether you’re looking to perfect your everyday make-up look this autumn/fall or getting ready to turn up the glamour, we show you how to create the ultimate day to night face using Kevyn Aucoin’s luxury Foundation Balm. Watch and learn...

Day: Fresh Faced

Master the ‘no-makeup’ make-up look and create a fresh, glowing complexion, perfect for every day.

  1. Start by gently patting the Kevyn Aucoin Glass Glow Face Highlighter in Prism Rose along your cheek and brow bones to form a dewy base before foundation (or after to highlight the highest points of your face).
  2. Next, apply the Foundation Balm using the domed make-up brush provided, until you’ve achieved your desired level of coverage.
  3. Set your base with the Kevyn Aucoin Loose Powder and Large Powder Brush. The powder works to minimise the appearance of fine lines and smooths out your complexion. Not just this, but it comes complete with a unique inner lid to prevent your powder from spilling out when you open it!
  4. Taking the Blush Brush, contour your face with the Kevyn Aucoin The Art of Sculpting and Defining Volume III Palette to create definition and structure.
  5. Finish by applying the highlighter powders in shades Flash and Beam to your cheekbones and the bridge of your nose for a shimmery, glowing finish.

Evening: Glowing Glamour

Dial up the glam factor and enhance your everyday look with a soft smoky eye, made for your next evening out.

  1. Begin by brightening your complexion with Kevyn Aucoin The Etherealist Super Natural Concealer, using the Duet Concealer Brush for instantly flawless application.
  2. Next, take the Precision Eye Definer in shade Kobicha to line the eyelid. Use the sponge side to blend out around the lash line and create a soft, smoky effect.
  3. Add a touch of drama to your eyes with the Emphasize Eye Design Palette in shade 'Focused', blending out for a subtle yet effective metallic finish.
  4. Finally, complete your evening look with lashings of Volume Mascara for thick and full party lashes.
