I’m always on the lookout for the best makeup products and last week while in NYC, I found one I had to tell you all about! While chatting with a makeup artist from the Boston area, I found out how much she loved the Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer (how ’bout that name??). She told me that this product had a buildable formula that looked natural and would stay put, but I would be the judge of that!
The next day, I headed to Bergdorf Goodman and talked with the Kevyn Aucoin rep there, she was very helpful and told me that a great way to apply the enhancer is by mixing it with a little eye cream and using it to brighten up your under eye area. You could also mix it with moisturizer just to enhance to look of your skin and give you very light coverage. We tried on a few colors and I purchased it right away.
Although pricey ($48 for a jar), a little goes a LONG way. I love the buildable and velvety feel. You can use it for light spot or undereye coverage if you’re just wearing tinted moisturizer or even no foundation at all! Or you can layer it to cover up any problem areas. I’ve applied it using my finger, a brush, and a sponge and all work well. A great bonus? I loooove the smell which is perfumey, but light.
I’m not going to lie to you guys, when I took the pictures below, I had NOT been feeling the best so I sorta had to force myself to get ready and smile. But I still wanted to show you what it looks like to use the skin enhancer. These pics are unedited and taken after right after I finished getting ready (and felt sick to top it off!). I mixed the product with a little foundation, used it under my eyes and to spot treat. I would recommend the skin enhancer mostly to anyone looking for a good undereye formula or buildable spot coverage.
