Kevyn Aucoin The Sculpting Powder

Saturday, March 02, 2013

There aren't a whole lot of good sculpting powders I've found out there. I know people say you can just use bronzers, but I find them a little too warm and sometimes too orangey. I heard a lot of good things about Kevyn Aucoin's The Sculpting Powder and decided to give it a try. I think it does take a little practice using it, but once you get used to how it goes on, it seems to work very well. The color is a good taupey-brown so you don't get the orange tone.

I do admit that when I first put it on, it looked like a had mud on my face. But when I got a hang of how the powder goes on, it looks like a natural shadow. I found that I can use less blush so that my whole cheek doesn't end up pink. And it gives my face more dimension. I have rounded cheeks, a wide nose, and a double-chin. So this sculpting powder helps give me the illusion of cheek bones, a skinnier nose, and a smaller chin.

I would definitely recommend it if you don't mind taking an extra few mintutes to do the sculpting. There are lots of sculpting instructions and videos online, if you just do a Google or YouTube search. I use three different brushes to apply the powder to three different areas on my face. An angled blush brush for just below my cheekbones, a medium-sized powder brush for my jawline and doublechin area, and a small powder brush on either side of my nose. That seems to do the trick.

I know that some people even use this to contour their eyes, like eyeshadow. I tried that, and it seems to accentuate the dark circles under my eyes, for some reason. So I stay away from that area with this powder. 

But I like this powder so much that I am willing to try other things by Kevyn Aucoin, such as The Celestial Powder and The Sensual Skin Enhancer. I'll let you know what I think of those if I end up getting them.

I've actually started using the Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder as eyeshadow now. I wasn't using it before because it seemed to accentuate the dark circles and bags under my eyes. But I got a new concealer, the Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer, which seems to be working pretty well. And now I just love using the Sculpting Powder as my eyeshadow. I've tried going back to other eye shadows that I have, and I love using the Scupting Powder better than any of them!
