By Rose-Ann Cullen, 28th April 2016

For flawless makeup that flatters all ages, look no further than Kevyn Aucoin. With beautiful shades and textures, in luxury formulas, the range is the perfect choice for all. The perfect choice for the makeup on set of our Changing Face of Beauty shoot, the brand ambassadors crafted a range of stunning looks from naturally glowing, to a bold red lip. Recreate your favourite looks below.

The Red Lip

A classic red lip exudes feminity and looks stunning on all ages. Kevyn Aucoin’s Lip Satin gives a beautiful wash of semi-matte coverage, whilst the doe-foot applicator makes it easy to get the perfect application every time.

Line lips with the Flesh Tone Lip Pencil in Cerise to create a clean lip line and then fill in with Lip Satin in Velvet, classic, suit-all scarlet red. 

To balance the look, keep eyes simple and define with a slick of Essential Mascara and a little eye liner blended across the lashes.

“Beauty means more than just ‘looking pretty’, it means that you have an inner confidence as well.” – Suzy, Model

The Defined Eye

For a beautiful evening look play up your features with key makeup staples. A touch of shimmer across lids teamed with a liner applied and blended as softly or as smoky as you dare are the perfect complement to a fresh pop of lip colour. 

For this look Kevyn Aucoin’s Loose Shimmer Shadow was dusted across lids for an eye-opening effect, whilst the Precision Eye Definer lined lash lines. Applied lightly to Nicola for soft definition, but built up for a strong smoky look on Sarah and Yasmin. Balance eyes with a touch of natural definition to brows and finish the look with a slick of your favourite Expert Lip Colour.

“I think beauty is being able to feel happy and confident in your own skin, looking & feeling good” – Sarah, Model

The Natural Base

Instead of hiding behind a mask of makeup, use Kevyn Aucoin’s buildable formulas to enhance and highlight your features. 

Lightly smooth away imperfections with the Sensual Skin Fluid Foundation; with a serum-light texture it dries to a skin-mimicking, glowy finish which offers lasting hydration throughout the day. Lightly define contours with the Sculpting Powder, blending seamlessly under cheekbones for a softly sculpted effect. Finally a touch of Celestial Liquid Highlighter pressed over the high points of the face will bring radiance and lightness to the complexion, without an obvious strobed effect. 

“It’s best not to dwell on your flaws. I take no notice! Embrace your body and love yourself.” – Nicola, Model
