The Kevyn Aucoin The Scultpting and Celestial Powders in Medium and Candlelight respectively are raved about in the beauty world and are considered the Holy Grail products of contouring and highlighting – I finally understand why.
I find a taupe color to be best for contouring and Medium nails it perfectly with its grayish undertone which makes it perfect for mimicking shadows on the skin. I feel this color works with most skin tones.
Candlelight is a finely milled highlighter in a champagne color. It gives the face a subtle angelic glow wherever it is applied. It does not settle into pores or accentuate lines. Most of all, it is not shimmery and does not give off a shiny/oily look to the face.
Only a small amount of product is needed from each of the Medium and Candlelight at a time so they will both last for ages, which easily justifies their price tags in my opinion.
