Though we all know a real tan is bad for us, there’s nothing quite like a sunkissed glow to lift our skin (and spirits). A summer holiday in a sleek, streamlined palette, Kevyn Aucoin’s The Matte Bronzing Veil contains finely milled bronze and warming terracotta pigments to lend your complexion an enviable, natural-looking radiance – with no trace of glitter or glimmer. Ideal for all those who prefer their make up matte, choose from two beautifully believable shades – Desert Days and Desert Nights – then dust all over your face with a fluffy powder brush, focus on the ‘high points’ where you’d naturally catch the sun, or use as a sculpting powder to enhance the look of shadows for a subtle, contouring effect.
A light dusting of Kevyn Aucoin’s The Matte Bronzing Veil is all it takes to feign a fortnight spent frolicking in glorious sunshine. With warm olive and terracotta tones, this sheer buildable powder blends seamlessly for undetectable enhancement. With a lightweight, buttery texture, this can be layered to achieve the desired effect – from a hint of golden tint, to a decadent deep bronze – just blur over face (and neck!) for a flawlessly, flattering finish. The man responsible for some of the world’s most iconic make up looks, Kevyn Aucoin’s philosophy was to enhance, not detract from the natural beauty of his (supermodel) canvases. His approach permeates this range of stand-out products, which transcend trends and allow every woman to look timeless, confident and strikingly sophisticated. Watch out Cindy Crawford…
