Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer | #FoundationFiles

Gone were the days where foundation would be the one product I’d never change.. 


Nowadays - I’m up for trying anything! 

I have quite a few foundations I use in rotation, so I figured over the next few weeks I’d share them with you. Today I wanted to kick things off with a firm favourite - Kevyn Aucoin’s Sensual Skin Enhancer. I’ve been using this foundation on and off for years but realised I’ve never dedicated a post to these mini miracles. What I love about this product is that you can incorporate it into your make up routine however you like. Now let’s not beat around the bush - This CAN be a very heavy foundation and that’s down to the consistency but used in the right ways this can be as sheer or as full coverage as you desire. 

Whether you use this product alone or mix in a little moisturiser to lighten the texture the finish is 'your skin but better'. It’s smooth, sits well on the skin and lasts throughout the day/evening. I particularly love to use this foundation on a night out as it leaves your base looking beautiful and doesn't budge - Brilliant!  

I find the Sensual Skin Enhancer quite tough to work with if I use a brush, so my favourite way to apply this product is with a damp beautyblender.  In my opinion the moisture from the sponge helps to evenly distribute the foundation for that flawless finish. I also love to use this product as a concealer - I tend to warm up the product with my fingers and pat it on under the eyes. 

In terms of colour matching, I’m not one shade in this foundation and although that can sometimes be off putting the product itself more than makes up for it. S11 is probably the nearest colour to my complexion but I sometimes add a little S12 to warm things up and I opt for S10 under the eyes for extra brightness. 

While a lot of people may think these little pots are expensive you need such a tiny amount of product - Trust me a little goes a LONG way and this foundation will last you forever (Well in foundation years) 

Have any of you tried the Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer? Go and get colour matched or ask for a sample and you’ll see how awesome this is. 



Lots of Love

  1. Agree this is such a miracle in a pot!!

    A little bit of faffing figuring out how much moisturiser or primer to mix in to get a nice consistency to apply but the faffing is worth it when the end results are always amazing.

  9. I have bought it because the color selection was incredible and it sounded incredible...But I was very too quick on clicking the credit card because I should have looked into the ingredients! Mineral Oil is the first ingredient of this product and I just try to stay away from that for everything I put on my face!
