The Kevyn Aucoin Jewel Pop Palette Face & Eye Face Formula
To begin with, the eyeshadow pigments are intense, and their textures are rich and velvety. Moreover, the formula feels creamy. As a result, the shadows blend easily. And, the shadows stick to your skin. As a result, they are perfect for layering. Furthermore, you can use the shadows dry, or wet. Used wet, the shadows will give you a more intense color payoff. In addition, they will wear longer than if used dry.
The sculpting contour is a finely milled powder. Also, it feels creamy and is easy to blend. Finally, the blush and the highlighter are in one pan. Each shade can be used separately. On the other hand, you can swirl the two shades together for a customized glow.
The Shades In the Kevyn Aucoin Jewel Pop Palette
To begin with, Citrine, a pink duo-chrome shade, has a metallic finish. Moreover, Citrine is a beautiful highlighter shade. So, use it on your brow bones, and in the inner corners of your eyes.
Next, Emerald, a teal shade, has a pearlescent finish. First, Emerald can be worn on your eyelids. I like it on the outer corners of your eyes, and the outer third of your eyelids. Also, you can use Emerald in your crease. Moreover, you can smoke Emerald out, from the outer corners of you eyes. And, don’t forget, you can also line your lower lash lines with Emerald.
Third, Mahogany, a deep brown shade, has a pearlescent finish. First of all, use Mahogany in your crease. Also, I love to use this deep brown shade to line my lower lash lines. Next, wear it in the outer corners of your eyes. Last, don’t forget to wet any of the shades for a more intense, longer lasting color. In this way, line your upper lash lines too!
Next, Moonstone, a light, warm beige shade, has a matte finish. First, use Moonstone in the inner corners of your eyes. Also, I like to use Moonstone as an eyeshadow base. So, wear it all over your eyelids, and up through your crease to your brow bones.
Then, Ruby, a red plum shade, has a pearlescent finish. Ruby, my birthstone, is a versatile shade. First, wear Ruby in your crease, and bring it up as a transition shade. Also, wear Ruby in the outer corners of your eyes. Also, bring it down and line your lower lash lines. Another thing you can do, is wear Ruby all over your eyelids. Or, wear it on half of your eyelids. I would wear it on the outer third of my eyelids. Finally, I would dab Ruby over my crease shade, in the outer third of the transition.
Finally, Topaz, a warm bronze shade, has a pearlescent finish. First, Topaz can be worn as a highlight shade. So, wear Topaz on the inner corners of your eyes, and on your brow bones. And, use it under your lower lash lines. Also, wet Topaz, and wear it all over your eyelids. Also, wet, use Topaz in your crease. Smoke it out. and, finally, line your lower lash lines. In order to do this, spray your eyeliner brush, and dab it into the shadow. Wet, Topaz , or any of the shades, become more intense. And, they have more dimension.
The Sculpting Contour Powder
To start with, the Sculpting Contour Powder has brown, red, and grey pigments that work together to create natural-looking shading and dimension. Also, The Sculpting Contour Powder, a medium tan shade, has a matte finish. Finally, with a contour brush, put the Sculpting Contour Powder on the hollows of your cheeks. Also, I use it under my chin. Then, I define my face, using the contour powder around my hairline. Also, use it the make your nose look thinner. Place the powder on either side of your nose, in a straight, vertical line. Or, you can use it under the tip of your nose. In addition, I like to use it in the crease of my eyes to create more definition.
To begin with, the blush/highlighter shade is called Rose Quartz. Both shades are split in one pan. The Rose, in Rose Quartz, a pink-mauve shade, has a matte finish. Furthermore, use a blush brush, and put the pink-mauve shade on the apples of your cheeks to make your cheeks pop. Then, the Quartz, in Rose Quartz, a champagne peach shade, has a luminous finish. The Quartz shade is your highlighter shade. As a result, use the highlighter on the high points of your face. First, use the highlighter on your upper cheekbones. Also, place the highlighter, down the center of your nose (in between the contour shade!) . Moreover, I love to put the highlighter on my Cupid’s bow. Finally, I also put some highlighter on my brow bones.

The reason this palette is so great, is it has all you need for your face and eyes in one palette!
Furthermore, Kevyn Aucoin is well-known for his contour powder. For one thing, he created the perfect contour shade. In other words, it isn’t too brown. And, it isn’t too grey. Actually, it is the best contour shade I’ve ever used! Also, the finely milled formula is creamy and easy to use.
Moreover, I love that the blush and highlighter are in one pan. In this way, you can use both shades together. All you have to do is swirl your brush into both shades. Then, apply the “shades” for the perfect glow! Or, you can use the highlighter side on the high points of your face. And, use the blush on the apples of your cheeks.
