Talking about a face highlighter might not be the most suitable for today's weather (it's gong to hit 100 degrees), but a light summery glow is always a good thing, right? Especially one that comes in a powder form (thus no stickiness), and is neither Cullen white nor Kardashian orange.
This is the magic of Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Powder - Candlelight. As you can see, there are no visible particles even in the closeup shot. The pressed powder is wonderfully fine and soft, and its base shade is a natural light/medium, but transparent enough so it works for a wide range of skin tones. I consider it an evening product, but it might just be me. Kevyn Aucoin's Candlelight is a very subtle product that glows more than shines or shimmers.
I've tried every highlighter brush I own and all of them worked well. You can also use Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight with a small blush brush (try Hakuhodo small Yachiyo), a duo-fiber or a flat top to push the powder into the skin. Even a foundation sponge can work (though it's not my personal favorite method. I prefer a minimal amount of product). I tried taking swatch photos but wrists were not meant to be highlighted, so I'll have to do a makeup look using Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight to try and capture the effect. Hopefully soon.
Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Powder - Candlelight ($42) is vailable from Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, Nordstrom, Beauty.com and Dermstore.com.
